NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Feel like your smartphone isn't so smart?  If you've expected more from your iPhone the folks at BuzzFeed have just what you need.

Here is BuzzFeed editor Jessica Misener's list of top, underused features on the iPhone equipped with iOS 7:

Track airplanes overhead:  Using the Siri feature you can see what planes are flying overhead.. Start by asking Siri ‘what planes are overhead?’ The voice command feature will show on screen the airline, flight number, altitude and angle the planes overhead are climbing. The information comes from satellites.

Shake to delete: Shake your phone and an 'undo typing' box will appear. If you change your mind after you hit 'undo,' shake your phone again for a 'redo tying' box.

Make your passcode a word: Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock. - Turn off the setting that says "Simple Passcode." A screen will appear prompting you to change your passcode, along with a full QWERTY keyboard. The next time you unlock your phone, the keyboard will appear instead of just the number pad.

Timestamps: To view the time a message was sent, touch and drag message bubbles to the left.

Compass: Go to your compass (could be in your settings) swipe left and the level comes up;use it to hang pictures, etc.
