How to Track Shipments on iPhone and iPad Quickly

Apple’s iOS has a very cool feature which many of you might not be aware of – it’s the ability to track shipments instantly. The operating system, which powers Apple’s devices, has an inbuilt data detection feature that can get your work done comfortably.

iPhone/iPad automatically detects shipments and packages. Be it an email, a note, or a message, your tracking number or code is detected automatically and is converted into clickable links. Next, you’re smart enough to click on them to instantly track a package or shipment.
