How To: Disable Amber, Emergency, Public Safety & Other Government Alerts on Your iPhone for Some Peace & Quiet

No, you should probably not turn off Amber, emergency, and public safety alerts on your iPhone. These government notifications are used to warn you about imminent natural disasters, active shooters, and terrorist attacks. More frequently, they ask for your help with child abductions. The alerts save lives, but it's still up to you whether you want to get them or not.

How To: Stop Audio Messages from Self-Destructing in iMessage So You Can Keep Them Forever

Apple has several ways for you to communicate in the Messages app aside from texting — and that includes audio messages. You can send a voice recording via iMessage by long-pressing the microphone icon just right of the input field and speaking. However, by default, these audio messages self-destruct after two minutes, which isn't good if you want them archived.

How To: Make Texts & iMessages Stand Out on Your iPhone with Bold Subject Lines

The subject line is a crucial part of an email, but you don't see it very often in texts. That's mostly because many people don't even know it can be done, and even if they do, why would they use it? Just like with emails, subject lines can make iMessages and SMS texts seem more important and more professional. Plus, they can help with organization and searching past messages, as well as make text bold.

How To: Get a Real System-Wide Dark Mode on Your iPhone for Less Battery Drain & More Night-Friendly Views

A universal dark theme has long been one of the most sought-after features we've been urging Apple to introduce for iOS. While this wish went unfulfilled with iOS 12, there's renewed hope that it'll finally touch down with iOS 13's arrival.

How To: Visual Voicemail Is Finally Here for iPhones on Google Fi — Get It Right Now!

In order to save money, a few compromises had to be made when switching to Google Fi on an iPhone. No more Wi-Fi calling, no automatic network-switching, no hotspots outside the US, and no more visual voicemail. I've found that last one particularly frustrating — but not anymore. Visual voicemail is now available on Fi for iPhone, but it's not like it was before Fi.

The music and sound effects that play in the background of any videos you edit helps set the tone, so it's essential to get it right.

How To: The Best Video Recording Apps for Your iPhone

If you have a modern iPhone, you have an excellent video recorder at your disposal. Every iPhone since the 6S has the ability to shoot in 4K resolution, and each new iteration has brought new capabilities to the table. But even the best mobile shooter can use a little extra help.

How To: Add Dissolves, Wipes, Fades & Other Video Transitions in Enlight Videoleap for iPhone

When editing in Enlight Videoleap for iOS, you can easily add cut, dissolve, iris, wipe, slide, and fade transitions to your video clips with just a few taps.

How To: Enable Dark Mode on Overcast for iPhone

We all listen to podcasts differently — on the way to work, at the gym, when drifting off to sleep. If you're in the latter group and rely on Overcast to help you with your nightly routine, you're probably sick of its blinding light theme keeping you up. That's why the app features a dark mode, to keep things easy on the eyes while picking out or playing an episode.

How To: Share Audio & Video Clips in Overcast to Show Off Your Favorite Podcasts

In a world of seemingly endless streaming services, podcasts continue to offer free, unlimited entertainment for all. When you find a podcast that's just too good to keep to yourself, sharing it with family and friends is inevitable, but how you share may determine whether or not they listen to it or not. Links alone aren't enough. Audio and video clips are how you get them sucked in.

Using a green screen is an affordable and easy way to transport your video to anywhere imaginable, even to places that don't exist.

Fortunately, Enlight Videoleap on iOS makes it easy.

How To: Use Keyframes to Animate Effects & Create Custom Transitions in Enlight Videoleap for iPhone

One of the most powerful features when editing videos with Enlight Videoleap is the keyframe tool, which allows you to add custom transitions, animate text, granularly adjust audio, move video clips across the frame, supplement effects, and more. If you want your video to change color over time or for captions to move across the screen, use keyframes in combination with Videoleap's other tools.

How To: Instantly Unlock Your iPhone with Face ID — No Swipe Needed

Face ID does an excellent job with keeping your iPhone safe, boasting a million-to-one odds against unauthorized access when compared to Touch ID, which is 20 times less secure. However, it's far from being truly hands-free, as you still need to swipe up the lock screen once it detects your face to access apps. But if you have a jailbroken iPhone X, this issue can easily be remedied.
