How To: iPhone Not Charging Past 80%? Here's Why (& How to Fix It)

So you've been using iOS 13 for a little while and noticed your iPhone is pretty slow to charge. Using the 5-watt power adapter out of the box, in the time it used to take your iPhone to charge its battery to 100 percent, your iPhone is stuck at 80% or below instead.

How To: Shut Down & Restart Your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max

Burst mode on iPhone is a great way to ensure you capture the photo you truly want, especially when your subject is moving too fast. You'd be forgiven for thinking that Apple ditched the feature entirely on iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max, since a long-press of the shutter button now records video instead. However, burst mode is alive and well on your new iPhone — it's just hidden.

How To: There's a New App Library on Your iPhone's Home Screen — Here's Everything You Need to Know About It in iOS 14

Are you tired of endless rows and columns of apps on your iPhone's home screen? Before iOS 14, your only option was to hide apps inside of folders, uninstall them entirely, or use some sort of elaborate workaround. You could hide a few stock apps easily enough, but that's it.

How To: Hide the Picture-in-Picture Window on Your iPhone to Listen to Audio Only or Take a Video Break

Previously limited to apps like Facebook and YouTube as an in-app feature only, picture-in-picture mode is now an OS-level feature in iOS 14.

However, sometimes you only need to hear the audio and not see the video, and that's totally possible too.

How To: View the Battery Percentage Indicator on Your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max

There are plenty of jokes out there about the battery indicator on iPhones. Some people complain about their iPhones dying randomly at 11%, while others see hours of use at the 1% mark. Despite its inconsistencies, that battery percentage is a useful tell for how desperate you need a charger. There's just one problem: the icon is hiding on your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max.

News: You're Not Crazy, Your iPhone Is Making Strange Noises

Apple hasn't really changed notification sounds on the iPhone since iOS 7. So how come you hear strange pings, plunks, and doots coming from your iOS device?

How To: Your iPhone Has Hidden Indent Tools, Here's How to Find Them

Your computer has a lot of physical keys. Your iPhone has, at most, four hardware buttons, none of which are used for typing.
