iOS 13 Tips & News

How To: Share iCloud Drive Folders to Collaborators or as ZIP Files to Anyone from Your iPhone

In the iOS 13.4 update, Apple added folder-sharing capabilities in the Files app. That means you can share multiple documents at the same time instead of doing it one by one. But that's not all — you can share folders with numerous contacts and even enforce access and permission settings.

How To: Save Cellular Data by Using Wi-Fi Only for FaceTime Audio & Video Calls

This may not matter to you if you only FaceTime from your iPhone occasionally, but if you're FaceTiming every day on a limited data plan from your cellular provider, you're going to want to conserve as much data as possible by making sure that you're connected to Wi-Fi only — especially if they are video calls.

News: Apple Releases iOS 13.4 for Developers, Includes New Memoji Stickers, Updated Mail Toolbar, CarKey API & More

Apple just released iOS 13.4 to registered developers. The update comes just hours after news broke that iOS 13.4 would hit all compatible devices on March 24. This update is the GM (golden master), which makes it the same build as the official release we expect to see on the 24th, although Apple does refer to it as "beta 6" on the dev site.

How To: Record Your iPhone's Screen with Audio — No Jailbreak or Computer Needed

The only official way to record your iPhone's screen before iOS 11 was to hook it up to a Mac and use QuickTime Player to do the recording for you. If you wanted to record your iPhone's screen without an external device, there were unofficial apps you could use, like AirShou, but they required complicated installations. Now, in iOS 11, iOS 12, and iOS 13, Apple has an official, native screen recording tool.

How To: Reply to Texts on Your AirPods Without Siri Reading Out Your Messages

Your iPhone's "Announce Messages with Siri" feature is pure Apple. If you have a pair of connected AirPods (2nd generation or newer), Siri can read your messages to you as they come in, and you can say "Reply" to send one back. However, that natural flow is disrupted once Siri reads back your drafted text — but you can disable it to make the process smooth all the way through.

How To: Out of Storage? Your iPhone Can Automatically Delete Apps You Don't Use

If you've ever run out of storage on your iPhone, you know how much work it can be to free up space. But all that work isn't necessary. Your iPhone can remove content automatically so you won't get any "storage full" warnings anymore — as long as you enable the option first.

News: All the Apps That Work with iOS 13's Dark Mode

Out of the more than 200 new features Apple included with iOS 13, perhaps none is more anticipated than system-wide dark mode. Finally, we no longer need to blind ourselves when responding to an iMessage late at night or checking Reminders to see the following day's tasks. But this benefit also applies to third-party apps, so long as they are updated accordingly.

How To: Fix VPN Issues on iPhone to Ensure a More Private Internet Experience

A virtual private network is a necessary part of your arsenal if you're insistent on surfing the web privately and securely on your iPhone. The App Store is littered with hundreds of different VPN services that encrypt traffic and mask your IP address, but what they all have in common are connectivity issues.

How To: Offload Unused Apps to Free Up Storage Space on Your iPhone

When Apple revamped the storage management system in iOS 11, it built in a feature that lets you free up space on your iPhone in a more efficient manner. The option allows you to remove an app while preserving its data and documents should you choose to reinstall it later — and it can even do so automatically for unused apps when you're running out of space.

How To: 10 Privacy Settings in iOS 13 That Everyone Should Double-Check

Apple has seemingly always made it a priority to show how much it cares about user security and privacy — enough that it has a page dedicated to it, proclaiming that "privacy is a fundamental human right." It's true that there are few issues more important than user privacy when it comes to technology, and Apple only makes things better in iOS 13.

How To: Make All Your iPhone Apps Work with iOS 13's Dark Mode

The biggest feature in the iOS 13 update is a new system-wide Dark Mode. It's a simple switch that you enable to turn system menus and Apple apps dark, but it can also darken third-party apps if their developers elect to support it. Trouble is, most haven't yet, so half of your apps likely still have a blinding white background.
