How To: It's Easy to Stop Apps from Automatically Updating on Your iPhone

Since iOS 7, your iPhone automatically updates all of your apps, which is a wonderful thing ... until it's not.

How To: Catch Your iPhone's Hotspot Data Thief Red-Handed

I use my iPhone's personal hotspot all the time. Whether I need a connection on the train, in a coffee shop with no Wi-Fi, or when my friends don't have service, my personal hotspot is a lifesaver.

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.

How To: Get the Most Value from Your iPhone Trade-In

Phones these days are expensive. The iPhone 11 Pro is presumed to start at $999, following the iPhone XS and iPhone X's leads. One way to bring down that cost is to trade in your old iPhone, but there isn't one clear-cut way to do that.

How To: Apple Finally Fixed the Biggest Problem with the iPhone's Files App

The Files app was first introduced to the iPhone with the release of iOS 11.

News: Locations Where 'Look Around' Works Right Now in iOS 13's Apple Maps

Look Around in Apple Maps gives you a high-resolution 3D view of roads, buildings, and other imagery in an interactive 360-degree layout.

But Look Around isn't available everywhere yet.

How To: You No Longer Have to Open Settings to Switch & Connect to Wi-Fi on Your iPhone (FINALLY!)

Figuring out the Wi-Fi at a new location is challenging enough. Connecting to said Wi-Fi should be as easy as possible.

Luckily, there's now a much better way to do so.

News: You'll Need New Accessories for the iPhone 7, Even Though It Looks the Same

In years past, Apple has always waited two years before redesigning the iPhone, but this year they broke the trend. Aside from a few minor changes, the overall design and style of the iPhone 7 models is the same as last year's iPhone 6s models, and the iPhone 6 ones before that, so it's almost as though they've switched to a three-year cycle—just as early reports suggested.
