How to Swap an iPhone Upgrade on AT&T [Cross Upgrade]

Often one family member on an AT&T Mobility wireless plan is an early adopter, and must have the latest iPhone the minute it's available. Standard two-year contracts exceed the typical iPhone upgrade cycle, which is where a line swap comes into play. Staggering upgrade eligibility around 12 months apart means that someone on the plan gets a new iPhone every year.

Officially, upgrading on an eligible line, then swapping the new device to another line on the same plan is called a "cross upgrade". Cross upgrading from the iPhone 5 to the 5s can be achieved without even contacting AT&T, although to match the phone numbers to the correct device a quick call to customer service (611) is recommended. AT&T condones the practice of cross upgrading, as long as the wireless plan bill is in good standing and there's a line currently eligible to upgrade.

Take Better iPhone Photos with the Camera Grid

The iPhone camera is not only convenient, but the stock Camera app has several features to help improve image quality. On top of all this, there's a simple tool that can improve photo composition as well. The built-in Camera grid divides the frame into thirds both horizontally and vertically. This simplifies framing photos and makes it easy to snap interesting shots using the rule of thirds.

To start using the grid with iOS 7, switch it on by navigating to Settings -> Photos and Camera -> Grid -> ON. Next time the Camera app is opened, the grid will appear superimposed on the frame. Earlier versions of iOS had the grid toggle located directly inside the Camera app. Look for the Options button when taking a photo. Tap Options -> Grid -> ON. Now that the grid is activated, it's time to compose photos using the lines.

Using Burst Mode on the iPhone 5s

Burst mode is one of the latest additions to the stock iOS Camera app. With burst mode, limited to the iPhone 5s, images can be captured in Photo or Square mode at 10 frames per second. Up to 999 photos can be taken in a single burst. Recent interface improvements make it easy to choose the best photos from a burst group before discarding the rest to free up storage space.

Initiating burst mode requires no prior setup. Simply open the Camera app, frame your shot, and hold down the shutter release button. This works with the on-screen button and the volume buttons. Rapid fire captures will start, with matching sound effects and a frame count displayed on the screen. In the example above, 8 separate photos were taken in under a second.
