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.
