Apple released its first iOS 9.3 beta to developers in mid January, and it became available to the general public shortly after. The upgrade packs quite a bit more than the typical minor release, including Night Shift which, like f.lux, shifts your display colors to the warmer end of the spectrum at night.
Hardly a week goes by in which we don't hear about a major breach in cyber security, be it stolen credit card data from a major retailer like Target or Home Depot, to leaked personal data, like the celebrity photo leak on iCloud or the Sony Pictures hack. We've all heard about stolen identities and the nightmare the victims go through to get them back, constant attempts of corporate espionage, and cases of private citizens being surveilled under dubious circumstances and cyber stalking and bullying dramas seem to be a staple of both the Lifetime channel and the local news.
The iPhone has undoubtedly revolutionized mobile photography since it was released back in 2007. Not surprisingly, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus feature the best cameras Apple has ever released, but there are still many users who get less than satisfactory results when using their iPhone camera.
The photographer's mantra, "the best camera is the one you have with you", is exceedingly true but it certainly helps to know how to get the most out of your camera. Here are a few tips to help you take better photos with your iPhone.
Apple enthusiastically introduced Live Photos last September along with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The feature allows users to create short videos around their stills by recording 1.5 seconds of video before and after the still image. The resulting three second clip adds an extra dimension to the image, giving life to the moment. While many consider it gimmicky (and a storage hog), the feature certainly has its place and, like any other photo or video, fans of it will want to share their moments.
When the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus debuted last September, Live Photos was one of the highly touted new features that was introduced. The Live Photos camera setting allows users to liven up a photo and more fully capture a moment by recording 1.5 seconds before and after the still image. The three second clips are not so easy to share yet however, as viewing them currently requires an iOS 9 device.
