Instagram is all about photos and videos, so why not save the photos and videos that we come across on Instagram and create a collection of sorts. For instance, you like a lot of photos of new cars on Instagram, so why not make a designated folder for it? Simply follow these steps.
Thanks to the Covid pandemic, Apple has made Exposure Notifications a standard part of the iPhone. It is an opt-in feature (since iOS 13.6) in the countries where it is supported by local health authorities.

You can set the time with two methods after you tap to add a new alarm or edit an existing one.
A small tweak to the volume buttons and you could become better at capturing spontaneous snaps or videos. Press the volume up button to take a quick shot in Burst Mode.

What good is the Hidden album in your Gallery if it’s visible? iOS14 has the ability to really hide the album with a simple toggle switch. Go to Settings > Photos > Hidden Album. Toggle the switch to the off position and the album will disappear in your Gallery. Enabling it will make it reappear again.
A caption can help you add context to your photos. Go to Photos and select a photo. Swipe it up and write a caption.
Facetime Picture-in-Picture makes multitasking a lot easier while on a Facetime call or watching a video. The call or the video window shrinks in size and you can then go to any other app from the homescreen. Resize the video window or drag it anywhere on the screen while working on another app.
