iCloud Photo Library: Explained
iCloud Photo Library — currently in beta — was designed to keep all your personal photos and videos safe, synced, and available on all of your devices.
That sounds simple, but the idea of a hybrid library, where our content seamlessly spans the internet and our iPhones, iPads, and Macs — where the line between online and offline blurs — can be tough to grasp.
For years many of us have manually, meticulously managed our photos and videos — transferring them from our camera and phones over cables and local networks, organizing them into folders, backing them up to drives, and hoping beyond hope each time that nothing would be damaged or lost.
Various online services have popped up to help, but often they're just as manual or they're attached to social networks whose views on privacy might not match our own.
iCloud Photo Library aims to solve all of that, by keeping all of our pictures and videos available, and doing it all automatically.

How to fix the headphone jack in your iPhone: The ultimate guide
So your out of warranty iPhone has a busted headphone jack. If you'd rather fix it on your own instead of buying a new iPhone, you've come to the right place.
The symptoms of a broken headphone jack are similar in all models, and can include audio cutting in and out or no audio at all. In some cases, loud speaker audio won't work because your iPhone thinks headphones are plugged in when they're really not.
If any of these issues sound like something you've experienced, we'll walk you step by step through the repair process. We'll also link you to all the parts and tools you'll need to get the job done right the first time. The difficulty of a headphone jack replacement will depend on the iPhone model, but if you're up for the challenge, follow along, find your model, and let's get started!

Secret Apple Watch controls: How you'll navigate what's on your wrist!
The Apple Watch only has two hardware buttons but, just like the iPhone, there's a lot you can do with them!
Tim Cook introduced the Apple Watch back in September and while much was shown off, much still remains to be seen. What we do know is that it has two buttons — a digital crown that can also be pushed, and a traditional hardware button beneath it (or above it if worn on the right wrist). Rumor has it, though, when you combine multiple and long presses, there'll be a lot you can do with it.

What would you change about iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus?
If Apple sticks to pattern, we've got a similarly designed iPhones 6s coming our way this year, and a redesigned iPhones 7 coming our way next.
It's been six months since the launch of the current generation iPhones, so it seems like as good a time as any to start dreaming about the next. From 2007 to now we've gone from 3.5 to 5.5 inches, 480x320 to 1920x1080, EDGE to LTE-Advanced, dumb mics and buttons to Siri and Touch ID, and much, much more. Where could we go next?
