That includes disabling access to Safari, Camera, FaceTime, Siri, AirDrop, CarPlay, and more. With those restrictions in place, you won't have to worry about your kids seeing web pages, taking pictures, making video calls, performing voice commands, sending information, or controlling the car that you'd really rather they didn't.

How to lock focus in the Camera app for iPhone and iPad

The Camera app on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad comes with auto-exposure and auto-focus. That lets you get the proper balance and sharpness on most of your photos, most of the time. But sometimes whatever it is you're trying to photograph is too busy, too jittery, or otherwise too difficult for your camera to latch on to. When that happens you can try to focus and expose on an easier subject, lock that focus and exposure, move your camera, and then take your photo. It's called AE/AF Lock (auto-exposure/auto-focus lock) and it's especially good for kids, pets, macros with a lot of objects at different depths, and other challenging situations!

How to preview camera filters in real-time on your iPhone

The Camera app on your iPhone 5s can apply real-time filters to your photographs. That means you get to see their effects live in the preview screen, and make sure you like them, before taking your shot. Why filters? They're a great way to add some variety to your photos. While they aren't suited for every photo, they're definitely fun to play around with. Coming soon with iOS 8, you'll also be able to add third-party app filters to your photos, such as VSCO Cam and more!

How to use burst mode camera to capture all the action with your iPhone or iPad

The Camera app on your iPhone makes it easy to take photos. But what if things are moving? Jumping, blinking, dancing, fidgeting, flipping? Not only do you have to worry about avoiding motion blur, you want to make sure you capture the action at just the right moment — the high point of the slam dunk, the fullness of the splash, the cross-of the finish line, the impact of the moment. With the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad Air 2, there's burst mode for that!
