How to use live camera filters on your iPhone

Apple has added basic color and effect filters to both the Camera and Photos app on the iPhone. The new filters apply to the still and square cameras. They don't apply to the video or panorama cameras. If you apply one, they're live and you'll see them in the preview the way they'll look when the photo is taken. They're subtle, as filters go. Mono, Tonal, Noir, Fade, Chrome, Process, Transfer, and Instant. There are three types of black and white, one desaturated, one over saturated, and and one each that tint towards blue, red, and green. Nothing blown out, nothing vignetted, and nothing overly dramatic. Best of all, they're easy to use!

How to make a FaceTime call from your iPhone

The iPhone was the first Apple device to gain access to their free video calling service, FaceTime. Since 2010 and the iPhone 4, FaceTime has been integrated right into the built-in iOS Phone app. That means you can make, or switch to, a FaceTime call as easily as a regular call. What's more, because your iPhone is with you all the time, and because FaceTime now also works over cellular data as well as Wi-Fi, you can make a FaceTime call at any time, from anywhere. That makes it perfect for everything from keeping in touch with family while you're on the road, to getting a second opinion on that jacket while you're out shopping! (Just keep an eye on your data cap!)
