Many iPhone users have wrestled with storage limits, especially when it comes to managing the device’s camera roll. Apart from deleting old pics and purchasing a paid iCloud subscription, there’s another option for alleviating storage woes: using Google Photos for iOS.
Imagine if you could walk into your living room and all your electronics started charging, without a single wire or plug needed.
According to a team of engineers at Duke University and the University of Washington, this idea isn’t too far from reality, and the technology already exists to build it.
They say a single charger mounted high on a wall could ‘beam’ power to several devices at once – from cellphones to smartwatches.
Christmas is a time to remember – the family are together, the festivity is high, and having an embarrassing image of your sibling asleep in a party hat is always going to come in handy.
With smartphones having replaced traditional cameras though, we’re all becoming a bunch of lazy photographers.

3. Download photography apps to enhance your camera’s core features.
4. Think outside the box and use feature in ways they weren’t designed for.
