If you have a medical issue such as a seizure disorder, cardiac condition, or similar problem that may leave you unable to communicate with medics and other first responders, it's important to have a simple method they can use to understand your situation so they can best help you. While a medical alert bracelet, id bracelet, or even a medical id card in your wallet may help in an emergency, there's one more tool you can use to ensure you receive the prompt care you need—your iPhone! Even if you keep your iPhone locked with a passcode or Touch or Face ID, it's still possible to have your Medical ID visible on your smartphone so that bystanders and emergency personnel can assist you in a medical emergency.

If you travel or do business internationally, you know how costly roaming charges are. Unless your mobile carrier is T-mobile (limited to 2G data speed), you need an additional service plan for international texting. AT&T international texting costs $10 a month, as does Sprint, but don't worry; you can text free in Italy, Germany, the Philipines, or almost any other country you can think of with iMessages. With iMessage, you can text from anywhere for free, as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection and the person you're messaging also has an iPhone or Mac. If you want to be able to internationally text friends without iPhones for free, you'll need a free texting app. Let's get started learning how to avoid monstrous phone bills by sending free iMessages, or using a free text app!

What does HDR mean and why would I want to use HDR photography on my iPhone? HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and an HDR photo is created by balancing the shadows and highlights of an image so that neither is being favored or ignored. Basically, HDR on the iPhone is done by combining three different exposures into a single shot. HDR has been around for a long time on the iPhone, so you won't need an HDR camera or a special app if you have an older iPhone 4, iPhone 5, the iPhone 6, the latest iPhone 8, an iPhone X, or any of the models in between. We’ll go over what HDR means, why and when to use HDR photography, as well as how to use HDR on your iPhone. HDR mode on your iPhone camera makes a big difference in the right situations, such as when taking a photo of land and sky. So let’s get to it; here’s everything you need to know about what HDR is and how to use it on your iPhone to take awesome pictures.

Apple's Health app helps iPhone users keep track of a variety of data concerning their health all in one place. The iPhone Health app for iPhone versions 5s and later keeps track of how many steps you take in a day, including running and walking distances. Health app users can track their bedtime and how much sleep they've had each night, they can import health data from Bluetooth devices, third-party apps, and doctor's records, and they can even back up all this information on iCloud or their computer and in turn share that information with other apps and devices as users permit. In addition to information collected by the iPhone, or imported from a health care provider, your Health app can also accept data that you enter manually. You may want to do this if, for example, you have a fever and want to track if your temperature is spiking at a certain time of day. Let's get started learning how to manually enter data into the Health app on your iPhone, so you can have all the data you need in one place.
