We've already gone over how to take and share a screenshot on an iPhone. With iOS 12 or later, the screenshot appears in the lower-left corner of the screen for a few seconds.

If you accidentally took the screenshot, you can also immediately delete the image by tapping on it. We'll cover how to mark up screenshots with iOS 13 on your iPhone below.

With Apple's Live Photos, you’re not always exactly aware of what’s being filmed. Since an iPhone Live Photo captures 1.5 seconds before and after a shot is taken, it’s easy to accidentally catch the blur from lowering your phone, or worse, something you don’t want anyone to see. Before iOS 11, you could edit a Live Photo by turning it into a still, or simply delete it. But starting with iOS 11 and continuing with iOS 13, you can trim live pictures just like you would a video. Here’s how to make edits to a Live Photo on your iPhone.

I've been really enjoying the iOS Photos app lately, particularly the People Album. It's pretty amazing, and convenient, that the iOS Photos app can scan every face in every image, then identify people and sort the pictures into their own respective People albums. Sometimes though, the Photos app gets the identification wrong and puts a friend or family member's picture in the wrong People album. So what do you do when one of your photos has been misidentified and put in the wrong spot like this? Let's learn how to remove photos that have been put into the wrong People album.

Here's how to use the Continuity Camera feature on the Mac, which enables you to scan documents or take photos on your iPhone and instantly have them uploaded on your Mac.
