If you've been wondering, "how do I scan a QR code on my iPhone?", you're in luck. Before iOS 11, you needed a third-party app to be able to scan QR codes on an iPhone or iPad. No longer! You can finally use the stock Camera app on your phone or tablet to scan QR codes, and it’s pretty easy to do so. QR codes usually appear as encoded black and white squares that, when scanned, present more information on a topic in the form on a web-page, contact information, video, or just about anything. Once you've learned how to scan a QR code with your Camera app on an iPhone or iPad, you might like to find out how to add a QR scanner to your iPhone's Control Center.

With Apple's Live Photos, you’re not always exactly aware of what’s being filmed.

Sometimes the right side is the left side—you've taken a picture that needs to be flipped, or mirrored, in order to get the best effect.

The iPhone's camera is such a handy and versitile tool that I find myself favoring it even when I've got expensive photography equipment gathering dust in my office. Setting the exposure is as easy as tapping on the point in the image you want to meter, tapping the sun icon that appears next to that point to reveal the brightness slider, and then dragging the brightness slider up or down. That way you can make the darks a little darker or the lights a little lighter, and create the image you want every time. The Camera app doesn't give you exposure settings in f-stops, or let you adjust aperature or shutter speed directly. For that you'll need a third party app. However, it does let you adjust which part of the frame the auto-exposure meters quickly and easily. Here's how to do it.
