Moving Google contacts, email, calendar, and notes Even though the iPhone runs iOS, which is a totally different operating system, it gets along with Google accounts pretty well. In fact, you just need to sign in with your existing Google credentials in order to continue using some of its essential services. To do that, go to the iPhone's Settings menu and open "Mail, Contacts, Calendars". Then choose "Add Account" and log in using your Google email and password. You will be asked to select the services that you want to synchronize with your iPhone – the options include Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Notes (which is different from Keep). Just pick the ones you'd like to use and you should be all set. Keep in mind that if both your iCloud (assuming you made one) and Google accounts are set to display and sync contacts, newly added contacts will be saved only to the account that is set as default. You may change the default account from the said "Mail, … [Read more...] about Switching from Android to iPhone: tips and tricks you should know

With iOS 8, Apple made it possible to hide pictures on iOS devices by putting them in a designated folder. This is done by opening a photo, holding down a finger on the image, and tapping "Hide" in the pop-up menu bubble that appears. People who have actually used the feature, however, know that it doesn't really do anything to keep the supposedly hidden photos private. In a nutshell, images are removed from the user's Collections and Camera Roll, but they're still available in an album conspicuously named "Hidden". And no, there's no password required to access the content.Needless to say, Apple's approach to hiding pictures doesn't work for anyone who keeps sensitive content, such as spicy photos of themselves or significant others, on their iOS device. (Yes, we're looking at you.) That's why we thought we'd suggest an alternative solution.
