What is Apple Lockdown Mode on iPhone and Who Should Activate It?

Apple began rolling out the latest iOS 16 software update to millions of iPhones last week in conjunction with the global availability of the iPhone 14 series. iOS 16 brings with it a number of new features such as an interactive lock screen and the ability to edit and unsend recently sent iMessages.

How to Listen to FM Stations on Your iPhone “Radio Silent”

While going to Kozhikode on Rajdhani Express last week, I realized that my iPhone does not have a built-in FM radio.

I had no clue about the radio apps and didn’t know what they did or if they supported local radio stations or not. I downloaded some radio…

The iPhone 13 Pro Max was probably the best smartphone of 2021, and no one is denying it. But, let’s be honest, the iPhone 13 series has had its moment and it’s time to let it go.
