iOS: If you’re the kind of person who uses a little creativity when organising the apps on your iPhone or iPad — by icon colour, for example — it might be time to take your device’s look to the next level. Sure, you can name your folders something descriptive and/or witty, like “yellow” instead of the category of the apps found within it, but here’s a trick you can use to ditch folder names entirely.

For whatever reason, Apple launched iOS 12's Shortcuts app without offering users any kind of centralised hub for storing and sharing the useful shortcuts they create. So, this happens: You find a neat shortcut online, you pull up Safari on your iOS device and install it via some shared iCloud link, and it sits on your device forever.
Trying to find the perfect iOS apps can be tough, and we’re willing to bet that your iPhone or iPad is full of pages and pages of apps. There’s just so much out there, it’s hard to come up with a short list of favourites. We understand. Allow us to help you with our freshly updated Lifehacker Pack for iOS.
Apple has taken the iPhone X design that introduced in 2017 and made it the template for all of their new iPhone models. With three new iPhone models this year, the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple has made the near-bezel-less design their standard. The two premium models, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have identical specifications other than display size. That means everything I cover in this review should apply to both flagship models. After a couple of weeks using the iPhone XS, here's what I've learned.
Fresh off the official launch of iOS 12 and the grand renaming debut of Apple's Shortcuts app — I asked people for their favourite Shortcuts. In no particular order, here are the best I've seen.
iOS: While most Apple fans who love podcasts have probably switched to an app like Overcast or Castro, you might want to go back and spend a few minutes with Apple’s updated Podcasts app in iOS 12. There are a few new features that have finally made this app a viable alternative to the, er, alternatives. Here’s what’s new.
It sucks, but we're all going to have to get used to it: the 3.5mm headphone jack is slowly disappearing from modern smartphones. No longer just a 'feature' of iPhones, the lack of headphone jack has also spread to phones by Huawei, Google, HTC and a number of other manufacturers. If you want to keep using your old headphones with these phones, here are the adaptors you need.
The iPhone XS and XS Max woes continue: In addition to cellular and wifi connectivity issues, some users are reporting charging problems with their devices — mainly when their iPhones’ screens are turned off. Here's what you can do about it.
iOS 12 is out, and a lot of people are suddenly realising that they spend way too much time on their smartphones. Way. Too. Much. Time.
That’s all thanks to the Screen Time feature you’ll find within your device’s Settings menu — right under “Do Not Disturb”. Tap it, and your iPhone or iPad will give you all sorts of scary information: How many hours you’ve spent glued to it, what you did, and even how much you picked it up (to the hour, even).
If you're shopping around for a new telco provider and a new iPhone, JB Hi-Fi has a deal that's pretty hard to ignore. For a limited time, you can get a whopping $740 off the 64GB iPhone X when you bundle it with a $65 phone plan - that's approximately 50% off the current sticker price! Here are the details.
iOS: For most iPhone users, updating to iOS 12 should be smooth sailing: Faster speeds and fun new features for all. But while we have yet to experience any issues with iOS 12 on our devices here at Lifehacker, we have seen a number of reports from others — especially those with older devices — who feel as though they’re having battery issues after updating to Apple’s latest version of iOS.
Like all previous iPhones, the iPhone XS comes with a non-removable battery. This hasn't stopped curious tech-heads from tearing the device apart to have a look though. What they've found is a bizarre single-cell power pack that 'wraps' around other components - and that could spell trouble for lastability.
