News: Magic Leap Founder Launches the Company He 'Really' Wanted to Start, a Film & Music Studio with Virtual Artists
The company augmented reality that Rony Abovitz was trying to build at Magic Leap apparently wasn't working out the way he hoped it would. That company, built on dreams, music, and future-looking entertainment, rather than truly new technology, came with a $2,300 price tag for a device using dynamics most mainstream consumers have never even tried.
Most of the images in your iPhone's Photos app contain exchangeable image file format data known as Exif or EXIF data, which has several helpful uses. You can use countless apps capable of reading Exif data, many of which are paid or limited.

News: Apple Releases iOS 14.4 for iPhone, Featuring New Apple Watch Face & Updates to Camera, Bluetooth & Privacy
Buckle up, iPhone users, because it's update time! Apple just released its latest iPhone OS to the public, iOS 14.4.

Even with the convenience of online storage like iCloud and Google Drive, data management can be a constant struggle on your iPhone. If you continuously find yourself having to delete messages, photos, videos, and other files to make room for other things, know that there's an easy way to free up space without erasing anything important or having to dig through documents and data yourself.
Since iOS 11, your iPhone has been capable of offloading hardly used apps to free up storage space for more useful data. But offloading only gets rid of the app's binary, meaning its documents and data are stored on your device in case you reinstall the app. That can take up a lot of space itself, so it's good to periodically review files for offloaded apps and purge the content you no longer need.

The benefit of going all-in on the Apple ecosystem is that your stuff is connected across all of your Apple products.

Whether you work in sales or want to become more persuasive and better at selling yourself, the art of selling can be transferred to nearly any career path or walk of life. Whether the gains are monetary or interpersonal, being a great salesperson is one of the most invaluable skills you can ever learn.
Do Not Disturb is the best way to block out all interruptions on your iPhone without having to power down. All notifications and alerts are silenced, but the same can't be said for phone calls. By default, repeat calls will bypass Do Not Disturb, which can be quite frustrating when you're in a movie, classroom, or board meeting. It's good for emergencies, but not for people who can't take the hint.
Your sensitive personal data should be strongly protected, and it's never more vulnerable than when you are online. The internet connection is a prime avenue of exposure, and email is one of the least secure forms of communication. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to both of those problems.

If you'd rather be gently relaxed out of bed instead of stressed out at loud alarm sounds, there are a few things you can do on your iPhone.

They act similar to folders but show apps in a list and let you add the same app to multiple app pickers.
Google Maps tracks everywhere you go with your smartphone, even when you're not using the app. Even if it's as mundane as your weekly grocery trip, Google Maps has it saved for you to see in its Android and iOS apps.
