We live in the age of iPhones. Apple has sold over a billion of them now, and they're used every day by our families, our friends, our colleagues, our classmates. Not too long ago, the idea of so many of us having incredibly accessible, always connected, supercomputers in our pockets would be the stuff of science fiction. Now, it's so commonplace we take it for granted.

Blame it on the steady pace of iteration. The technology is so mature now that sometimes we don't even notice the year-over-year improvements. It's only when we look back over a few years that we realize how much has really changed. Typically for the better, but not always.

Photos app for OS X and iCloud Photo Library are great options for those who want to rely on Apple to store their images. But you're not limited to iCloud: You can instead use iTunes or another third-party cloud service to sync images between your computer and your iPhone or iPad.

So if you want to showcase your computer's images on your iOS devices, never fear: iMore has you covered. Here's a quick tutorial on all the ways you can currently sync your Mac or Windows PC images to your iPhone or iPad.

While I still have some issues with Apple's iCloud Photo Library , it remains one of the best ways to keep your photos in sync between your Mac, PC, and any other iOS devices you may own. There are a few different ways to transfer photos from your Mac, which I'll outline below.

Apple’s App Store boasts one of the most extensive collections of apps this side of the sun. Inside you can pretty much find anything – and we mean anything.

Also: if you're interested in becoming an iPhone developer, UDEMY is running an amazing offer right now which, for just £15, will get you access to one of the best iPhone Developer Courses on the planet right now –  The Complete iOS 10 Developer Course . Maybe it's time you started making your own apps? 

You'll have some competition. But becoming a developer is a VERY bankable skill. You will be in demand – so it's certainly worth a look if you've ever considered building your own apps or learning more about coding. 

The app market is changing and shifting constantly, and the success stories are big enough to catch anyone's eye. Do you think you have the Next Big Idea for an iPhone app? It may be easier to make than you think. Although you'll need to learn some coding, much of the interface work can be done graphically. Creating an app will take time, learning, and patience but maybe you can make the next Flappy Bird! See Step 1 below to get started.

There's no single Android "look." Sure, we've got Material Design, and it's great. But Android can and often does look like anything under the sun: pretty, ugly, clean, busy, Material, Holo, retro, futuristic, and at times, even Apple-y. If you can make your phone look like anything, it makes sense that some might want their phone to look like one of Cupertino's devices.

Now making your phone look and behave exactly like an iPhone is impossible without a specialized ROM, or a phone that was designed to look and feel like an iPhone — think Xiaomi, Huawei, or a few other Chinese manufacturers. But between these apps and a little patience, we can make your new phone behave and feel a lot more like your old one … in a good way.

This is an area that throws a lot of former iPhone users for a loop, since the home screen experience can be quite different from Apple's simple app and folder grid. While Apple users tend to live in what we call the app drawer, Android users have home screens on top of the app drawer so that most apps are out of the way and only what you want to see is on the home screen.
