Has your iPhone 5 battery been suffering? Have you been charging your iPhone more frequently? Perhaps your device is among those that Apple will replace the battery, at no cost to you!

So you took some good photos of that trip to Niagara Falls. Now what? How about stitching some of them together to make a nice presentable masterpiece of the highlights? There are a few apps that can do this but the most popular is Pic Stitch.
