How is the iPhone 13 Pro Max camera specifically the front camera

Currently I have the 12 pro max and I wanted to upgrade to the 13 pro max but I had heard people saying that the front camera on the iPhone 13 make you look worst then when you were viewing it in the camera app. It this true, is this a problem that only occur on the iPhone 13 models or does it this problem also happen on the 14 and 15 models as well.

Is there any way to undo edits to photos done in the files app?

I accidentally added stickers to this photo I took. I had it saved in the files app. It won’t let me remove them and now it’s ruined the photo. I don’t have it upload to iCloud or have any other version of the photo. Is there anyway to fix this?

New iPhone financed/purchased from Apple store - How to use/activate without going through Tmo?

I've read various things about this - I understand all iPhones purchased at the Apple store are unlocked, but the store agent said that it's configured for me to sign in/up with tmobile when I start it.

I haven't powered it up yet.

What's the best method to circumvent Tmobile and use my own eSim?

Is it ok to power up and then put it in recovery mode and do a wipe/restore? Or is there another method?

*Just for clarity - I selected the Tmobile version so I can get the financing/cashback through Apple card.

Thanks!

you must have a sim associated with an apple device for to be used for imessage and facetime

It seems that my phone can't detect a sim card. my phone has always worked perfectly fine and yesterday randomly my imessage & facetime stopped working. It says “an error occurred during activation” every time i try to toggle imessage or facetime on. i don’t think there’s anything wrong with my sim as it works when i tried to put it in a different phone. I tried multiple solutions online such as restarting my phone, taking the Sim out and putting it back in,resetting network settings,even talked to Apple on the phone for two hours and still can’t figure it out. I would really appreciate if someone would help me figure out how I can solve this issue.

New iPhone 15 ProMax

Traded in the 13 in-store (Apple Store), got home to set up, and now I need an eSim. I don't have my old phone anymore, and the only way AT&T can verify my identity is vis an SMS text message, which my new phone is not yet equipped to receive. I'm in no-man's land. Help? EDIT: I do have the SIM from the old phone, if that would help?

Prioritizing app notifications

Is there a way to prioritize notifications for specific apps? There’s an app used by my company and it takes me awhile to respond to messages within the app because the notifications get buried “down below.”

I like how Carrot’s notifications (the weather app) always appear right on top, this would be perfect!

Anyone else?

Woke up this morning and my phone (15 pro) was plugged in with the power on but it wasn't charging. My dad must have helped me to turn on the charger so it should have been at at least 80. Rebooted and charged again so now it's fine. Has anyone else experienced faulty charging like this? There wasn't anything wrong with the wire, adapter nor my phone

iPhone question

So l've been doing some research about IPhone hacking after an incident. I'm wondering if it's possible to remotely hack an IPhone and remotely view the screen without any malicious apps for files showing up in the phone. I'm not talking about an abusive relationship or a situation where there was physical access to the device, but a bad actor that targets a device and is then able to remotely view and/or control the phone's screen. Is this possible beyond those super expensive zero click/zero day exploits? During my research, l've seen a bunch of articles talking about how this seems like a real threat for everyday people, claiming that it's surprisingly easy to hack an iPhone, but when I look at forums, there are people that avidly claim that it's impossible. So, my question for anyone that wants to help me out is: which is it? Is it easy to hack an iPhone and do the things I mentioned, or is it impossible?

Weird hack of my GF's phone

MY GF was out with some friends and she said some guy approached her in a friendly manner, kind of like he was drunk, and asked for a high-five. He then tried to come in close for a hug, but my GF shut him down.

Then about 45 minutes later, her phone began showing a message saying that the phone was stolen and her FaceID wasn't working. Luckily, the Apple Store was a few minutes away and they confirmed there was a hack, which basically screwed up the phone. They were able to do a reset and she got a notice from her bank that there was Zelle transaction for $1100. She got in touch with them to file a dispute and her phone is back up and running, but wondered if anyone heard about a similar kind of hack.

Is the halide camera app worth it?

I use an iPhone 13 mini. Thinking of getting the halide camera app subscription. Is it worth it? At the moment I use the Lightroom app’s camera feature to shoot raw photos when I need.

Would appreciate some feedback from who’ve use it.

Screen Mirror like android?

I’ve had android for eons, Samsung specifically, and I could just make my phone screen appear on the tv, nothing special, no WiFi. Does apple not do that? I live rurally and cannot get internet access at all, so no WiFi. Cellphone reception is the only thing I have. Period. I’ve been trying to find a clear answer and I’m still not understanding. I never would have switch if this had come up. Can someone explain it to me like I’m a little kid. Thanks.

Crackling Speaker sound while on calls (iphone 15 plus)

Hello. My new iphone 15 plus makes crackling sound while making calls. It happens both on earphone and loud speaker mode.

The issue occurs only during the calls. Playing anything else, like music videos and YT videos doesn’t cause this.

Anyone else experiencing this? Fixes?

Safari Security

Hi, I accidentally searched something in my iPhone’s Safari to see what Google says it is, and it mistakenly took me to a shady website that advertised making money quickly.

I immediately closed the page, and went into settings and deleted the history via “Clear History and Website Data”, and then turned off my iPhone and then on. Also, I didn’t see anything downloaded in Safari.

Should I do anything else to prevent from malware/spyware hacking my iPhone?

My iphone is iPhone 15 that has up-to-date iOS and is not jailbroken.

Face id not working on 11 pro max?

I’m trying to sell my 11 pro max 64gb but the face id isn’t working. Except for that, it’s in perfect physical condition, and the battery health is at 77… I was just wondering if anyone has any idea how much it could go for? I can’t find anything online for a phone with no working face id.
