Apple CEO Tim Cook said he doesn't think we will hear the U.S. National Security Agency asking for a back door into our iPhones, at least not any more. In an interview on NPR's All Things Considered on Thursday, Mr. Cook implied that even the FBI is coming around on the need for end-user encryption.
One of the new features of the iPhone 6s/6s Plus is the so-called Live Photos functionality; this'll take your still images and turn them into little video-like snapshots of the moments in your life. However, there's a big caveat: When you share a pic with someone through Messages, those Live Photos are sent as, well, Live Photos, which may be a problem if you just forgot the feature was turned on! We'll go over what to do in this Quick Tip.
iOS 9 introduces a new feature to the iPhone called "Low Power Mode." Like Apollo 13 on the way to the Moon, it shuts down non-essential services in an effort to maintain an emergency lifeline. That is, enough juice to make and hold an emergency phone call, be located, or utilize Wi-Fi. Here's how to activate it.
Apple has released iOS 9.0.2 with some minor bug fixes and an important security fix related to Siri. According to the notes, "A person with physical access to an iOS device may be able to access photos and contacts from the lock screen."

Kelly shows the easiest way to share out that amazing Live Photo for all the world to see, regardless of device.

Google Maps joined the Apple Watch bandwagon Tuesday. An update to the Google Maps client for iOS slipped in an Apple Watch app along with new comparison feature for different travel modes.
Dr. Mac got an iPhone 6s last Friday; his initial impressions are in Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves Episode 143, a delightful little ditty he likes to call, "Dr. Mac's First Look at the iPhone 6s." It wasn't all wine and roses (Spoiler alert: He thinks the Rose Gold looks too pink). But after a rocky start, the Doc is pretty happy with his newest gadget.
Today's Quick Tip is all about some nifty ways you can Peek and Pop your way to screen-pressing happiness with the fancy new iPhones. Yes, we know that sentence makes us sound crazy (at best). We blame Apple for giving their features such…interesting monikers.
