If you’ve got young kids or teenagers using iOS devices, you might be curious as to what they’re doing on the internet. You might be concerned about cyber bullying or about their social life.

Now that you’ve got the iPhone X, you’ll want to look into getting the most out of the device.

Get a case, a screen protector, an external battery pack, better cables, wireless audio and you’re good to go.

But you don’t want the overhead of going to a marketplace, exchanging money for Bitcoin and then figuring out where to save it.
The iPhone X is all about gestures. There’s no Home button, no Touch ID. Everything from unlocking the phone to switching between apps and even reachability now happens using gestures. These new gestures are breaking 10 years of muscle memory so it will take some time to get used to them. We’re here to help you out with some tips and tricks to speed up that process.
