There are now hundreds of thousands of apps available for your iPhone 7 or iPhone 6S and, surprisingly, many of the best are free.

The following list showcases our pick of the best free iPhone apps, and includes iPhone applications for social networking, travel, news, photography, productivity and more. Most of these apps are also compatible with the iPod touch.

Although creative giant Adobe doesn’t seem keen on bringing its desktop software to iPhone in one piece, we’re nonetheless getting chunks of its power reimagined as smaller, more focused apps. The idea behind Adobe Photoshop Fix is to enable you to rapidly retouch and restore photos on your iPhone – using the power of Photoshop.

It's no secret that the iPhone is recording your movement . Even if Steve Jobs claims this information isn't being used to track anyone , the fact is, it's still being collected. This feature dates back to the release of iOS 4, and can supposedly be stopped by disabling Location Services in the Settings for your device. For all the privacy fanatics out there, we decided to put this to the test.

I figured a good 45 minutes would be large-enough window of time for my location data to be collected if it was going to happen.

So I walked from the PCMag Labs, down to Union Square, stopping every few minutes to check e-mail or pull up a Web site on the phone; just to make sure that I was actively engaging Verizon's cell towers. Then I walked towards the East River while making my way back uptown, trying to cover as large a radius as possible.

You can register up to 100 devices with the same Apple ID. If you try to add more than 100 devices to Find My iPhone with your iCloud, the device won't appear in your All Devices list. If you need to add a new device when you already have 100 registered, remove one of the existing devices to make room.

If you see "Offline," "No location available," or "Location Services Off," your device might be offline for one of these reasons:
