Various battery sizes mean different form factors, which can bring you joy or frustration should you have a pack that can’t keep up with your needs.

Instagram’s new Layout app arrives for your collages

Instagram is great for scrolling through a seemingly endless array of pics from folks all over the globe, but single snaps sometimes fail to tell the entire narrative. Collages can do a much better job of that, which is probably why Instagram is introducing Layout. The new app lets you cobble together multiple shots into one image, taken from your camera roll. Instagram has some custom layouts ready for you, and a facial detection algorithm that will make piecing pics of friends together much easier.
