One thing I would like now more than ever and I've always wanted this....is a passcode/Touch ID security on the native Photos App which you can enable or disable. I know a lot of people don't want anything like this, but I do and there are others who would benefit from it and want it as well. Now the main reason I want this is because when I let folks look at my iPhone they ALWAYS go to the pictures without fail. Right now I'm looking kinda vain with over 230 Selfies in a folder that I didn't create. Plus I have other pics on there of friends and family that everyone does not need to scroll through. SO I usually monitor folks when they are checking out my iPhone.
@Sharunda, while it's not a perfect solution to the scenario you mentioned, it could be a viable stopgap offering some protection from would-be snoopers. Check out tip #40 form the link in the OP.

You're right. It seems to be one huge self-contained page, doesn't it?
Even though the list was obnoxiously put together, it was the most comprehensive I've come across so far. Good find!
I created a less-obnoxiously-put-together version of the same list that some of you might like better and/or find easier to use. I put all the tips on a single page on my Tumblr and you can easily scroll up and down the list. No more paging left or right to go through the tips.

Here's the link:

Sharing a single tip with someone
You can also right click on any photo in my Tumblr page containing the specific tip you want to share with someone, then select Copy Link or Open Link in New Window, and finally share the resulting URL with a friend. For example:

Tip # 7: Get Public directions in Maps

http://40.media.tumblr.com/fea71cc507b25026ebcd66723632411e/tumblr_nuvtwbpjNh1qf34koo7_1280.png

Once again, I would like to thank @Hondamaker for finding the list for us.

This is a very minor tip. I discovered it by accident.

Go to Settings > General > About. Scroll down to "Carrier". Tap it. You'll see your IMS status.

I've since learned that that "feature" has been there since iOS 8.2. I didn't find a whole lot of sources out there explaining it. This one was one of the few.
