If you kept your older iPhone or iPad, think about using it to free-up storage on your current device.
Add your recipes and keep the device charged in your kitchen;
Keep your favourite photos on it to show friends. Safer than handing over your phone!
Keep your music collection on it.

With iOS 13 and iPadOS you can take a screenshot and immediately begin marking it up with Apple Pencil by swiping up from the bottom-left corner of the screen.
If you don’t have an Apple Pencil, to mark up a screenshot right after you take it, tap the thumbnail that appears in the bottom-left corner of the screen.
When using Markup swipe down near the top of the toolbar to minimise it as shown in these images. To show the full toolbar again, tap the minimized version.
