We review the basic phenomena in QCD subject to strong magnetic fields which are accessible in experiment and can be also studied in lattice QCD simulations: enhanced fluctuations of electric current and electric dipole moment, the negative magnetoresistivity and the inverse magnetic catalysis. We comment on the possibility of experimental detection of negative magnetoresistivity by analysing the angular distributions of dilepton pairs in off-central heavy-ion collisions.
