    How do you use your iPhone?
    And I don't mean just social media use. I've had an iPhone since the 4s but lately I've notice that I don't use it as often as I use to. I put it down and sometimes forget to pick it up when I leave the room.

    So I ask, how do you use your iPhones? What scenarios do you find it exceptionally useful? What are some nifty tricks/apps that you use, that make your day significantly better and easier?

    I feel like I'm missing out on big use cases for the phone lately :(

    I am jealous as my phone does not stop ringing. Probably about 40 emails to answer and as many texts. There are day I wish I could get up and walk away but it is how I run my business.

    Use it as it fits your life. If you find you don't need it as much that just means it fits less into your lifestyle than it does for someone else--it doesn't make it better or worse, or that someone is missing out on something, it's simply different for everyone and that's it.

    I don't use my iPhone as much as I did in the past. Actually, I use my iPads more.

    Retired, but... (Had the 5s and now 6s+)

    2. Map once or twice per month
    3. Music twice last month. Have a nice system at home for that
    4. Photos 12 times per month
    5. Texting. Once thus far. Friends nearby and we like to have face to face conversations
    6. SIRI 20 times per month
    7. YouTube on iPhone. Never
    8. Google search. Couple times per month. Computer at home more often
    9. Games. Never
    10 Weather. Few times per months
    11.Mail. Few times per month. Not often
    12 Apps. None needed or used except what is provided

    Don't use it much, but handy if I ever need to use it more. ;)

    Crikey, you only need an old Nokia and you could store it in the car's glovebox for emergencies.:D

    Wow, person complaining they are actually using their phone reasonably. Can walk away from it and live their life. Not tied to the hip. You should feel good about this.

    Some people can't go to bathroom without their phone....grins......course need some sort of reading material.....on second thought forget this last paragraph.;)
