    Beyond the obvious of calling and texting, in what ways do you use your iPhone in your life? How and in what ways is it integrated into your life?

    Calling and texting.

    Some light email and web browsing when I am away from a computer. Apple Pay once in a while, bank apps to check a balance.

    Pretty much it for me.

    I have computers that do everything else and at least three of them are laptops.

    Refresh instagram 1000 times a day, refresh twitter 1000 times a day, check my e-mail, listen to music at the gym, watch youtube before bed.

    Pretty much that is how my phone is used. It's more to fill in the gaps of when I don't have anything to do.

    1. As the mother ship that services my Apple Watch
    2. Listening to Audible books in bed to fall asleep
    3. As my main alarm clock
    4. Taking photos.
    5. Notifications for my courses (Canvas LMS)
    6. Watching videos or baseball. Especially sitting on the front porch. There are times I just prefer the small screen.

    It's my alarm clock every morning. Beyond that, I use it for just about everything else that I used to use a laptop for. I really only use my laptop for editing photos these days.

    I’m big on using calendar, I add almost everything in to my calendar; except for pooping, eating, etc. Calendar keeps my life organized, I don’t have to remember anything for most part and there are no overlapping in my schedule.
    I can access my calendar from any pc that has internet connection.

    4 email accounts, one of them I use on daily basis.
    Two of them belong to my mother, even though she passed away 6 month ago, I clear spam out of her email accounts twice a week.... I’m having hard time letting go..:(

    I’m a performance driving enthusiast and iPhone replaces a very expensive and very complicated to setup telemetry system that captures my track and autocross adventures.

    Before iPhone and the app Harry’s Lap Timer, enthusiasts had to spend big big $$$ on dedicated telemetry devices And special in car mounted cameras in order to capture their driving and racing line for review later. This is valuable for professional racing and it is what drives current F1/IMSA/etc professional racing. Thanks to iPhone and the app + accessory market it created, I have a full GPS enabled, OBDII reading for throttle/braking, go pro and built in 4K video capturing intelligent telemetry tool in my pocket. And it brings all that data together intelligently to allow me to produce videos that I can review later to help improve my driving for the next session. Its of course, magical.


    These were all videos created on iPhone, no computer or fancy extra software required.

    My phone is definitely integrated into my life. It helps me to connect via work and my personal life. It's the one technology device I can say I actually need on a daily basis.
