The modern phone is more than just a phone, lets face it - its probably the least used app on the iPhone except 'Stocks'. The things we can do with this little block of silicone, aluminium and glass sitting on our desks and in our pockets and bags is really incredible when you think of it, had you shown me an iPhone when I was 8, I probably wouldn't believe it was real. I mean, think about all the things any smartphone can do today and all the technology that it has made largely redundant. We all carry around the entirety of human knowledge in our pockets. If a disaster occurs on the other side of the world we know about it within literally seconds. It's our connection to the outside world and most of the people we know, its our bus timetable, our GPS, our ride home, the next dinner out, and the list goes on and on. But with all this knowledge and information in our hands, is your phone making you dumber? Having this permanent connection to all this information surely means that we're thinking less. Directions to the store? Theres an app for that. Calculating 20% tip, splitting your bill? Theres an app for that. These are not really complicated or taxing things to do, but now we don't have to even think about it. The phone comes out, seconds later, we have the answer. Perhaps not you, perhaps the generation growing up today, born into this connected world, are they going to be smarter than us? Or will they be even more reliant on iPhone 11 than we are on current generation iPhones. Don't get me wrong, I love my iPhone, its marvellous and I am truly grateful that I can appreciate it for the technological marvel that it is, but i wonder if my reliance on it has made me just slightly more stupid than when I had a Nokia 32-brick.
