The use of modern technology is the most popular way we communicate with each other on a daily basis. The most common being the modern-day smartphone. The smartphone is a very useful tool for everyday life and is almost a necessity in our modern world. These pieces of technology have many benefits and make our lives easier. I have had an iPhone for three years and I absolutely love it. There is so much I can do with this device that my old phone couldn’t do.
In the past, if I needed information on a topic for school I would have to go to the library or wait until I got home to use my computer. This was very frustrating because it was often difficult to find reliable information in a timely manner. However, with my iPhone I can quickly look up anything with a few taps of the screen. Having a smartphone is like carrying around an encyclopedia that fits in your back pocket.
My smartphone makes it a lot easier to be connected with my friends. In the past the only way I could talk to someone was to call them and most of the time, people were too busy to answer. Now I am able to contact them using social media on my iPhone such as Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. On top of being closer to my friends, these apps help to inform me of events going on within my school, something my old phone could never do.
One of the most useful features of my phone is the GPS system. I am able to go anywhere I want without the fear of getting lost. In the past I was scared to leave my neighborhood because I felt I would never make it home. In fact, when I was younger I used to get lost when I rode my bike. Now I can go where ever I want and always know my exact location. While my old phone did have a GPS, it was very crude and unreliable.
There are several other things that smartphones can do, but these are my personal favorites. I know most of the people reading this own a smartphone. However, if you’re one of the few who don’t, I would highly recommend investing in one. You’ll wonder how you lived without one.
