Take my iPhone 7. It’s a cold piece of metal and plastic, but inside are apps I, unfortunately, can’t do without. Slack and email are important for keeping in touch with my coworkers, especially in an era when more and more people work remotely for some part of the week. The actual telephone feature is indispensable: I use it to talk with sources for a story, call my mom, and feel a little bit safer when I’m walking home at night. The search browser, camera, and the Pocket app, which stores articles I want to read later, are all daily uses.
