I have had my iPhone 6 for a couple months now and have really loved it. I had upgraded from an iPhone 4S, so that is a huge upgrade not only in screen size, but processor and memory wise as well. But how has this changed my workflow and how I write almost everyday? Also, how has it changed my life? Let’s find out shall we!
My iPhone 6 has a memory capacity of 64GB of storage, therefore I don't have to worry much about not having enough storage for pictures and apps. To put it simply, this smartphone has allowed me to do some much more with my writing content, which just in the couple months that I have had this iPhone, I have been able to publish content on my personal blog directly from the iPhone 6, along with checking my stats everyday.
An example of the actual writing is having the Day One Journal app on it. I use this to put my writing ideas in my phone so that not only do I have access to them on my iPhone, but it also available to me on my MacBook Pro. Like I said earlier, having 64GB of storage on your phone will change your life. One would say that I could just use the Notes app, but I’m not like that. I do have a Day One journal for my personal everyday writing, but since Day One allows users to now have multiple journals, it makes my life a lot easier. It also allows the journals to be color coded, which makes it even more organized.
Another way how the iPhone 6 has changed my workflow is the ability to have Pages on my phone. I do not use the app often because I find it harder to write blog posts and papers on an iPhone, but if I ever need to quickly compose a blog post or paper for school, the app is there. Pages on iOS also allows the ability to use iCloud Drive and have the iCloud Drive app on my iPhone is a big help.
Social Media plays a big part in my daily iPhone usage. I am a big fan of Twitter (@iBeckTech) and the iPhone 6 has easily changed the way I view Twitter. Thanks to its big screen, I can see tweets and pictures more clearly. I should also point out that I am not using Twitter for iPhone, but instead, I use Tweetbot 4. It works the way a Twitter client should.
Lastly, we have the camera. I have been using it more for taking pictures for blog posts on my personal blog (I consider it to be practice writing for myself) and for life itself. Although it’s probably not as good as a camera on the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the iPhone SE, I really enjoy it. One thing you have to remember with smartphone camera is that it’s a smartphone with a camera, not a camera with a smartphone.
The iPhone 6 is one of those devices that I must use everyday. It’s big screen helps me out so much with my writing. It does also come in handy for taking photos and watching YouTube videos. Also, it just looks more professional by carrying a modern phone or a phone that has been updated within the past two years. My old iPhone 4S could not do that. If you’re a writer, business person, or social media savant, you need to have this phone. Not only is it a quality smartphone, but it’s the best looking smartphone money can buy right now.
