Last week, Apple released the iPhone 6 and everyone seems to be super excited about it. This happens every time an iPhone is released into the market because they are among the most powerful smartphones in the world. However, iPhones and most Apple products have a time limitation after which they become rather obsolete. Then, you can do the basic calling, texting and if you are very lucky, download a few apps every now and then. So what is it that you can do with your old iPhone? You will be surprised to know that there are a whole lot of interesting things you can do:
Improve home security and monitor kids
Security monitors are expensive. Did you know you can transform your phone into a video surveillance system for your home or office? All you need to do is download the free Presence app from Apple Store. Pair up your new iPhone with the old one and you have yourself a first-rate security camera as well as a motion detector. You know how good iPhone cameras are, so you do not have to worry about the quality of the videos it will take. With this, you can maintain the security of your home and have alerts sent in real time if there’s any suspicious activity.
Still connected to security, you can turn your phone into a baby monitor. If you want your baby to stay in the playroom as you clean up in another room, this can be an option. You do not have to spend a fortune on a high-tech baby monitor when you can use your old iPhone. The Cloud Baby Monitor app will allow you to check real-time videos of your baby. On top of that, this app provides two-way audio. Not only will you be able to hear your baby but you can also sing them a lullaby from whichever area of the house you may be in.
Do you need a navigation system? You probably use your iPhone for this already. Using the Hudway app, you can view your directions and route on your windshield- like a projector. The app’s reflection on the windshield is a genius way to keep you traveling in the right direction especially in heavy rainfall or fog.
There are just so many things that you can do with your old iPhone. It can be a great media player, gaming tool, and even a personal organizer. Bottom line is that you never lack something to do with your iPhone!
