Wondering what to do with your old and aging iPhone? Here are tons of ways that you can use your old iPhone for.
Buying and using iPhone is all cool until it starts aging and most of its features suddenly start disappearing. People often find it hard to resale their used iPhone in satisfactory prices as it has been observed that Apple starts making the series of iPhone less compatible just to generate better sales for the new entries. In such a case, leaving your phone to waste is as heart wrenching as one can imagine.
We have created a list to enlighten readers about the ways they can use their iPhone if it connects to the wireless network.
Make it a Perfect iPod Replacement
If you have spent all your saving into buying a new iPhone but you need an iPod as well, your old iPhone will come into play.
For turning your old iPhone into a dedicated music player for streaming songs all you need to do is:
Connect it to a reliable Wi-Fi such as Verizon or Spectrum Internet Service available in more than 40 states in the United States.
Download music services such as Spotify or direct download music from iTunes straight into the device.
By doing two things you no longer have to drain your phone’s battery by listening to songs on it as you will have a secondary source to do so.
Also, your long commute will be a less dreading journey and more of a personal concert.
Your Kitchen Assistant
If you have an old iPhone, you don’t need to buy the Amazon Echo or Google Home in a heavy amount.
Only by keeping your old iPhone mounted in the kitchen, either positioned up on shelf or stuck to a wall you will have a complete kitchen assistant for yourself.
Moreover, with Siri, you can also enable the hands-free virtual assistant for seeing all the new recipes. Siri can also help you set timers and reminders for your food.
One of the most amazing things that you can do with your old iPhone in the kitchen is used for picking up calls while your hands are dipped in marinara sauce.
Here is an additional detail for the Siri feature:
Siri is Apple’s virtual assistant like Alexa for Amazon devices. However, Siri does not work the same on all Apple devices. If you have an iPhone 6s or higher, Siri will respond to you anytime. But if you have a lower version than the mentioned series than you need to plug your phone into power for Siri to respond to your requests.
To make sure the feature is working on your iPhone, open the setting icon in the display and tap Siri. Then select Allow “Hey Siri” to make the feature enable in your device.
Make sure you cook something delicious with your modern-day kitchen helper.
Turn Your Old iPhone into Remote Controller
Next time you panic, when you don’t find your remote controller know that your old iPhone can do all the work.
Instead of hurting your hands by digging into huge cushions or stress yourself out when the remote batteries die, try turning your old iPhone into a remote controller.
Many of the cable tv providers such as Spectrum, Verizon and Optimum offer apps available in the Apple store that makes it possible for your iPhone to turn into a remote controller.
Moreover, if you have an Apple TV all you need to do is download the Apple TV remote app to turn your phone into the secondary remote.
Just because you think, your aging iPhone isn’t as fascinating as the new entry in Apple family doesn’t mean your kids think the same.
Remember how every time your kids used to cling upon you to play some games on your phone but you were too sure they’ll make things go bad on your phone you always told them there were no games. Well, the time has come for you to let them play.
You can turn your old iPhone into a gaming device for kids. Select and download age-appropriate games from the Apple store for their entertainer.
This will also save money in your pocket, as you longer need to buy an additional gaming device for them.
It is always quite difficult to find ways to bring your old iPhone back to life. While it’s quite impossible to make it brand new what you can do with it is make it into a replacement to iPod, entertainer to kids, remote controller and more.
