Getting your hands on an iPhone opens up a whole new world of possibilities and iStore makes this possible. From revolutionary apps to the most advanced software, graduating with flying colours, acing your first job interview, and enjoying every day to the max just became second nature. So whether you spend your days on campus studying or you’re giving your first job all you’ve got, here are just a few things we think you’ll love about iPhone.
Staying on top of your game
Being a young professional or student and progressing with your plans of taking over the world with your talent and ideas, means that your calendar is full to the brim with work, classes and most importantly, socialising. With so much on the go, your iPhone along with it’s cool features and various productivity, finance (for your social exploits of course!) and organisation apps literally become your virtual best friend.
Take coordinating everyone’s schedules and contributions for a group project for example; this can be a bit of a pain at the best of times. Unless there’s chocolate…and a room full of bean bags and trampolines. And music. Ok let’s be honest, not the most productive scenario now is it? Slack is a great tool to coordinate and consolidate communication, files and information for teams working on different types of projects. You can access it on the go so you’ll always be updated on the latest status of the project and tasks that need completing.
There’s also getting to grips with your finances and savings - a nice ‘err’ perk of growing up? Easier said than done, we know! Luckily, there are apps out there like 22seven which make budgeting and saving a whole lot easier than manually putting an excel spreadsheet and trying to apply some of those formulas you learnt in your last accounts class. It helps you to see exactly how much you spend and on what. Based on this, it assists you with putting together a budget that you can stick to on a monthly basis. So whether you’re saving for your first car or just trying to spend wisely each month, with your iPhone and the 22seven app you’ll have all the tools you need to stay on top of your finances.
All your favourite tunes for less
There’s nothing better than getting your hands on the latest music to hit the charts, sharing new artist finds with your friends or walking around campus with the soundtrack to your life always at hand. Well, did you know that if you’re a student, you can join Apple Music and get a 50% discount for up to 4 years?! With Apple Music, you get access to millions of songs, recommendations and curated playlists based on what you like and your mood. The best part is, if you’re part of the larger Apple family you can also access Apple Music on your iPad, Apple Watch, Mac or Apple TV.
