Apple changed the world nine years ago when it released the first iPhone. It sounds hyperbolic but I assure you, the original iPhone quite literally reshaped the mobile industry. It also changed the way we access information and connect with each other. The giants of the industry at the time have now all but vanished. Android, which was being developed as a terrible BlackBerry copy, was reimagined and released as the platform we now know.
There have been plenty of retrospective pieces covering the iPhone to celebrate its nine-year anniversary, and some have been fairly interesting. But in light of all the negativity currently surrounding Apple’s next-generation iPhone, I thought it might be nice to look at some of the ways Apple’s mobile phone is still far better than its chief rival, Android.

One of the coolest Google Maps tricks is being able to set multiple destinations. You no longer have to plan simple A-to-B trips, and then request new directions whenever a new destination comes along. With multiple stops, A-to-B-to-C-to-D routes are easy to set up. However, as useful as the feature is, it also used to be pretty annoying in one significant regard: it was only available on the desktop website, which is hardly convenient when most people rely on iPhone and Android for their navigating. Thankfully, that just changed, and you’re going to be able to use multiple destinations on mobile as well.
If you have a dream, you really should do everything in your power to make it happen. And if you want to marry your iPhone or any inanimate object for that matter, there’s a chapel in Las Vegas (where else?) that will do it for you. More →
To call the iPhone a revolutionary device is nothing short of an understatement. Given the myriad of ways in which Apple’s iconic smartphone has profoundly impacted not only the way we use mobile devices but how we communicate and interact with the world at large, the iPhone is undeniably a once-in-a-lifetime device whose far-reaching influence may never again be matched. Not surprisingly, TIME earlier this year called it the most influential gadget in history.
One of the reasons why the iPhone is an innovation that stands above most is that it immediately turned an entire industry on its head. When Steve Jobs first introduced the device, he boasted that it was five years ahead of anything else on the market. And as it turned out, it took about that long before Android devices managed to reach parity with the iPhone.

Identity theft is one of the worst things that can happen to someone online, and getting rid of the problems that follow might become a never-ending quest. Considering that millions of consumers have had personal details stolen in the last few years, cyber criminals have a seemingly easy task at hand: gathering enough data about a person to start impersonating him or her for financial gain.
Now authorities are now investigating a new type of fraud based on stealing someone’s identity which is currently surging: stealing mobile accounts. More →

You know who doesn’t like to be spied? Mark Zuckerberg. That’s probably why he covers with tape both the camera and microphone of his Mac. Ironically, though, Facebook does some spying of its own. A new report shows that the giant social network is tracking your phone’s location to suggest friends based on where you’re going. Before you get too paranoid about it, you should know it only tracks your location if it has the permission to do so. You can prevent it from ever happening again by simply going to the settings app on the iPhone or Android device that you’re using. More →

Many distinct entities are looking to kill the password, or replace it with better, more secure ways of logging into several online services. Banks are among them, and it’s easy to understand why. They want to protect their money. In light of the many security breaches that have put at risk the identities and online assets of millions of users, banks are encouraging customers to sign up for in-app biometric authentication methods. Scanning a fingerprint, the eye, or recording voice is a lot easier, and more secure, than logging into online banking services using credentials that hackers can steal or social engineer. And the iPhone is a big reason why banks are looking to kill the password. More →
