2007 saw the arrival of the original iPhone, and since then smartphones have revolutionised the way we use our phones: they have completely changed how we communicate, connect and consume. Overtime, smartphones have even made several items completely redundant in today's society, but what else is there left for smartphones to replace? Is the sky truly the limit?
