It can tell you how to get to the nearest coffee shop and what the weather’s like across the globe.
And now it appears your iPhone can also tell you about your mental state.
A study has found that iPhone and iPad users are the most optimistic among phone owners - while those who own Blackerry gadgets are the most negative about their futures.
Nearly a third of iPhone owners and 60 per cent of iPad owners expect the best in uncertain times, according to a survey by gadget recycling company Gazelle.
They are also the least likely to get upset easily, with more than a third saying their moods are not affected by today’s trying economic times.
In stark contrast, not one Blackberry user surveyed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada expected the best on a daily basis.
A third believe if something can go wrong for them, it will, while the same number ‘rarely count on good things happen to them’, the results showed.
Owners of Android products are more upbeat, with 28 per cent of smartphone users and 36 percent of tablet users always optimistic about their future.
The study, commissioned to understand the sociology behind types of smartphone buyers, found iPhone users were also more sociable, with around two thirds enjoying spending time with their friends ‘a lot’.
Android users are perhaps the hardest working with nearly half of phone users and two thirds of tablet users saying it is important to keep busy.
‘Who knew that Apple users had such a promising outlook on life, while BlackBerry owners hardly expect things to go their way?’ Israel Ganot, from Gazelle, said.
‘Our survey aimed to celebrate the passion many at the Consumer Electronics Show have for their gadgets and the latest and greatest trends in consumer electronics.’
