12 Best Uses For Old iPhones
Virtual reality has endeavored to break from the shackles of our imaginations and into the real world for decades. Previous attempts, like Nintendo’s Virtual Boy system, met with mixed responses and short lives, never really gaining a foothold on the market or in the public consciousness.
In recent years, however, advances in technology led to renewed public interest. Devices like the Oculus, Vive, and PlayStation’s PSVR brought VR to the masses, so long as you have the desire, a semi-dedicated space, and several hundred dollars of disposable income. That last requirement still has some people at arm’s length. Getting into VR at that level requires a substantial investment for something you may not like or use very often.
Other companies took that as an opportunity to serve a different segment of the market who might want to dip their toes into VR without sinking a bunch of money upfront, using technology they already have at hand.
If you’ve been hesitant about jumping onto the VR bandwagon, an old iPhone can be a great low-cost option. You can get a head-mounted frame like Google Cardboard for about $20. As explained by PCMag, while you won’t have access to the same VR lineup as more advanced devices, there are still a number of fun VR experiences that your iPhone is fully capable of running.
