Since the pandemic phone usage has hit an all time high. In a recent study 46% of respondents to a survey said they had increased their smartphone use since the pandemic hit.
This is also backed up by the growth in mobile app downloads. Reports shown that these have grown 23.3% since the pandemic, specifically in the work-from-home, food delivery, and fitness segments. While it’s hard to imagine a world without smartphones, it’s only been ten years since the iPhone App Store and Google Play store first launched. By 2022, it’s expected that mobile app downloads will reach 258 billion — a 45% increase since 2017.

Business phones can be loaded with apps, which facilitate project management, scheduling, finance management and much more.
