A feat people mere decades ago would’ve referred to as science fiction. Of course, though, an iPhone is still just a phone. And a phone still has its one purpose. Nevertheless, it’s still helpful to keep track of your recent calls for the sake of time management, organization, or for business reasons in maintaining a good relationship with clients.
