The iPhone can do so much more than voice-to-voice or FaceTime communication. By exploring Apple’s App Store, you can discover the best free apps that turn your handset into a budget planner, encyclopedia, or language-learning tool.
Here are some of the coolest and useful free apps for iPhone you need to have.
- Google Drive
Google Drive gives you 15GB of storage free to start, and it directly supports Google’s entire product portfolio. You can see your Google Photos or Google Docs files, for instance, and invite others to view, edit, or leave comments.
We all know how irritating ads can be, and when it comes to mobile web, they eat up your time and data.

After installation, you just have to open Settings, tap Safari, then Extensions, and Enable all their extensions, and you’re good to go.
- Chipper Cash
Chipper Cash works by allowing a window for transactions—sending, receiving, and requesting money. It can be within or outside your country of residence. I made a detailed article about this app here. You can run one’s eye over it.

In addition, the stock asset library and preset templates make it easy to edit your raw materials into something that’s sure to go viral
Spotify is like Apple Music, only it’s not tied to Apple devices, and there is a freemium tier that lets you listen to stations and playlists with ads.
