While most young people would be super excited to unwrap an Apple iPhone box on Christmas day, Grandma was not so pleased.

"I'm really not equipped to handle this," she said, noting that she uses a landline.

Fortunately for her, it wasn't exactly an iPhone, but it was still pretty sweet.

The new app, released today, uses photographic algorithms that tie in with the iPhone's own gyroscope to stabilize videos as you take them. The result is cool time lapse footage like you see above. Currently an Android version is in the work as well.

3D touch on the iPhone 6 allows you to weigh things directly on your phone, but for some reason, Apple doesn't want people building scale apps. Many have tried, but been rejected by the app store because Apple says "the concept of a scale app is not appropriate for the app store," whatever that means. Asaf Avidan Antonir built a simple game that uses 3D touch to move a dot between lines (think Flappy Bird), but the important part is the "training" function. Within training mode, you can figure out how much force you're exerting to practice moving the dot, or just use the thing as a scale for...whatever you want.

Immersed in his own phone, it wasn't until the gunman flashed the weapon in his face that he jumped into action, taking the gun from his hands and tackling him to the floor.

Take a step back into the past and watch Steve Jobs introduce this bad boy to the world and change it forever.
