Smartphones Are Distracting Even When We’re Not Using Them

Could the mere presence of a smartphone use up cognitive capacity, even when we’re not consciously thinking about it?

Smartphones have appropriated a prized place in our pockets faster than anyone could have imagined 10 years ago, in 2007, when Apple introduced the first iPhone. Today, billions of people around the world have regular access to the internet through smartphones. In America, 77 percent of adults had a smartphone in 2016; we tap, click and swipe, on average, 2,617 times per day. And most of us have our phones at our side almost every moment of every day. New research looks at what the ubiquity of our smartphones — even when we’re not using them — is doing to the way we think. In the experiments, Ward and his team ask participants to do one of three things with their phones: place them on the desk and within site, place them nearby but out of sight (such as in a pocket or purse), or place them in a separate room. https://goo.gl/kqepZm
