Use just the iPhone but know its limits.  Zooming in on subjects is out.  Fast action sports when it isn't a sunny day is also out.  Have to use a flash in low light.  And the list goes on.  However, the iPhone is as compact as you are going to get.  So giving up some things might be worth it.

And boy howdy, can a complex (better?) camera really jack up a quick photo if you don't have the time to learn how to operate it like a pro.  Blue tint photos, blurred subjects, a perfectly exposed tiny patch of sunlight in a room with the subject left as a silhouette, nose in focus with the rest of the face out of focus, the list goes on and on.  The iPhone will generally get the shot without thinking.
