I read this as a Kindle book, although I think as an Advance Reader Copy rather through the Amazon interface (there was a time when I had a surfeit of spare time and volunteered to help proofread in exchange for free books), some time around 2012-2016. I'm blanking on a lot of the details, but the main character, a teenage boy, finds a smartphone in a hotel room (I want to say that one or both of his parents owned the hotel? Worked there?) and he learns that the icons on its home screen cast spells. Not long after that, the actual owner of the phone, a kind of dark magician, is after him. If I recall correctly, the phone was a new prototype and the magical society hadn't yet decided whether it should be allowed to stand. This might have even been an illicitly obtained prototype. Either way, it bypassed the usual method of long study and memorization of rituals, and it was very important for this dark wizard to find it again.
Other than that, it's a bunch of vague memories. I remember that one of the early spells he uses creates a small tornado that I think wrecks the hotel room. A later spell, I think sets fire to his school's theatre prop room. He has a female friend who is involved in the theatre who winds up accompanying him as they try to evade the dark wizard and I think there are hints of a blossoming romance. At some point, the dark wizard is leaving a social club of some sort which caters to wizards. At another point, the protagonist and his friend are at some sort of underground area where magical creatures that can't fit in with humans live, and they're attacked by dark wizards, one of which has the protagonist's father's face (I believe said father was away on business travel, and it looked like this was going to shape up to be the source of the protagonist's ability to use the magic phone, but it turned out it was an illusion or a coincidence).
It's not part of Diane Duane's Young Magician series, although I know they also have magic smartphones. I don't remember anything about the cover. I feel like it was supposed to be the first book of a series, but I don't know if further books were ever released.
