The new iPhone is out.  I’m perplexed.

Do I need the new phone? No.  Do I want the new phone? Yea, I think I do.

The only cell phone I’ve ever had is an iPhone.  Let me tell you how that happened.  I held on to my flip phone for way too long.  But I was able to text, place calls and receive calls, so honestly, like every other 70-year-old, I thought I was fine.  Except I was in my 50’s.  Then one day, at the grocery store, I dropped it.  It split in two. Now what?

I had begun to create a pretty good contact list for my golf show, and all I could think about was losing all of those contacts.  They had taken years to cultivate.  Off I went to Verizon.  They looked at it, took it to a back room, came back and pronounced it “dead”.  They did tell me that Apple MIGHT be able to do something, but to not get my hopes up.  So, off to Apple I went.  Same thing, they looked at it, went into a back room, but this time, when they emerged they said “Yea, we can restore your contact list, on one of our phones”.  That was all I needed to hear, I’ll take a phone!

I’ve never looked back.  I love it. I’ve always loved it. So much so, that I’ve debated getting a Apple laptop.  Not so quick to convert there.  The lady in my life, who works on Apple products for a living, was/is concerned that after years of Microsoft products, I’d have a hard time making the switch.  All I needed to hear.

The phone I have now, I have because Apple was going to shortly stop supporting my version.  So I upgraded, iPhone 11.  Now, here’s the iPhone 13… if not now, when.  When they stop supporting the “11”?  I feel like I should be more proactive than that.  Then again, my phone is fine.

I’ll keep you posted.
