an indulgence, but a thoroughly enjoyable one

I have a new iPhone 8. I love it.

iPhone 8My previous phone was an iPhone 5s which I have had, I want to say, for four years. I was trying to keep limping along with it, but I was getting squeezed for storage space. I was deleting both apps and photos (copying the photos to my PC) to free up space. And it was getting slower.

Terry’s iPhone 5c had flat out died, and she needs her smart phone for work. She went to the Verizon store and came home with an iPhone 8. I tried to resist, but reached the point where I was simply not productive with my 5s.

I ventured out to the Verizon store and came home with my new iPhone 8.

I’m very happy with it. I have 60 gigabytes of storage instead of 16. I can store my audiobooks and podcasts, and the screen is large enough to be able to read Kindle books as well. I was able to reinstall the apps I deleted.

Not only that, but I set up Apple Pay, which is amazingly convenient at the few places that accept it.

As part of the accessory package I got a protective case and cover and a wireless charger. I no longer have to plug my iPhone into the connector to charge it, but simply place it on the pad. And I got one for Terry as well.

It is more money on the monthly bill, but it’s such a pleasure.

    I know you will enjoy it. I just got one when the new Starbucks app wouldn’t load on my old 6s!
