Yesterday, my new iPhone 7 arrived, and I am in Wow Mode!
First, they were out and back ordered, and they promised delivery on or before December 5th. It arrived on November 16th - the first under-promise-over-deliver element of the transaction.
When I got it out of the box, I was a little clueless about how to transfer all the data and get it up and running. So it was off to T-Mobile, my mobile carrier, and they cheerfully did it all for me. No charge.
And once it was set up, the phone impressed. It doesn't have an earphone jack, but it has an earphone that plugs into the power cord slot and works perfectly. I took this picture tonight after dark on my way to my car after an appointment. And I realized that this tiny little camera was better than my big old fancy Nikon that weighed a bunch of pounds and was complicated. And this little number has a terrific lens that works well for wide angle shots.
And it's more or less waterproof. I've had a few incidents of dropping phones into more than damp places - luckily I had phone insurance that replaced the phone.
But what I'm trying to say is that Apple products are special. The designs are attractive. They work. They last a long time. They are cutting edge. And they tend to be sold at places that provide great service.
And at this moment, I am really thankful for the people who work for Apple designing and manufacturing these products - including the MacBook that I'm using to write this post and the iPhone that does everything else!
