I use my secondary iPhone 5 for things like Walmart Pay, store discount cards (I have an app that presents the bar code to be scanned) and places that payment systems that aren't Apple Pay.iPhone can be used for lots of other things besides personal iPhone. A spare iPhone 5 can be used as a speedometer/odometer or Bluetooth voltmeter display or lots of other things. Used more like a tool than a play machine. I'm a firm believer in having a daily driver phone and an older (smaller) backup/spare with all the exact apps & settings on both. All data gets saved to iCloud so it's available to either phone at any time. For some people, the iPhone has become their only computing device with so much important data on it. To lose a phone or for it to brick would be devastating. Gotta have a spare iPhone.
Funny how people can see that differently. You think it's wasting money to own more than one device at a time.No, and I can’t imagine why I would need one. Even if my phone was lost or destroyed, I would just go straight out and buy a new one.
I love tech but I hate redundancy and feeling like I’ve wasted money. I never own two devices that do the same thing for longer than it takes to give away or sell the less useful one.
