“We” as in me or we as in everybody? Or we as in society? If we is me, then no. Power wise, I’d be fine with an iPad Pro from 4 years ago because all i do all the damn time is watch Netflix,YouTube and browse reddit like a zombie. But if ”we” as in society, yes. WE need a continuous improvement year over year of technology because better and faster technology births new innovations. Innovative apps, innovative industries, innovative ideas and new implementations.
I remember thinking when i had an iPhone 4 “it takes such great pics! Do we even need better than this??”. If i compared the pics i can take on my xs max to my iPhone 4, my iPhone 4 would look like a blurry unrefined mess. Perception changes all the time. What is good today wont be a year from now.
