So a few days ago, my grandma's crappy flip phone finally died. We were thinking about just buying her a new one when it dawned on me, I have an old 3GS sitting in a drawer that's perfectly functional. I restored and updated it to 6.1.6 and put my grandma's SIM card into it. My grandma is 80 and we were concerned it would be too big of a learning curve for her, being that she's never used any sort of a computing device before and has no concept of menus or touch screen buttons. After a couple of days of patiently teaching her and her practicing on her own, my grandma is finally able to text me all by herself. I never thought I would be able to text my 80 year old grandmother and have her reply to me. My mom is absolutely ecstatic. Little does my grandma know, she even has her own email address now! But I think that's a bit beyond her so I won't even bother teaching her about that. Apple is amazing for creating a sophisticated computing device that's so simple even an 80 year old who has never used a computer can pick it up and be comfortable with it in no time. Also, the quality and update support are second to none. The phone is 5 years old now and can still run most current apps and iOS 6 just received a security update recently. Simply astonishing. Please chime in with your stories of elderly relatives and their first iOS experience!
