    Who uses their iPhone as a main device? I find myself pretty much exclusively using the iPhone for just about everything online. My MacBook gets used for MS Office and that's about it. Apple TV takes care of media consumption but for YouTube etc the iPhone still takes up most of the slack. So much so I just sold my iPad Air 2 and haven't missed it once.

    The same here. an iPhone for everything online ! MBP for just some more technical things like programming and photoshop. the iPad is having a Deep sleep :) use it when reading eBooks thanks to its bigger screen.

    My 7+ is used as a phone for messages, texts and "lite" internet.

    My iPad Pro 9.7 is still far superior for main Internet consumption. My laptop is for emergency use only and desktops are still a must in my life.

    I do not enjoy doing the Internet on my phone.

    I'm almost the same as @Newtons Apple .
    • iPhone is a device of convenience, as it's always with me. It's also my camera, scheduler, reminder, & communication device.
    • iPad is my primary note-taking, browsing, and media consumption device.
    • iMac (home & office) is more for work.

    For light multi-tasking, sure, my 7 Plus suits this. Anything above this directed to my PC and iPad.

    My main device is my 12.9" iPad Pro. That being said, my iPhone gets a lot of use too. Currently an SE, but moving back to a 6s+ in the next few days.

    Mac Pro is my main device. I work on it and most of my internet consumption is being done on it. I'm in a similar situation as Newtons Apple above:

    - 7+ = phone/messages/some internet/some games/music when I'm outside/(and some netflix when I'm feeling lazy ;))
    - Mac Pro(s) = music production/main internet consumption

    I literally couldn't live without a desktop*








    *which is why Apple is going to announce a new Mac Pro tomorrow. :mad::)

    This, except I use my iPhone for a lot more. Lite browsing and video watching definitely, but I do prefer it for music and have no problems using it to look up info on IMDb, buying movie tickets, managing my bank account, casting videos, etc.
