13 Struggles Of Having An Old iPhone

You live that iPhone 4 or 5 life and it is a struggle

views

Updates take forever, new phones are expensive, you already know the way this phone works, you don't want to deal with the people at the Apple store. As a result, you have a good old iPhone 4 or a newer phone that you refuse to update, and whatever the reason for that, there are definitely a few downfalls to your plan of never adjusting.

1. You can't name the group chat

You know which group message is your brunch squad, but still, it'd be nice to see it on the top of the messages.

2. You can't react to messages

You can text haha but wouldn't reacting 'haha' be so much more rewarding.

3. You don't have any room on your phone

The photos are important, okay? They're memories.

4. Thumbprint identification?

Nope.

5. Manage your storage in settings

You get this message at least twice a day.

6. What?? iMessage games??

They're out of fashion before you can clear enough room to get them

7. Bitmoji

If I had a Bitmoji I could show you how sad I am about my lack of Bitmoji, but alas I cannot. Instead, there is a Bitmoji with longer hair and better eyebrows than my hypothetical one would have.

8. No new emojis!!

The lion is so cute... And I want to be able to use the nerd emoji, not just the glasses.

9. The little alien emoji you get after every hand emoji

Because your friend picked a skin tone that you can't see

10. Everyone complains about how tiny your phone is

Yes, this is the size yours used to be, you're just used to your tablet sized iPhone 6 Plus now.

11. Sometimes your apps aren't updated

It's fine, not like you wanted snap filters or Instagram stories anyway.

12. You still have photos from when you first got your phone

Braces. Lots of braces.

13. You get the alien emoji more than anything else

It rubs salt in the wound, just a little bit.

We all have that friend. That friend we love to death, but if we are sure of anything in this world, it’s that they will not respond to your text because they suck at texting. That moment when you see “Read 1:04 p.m.” and you’re like “and???? Helloooooooo!”

These are 25 responses for that dear friend.

1. Lol thanks for tagging me in that FB post, now text me tf back.


2. OMG, wait you met Chris Hemsworth and he’s professing his love to you??!! No? Okay, then you can def text me back.

3. Hey I’m coming to help you since you obviously broke your thumbs and can’t respond.

4. Lolol thanks for responding. I’ll just continue the conversation with myself. That’s cool.

5. Good chat.

6. Yeah I wouldn’t know how to respond either, pizza topping selection is a thought-provoking process. Take your time. Meditate on it.

7. The classic: ^^^^^^^^^


8. I hope you’re writing me the 8th Harry Potter novel.

9. That was a yes or no question. This isn’t difficult. You wouldn’t do well with ‘Sophie’s Choice.’

10. Omg, did you pass out from the excitement of getting a text from me? Totally understandable. Text me when you regain consciousness, love.

11. Omg what a witty and clever response. Nothing. So philosophical.

12. The only excuse I’ll accept is if you’re eating guac and don’t want to get it on your phone. Because avocados are life.

13. I love it when you do that adorable thing when you don’t text me back for hours. So cute.


14. Okay I’ll answer for you. Yes, you’re going out tonight. Glad we had this convo.

15. In the time it has taken you to respond, dinosaurs could have retaken the earth.

16. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

17. The dramatic but also very valid response: That’s what happens when you don’t respond for 30 minutes. People die.


18. I apologize for asking if you were coming to watch Bachelor, clearly the decision has caused you serious reflection on your priorities. I’m sorry to have caused you this existential crisis.

19. Sorry I annoyed you with my friendship. But like plz respond…

20. Your response time is longer than Ross and Rachel’s entire relationship. 10 seasons. You couldn’t text me back for 10 seasons?!!

21. Wait. You’re responding too fast. I can’t keep up. Hang on. Don’t respond so quickly. Jeez.

22. A subtle but perfectly placed gif. What will you go with? The classic eye roll perhaps or maybe a “you suck.”


23. Did you fall off a cliff? Wait, you don’t exercise. Pause your Netflix and respond b*tch.

24. Omg I WON THE LOTTERY. *responds* Lol now you respond…

25. And my personal favorite and go to, Did you text me and then decide to THROW YOUR PHONE ACROSS THE OCEAN?! Lol swim fast, I need an answer.

Your phone is great for checking social media, taking pictures with friends, and listening to music.

1. Google Drive/Docs

These are handy for making quick changes from your phone.

2. Target

Use the cartwheel function to find all kinds of savings on items when you stock up on snacks and necessities. It helps cut down your total immensely, and makes you feel less guilty for buying those late-night binge snacks.

3. A Coffee Shop App

Whether you're a Starbucks sucker, a Dunkin' Donuts fanatic, or a Coffee Bean lover, download the corresponding app. Each purchase gets you points that eventually get you a free drink. You'll also learn about special sales without pesky emails cluttering your inbox!

4. Netflix

This is great for when you have extra time between classes but don't want to lug your laptop along

5. A Password App

I recommend using 1Password. The app can hold all your logins and secure notes. You'll never have to call Mom and Dad again to get your Social Security number.

6. GroupMe

GroupMe is handy for group chats when not all members have the same phone type (it will happen. A lot.). GroupMe can be checked in a web browser, so you don't have to go back and forth between your laptop and phone when working on that group project.

7. Blackboard

If your school uses Blackboard as their homework platform, the app is a must. You won't waste time opening a tab on your phone and logging in. Because who wants to spend extra time trying to see if the professor uploaded a "class cancelled" announcement?

8. Uber/Lyft

Do NOT drink and drive.

9. A Food Ordering App

GrubHub, Postmates, take your pick. The price is worth breaking the monotony of dining hall food.

10. Quizlet

Quizlet is a great study tool. You enter the information that's on the test, and Quizlet generates questions based off that. Think of it as a practice test. Now you'll do better on the exam worth a crazy amount of your grade!

11. Spotify

Thousands of songs, available for free. Or you can spend $4.99 per month to listen offline, have unlimited skips, and more. And right now, Spotify is doing a package deal with Hulu for students. Two services for $5? Yes, please.
