    Give you anxiety sometimes? I personally can't manage having multiple devices myself . I like just having one daily driver and focusing on using it . What about you ?

    I use all my devices, depending on what I’m doing. Not inducing any anxiety

    My biggest confusion is between my iPad and MacBook Pro, because both are computers to me. Except for taking written notes which I always do on my iPad, I simply always switch between the two.

    This reply was written on my iPad.

    Mac Mini for when I'm home editing photos.

    MacBook Pro when I'm on site editing photos.

    iPad for editing mobile photos.

    iPhone for taking mobile photos and replying to forum threads (and the occasional phone call).

    I love having and switching between multiple devices. The only anxiety I have is in regard to the cost of the one I am planning on purchasing next!

    I use my OnePlus as my daily driver still because the radios are better. Apple still restricts cellular for some reason. Though I always have the iPhone for the Apple Watch and other things. I mostly use my OnePlus for day to day and my iphone after work.

    Samsung was my daily driver for about a year. But now with iPhone 12 Pro, I’m just now sticking with one device. I have sold my previous Samsung phones.

    Do you mean multiple “phones”? If so, I did that years ago. At the time, I was carrying a work-issued Nextel and my personal phone. I thought it was cool back then. I wouldn’t want to do it these days.

    If you’re referring to devices, regardless of type then no, having them does not give me anxiety. Each one has its place. My iPhone gets the most use by far, followed by my iPad Pro and then my MacBook Pro.

    In fact, I’m fighting the urge to go and buy the new M1 MacBook Air...

    I love having multiple devices - everything has it's use. My iPhone (work) and Pixel (personal) are usually close by and used daily. Macbook Pro is hooked up to a Thunderbolt Display and used as a desktop setup for work. iPad Air is used for general computing and the occasional game around the house or when traveling.

    My cellular watch and phone are sort of a multiple devices but I realized a Mini would be nice for days like today - I'm planning an epic off road bike ride same time a vendor is doing data center tasks.

    Overall the cellular watch and 12 Pro Max that replaced XS Max have been great.

    I have a iPhone 12 Pro as my Dalit driver and is integrated to my iMac 27 desktop. Keeps everything simple and straightforward.

    I also switch to my Blackberry Key2 every now and then. I have said this many times that the integration between the iPhone and the Mac desktop is second to none and is valuable tool in keeping things organized.

    No. I gave up doing the multiple device thing just because, for me, it's pointless, it wastes money, and it costs too much. I only carry around a 512GB iPhone 12 Pro after having the 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, and Note 20 Ultra in my possession at the same time. I sold the rest.

    What makes you think that ? it may be true,but there is nothing in the original post to indicate that !
    I do remember a time when that was a thing, but that was so long ago that pagers were still in the mix. I also think of my iPad as a device !

    I have a personal phone and a work phone. I don’t like carrying two phones but it’s a must. I don’t have anxiety about it. Just have to keep up with them!

    I find this interesting, no criticism intended but how do you handle the work phone/ personal phone thing ? does everybody only turn their personal phones on at break times ? I am sure most employers would prefer not to pay for time used on personal calls ! In fact I remember in the dim and distant that no personal calls were allowed during working hours in a lot of companies. I will certainly call anyone working for me to account if they are not doing what they are paid for, for longer than a couple of minutes !

    Haha this is exactly why I don't like having issued a work phone. Then they can bother you any time of the day .

    I only have a personal phone, that is paid in part by my employer. My phone is on 24/7, but I can’t be called for any reason at all times… As long my job is done, it can’t be taken against me.

    The labour code here is pretty clear that the employer is required to pay for the time I am on the employer’s premises and/or at the service of my employer.
    As such, they can’t cut my pay if I receive a personal call during work hours; however, abusing it can lead to sanctions like suspensions or termination.

    The employer paying part is probably what I’d like in this arrangement.

    I carry my iPhone 12 Pro Max and my iPhone X S Max. I also carry an iPhone 11 for work, which they provide.

    My iPad Pro stays home or goes with me on travel, but I don’t carry it every day.

    "Back in the day", LOL , I thought I was important and "cool", so I carried/used three smartphones ( Blackberry 9930/Z10, Samsung S3/Note 3 and iPhone 5s) at one time or another. Well, those days and that way of thinking came to an end as my world and circle became a lot smaller and there was no longer a need to give out my numbers to different people based on phone and importance..LOL .

    As far as my Apple devices are concerned, no I do not have a problem or anxiety with them or using multiple devices. I tend to gravitate towards my iPhone first then my MacBook Pro and last but not least my iPad.
