I really appreciated the tone of her article, and I agree that she makes an excellent point!
Well said Annie and I agree all comments (Just_Me_D & Tadpoles too). Well written article without big splash claims, just a sound case for spending 200$ less on a model that has everything this demographic would need.
The Pro Max was/is the big headline (I agree with the author, dynamic island is great) but many just won’t use or notice the PM’s premium features. 14+ is nice big display, very good picture taking, snappy, top of the line battery life, it’s durability is just as good as the PM, and it’s iOS (much better at keeping scams and malware away).
One thing I’d like the author to add for this demographic’s need that is just as good on the 14+, MagSafe. Plugging the small charge connector into the lightning port may be difficult task for some in this group (not to mention the cable end can fall off the table). A MagSafe puck is a nice accessibility feature.
