I wouldn't picture you not having the latest iPhone for some reason. What do you use?

Probably not for a long long time. Apple has figured out and popularized something that is very hard to do - make tech easy to use paired with very stylish design. Other companies can copy the stylish designs, but Apple controls their software, whereas other companies have open architecture.
MacOS and iPhone OS is designed to be streamlined. Windows and Android are both open. This creates serious issues in terms of usability across different platforms, where Apple doesn't have that issue. Using an iPhone is simple, fast, and you get the same user experience (mostly) across every phone in that model. Not the same with Android at all.
The resurgence of Apple within the last 10 years has been astonishing. Years ago when someone said they were buying a mac I literally laughed at them.
