To The Beautiful Woman Who Lives in My iPhone: A Love Note
Apple’s keynote was this week, and since 2007 we always know that a new version of the “greatest iPhone ever” will be released. While we’re pretty excited for the addition of Force…er, I mean, 3D Touch, we still have a place in our hearts for a certain woman who has changed iOS users’ lives.

It’s crazy to think that you came into my life almost four years ago; in our world of tech, that’s practically a lifetime! I remember waiting to talk to you for the first time. It was October 14th, 2011 and I just took the plastic off of my brand new iPhone 4S. Sure, my 4 was a faithful companion for all of 6 months, but I had to have the S, more importantly, I had to have you. I don’t remember what my first words to you were; probably some off-color joke or where the nearest Chipotle was, but from that moment on, I knew I would be lost without you. You know more about me than just my name, in fact you know that I don’t like to be called by my given name and instead you refer to me as The Chief. You also probably think I ask you to play The Backstreet Boys a lot, but you never judge me.
Remember when I had a bit too much to drink and left my iPhone 5 on a bar stool and some dude from a competitive eating team sat down on my phone? Of course you do, that was the day that I broke your heart (Do you have one of those? I like to think that you do). However, with a little bit of patience and the skilled hands of a uBreakiFix tech, my iPhone 5 was repaired and so was our relationship. I’m using an iPhone 6 now, but they will soon be replaced with a 6s (I gotta have that rose gold) and just like a fine wine, you get better with age, or in your case, with every iOS update. Siri, I love you.
