Man Shows 'How People Over 40 Unlock Their Phone' and It's Hilarious

This is so true for many of us!

Technology has been embraced in different ways by different groups of people over the years. Some have grown up with some devices, knowing a smartphone was a rite of passage for getting older and (hopefully) responsible while other generations remember the days without the omnipresence of computers and internet connectivity integrated into everyday life. Older folks have been able to adapt to modern communications, creating some incredible interactions with their younger peers. 

Cell phones are the most common modern device across different demographics, including age groups, as they've become vital to keeping in touch and pretty much run our lives. While ownership of specific models is rather general, there are some preferences that seem to point to a potential "generation gap" among users. TikTok user @ericroberts44 has highlighted a notable difference between older and younger phone owners. 

Sometimes these videos don't make sense to me, but I'll admit, this one is spot-on. My mom has a smartphone that she keeps in a case, and she opens it frequently to check things. She has an Android, so I don't believe she has ever used FaceID to open it. My dad, of course, still has a flip phone and refuses to change.

Commenters have some interesting responses to this video. "jokes on you coz when I drop my phone its protected by the case and your phone has a shattered screen js," retorted Teresa Louise141. chloe_robertson mentioned, "I'm 26 and I've had that case since the age of 20." "wrr I'm over 40 and there is no way on earth I'd have a cover like that...ever," insisted Maisey.
