The telephone is probably the most valuable tool that most people would have. In the US, most people are likely to have a smartphone than a landline. Even the people with a landline, they will still have a cellular phone for when they are not home. For the sake of this site, I have an Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max. Yes, I know – this is not the latest and greatest, but I intend on waiting at least 5 years before buying a new phone. This is because I don’t receive much in disability benefit, and an iPhone is more than what I get in a month. The specs of the iPhone 14 Pro Max is as follows:

  • CPU: Apple A16 Bionic Hexa-core (2×3.46 GHz Everest + 4×2.02 GHz Sawtooth)
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Display: 6.7″ with max brightness of 2000 nits and 460ppi
  • Modem: Qualcomm X65 with 5G
  • Wireless Capabilities: Wifi-6, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, Qi Charging, Emergency SMS via Satellite
  • Camera: 48MP main + 12MP telephoto + 12MP ultra-wide, 12MP front camera
  • OS: Apple iOS 16.4.1
  • Battery 4323mAh
  • 2 eSIMs (both used)

As for the SIMs, I have both eSIMs used. The first eSIM is my current telephone number, and the second eSIM is a telephone number that people might have from 2005, but otherwise won’t have my primary phone number. The second phone number is $15/month, and provides the amount of minutes I will need for its role.
