Actor Chris Evans has revealed his iPhone 6S lastly died, tweeting a tiny obituary to his loyal cellphone.

“RIP iPhone 6s,” the Lightyear voice actor tweeted on Thursday. “We had a very good run. I’ll miss your house button. I received’t miss the nightly battle of making an attempt to get you to cost. Or your grainy footage. Or your sudden drops from 100% battery, to 15%, to utterly useless all inside minutes. It was a wild experience. Relaxation straightforward, pal.”

It is easy to know why Evans may need been experiencing points along with his iPhone within the lead as much as its premature demise. Launched Sept. 25, 2015, the iPhone 6S was a part of Apple’s ninth technology of telephones, which was quite a lot of iterations in the past now. The iPhone 6S is geriatric by smartphone requirements, having been discontinued when Apple launched its 12th technology of telephones in 2018. We’re at the moment within the 15th technology.

The iPhone 6S did have a number of surprising energy points when it was nonetheless pretty new, with Apple providing battery replacements in 2016. It is unclear whether or not Evans was amongst those who took up this provide. However even when his iPhone 6S had labored completely on the time, seven years of problem-free operation is asking lots from any smartphone.

Regardless of the iPhone 6S’ age, information that Evans hadn’t upgraded his cellphone earlier than now could be unsurprising. Whereas he could also be an internationally well-known actor who may most likely afford to purchase a brand new cellphone, Evans has by no means portrayed himself as somebody who loves having the most recent tech.

“Pricey All Know-how, Keep in mind the 90’s once you simply WORKED???” Evans tweeted in 2019. “I don’t want a ‘sensible’ characteristic on my TV, thermostat, lights, music, fridge, safety cameras, and f-ing automobile. You’re a serious ache in all of our asses. You’re not value it.”

Some tech fans will actually queue as much as be among the many first to purchase the most recent new cellphone. In distinction, it appears Evans is a member of the cohort who sensibly select to get essentially the most out of their gadgetry earlier than looking for an improve, and are not bothered about utilizing a cellphone that was discontinued 4 years in the past.

Evans additionally gave a nod to his iPhone 6S’s house button in his fond farewell. This characteristic was faraway from Apple’s flagship telephones with the iPhone X in 2017, which can have been one influencing issue within the actor’s determination to not improve. 

Fortuitously for the MCU’s first Captain America, Apple hasn’t utterly deserted the house button. Whereas the iPhone 13 and 13 Professional depend on Face ID for his or her biometric unlock, the third technology iPhone SE nonetheless makes use of the house button, and was launched simply this 12 months as half of the present technology of telephones.

The iPhone SE additionally shares a kind issue with the iPhone 8, which is only a hair larger than the iPhone 6S, whereas its inner {hardware} is extra on par with the iPhone 13. Assuming Evans desires to stay with Apple’s ecosystem, the iPhone SE looks as if it might be a fairly good decide for him, providing extra energy inside a well-known construct.

No matter he decides to go for, he may not should resolve immediately. Until Evans has already dashed out to seize a brand new iPhone, there’s an opportunity his devoted previous 6S may need had a number of final dying gasps in it: Evans’ tribute tweet was despatched through iPhone.

UPDATE: Jun. 24, 2022, 2:27 p.m. It appears Evans has certainly purchased himself a brand new cellphone already, sharing a photograph of the gadget on Instagram. It seems to be an iPhone 13 or 13 Professional, which is sensible. He is already confirmed he is not a lot of a tech head, so it is affordable that he’d merely attain for Apple’s flagship cellphone. It is unhappy to assume he may have stored his house button, however possibly he actually is lastly prepared to maneuver on.
