Apple recently announced all the new stuff coming and Hubs and I both saw things we wanted.
He was on the fence for a long time about getting a bigger size phone (Mostly because the newer models don't have the home button anymore and are a little harder to navigate). Right now we both have the 2020 SE models which is fine for me but they are kind of small in his hands. That must be uncomfortable! So with the new one coming out in a color he likes, it was a little easier to help him choose. I am staying with their SE line though.
And you can't have a new phone without a case~!
We don't really do the matching couples thing but he did let me pick out our new cases which actually do match! In one of our favorite games, Monster Hunter, there is a pair of monsters that are actually a couple. Whenever there is an event related to Valentine's Day or romance in general, Rathalos and Rathian are celebrated. So I just had to get these phone cases!
I really like the designs but I do wish the printing was done differently. Here's hoping they last a while!
