Yes, the elderly can use the Apple iPhone thanks to Silverline apps

bigger sized buttons for easier navigation. The "Well-Being" app can set a reminder when it is time to take your meds and the "Emergency" button is your one press connection to the cops or medical help for those times when you've fallen and can't get up.
The company, based in Singapore, wants to keep the elderly connected to the rest of the world. And why not let them stay young by carrying around a young man's handset? While the service is not available yet in the states, we wouldn't be surprised to see an enterprising carrier deciding to give Silverline a shot. Besides, the elderly are more apt to pay their bills on time. Hear that, carriers? For more information on the program, visit the sourcelink.

Old people can use an iPhone with some crazy app, because the iPhone isnt really a smartphone, any device that a 3 yr old and an 65 yr old can handle is not consider a smartphone, its consider a kids phone! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

WOW! True innovation! It must be the first phone that can be used as a camera replacement and most definitely the only phone that alows you to call for an ambulance...and all this..with a simple touch of the screen. Now that's how hard people at Apple worked, in order to offer it's customers the same phone with ten years old features but make it seem like a new, magic and amazing phone at the same time.

the comment at the end of the article and uncalled for and unfounded. If anything, in my experience working with a carrier, the elderly were the best at paying their bills on time. The 20 and 30 somethings were the constantly delinquent people. Whatever research may suggest otherwise is not based on any facts.

I think the last part of the last paragraph, is in fact saying that the elderly pay on time... What carrier did you say you work for? Attention to details...
