Video Of Elderly People Being Taught How To Use iPhones Is Breaking People's Hearts

A viral video of elderly people being taught how to use iPhones is melting people's hearts. Check it out here:

In the clip, shared on TikTok, a group of senior citizens can be seen receiving guidance on how to use the ubiquitous devices – which many of us would struggle to imagine life without, despite their relatively recent emergence.

The video was shared along with text that read, 'nothing more heartbreaking and simultaneously heartwarming than watching old people learn how to use a phone' – and to be fair, it's hard to think of a better example of something so simultaneously heartbreaking/warming.

The video has gone viral, amassing 10.5 million views and 19,000 comments, and the general vibe was 'good on ya, granddads'.

One person wrote: "This is awesome! Let's stop feeling sorry for elderly people."

Another said: "Shouldn't this be empowering though? Keep on learning no matter which stage of life you're in."

A third added: "I ran an iPhone workshop for old people at my old job. It's not sad. They love it! They're just excited to be able to FaceTime their grandkids."

Back around Christmas time, the internet had its collective heart warmed by an elderly couple that seemed oblivious to the fact they were sitting next to Drake.

Back on 1 December, the Canadian rapper went to watch the OKC Thunder vs Houston Rockets and found himself sitting beside an elderly couple who didn't seem to have a clue who he was.

The 35-year-old musician was sitting at the front of the Paycom Center with long-time friend Mark Robinson when a camera started to hone in on him.

Almost pretending not to see the camera at first, the 'God's Plan' singer looked over as fans began screaming – which was when the white-haired gent beside him started to take notice.

Looking up at the screens, the older man glanced at Drake and seemed to be confused.

All involved appeared to enjoy the interaction though... I suppose you're going to be in high spirits if you're sitting courtside for a b-ball game.

In fact, Drake enjoyed himself so much that he snapped a selfie with the couple and posted it on to Instagram, alongside the caption: "My new parents".

N'awww.
