if you approach something with the attitude that you won’t
be able to learn it, chances are you won’t.
brother, who is 2 years younger than me avoided the iPhone
for years, until one day I slapped him upside the head, sat
him down, gave him my old iPhone 6 and taught him how to use
it. He loves it now and regrets waiting so long. Amusingly
enough, the gesture he found the most difficult to master
was the magic tap to answer and hang up phone calls.

Not entirely true.
Yes, entirely true. I didn't say, "It's just as easy as it
ever was." It isn't as easy for me as it was when I was in my
youth, but it is mighty far from impossible.
I get that different things are more or less difficult for
different people. I also know that accessibility across the
spectrum has improved, radically, over the last 30 years.
None of us get our personal choice of what hardware, software,
or interfaces (physical versus virtual buttons, as but one
example), are available. And there are times when certain
changes will make it more difficult for a given individual,
not less so, but that cannot be escaped as a general thing
with change, no matter what the direction.
To quote the Rolling Stones, "You can't always get what you
want, but you get what you need." (And "getting what you
want" has been awfully common in accessibiity, too, in recent
years). Sometimes, though, it's you that has to do the
adjusting whether you like it or not.
