One fan was surprised at KKW’s lack of next-thing-now consumerism in a recent post with one of her kids, noting that Kardashian wasn’t using the latest iPhone. It seems Kim is happy with her iPhone 8 — which is a couple of iPhone generations ago.
We’re pretty sure, first of all, that this is not her only phone.
