New research from Teqno Logical suggests that UK adults are far more familiar with the latest technologies than previously thought.

Surveying 1268 people that were 55 and older about their awareness and usage of smartphones, more than 37% of them owned at least one smartphone. It also found out that 58.1% of UK adults have feature phones, and the number of those who didn’t own any mobile device at all was quite small – only 4.7%.
