Treat yourself, Tom.
The 43-year-old Florida man is contemplating an overdue smartphone upgrade for his birthday after it was revealed on Saturday that Brady is still using an antiquated iPhone 6 plus.
“Thank you for the bday wishes!! Might treat myself to a new iPhone this year…,” the Buccaneers quarterback wrote cheekily in a quote-tweet of the NFL’s birthday wishes.
Brady, who recently joined the Tampa-based squad after two decades in New England, is entering his 21st year in the league. He inked a two-year, fully guaranteed $50 million contract in March and has an estimated net worth of $200 million.
“New beginnings in year 21. Happy 43rd birthday, @TomBrady!” the NFL’s official Twitter account wrote with a goat emoji on Monday.
The initial revelation came after Brady posted a photo of his car’s screen that showed a sweltering 99-degree temperature, as well as the device to which it was tethered. The iPhone 6 and 6 plus, which were released in September 2015, are five generations behind the current models and lack many useful features such as Face ID, haptic feedback, water resistance and multiple lenses.
Acquiring a newer model certainly isn’t cost-prohibitive for an athlete worth in excess of nine figures, which led some on social media to speculate if the model’s number carries sentimental significance for the six-time Super Bowl champion.
Aside from possibly indulging in newer tech, Brady will ring in 43 with his children and supermodel wife, Gisele Bündchen, who posted a sentimental birthday wish on Instagram on Monday.
“Happy birthday love of my life!” the 40-year-old mother of two wrote. “You are the best dad , the best partner and the best friend. We are so lucky to have you in our lives and we are looking forward to all the adventures ahead. We love you so much!”
