At dire risk of both not seeing the joke and 'protesteth too much' ...
Us old bastards have money, and (some) still have loyalty and are
hence low-effort sales.
So surely Apple can differentiate product-lines in order to keep each
of the various market-segments happy. Under the bonnet the devices
can be identical, but the packaging (both dies and colouring) needs
to look different, as do the default font and font-size in the
(As for the big red button for grannies, am I alone in hating
car-keys that have undifferentiated Lock and Unlock buttons, with
black print on a black background??).
