When I reach year-old Athena around noon on a summer day, she sounds as if she just woke up. We chat a little about her favorite songs and TV shows, and I ask her what she likes to do with her friends. I have to check in every hour or every thirty minutes. Athena and her friends at her middle school in Houston, Texas, communicate using their phones more than they see each other in person.
Their favorite medium is Snapchat, a smartphone app that allows users to send pictures that quickly disappear. They make sure they keep up their Snapstreaks, which show how many days in a row they have Snapchatted with each other. I think we like our phones more than we like actual people. Born in and later, they grew up with cell phones, had an Instagram page before they started high school, and do not remember a time before the Internet.
The oldest members of iGen were early adolescents when the iPhone was introduced in and high school students when the iPad entered the scene in The i in the names of these devices stands for Internet, and the Internet was commercialized in If this generation is going to be named after anything, the iPhone just might be it: according to a fall marketing survey, two out of three US teens owned an iPhone, about as complete a market saturation as possible for a product. They are the first generation for whom Internet access has been constantly available, right there in their hands.
And yes, even if they are lower income: teens from disadvantaged backgrounds now spend just as much time online as those with more resources—another effect of smartphones. The average teen checks her phone more than eighty times a day. But technology is not the only change shaping this generation. The i in iGen represents the individualism its members take for granted, a broad trend that grounds their bedrock sense of equality as well as their rejection of traditional social rules.
They are obsessed with safety and fearful of their economic futures, and they have no patience for inequality based on gender, race, or sexual orientation. They are at the forefront of the worst mental health crisis in decades, with rates of teen depression and suicide skyrocketing since Teens are physically safer than ever, yet they are more mentally vulnerable.
One from the Least and Disappearing Generation- a Memoir of a Depression Era Kid
Back then I focused on how my own generation, Generation X, differed from Boomers more gender equality and more anxiety, among other things. As time went on, I found a broad array of generational differences in behaviors, attitudes, and personality traits that distinguished the Millennials, the generation born in the s and early s. That research culminated in my book Generation Me, updated in , a look at how the Millennials differed from their predecessors.
Most of the generational differences that defined GenX and the Millennials came along gradually, building to a crescendo only after a decade or two of steady change. I had grown accustomed to line graphs of trends that looked like hills slowly growing into peaks, with cultural change making its mark after a measured rollout that started with a few young people and swelled to many. All of a sudden, the line graphs looked like steep mountains—rapid drop-offs erased the gains of decades in just a few years; after years of gradual inclines or hollows, sheer cliffs suddenly brought traits to all-time highs.
In all of my analyses of generational data—some of it reaching back to the s—I had never seen anything like it. At first I wondered if these were random blips that would disappear after a year or two. As I dug into the data, a pattern emerged: many of the large changes began around or That was too late to be caused by the Great Recession, which officially lasted from to Then it occurred to me: —12 was exactly when the majority of Americans started to own cell phones that could access the Internet, popularly known as smartphones.
The product of this sudden shift is iGen. Such broad generational shifts have big implications. A whole new group of young people who act and think differently—even differently from their neighbors the Millennials—is emerging into young adulthood.
We all need to understand them, including friends and family looking out for them, businesses searching for new recruits, colleges and universities educating and guiding students, and marketers figuring out how to sell to them. Members of iGen also need to understand themselves as they explain to their elders and their slightly older peers how they approach the world and what makes them different.

Generational differences are larger and more broadly influential than ever. The biggest difference between the Millennials and their predecessors was in worldview, with more focus on the self and less on social rules thus the term Generation Me. The life experiences they have every day are radically different from those of their predecessors. The Birth Year Cutoffs The breakneck speed of technological change has created a surprisingly large gap between those born in the s and those who started life in the s.
I had to learn what it was and how to use it. When the iPhone was introduced just five years later in , all of that changed. Until recently, most of the generational patter focused on Millennials, sometimes defined as Americans born between and Yet this is a long span for a recent generation: Generation X, immediately before the Millennials, lasted only fourteen years, from to In the presidential election of , Hoover easily won the Republican nomination , despite having no elected-office experience. Hoover is the most recent cabinet secretary to be elected President of the United States, as well as one of only three Presidents along with William Howard Taft and Donald Trump elected without electoral experience or high military rank.
