On the day that technology fans were poring over details of the new iPhone 6, a study revealed many adults are still pining for cassettes and photos taken with film cameras.
A list of 90s nostalgia showed that many people miss more simple gadgets, terrestrial television and the days of thank you notes.
Making cassette recordings of the radio charts came top of the poll, with 40 per cent of adults saying they missed their mix tapes, followed by having pen pals and watching the now defunct Top of the Pops.
Buying singles on cassette or vinyl also made the list, along with waiting for film photos to be developed, Saturday night television with the family and renting videos from the local shop.
Many people surveyed also longed for the time before mobile phones, when you made plans that could not be changed at the last minute with a quick text or call.

1990s nostalgia: The top 10
1/9 Number 10: Not being able to change plans using mobiles
Don't you miss the time when plans never changed at the last minute because they were made on a landline? 22 per cent of people agree with you.
2/9 Number 9: Renting videos from the local shop
A quarter of people surveyed said they missed renting videos from the local shop. So much more of an event than going on Netflix.
3/9 Number 8: 90s toys
Troll dolls, Beanie Babies and friendship bracelets were among the toys that 27 per cent of people want back.
4/9 Number 7: Saturday night television

5/9 Number 6: Waiting for photos to be developed
We're taking more photos than ever but the hundreds of pictures are rarely printed. Almost 30 per cent of people missed waiting for their holiday snaps and making an album.
6/9 Number 5: Hand-written thank you notes
Almost a third of people miss sending and receiving hand-written thank you notes.
7/9 Number 4: Buying singles on cassette or vinyl
Records might be fashionable again but the humble cassette never made a comeback. 32 per cent of people missed buying singles on cassettes or vinyl.
8/9 Number 3: Top of the Pops
Cancelled in 2006, TOTP was an institution for more than 40 years. 34 per cent of people would still rather watch it than trawl YouTube for music videos.
9/9 Number 2: Having pen pals
Pen pals from school could last for years, especially with the time it took to actually write and post letters. 35 of people think email just isn't the same.
The research, using a survey of 2,000 people, revealed that many parents wish their children could have the experiences they did two decades ago.
Disney commissioned the study to launch a new children’s television show called Girl Meets World.Reuse content
