As technology becomes advanced, people have to adapt to rapidly evolving technological changes. The world turns into a technological era. Boomers tend to continue with the flow of today's digital world. Despite the struggles and considerable differences, they adapt to the advanced world we have today with the new generation's help. Method: A phenomenological research design was utilized in this qualitative paper to understand the lived experiences and perception of baby boomers as technology advances, relative to the central question “What are the common difficulties that baby boomers encounter in line with the fast-paced technological development?” Data were gathered through a twenty-seven semi-structured interview and were analyzed using an inductive approach to theme development. Findings: Findings have shown the typical struggles of baby boomers’ regarding their adjustment during the fast-paced technological world we have today. Conclusion: Although baby boomers encounter technology conflicts due to lack of knowledge and generation gap, they always find a way to get through it. Recommendation: This paper recommends having more diverse baby boomers of different professions and nationalities to compare their differences to fill the study gaps. Furthermore, it is also possible to continue another article about the study but focusing on another aspect regarding their adjustment to the technological era, specifically about baby boomers’ expectations and adaptations.
