Which is easier to use for a new dnd player? Component Pouch or Arcane Focus?

I just got into dnd and am creating my first character (a half elf wizard). I am at the starting equipment section, and can’t chose between the component pouch or arcane focus. I have looked up the pros and cons of both, but I am still indecisive. Is one easier to use than the other? This game is already pretty confusing so if one is easier to use it’d be very helpful to know. Have a wonderful day!
