In easy to understand non guitar technical language please

I'm really interested in what it all means

"The Edge confirms his switch from amps to Universal Audio's UAFX pedals for U2's Las Vegas Sphere shows: "It's a case of high-level complexity to make it sound simple"
 
Essentially, guitar players usually like specific amps (think Marshall, Fender, Peavey) for their sound and then use effects pedals in addition. It appears as though The Edge is using strictly analog effects now. Not very uncommon as I have connected my effects pedal to my soundboard before when playing live. That way all volume controls including vocals all run through your PA.
