Upgrading your iPhone? Think Again

Upgrading your iPhone? Think Again

You should wait a few weeks before buying a new iPhone if you have any plans to do so. We anticipate that Apple will introduce its new iPhone 14 series during the event it has scheduled on September 7th. As Apple rearranges its inventory and retires outdated phones, we anticipate pricing changes for current models in addition to the announcement of new iPhones. Although we are unsure of Apple's exact plans, history suggests that you are best off waiting to see what the company unveils. Here are several reasons why this is the worst time to purchase an iPhone based on what we anticipate from the September 7 event.

iPhone 12 and 13 prices are going to drop!

Apple maintained the iPhone 11, iPhone 12, and iPhone 12 Mini in its range and reduced their pricing when it unveiled the iPhone 13 in September. If Apple adopts a similar approach in 2022, we anticipate that it will continue to offer the iPhone 12, iPhone 13 Mini, and iPhone 13 at discounted pricing. Even if you don't want to purchase the most recent iPhone, you should wait until Apple's event because current and somewhat older models will probably see price reductions.

What we know about the iPhone 14 so far

Waiting to see if the iPhone 14 offers any significant upgrades is advised for anyone currently considering buying an iPhone 13. Apple hasn't made any official announcements about its new phones as of yet, but on September 7 everything will be made public. If you've been following the rumors, you're aware that Apple may release two different iPhone 14 models: a smaller "iPhone 14" and a larger "iPhone 14 Max" with a 6.7-inch screen. Apple may also unveil the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, according to rumors, but the iPhone 14 Mini is not anticipated.

According to rumors, both the basic iPhone 14 and the larger iPhone 14 Max will feature the same A15 CPUs as the current iPhone 13 models. The new A16 CPU will only be available for the iPhone 14 Pro series. The majority of the design improvements are also anticipated for the iPhone 14 Pro variants. It appears that Apple will eliminate the notch in the iPhone 14 Pro series in favor of a pill-shaped cutout that will house the Face ID and selfie camera.

With a new 48-megapixel sensor for the main camera as opposed to the present 12-megapixel sensor in the iPhone 13 cameras, the cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro series are also anticipated to see a significant upgrade. Better low-light camera performance may be the biggest benefit of a bigger sensor. If the reports are accurate, owners of iPhone 13 models may not have many reasons to upgrade to the iPhone 14 series. However, anyone considering purchasing an iPhone today should hold off until they know whether or not these additions make the next model a superior investment.
