With the launch of the new iPhone around the corner, many are wondering when is the right time to buy a new iPhone, which we’ll answer here.
If you want to buy a new iPhone but are undecided, this article will help you find the solution. The speculated iPhone 14 range from Apple is most certainly coming out in September. The majority of the time, Apple unveils its newest iPhone models in September and makes them available soon after. However, there are valid reasons to wait before splashing out on an iPhone 13 or 13 Pro, even if you don’t care about owning the most recent iPhone.
When is the right time to buy a new iPhone?
If Apple continues along its current path, the iPhone 14 will most likely be unveiled alongside iOS 16 in the first half of September and released in the second. For instance, the iPhone 13 was unveiled by Apple on September 14 and went on sale on September 24. For the iPhone 11, iPhone 8, and prior models, the timing was identical.
Nevertheless, there are a few outliers. The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro were released in October 2020, and the 12 Mini and 12 Pro Max followed in November. Also introduced in November 2017 was the iPhone X. According to reports, the iPhone 14 Pro model may sport an improved 48-megapixel main camera and a new, notch-free design. Apple may possibly introduce a new, larger version of the iPhone 14 standard.
Older iPhones might get cheaper
When releasing new iPhone models, Apple typically lowers the price of the prior versions, as it did with the iPhone 12 last year. After the iPhone 13 was revealed, the price of the 64GB iPhone 12 was reduced from $800 to $700. In contrast, the price of the iPhone 11 fell to $500 in 2021.
For those who would prefer to save money on an older model, the release of the iPhone this year maybe even better. Apple is likely to keep the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini in its portfolio and lower the Mini’s price to $500 if it continues the trend from 2021. It’s important to note this since it would make the iPhone 12 Mini one of the least expensive 5G iPhones on the market. Yes, the iPhone SE, which costs $430 and supports 5G, is less expensive. In contrast to Apple’s other phones, it has a significantly smaller screen, only has one main camera (most current phones have two), and does not include Face ID.
Having 5G on your next phone is not required, but it is advisable if you intend to keep it for the next three years as those networks continue to advance. Read more about whether purchasing a non-5G phone in 2022 is acceptable here.
If you’re in immediate need of an iPhone
Not everybody can afford to wait. Consider purchasing a refurbished iPhone if you urgently require a new iPhone and want to save some money. On its website, Apple sells reconditioned products with a year’s worth of warranty. These previously owned gadgets, according to Apple, are examined, cleaned, and offer the option to prolong customer support with an AppleCare membership.
Apple iPhone 14 features
The iPhone 14 series is expected to include 5G support, A 16 or A 16 Bionic chipset, and a 48MP main camera capable of 8K video recording. The iPhone 14 family will consist of iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and iPhone 14 Max, and these features will be included in these new iPhone models.
How much will the iPhone 14 cost?
There are reports circulating that the new iPhone range will cost more than the older models. In response to Hon Hai Technology Group, Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted that he anticipated a 15% price increase.
Hon Hai/Foxconn is one of the winners of the increased ASP of iPhone 14 series. I estimated iPhone 14 series ASP would increase by about 15% (vs. iPhone 13 series ASP) to $1,000-1,050 (USD) due to two iPhone 14 Pro's price hikes & higher shipment proportion. https://t.co/UgiW0kom4F
