Apple has a good catalogue of iPhone on the market, but we always ask ourselves the typical question of whether to buy it now that iPhone is more convenient. The answer is clear, buy the one you like best and the one you can afford .
Apple does an excellent manual marketing , when they launch a new product, we have the need to update ours (in most cases). We don’t know why, but we want it.
In each new version they offer us a percentage of performance with the penultimate iPhone so that the increase is more considerable . Play with the data on battery performance without giving technical specifications for a simple reason.
It is easier to convince a user who has skipped a generation or another that he has just bought the terminal after a few months. I’m not saying it’s wrong, on the contrary, they know how to apply these techniques very well, as I said before, by hand.
Dependence on a new iPhone
We tried to convince ourselves of the benefits of upgrading our terminal, which we barely enjoyed, especially by shielding it with a screen saver and several sleeves during its lifetime.
All this to get the maximum profit when selling it to buy a new iPhone. Of course, also to enjoy an unpolluted terminal when we have made an investment that has not really been cheap.
If we don’t have it in the first weeks of release or the same day, the desperation begins and we even notice that our current iPhone is already in the last few weeks. It seems that the first 15 days are crucial to make the decision or to have it at home. Nothing to do with reality.
Every novelty seems spectacular to us , even if it’s Animoji (which it is), but it’s already starting to be in our orbit of positive things to make the leap, a novelty that our current phone doesn’t have and for an inexplicable reason, we need it.
Of course, there are many more reasons to want to change an iPhone , from the camera or performance for existing tasks to the new color. It doesn’t matter, every client has their own reasons, but these are just a few examples to help you understand, and you will surely feel identified.
The tables are turning
Now that we have discovered that iPhones with a degraded battery, Apple applied a programmed obsolescence . Anyone who doesn’t want to see it that way is blind. Many customers have realised that it is not really worth their while to update their phone, as it works again after being replaced for 29 euros .
So that dependency has started to disappear, we have seen it with the latest sales of the new devices. Be careful, it is not that they are a failure or much less, only that they are not reaching the planned objective, while other terminals like the 6s or 7 are having very positive sales , especially in the Christmas campaign.
Now we users want a combination of a spectacular phone with a tighter price, we do not need more. We no longer pursue the latest novelty. We already know the performance problem and how to solve it, so for normal use, we don’t need to have the latest high-end, because the current ones also offer extraordinary performance at an extraordinary price .
I’m already waiting for the next generation of iPhone
Another of the answers we usually see every day when November or December comes, is: “I’m waiting for the next generation.” The main reason for this, is usually because “will come improved “x” novelty”.
Of course it is, and the next generation too, and the other… Apple is not a NGO , it is a company that wants to generate profits, so they usually release new versions of their devices. Luckily, the general rule is one year and not every six months (we have had exceptions).
No need to wait for a new generation, enjoy your device , get the most out of it and squeeze all its goodness. Of course, if it’s September, we should wait there. Firstly, because the current iPhone will be lowered in price , secondly because you might be interested in some “revolutionary” new features of the new iPhone.
But with several months to go or when the current one has barely been launched, it doesn’t make any sense, as David Hebrero says, we never know what tomorrow will bring. So if you have a chance and you feel like buying a new iPhone , go for it. Don’t give it any more thought.
Which iPhone is better?
The one that meets your expectations and does not represent a significant financial burden for you . It’s that simple. That’s all there is to it. Apple puts supported iPhones on its website that will perform well with current and future operating systems.
Currently, we have a variety of iPhone for all audiences, from those who want a compact phone with good performance to those looking for a 5.5″ phablet. All of them with different prices, according to the needs and pockets of each one.
As a recommendation, always try to buy the latest iPhone available, that you like and that you can afford . Simply because if you have so many doubts, it is understood that it will be your main phone for a long time, so it will be better one that can support you for a long time.
One thing is clear, if Apple sells an iPhone (whatever it is), it is because is optimized to provide a positive user experience. Apple doesn’t risk launching a device that won’t work moderately well with the operating system that it touches in that year and in the next versions. Before that, it simply does not allow you to upgrade the device.
That Apple has done the wrong thing by hiding relevant information about iPhone performance from the customer is another matter, for which they have already apologised and are receiving several demands internationally.
So you know, buy the iPhone you want , enjoy it and get all the benefits you can.
