The iPhone 13 could be coming in September, but does it make sense to wait for Apple’s newest iPhone or buy last year’s iPhone 12? Here’s how to tell what’s the best decision for you.
Apple’s iPhone 12 has been out since last fall, and the new iPhone, said to be called the iPhone 13, could be released in September for Apple’s next event. With the iPhone 13 possibly coming in just a few months, does it make sense to buy an iPhone 12 now? Depending on your personal feature preferences and budget, the iPhone 12 or upcoming iPhone SE 3 may be a good option. But with the next version coming so soon, things get a bit more complicated.
So if you’re on the fence as to which path to take, that’s understandable. But don’t stress. This guide spells out when you should go in one direction or the other. This way you can feel confident you’ve made the right call.
Using an old, outdated iPhone?
One of the best reasons to snap up a new phone is because your current one is hopelessly outdated. If you own an iPhone 11, upgrading to an iPhone 12 now probably isn’t worth it. You won’t see enough of a difference in performance and features, especially compared with what will likely come with the iPhone 13. However, if you can hang on until September your patience will have a chance of being rewarded.
The calculus is very different for owners of older iPhones like the iPhone X series. Going for the iPhone 12 gives you an advanced A14 Bionic CPU, plus an OLED screen. Just those two enhancements represent a massive upgrade over phones from just a few years ago. ReadMore
