You would have to have been living under a rock in the last 5 years to not hear the media blitz when a new iPhone comes out. Well it tis that time of year again, and we have a new iPhone set to come up on a week or two. How do you know if you should buy this one or wait?
Here’s a great simple tip for buying an iPhone:
Even numbers are complete makeovers, i.e., iPhone 4, 6, 8, etc.
Odd numbers are similar appearing to the last model but have some minor improvements, i.e., IPhone 5, 7, etc.
If you have the iPhone 6+ now, I would wait until next year when the iPhone 8 is set to come out and rumors have waterproofing as part of the upgrade.
iPhones will almost always have an S model that will follow within a year. iPhone 5, then the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, then iPhone 6S, etc.
Rumor is that while Apple is releasing an iPhone 7 this year, that next year, they may jump right into an iPhone 8.
The 7 has taken away the radio input jack for headphones and either you use the lightning plug, buy an adapter, or use bluetooth headphones. I’ve read a rumor that there are SOME water resistant features to this iPhone and with it’s presentation coming today (preorders) and then availability on September 16, we will find out soon enough.
So am I buying a new phone this year or waiting? I currently have an iPhone 5S and yes, I am updating to the 7. I’m in a need of a new phone and also will be switching carriers and for that reason, we are going to go ahead and get a 7.
Apple has officially announced it and added a page on their website for the new iPhone:
