Apple dominates the phone market, with over 730 million people using iPhones worldwide. As every September brings us the latest iPhone iteration, there’s always a range of models available to choose from. Do you want the latest and the greatest model? Or are you looking for the previous generation iPhone XR model to better meet your budget? Here is a look at the current models on the market and which one might be best for you.
The iPhone 11 camera is the most significant update from the iPhone XR. Upgrades include a new low-light night mode and 12-megapixel wide-angle lens for boosted photo opportunities. The battery life is also four hours longer than the XR. The surprising thing about this model is the price – it was sold for less than the iPhone XR was in 2018.
iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max
The iPhone 11 range makes up almost 70% of US iPhone sales, and with that name, you already expect great things from the Pro models. The body of both Pro phones is stainless steel, backed by a glass panel that is home to an extra 2X zoom 12-megapixel camera lens. While the battery life promises over 11 hours, the base model is 64GB, which seems a little too humble for the tech on these models, but you can upgrade up to 512GB storage. The Pro Max has a 6.5 inch OLED Super Retina XDR display, superior 4K filming capabilities, and a triple camera lens. What’s not to love?
The iPhone SE is the lower-priced cousin of the iPhone 11, which is perfect if you want most of the tech of the iPhone 11 in the body of an older generation model. The budget iPhone model is half the price of the iPhone 11 but still has the same A13 processor and the same wireless charging capabilities. The design recalls the iPhone 8, with one camera and a 4.7-inch display, but the speed of the SE makes it a significant upgrade on the former models.
The iPhone XR and iPhone 11 have a remarkably similar design, and both offer the same 6.1-inch screen. With Apple keeping sales of the iPhone XR on for another year, you’ll still benefit from an excellent quality phone with base models starting from 64GB. iOS 13 still runs remarkably smoothly, and the A12 processor is only one generation behind the new A13 models. With better screen resolution than the SE, it might be a better investment. Or, you can sell your iPhone XR and upgrade to the newer models for your next contract.
Do you want to splash out on the iPhone 11 Pro Max or enjoy the value for money with the iPhone SE or iPhone XR? With rumours circulating that the iPhone 12 is delayed, you’ll likely get to enjoy these models for longer than usual in 2020.
