There are some great iPhone models available, such as the flagship iPhone 11 Pro, the more affordable iPhone 11, and the compact iPhone SE (2020), but if you’re thinking of upgrading to any of them, you might want to hold off.
There are a few reasons for that which we’ll get into below, but combined they mean that right now is basically the worst possible time to buy a new iPhone.
So unless your current phone is completely broken, it’s really worth waiting a little longer, even if your current handset is old, worn out, or you’re just bored of it and due an upgrade. In fact, it’s worth waiting a while even if you don’t want the upcoming iPhone 12. Below we’ll explain why.
Buying a current iPhone model rather than one of the iPhone 12 range also means you’ll miss out on new tech, features, and improvements.
While we don’t know for sure what the iPhone 12 range will feature, it’s certainly going to have a faster, more powerful chipset, and rumors point to other upgrades, such as the addition of a LiDAR scanner on some models, which could improve the camera’s portrait mode and augmented reality abilities.
Plus, the iPhone 12 range is almost certainly going to support 5G, which no current iPhone does, and which will make the new phones much more future-proofed.
