With seven iPhone models available through Apple, from the new iPhone 12 to the more than two-year-old iPhone XR, there are plenty of options out there for Apple fans.
Like most purchasing decisions, which model is right for you largely depends on your needs when it comes to pricing, size options, and features. In addition to helping you choose the right iPhone model for you, we’ll also tell you which models you should stay away from.
For most people, we highly recommend the iPhone 12, which costs a relatively reasonable $799 but still includes the most important new tech on any phone: the latest processor. The 2020 iPhone SE is the cheapest iPhone you can buy at $400, and it’s also one of the smallest. So, if portability and affordability are a top priority, it’s probably the best choice. It has the same processor as the iPhone 11 family, although its design is dated reminiscent of the iPhone 8.
Apple still sells the iPhone 11, and it’s a tempting purchase with its new price tag. It now costs $599, and for that price you’re not missing out on much. The iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are still great buys if you can find good deals that knock at least over $100 off.
The iPhone XR from 2018 costs $499, making it another budget-friendly option for those who want a much bigger screen, longer battery life, and Face ID. If you don’t care about those features, the iPhone SE is a better investment since it comes with a more recent Apple processor for $100 less.
