With the iPhone 13 launching almost a year ago, and the iPhone 14 being on its way, iPhone lovers need to tackle a tricky decision – buy what is clearly one of the best phones on the market or wait a couple of more months to see whether or not the new iPhone 14 will be worth the wait.
There’s no doubt that the iPhone 13 is hugely popular, but that doesn’t stop Apple from working better and harder on the iPhone 14 already. Given a surprising number of leaks, people already got somewhat of an idea of what’s to come. The question is, is it worth the switch?
Generally, there are a lot of reasons why so many people love and are loyal to Apple more so than they are to Android, some of the main ones being:
- Social recognition and status
- Superior quality
- Branding done right
The decision on whether or not the new iPhone 14 is worth the wait depends very much if not solely on the state of one’s current phone as well as how much they are willing to spend on a phone. Some people only care that they have a phone that works okay, while others like to get into the nuts and bolts of the iPhone’s design.
Right now, if you were to ask an expert about getting an iPhone 13, you are likely to get a response that you should wait and see what upgrades will come with the next iPhone 14. However, to be fair, not every feature or upgrade can change your smartphone experience.
Reasons to Opt for iPhone 13
The iPhone 13 launched almost a year ago with four different models to choose from. Currently, the best iPhone one can get is the iPhone 13 Pro Max. However, at the same time, it is the most expensive one, with a starting price of $1099.
In this case it is essential to know about dynamic pricing, because that is something Apple will apply to all of their products. The price listed here is for the US customers without any additional plans. With dynamic pricing, the cost will be adapted to different markets either because of the cost of shipping and moving, or simply to increase the company’s profit.
The iPhone 13 Pro comes with similar features and a smaller display, with a starting price of $999. The iPhone 13 will appeal to most users with its mixture of features as well as value. The starting point for iPhone 13 is $799. Last but not least, the iPhone 13 mini’s starting price is $699.
Generally, the majority of people know how great iPhones are when it comes to performance, which is why this is the first main reason why you should opt for iPhone 13. This smartphone comes with Apple’s, for now, latest and greatest A15 Bionic chip. iPhone 13 can handle any day-to-day task while simultaneously delivering top-notch gaming performance without any jitters.
The second reason why you should consider buying the iPhone 13 is due to the camera quality. This phone comes with a 12 MP camera, wide and an ultrawide camera. Moreover, the iPhone 13 comes with cinematic mode and photographic style, which is perfect for all people who like capturing moments.
Finally, the last reason why you should consider buying an iPhone 13 is the long-lasting battery life. With things going a little south with last year’s iPhone 12, Apple made sure to not repeat this mistake again. If battery life is important to you, you will not make a mistake with the iPhone 13.
Reasons to Wait For the New iPhone 14
The first thing you look for when buying a new phone is the price, so you can know if that’s something you can afford to buy or should you just move along. Luckily, the iPhone 14 is expected to be offered with the same launch price as that of the iPhone 13, which was $799. However, we do not know that for certain, which is why you should follow the news in the upcoming weeks to see the official final price.
Moreover, the new iPhone 14 series is expected to be powered by the A16 Bionic chipset which is an upgrade from last year. As to our knowledge, the iPhone 14 Pro models will have it, not the iPhone 14 and 14 Max.
Furthermore, there is a rumor going around that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could finally get a 48 MP high-resolution main camera, along with ultra-wide units and the additional telephoto. If this is the case, perhaps photo lovers should postpone their shopping until this rumor is confirmed or denied.
At last, the iPhone 13 series has been excellent when it comes to battery backup. With that being said, we expect and guess that the next generation of the iPhone will be even more power efficient than the current one, as there is always room for improvements.
