iPhone 14 — Buy now or wait for 15‪?‬ Rene Ritchie

    • News

🔥 Go to https://bit.ly/37su9oh and use code reneritchie to get a free 100 pack of blades when you purchase your Henson Razor — Make sure you add both the 100 blade pack and the razor for the discount to apply!




My always advice is: Wait as long as you possible can to upgrade, then buy the best possible upgrade you can, and keep it as long as you can — enjoy the hell out of it — because there’ll always be something new and something next




And that’s truer now for phones than it’s ever been before. Because phones just aren’t rapidly changing, always experimenting, bleeding edge nerd-bait sci-fi any more. They’re fully matured and mainstream.




Just look at all the hotter-than-hot takes that have been pouring in lately, from the Galaxy Fold 4 to the iPhone 14 to the Pixel 7 — spec bumps and a few new features aside, this years models are nigh-indistinguishable from last year’s. I mean, forget S-models, they’re basically being called rev B hardware.




The designs have reached a point where they’re platonic, if not always iconic. Like a Porsche or Rolex or Mont Blanc… or, you get the idea.




So... should you upgrade now or should you wait for next?
