Apple’s iPhone line goes from $399 to $1,399. Here’s how to find which one is best for your needs and budget.
Update, September 2021: Apple has introduced four new iPhone 13 models, and stopped selling the iPhone XR, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. We’ll be updating this story to summarize our feelings on the new models once we’ve fully reviewed them in the near future. The earlier story, focusing on pre-iPhone 13 models, appears below.
Apple currently offers seven different models of iPhone, including four launched in just over the past year alone. There’s an iPhone that works with pretty much every major phone carrier in the world, and the iPhone-buying journey is a complicated one. That said, technology buffs and people looking for a solid phone can agree that the iPhone has a lot to offer, from a robust app ecosystem to powerful computing and a wealth of camera features (Portrait mode for the win!). Even an older iPhone is able to meet many people’s requirements.
