No harm getting one generation older iPhones. iPhone 6s will support iOS 14. No one can ask more than such software support. The performance might be disputed.

Personally I feel getting iPhone 11 when the 12 comes out is not a bad idea. The 11 and 11 P/PM are quite overkill already in terms of performance and hardware. I doubt it will age badly in just one year.

I usu buy iphones approx 1 year after its initial release. Reckoned tt by then they would have fixed most bugs. First iphone was iphone 4, then iphone 6 and now iphone xr.

It depends.

They may keep the previous gen or they make Chuck the last gen and revive 2 gens ago

iPhone XS now also much cheaper. Still a very powerful phone IMO. Minus the wide angle camera.

Apple Store no longer offers 2018 iPhones XS / XS max right?

They are discontinued. Can only buy from 3rd party retailers.

Ditto here.
In fact, I'm currently using still my iPhone X and AW, and have been for the last 2 years.
Guess this year will be time to change .. perhaps to IP11 & AW5

Although if the leaks are accurate, the smallest IP12 looks appealing due to the small and IP SE metallic form factor
