Like if Apple releases iPhone 12, then they buy iPhone 11?

No Discernible difference one. Itís still a new iPhone to me since the previous one using is older than it. Software wise they all identical.

Speed canít tell the difference much unless you put them side by side. Even iPhone 6s still feels fluid.

So being practical, there is really no need to get the latest every time.

hi, i just bought an iphone se 2020 so far feels it is quite good, i am a long android user.

i heard from my boss that one generation earlier, you can save money and can last the updates longer.

if not, the updates once you update, it will make the phone slow

every single iphone get at least 5 iOS version and the lifespan of an iPhone is about 5 years. Same like iPhone 6s or SE (first gen) still get iOS 14 this year.

unless you can get iphone 11 at at least 20% cheaper in price, else it is not worth it to buy it while iphone 12 is out.

I use to buy every generation within 2 month of their launch, from 4 to 4S, 5, 5S, 6, 6S, 7 and 8. Then i got my XS and i just stopped there. There isn't much improvement ever since. I can still multitask as fast as current iphone 11 pro. Of cos you miss out on physical stuff like wide angle camera etc, but for the price diff i just feel it's not worth it. And yes, i can afford the new iphone without issue, but i just dun feel right about it. So now i will buy the previous generation. My current iphone XS is still as good as new, battery after more than 16 months stand at 93%, still run any games smoothly, still very fast in everyday usage.

Last used is iPhone 6 Plus bro
Once I changed to this iPhone 11.. I got many questions

Donít know if already solved in iPhone X threads anot

But importantly the brothers sisters here willling to reply ASAP
They wonít find u talk ask fei hua again which Iím truly appreciate
But of coz I try to read thread by one by one also

I didnít intend to change also coz iPhone 6 Plus still work perfect fine.

Just that got $230 discount plus internal more discount so just change to this iPhone 11

Tired Samsung S9 or 10 for awhile also.
Find it very hard to use
