Iphones are arguably the most popular smartphones right now. Other companies like Samsung and Google might have thrown shade against iPhones through their ads in the past few years, but there is no denying that every time Apple releases a new iPhone model there is always a line camping out days before the release date. That is how in-demand iPhones are.
iPhones are not cheap. In fact, the last few models sporting the new design cost at least $1,000. iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus, the last models that come in the previous design language is not cheap either. If you’re planning to buy an iPhone, it’s best to make the most out of your money to make sure your purchase does not go to waste.
Here are some iPhone buying tips and tricks that might come in handy when you’re planning on purchasing one:
The best time to buy is after the announcement
For most mobile phones, it may be recommended to wait a few months or a year after its release before purchasing one in hopes of a reduced price. That is not the case for iPhones, as they barely vary in price despite release of newer models. The best time to buy iPhones is just after announcement of new models, as these are the time you can get great deals for the new models, or the older one that will eventually be phased out will have rollbacks in their prices.
Consider your storage needs
You might be tempted to shell out a lot of money to get the highest storage possible in your iPhone, but most of the time these storage capacity goes to waste. Consider your storage usage from your previous phones and buy an iPhone with a storage capacity realistic to what you actually use. You will find the smaller storage iPhones are significantly cheaper.
