ANYONE thinking of buying the iPhone 14 when it lands on September 16th might want to hold their horses.
That’s because the latest announcement left some fans disappointed that there weren’t more substantial updates over previous models.
Apart from that, there are no earth-shattering updates compared to the iPhone 13, the new Apple device
Here are three reasons you probably shouldn’t buy the latest iPhone.
Upgrades are minimal
If you have an iPhone 13, it’s almost certainly not worth upgrading.
While some expected the iPhone 14 updates to be more groundbreaking, many were disappointed to see nothing notably innovative in this release.
The camera, for example, is an area that’s most expected to receive a major update, but it hasn’t.
The iPhone 14’s main sensor is larger with larger pixels and a faster aperture, but otherwise remains the same as the iPhone 13.
Those who already own a fairly new iPhone could benefit if they hold out until the iPhone 15 arrives in 2023.

The design has changed
The iPhone 14 has seen some design changes from its predecessor that won’t appeal to all iPhone fans.
For one, the screen is now larger and slimmer, which should make the phone a little easier to grip with one hand, but won’t be to everyone’s liking.
The other big design change is the new pill-shaped cutout instead of the familiar notch, which takes up more screen real estate.
When money is tight
The fact is, smartphones are lasting longer these days.
Apple updates iPhones up to the iPhone 7 with its new iOS 16 software.
That means you get new features and security updates for phones that are years old.
The only thing that really suffers is the battery life.
But you can buy a battery replacement from Apple for $79/£79 – far cheaper than upgrading to a new iPhone.
If you’re short on cash, consider doing this instead.
Alternatively, mid-range or older phones are still good.
