Reasons to Stay With The iPhone 5/5S
With the brand new iPhone on the horizon, you're probably thinking it's a great idea to go ahead and switch over, right? What's more awesome than a new phone? You'll be all the way up to date and have shiny new features to chat with your friends about. But stop and think for a moment -- there are still plenty of reasons you don't want to swap over to the iPhone 6. Before you pony up, take a moment to think about waiting. You might be glad you did!
1. You're going to save money.
If you adopt a new iPhone right off the bat, consider how much money it's going to be. The newer models are always vastly more expensive than older ones, and the iPhone 5S is still very much a viable solution if you're looking for a smartphone. If you're using the latest iOS and have taken care of your device, you should still be sitting pretty when it comes to using apps and games. So unless your prime directive is keeping up with the Joneses, there's really no viable reason to spend all of that extra money. Unless your pockets are lined with gold, and in that case, just go ahead and spend away.
2. Wait out the inevitable issues.
With every new product launch comes a bevy of technical problems that are easily solved (for the most part), but you've also got to deal with them for the time being. Whether it's battery issues, incompatibility problems, or random resprings, you don't know what you're going to have to put up with, so wait it out and see what happens before committing. It's better than not having a phone for a couple weeks while you work out repair arrangements, isn't it?
3. You know there's going to be a better version not long after the release.
It's Apple -- shortly after the release of every "core" number, there's an updated version like the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5S. You could go ahead and take the plunge immediately so you can say you've got the latest and greatest equipment, or you could be ready for the inevitable changes that will be made, UI improvements, or even tweaks that you'll be wishing you had in the first place. And it's never that long of a while to wait. Why not go ahead and hold off for a bit?
