Before the iPhone 15 comes out, let's take a look at the iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and iPhone 12 to help you decide which one is right for you.

Here are the specs, design, price, and software updates to find the best fit for your needs and budget.

iPhone 13 vs iPhone 14

The iPhone 14, the latest and priciest model, is quite similar to the iPhone 13 in terms of specifications and design.

Priced at around Rs 80,000 in India, it received criticism for not offering significant upgrades compared to its predecessor.

If you have a slight budget constraint, it's more practical to choose the iPhone 13 as it provides a similar experience at a lower price point.

Moreover, popular e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Flipkart, and Croma often offer discounted prices for the iPhone 13, making it an attractive option for those seeking an upgrade.

While the iPhone 14 does come with the advantage of receiving software updates for a longer period compared to the iPhone 13, most users may not find this justifies the price difference.

Both models feature a boxy design, dual rear cameras, a 6.1-inch liquid retina display, and the powerful A15 Bionic chipset.

They are compact, comfortable to use with one hand, and offer a battery life that easily lasts a full day of work.

Should you buy the iPhone 12?

For those on a lower budget, the iPhone 12 is a viable choice.

Despite being released in 2020, it offers impressive specifications and design that closely resemble the iPhone 13 and 14.

It comes with a powerful A14 Bionic chipset, a dual rear camera system, a 6.1-inch display, and more.

The main drawback of the iPhone 12 is its shorter remaining years of software updates. Typically, Apple provides around 5-6 years of support from the time of launch.

If you tend to upgrade your phone every 2-3 years, the iPhone 12 should be suitable.

Its official price is Rs 59,900, but you can often find it at even lower prices on platforms like Flipkart and Amazon.
