Upgrading Your iPhone? Things to Consider
With the recent release of the iPhone 6, more consumers are considering an upgrade. This sixth-generation Apple smartphone is available world-wide through cellphone carriers and private services, but do you really need to upgrade?
The New Screen
There are a few distinct features the latest iPhone has versus your older generation iPhones. First, and most notable, is the screen. The iPhone 5 has a 4-inch display, which is larger than the past models. If you were to hold your screen up to the new model, you will instantly see the difference. For some consumers, the size of the screen doesn’t matter; therefore, an upgrade isn’t necessary. If, however, you need a larger screen for watching movies, playing games or just conducting business, you may want to upgrade to the latest model.
Also, the resolution has been improved on the iPhone 5. The new iPhone offers 1136 x 640 pixels, while the older generations only offered 940 x 640. If you have an iPhone 3GS, the upgrade is more than worth it, but for iPhone 4S users, it isn’t a big leap.
If you use your iPhone a lot for downloads and web browsing, you may find yourself intrigued by the new 4G that comes with the iPhone 5. This offers significantly faster wireless usage without depleting your phone’s battery. However, you need to live in an area that accesses the 4G network, otherwise a trade for your new iPhone may not be worth it.
Cameras and Photos
The iPhone 5 offers a rear-facing camera that is faster, but the resolution is all the same. If you don’t have the model with a front-facing camera, however, you may want to upgrade to the latest iPhone 5.
iOS 8 Software
Currently the iPhone 5 is running on iOS6. This new operating system offers additional benefits that even your older generation iPhone can enjoy. However, some of the iOS 6 features aren’t being offered to all generations. Also, iOS 6 has been reported to help the performance of the iPhone 5 by making it much faster than its predecessors.
You may have noticed how quickly your iPhone 3 or iPhone 4 loses battery life. This is because multiple applications continue to run in the background until you turn them off. The iPhone 5 has not fixed this issue – so you’ll still need to turn off applications to preserve your battery life. But, the newer, bigger screen on the iPhone 5 won’t deplete your battery.
As with any upgrade, you’re going to pay more than your previous generation. Luckily some Spring iPhone repair stores offer trade services that allow you to sell your previous generation iPhone and upgrade to a new generation. This can help save you hundreds of dollars and avoid having to renew a contract just to get the best price on an iPhone 5. In addition, when you trade or upgrade through a Spring repair service, you can revisit the store anytime you need an iPhone replacement or repair service.
Upgrading is entirely up to the consumer. If you have an iPhone 4, you may not see the need to make the switch. But, for users on the iPhone 3, the differences can be astounding and most definitely worth the switch over.
