The iPhone 13 a month later 


Anaiah Wright, staff report

If you’re anything like me, you probably stay up-to-date about modern technology and products/devices that are released. Apple, in specific, is the most popular worldwide, and especially amongst our age group.  The iPhone 13 (that comes in four different models) came out on September 24. 

As expected, a lot of tech specialists have reviewed all four variants of the phone and compared them to previous phones.  The most common claim is that it’s not worth it to upgrade if you have the iPhone 11-iPhone 12 Pro Max. Of course, this is opinion-based, but the difference isn’t great enough for an Upgrade to any of the four new phones, especially for someone paying in full and not with an upgrade. Of course, people can spend their money how they please but there have been fair warnings that it may not be the upgrade that a consumer would expect. 

Something that usually happens when a new iPhone is released is that all other models begin to slow down or lose battery life. There have been investigations as to why older phones malfunction during the upcoming of new models and it has been determined that it is an intentional attempt by Apple to get people to buy the newer phone.

The average American person probably wouldn’t go out and purchase the next big thing before putting some thought into it, but the decision-making process is more difficult when the mobile device you do have, eventually stops working. 

Regardless of the turnout of the iPhone 13 by the end of 2021, Apple will release the iPhone 14 in the fall of 2022. Hopefully, next time around they’ve changed the look so that consumers actually feel that there’s a change, and it’s not just a product being rushed for release.
