Top 10 Best Tablets To Buy in 2022

Settling on business tablet Which iPhone or iPhones should you buy in 2022? I mean, Apple releases new iPhones every year. And, while going for the latest model should be the right move, the latest iPhone isn’t always the best for your needs and budget. In this post we look at 10 iPhones that will give you value for money in 2022.

The idea is to help you pick a phone that enjoys software support, has a decent camera, reliable battery and brilliant Display. Remember, a great deal is one that guarantees value for money!

If you are coming from Android and wondering if switching to iOS is a good idea, the simple answer is that you can’t go wrong with an iPhone.

Not convinced yet? Below are the 5 main reasons why iPhones are just better:

  • Ease of Use: The iPhone user interface is the simplest you can get in a phone. Everything you want is readily accessible. And, the user interface is standard across all iPhones. Meaning there is no learning curve when you upgrade or change devices. The iPhone’s streamlined experience is the main reason millions love the Phone.
  • Better Performance: Since Apple makes both the A chip and the iOS, you can expect all iPhones to work as expected. The A chip isn’t just ahead of the rest, it’s is designed to work exclusively with iOS. Result? A phone that’s faster than the competition.
  • Video Quality: If you are to buy a phone specifically for videos, there is no comparison‚Ķgo for an iPhone. The lenses in iPhones work so well with the camera software to give class leading videos. The picture quality is also the closest to real-life you can get from a smartphone.
  • Security: iPhone is secure because they control what apps you can install unlike Android. That explains why over 90% of smartphone malate target Android. Since Apple App Store maintains a strict quality control, you can be sure that what you install on your iPhone won’t mess up the phone.
  • Resale Value: Simply put, iPhones hold their value. Your 7-year iPhone can still fetch a good price compared to a new Android Phone. Why? Because of the Build Quality and Unmatched Software support. Let’s just say the iPhone was built to last a decade and Apple does their best to support the phone with software updates. For instance, the over 6 years old iPhone 6s Plus got iOS 15.

Now that you know why getting an iPhone is not a waste of money, let’s jump to the list.

iPhone 6s Plus is a 2015 phone that’s officially upgradeable to iOS 15.3. That’s 7 years of official Apple updates. In other words, iPhone 6s Plus runs the same OS as iPhone 13. Remember, never go for an iPhone that’s no longer receives software support from Apple; they are just unreliable.

It’s true that iPhone 6s Plus doesn’t boast of modern hardware as the 2021 models. However, the specs are still good enough to get you going. For instance, you get a brilliant Full HD IPS Screen and rear camera that can shoot 4K videos.

Whereas the RAM is limited to 2GB, Apple’s optimization makes the phone smooth to operate. You also have up to 128GB storage, which is a standard even today. Last but not least, iPhone 6s Plus is among the last iPhones to have a 3.5mm audio jack.
