New Delhi: Apple is yet to confirm anything about the much-awaited iPhone 14 series. However, rumors and leaks have revealed almost all the key features of the upcoming iPhone models. The iPhone 14 has been creating a lot of buzz and Apple enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting its launch. However, some people are left confused and are wondering whether the upcoming iPhone is worth waiting for or should they buy the iPhone 13 now? Well, Indian consumers have recently switched to the iOS ecosystem and the reason for this is the aggressive pricing of iPhone models in the country. Apple has partnered with a number of financial and e-commerce platforms in India to offer lower-cost iPhones.

Released last year, the iPhone 13 is now available at a significantly lower price. The 128GB storage capacity of the iPhone 13 was launched at a retail price of Rs 79,900. The 256GB and 512GB variants are priced at Rs 89,900 and Rs 1,09,900, respectively.

The iPhone 13 is available at a lower price on Amazon, Flipkart, iStore, and Croma, among other online retailers. For example, the iPhone model is available on Amazon for only Rs 60,000 including the exchange offer price.

Should you buy iPhone 13?

Buying the iPhone 13 at a discounted price completely makes sense. The model offers a longer battery life, better cameras as compared to the iPhone 12, latest software updates, and solid performance. The iPhone 13 has Apple’s latest A15 Bionic CPU, along with at least 128GB of storage and up to 512GB. The iPhone 13 is the first iPhone without 64GB of storage, a move Apple should have taken long ago.

The cameras of the iPhone 13 are also among the best in class, with one of the most advanced sensors. It sports a dual 12-megapixel sensor on the back, as well as an LED flash. The front camera sits in the front notch. Overall, iPhone 13 takes awesome photos in any lighting condition, including low light.

So, should you buy the iPhone 13 instead of waiting for iPhone 14? Well, the discounted price makes it a great deal. If you have an older iPhone, like the iPhone 7 or iPhone 8, now is the time to get an iPhone 13. And if you can wait for a few months, the price of iPhone 13 will go down further when Apple introduces the iPhone 14 later this year. This is because Apple follows this pattern every year. Let us remind you that Apple had dropped the price of iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 when it launched iPhone 13.

Should you wait for iPhone 14?

After considering the rumors and leaks online, the iPhone 14 will receive slight upgrade over the iPhone 13, be it the cameras, battery life or performance. If you can’t wait until September, when the iPhone 14 is said to be released, you can definitely go for the iPhone 13.

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 series will include iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Compared to their predecessors, all four models may come with A16 Bionic CPU, iOS 16, and better battery and camera performance.

The iPhone 14 is expected to cost $799 (around Rs 62,000). However, the phone may be significantly more expensive in India due to customs duties and GST. The iPhone 14 price is rumored to be similar to iPhone 13’s debut price of Rs 79,900 in India.
