“iPhone11” debuted in 2019, followed by “iPhone12” and “iPhone13”. And during the Apple event on September 7, the latest “iPhone 14” should appear. The iPhone 11 is over two years old, but with the price dropping to $499 (72,800 yen in Japan) in 2021, it may still be a good option. It is very likely that the price of the current model will be reduced after the announcement of the new model, so it is recommended to refrain from buying the “iPhone” until the event of 7, but the iPhone 11 is quite a smartphone that can be purchased in this price range. Excellent.

Consider questions like: Are you reluctant to stick with an iPhone that seems a little dated, or do you think saving a few hundred dollars is more important than getting the latest smartphone? Do you have a commitment to 5G? If you’re on a tight budget, the iPhone 11 is a device to consider. Sure, there are some new features you have to give up, but you get all the standard iPhone features, like battery life on par with the iPhone 12, great dual cameras, mode night and a processor that quickly performs everyday tasks.
But if you have a little extra budget, ask yourself the following questions (this article assumes you’re an iPhone user):
5G connectivity: iPhone 11 not supported
What the iPhone 11 definitely lacks compared to the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 is 5G connectivity. The iPhone 11 only supports LTE networks. But if you’re not too keen on 5G just yet (5G isn’t available in many parts of the US anyway), the iPhone 11 should be fine. Apple first supported 5G with the iPhone 12. The ability to get a fast 5G connection depends on where you live, but the iPhone 12 will definitely last longer.

Display quality: You won’t get a 120Hz refresh rate on the iPhone 11
The iPhone 11’s bright LCD screen refreshes 60 times per second. So the refresh rate is 60Hz. iPhone 12 used an organic EL screen instead of liquid crystal, but the refresh rate was kept at 60Hz, like a general smartphone. In general, OLED screens are sharper, have higher contrast, and deeper blacks than LCD screens. If you often watch videos on your iPhone and want to enjoy the best images possible, the organic EL screen will be more satisfying. The iPhone 13 also has an organic EL panel and the refresh rate has been increased to 120Hz on the Pro model. The higher the refresh rate, the smoother the scrolling of apps and websites and the faster the screen.
Software Support: How Long Can You Get iOS Updates?
Apple’s latest operating system, iOS 15, is compatible with many older iPhones. The oldest is the iPhone 6S, released in 2015. By analogy, Apple will provide support for up to six years after launch. In other words, the iPhone 11 released in 2019 is likely to receive OS updates until 2025. This is safe material.

Durability and water resistance: How durable do you want your iPhone to be?
If you choose the iPhone 11, you won’t get the durability that iPhones sell for these days. For example, one of the big improvements in the iPhone 12 was the display hardware. The glass, made by Corning, which Apple calls the “Ceramic Shield”, is said to be harder than most metals. The resistance of the ceramic shield of the iPhone 12 has been proven in experiments, and in a drop test conducted by CNET, the material survived a drop from a height of 9 feet (iPhone 12 Mini drop (the same results were obtained in the test).Ceramic protective glass is also used in the screen of the iPhone 13.
So if you’re embarrassed about being sloppy or often drop your phone because your hands are slipping, it’s wise to buy an iPhone 13 or iPhone 12 (or buy a rugged iPhone case). But that doesn’t mean the iPhone 11 is fragile. The iPhone 11 also passed the US CNET drop test and water resistance test and won the “CNET Editors’ Choice Award”.
Price and Budget: How Much to Spend on an iPhone
As mentioned above, Apple sold the iPhone 11, which has been about two years since its release, for $300 (about 40,000 yen) cheaper than when it was first released, making it a great deal. option for those on a tight budget. However, as already mentioned, the price of the iPhone 11 could drop further if the iPhone, which will be the last model in 2022, is announced. Also, Apple usually lowers the price of older models when it releases a new model, so the current iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Mini can be discounted to less than $500, just like the current iPhone 11. It is important to pay attention to future movements.
