On the fence about completing IPhone 12 order

Hardware & Accessories

Hi everyone. The subject says it all. I impulsively ordered an IPhone 12 yesterday, and I woke up regretting it. I’m asking for people’s opinion. Should I go through with the order, or cancel the order and wait for the 13? Thanks for any help in advance

Get the 13 or whatever it will be call. If you are getingt the 13, get the pro. Better battery. I am hoping the 13 pro max will have finger print. If not, I will for next year. Now I have 12 pro. Is nice but the battery is not that good.

A good friend jost got an iphone 12, and since my 8 plus is beginning to show its age a bit, I was tempted to order the 12 as well. I got to thinking, though, and talked myself out of it for now. The new model is right around the corner, so I think I'd be wisest to be patient and see what the new model has to offer. I've told myself that I will hold off on upgrading until touch ID makes a comeback, and while I know that my 8 plus is still being supported, I'm not sure I want to wait a whole nother year. I really love my current phone, and on the whole, it is still meeting my needs just fine. If I wasn't having responsiveness issues, I wouldn't even think about upgrading until this phone either dies or is no longer supported, but since I am starting to have a few issues, I need to at least consider upgrading sooner or later. The sad thing is that I have no idea if the lag and focus issues I'm experiencing are even my phone's fault, or if it's just iOS 14. Either way, with the new models coming out so soon, it seems prudent to wait, at least in my mind. Hope this helps.

It all depends. What phone do you currently have and what condition is it in? If it is in good condition and not very old, it may be worth waiting. However, if your current phone is in bad shape and if it is older, I say go for the iPhone 12. If you have an older phone, keep in mind that you receive all of the improvements added each year since your phone was released including those introduced last year with the 12 series. If your phone isn't very old and you can wait for the 13, you may wish to wait and get the latest and greatest in 2 or 3 months time.

I have the 11. It’s in perfect condition and only 7 or 8 months old. The main reason for getting a new phone is because I only have 128gb but I’m looking at the 256gb 12 for the sake of more storage

Hi Country Music fan: I just upgraded to the 12 mini from an eight. Love it! I told someone the other day that yes the phone is mini but the sound quality and speed is mighty. Oh yes, I don't miss the home button. Love my new phone! My vote, keep your order and enjoy! I haven't heard anything about the 13 yet. So I am not sure if waiting for that would be better or not. But I know this community. And they will help you to make the best decision for you!

If you have a lot of money you can have 12 13 and 14 iphones.
If you are blind then what functionality is important for you?
It is your choice.
And I cannot say "no" or "yes".
As for me I don't like very big and big devices.
It's a iPhone first of all not iPad.
And I know that the smallest Iphone 12 is bigger than se2020.
But it is your choice.

In my opinion, I always wait until the newest model arrives, due to finances, and my love of newest tech. If the iPhone isn't a must have, due to a damaged device, I would recommend waiting until the new toys drop. This way you are future proofed as much as possible.
