When Apple releases a new iPhone, the world goes nuts. Starting from its initial release in 2007, the iPhone has remained, for most people, the smartphone of choice. It looks sleek, it’s easy and intuitive to use, and it comes with it an aura of coolness that other “lesser” smartphones lack. Iphone parts are almost always top of the line.
But iPhone releases have experienced some pretty dramatic changes over the last few years. Since the beginning they’ve been nicely integrated in the workplace and they provided you with a sense of exclusivity and style. Initially, there is only one iPhone per release. You either stick with your old iPhone, or you buy the latest one from your friendly neighborhood Apple Store. Last year’s release marked a new era for the iPhone; instead of having just one model, there were TWO: the iPhone 5S, which is the usual, brand new, “upgraded” iPhone model and the iPhone 5C, its lower-specced, budget sibling. The pattern continues with the iPhone 6, the latest iteration of the smartphone that was only released in September this year. So now there are two new iPhones: the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
For normal iPhone users, this variety of choices can be a little bit confusing. It makes one ask “So, what iPhone should I buy? Which one is suited to my needs? Is the newest always the best?”
For this article, let’s narrow down the choices to three models: the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. It is to be noted that iPhone 5 and the models before it are already retired, while iPhone 5C is a budget model, so it’s really not fair to compare it to its “regular” counterparts.
First, the iPhone 5S. When it was released last year, pundits were unanimous in their praises. It was still the familiar iPhone in looks and size, yet it has tons of new features that can pique the interest of even the most loyal of users of other smartphone brands. This is the model where the Touch ID fingerprint scanner was first introduced (can be used to unlock the phone and authenticate the user in the App Store and iTunes); it also boasted a fast Apple A7 processor, an M7 Motion co-processor. Overall, it is a pretty solid phone…last year.

Next, is the iPhone 6. With a 4.7 inch screen that is bigger than the usual 4 inch screen of its predecessors, the iPhone 6 is a sign that Apple is finally willing to give in to people who go for “bigger is better.” Despite the size, the phone still fits very comfortably in the hand. The iPhone 6 also boasts a better battery than the 5S, and has a better and improved processor (the A8). This model also debuts an NFC chip for Apple Pay mobile payments.
The iPhone 6 Plus is a jacked up iPhone 6. It has a humongous 5.5 inch screen (which makes it more of a “phablet” than a smartphone), a longer battery life than the iPhone 6, and a better camera with image stabilization.
While the iPhone 5S is a good smartphone, it cannot be denied that the model is already outdated not only by its newer siblings, but by models from other smartphone brands. The iPhone 6 Plus is great for consuming multimedia content and gaming, but its size, as well as its high price, really does not make it practical for most people. For heavy smartphone users who really want a handy phone, the iPhone 6 would be their best bet.
