Which is the best iPhone 2020
Picking the best iPhone depends on your budget, needs, and tastes. Thanks to the choice in Apple’s range, you can find yourself a decent iPhone that will get software updates for at least four years, or you can opt to upgrade every year.
If you’re in the latter camp you might want to wait for the iPhone 12 range, though because of the coronavirus pandemic we’re still not sure when they’ll launch.
Apple knows people have different buying habits and so it currently sells four different lines of iPhone: iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, iPhone SE and iPhone XR. Each can run the latest iOS 13 and all will be updated with the new iOS 14 and likely several versions to come after that, one of the big advantages of getting an iPhone rather than an Android device.
Based on our testing, the iPhone 11 is the best iPhone for most people, given its powerful processor and the fact that its cameras support the same photo features as the pricer iPhone 11 Pro models even though the iPhone 11 gets by with just two rear cameras. If you’re less constrained by budget, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the iPhone to get, thanks to its bright, expansive OLED screen and long battery life.
For people who balk at high phone prices, the iPhone SE will be ideal. At $399, it’s the cheapest iPhone available, and it’s a compact phone for people who don’t care for 6-inch-plus screens. Apple’s $999 iPhone 11 Pro is another option for people who like compact phones, while people who like bigger screens but hate big prices can turn to the $599 iPhone XR.
