Best iPhone: Put down your vote for the best Apple phone you can buy

iPhone 12 is here and, as such, we’ve updated our best iPhone list with the flagship and it’s Pro equivalent. We’ll save the full verdict for the reviews but be safe in the knowledge Apple has knocked in out of the park in 2020.

Apple has expanded its iPhone lineup for 2020, going up to four phones with the introduction of iPhone 12 mini. The move shows Apple’s aim at appealing to a broad market, especially with its choice to continue to sell iPhone 11 and iPhone XR at cheaper prices as well.

However, does this mean Apple might be watering down its traditionally premium experience? Or, is it able to still offer extremely desirable features across the board? We’ve reviewed much of the iPhones on offer right now to help you decide.

Take a look below and vote for your pick for the best iPhone arrived. We’re always updating our best lists and, for this list in particular, be sure to come back when its updated with the impending iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Best iPhones Release Dates

It’s a good idea to keep tabs on when the iPhone you’re eyeing up was actually released. Apple works on a reliable annual schedule, so if your desired device is almost a year old then it might be a good plan to wait and see what the newer generation has in store – or at least to see if there’s a price drop for the previous one. Fortunately all iPhones receive software and security support for years after release, so you should have peace of mind regardless of when your choice first came out.
