I ordered a new iPhone!
14 Pro it is, to replace the original iPhone SE that I bought in April 2016. Loving the Dynamic Island.
It is exciting because I am frugal with gadgets (and everything generally!) and I buy iPhones only a few times in a decade. So this is a big moment in the house.
Like any phone Apple made, I would say the iPhone SE the 14 Pro is replacing is still good as Apple generally claims on Switching to iPhone page on their website .
I could squeeze another year out of the SE if I could put up with a fussy 6.5‑year-old battery. But I felt like SE has served us well, and was excited to upgrade.
I think iPhones are well made and last really long if I use them carefully, barring any unlucky tumbles. That’s why I prefer giving my money to Apple than its shabby copycats.
I am now looking forward to the iPhone 15 Pro to replace the iPhone 7.
