Which is better, buy an iPhone 7 or wait for the 8? — 2022

There are more and more rumors about the next iPhone. This is for no other reason than that we are just 4 months of the possible presentation of the long-awaited iPhone 8 (or whatever you want it to be called). For this reason, we are receiving more and more questions such as whether it is worth waiting or better to buy the iPhone 7 now.

Wait or buy?

we could call this the eternal question . Regardless of the version of the iPhone, we always get comments asking about whether it is better to buy the current model or wait for the next one. And it's almost always a question hard to answer

And this is not something that happens exclusively with smartphones , but applies to almost anything to be renewed with improvements every one or two years.

So, what is better, buy or wait? I have no answer for that. The answer to that question it depends on each one , and also the value of the product. What I can say is that you try to enjoy the product you have bought. I know it's annoying when you buy a product and a month later they bring out a better one, but you have to realize that this will happen sooner or later. Therefore, as a general rule, I prefer to buy, unless I obviously know that the presentation of the next model is only a month or two away.

Buy the current generation or the next? The great dilemma that has no end.

¿iPhone 8 o iPhone 7?

Good once that is clarified, let's proceed to specify more in the case that interests us. Specific, Is it better to wait for the iPhone 8 or go directly for the 7?

According to rumours, everything indicates that this 2017 iPhone will be a device with lots of news . The hopes placed on him are very high, and let's hope that Apple does not disappoint us.

New features in the future iPhone 8

This new device will come loaded with news . For example, some of the features that we could see in the next generation iPhone will be the following. Although, as with everything related to the iPhone 8, nothing is confirmed :

  • According to rumours, this year we could see three different iPhones : a normal model, a Plus and one with an OLED screen (which we could call Pro).
  • Therefore, as we have said, the OLED screen It is an expected feature in the next Apple mobile, although it would only come in the most expensive model. Therefore, if your plan is not to buy the largest and most expensive model, this is not something that will benefit you.
  • A screen that occupies a higher percentage of frontal Of the device. Thus, it will try to compete with what is on the Android market.
  • Another highly anticipated feature is the wireless charging . And it is that the company's interest in the subject of wireless charging has already been demonstrated. Even so, we still do not know if they are going to apply all their research to the new iPhone 8, or rather wait to show all their cards. In any case, wireless charging is almost guaranteed, whether it is the traditional one or the new type of wireless charging that those from Cupertino would be preparing.
  • The power it always gets better. Although, in this case we do not expect to see much improvement, since the iPhone 7 already included interesting new features in the A10 chip. But that does not mean that we can see more RAM , that although more main memory seems unnecessary today, it would be appreciated for the device to be better maintained over the years.
  • As for the Touch ID there is still a lot of uncertainty. Will it come as always on the front? Will it come in the rear? Will it come in a side? Or will it come integrated into the screen?

So… do we wait or not?

If you're not in a hurry , I would say that today it is worth waiting. If you do, you will not regret it, because great news is expected in the iPhone 8.

Instead, If none of the novelties mentioned above convince you , or you are in a hurry because your old mobile has broken, for example, in that case it may be worth it to go for the iPhone 7. I assure you that you will enjoy it anyway. And of course, when the iPhone 8 is released, it will still be a great device with great features and capabilities.


The topic that we have just discussed is the protagonist in countless comments that we receive every week. Besides, once it is released the new model, he also asks us why it is better, whether to buy the new one or save money by buying the old one. But that is a separate issue, and there what most influences is the money and the amount of difference between the versions.

Don't forget that all the news regarding the iPhone 8 will be brought here, at Apple 5×1, both in our web as in our channel YouTube .
