Apple has made revolutionary advancements in the smartphone industry. The company has to an extent set the bar high for the smartphone industry. But the industry is rapidly changing.
Other companies are coming up with more advanced handsets that pack more power than the iPhones. This has created a threat to Apple’s dominance in the industry.
Although, the iPhone has a lot of features that are desirable, at the current market trend, most of these features are now available on other devices. This makes it easier for one to make a rational decision as to which handset to buy.
One of the main reasons why you should not be in a rush to buy an iPhone is the obsolescence of previous generations once a new one is unveiled. This makes it almost mandatory for any iPhone user to upgrade their handset once a new one is unveiled so as to have an uninterrupted and glitch-less use of the device.
This mainly because some previous iPhone generations stop receiving software updates as these updates are migrated to the new devices. This means that any new feature that improves performance that Apple adds with software updates will be missed – unless, of course, you buy the newest iPhone (so clever of Apple Inc.)

With time, apps cease to also stop supporting devices running old operating systems. For example, with the unveiling of iOS 9, most apps now only provide support for devices running iOS 8 and above. This means that anyone running software below iOS 8 will either have to contend with old apps, or take the plunge and get the new iPhone to be guaranteed of software and apps updates.
