Apple is the biggest name in mobile, and with good reason. It essentially invented the modern smartphone with the original iPhone, and it’s been delivering polished, innovative handsets year after year ever since.
Unlike most smartphone makers, Apple launches just a few handsets each year – so each new phone is an event and feels special. This focused approach ensures all its handsets are high-quality too.
Why we love Apple
We’re big fans of Apple’s phones for a lot of reasons, but the hardware and software designs are perhaps the most significant. The hardware has consistently been among the most stylish and premium found on a smartphone.
But Apple isn’t afraid to change it up, completely changing the design of its phones every few years, and so far never delivering an ugly handset.
As for the software, that’s a bit more consistent, with Apple instead polishing it year after year. iPhones are often thought of as intuitive and as phones that “just work” and that’s largely down to the software, which is well thought out, and runs smoothly even on lower end hardware.
Our love of the software also extends to the apps, which tend towards higher quality than the ones found on Android.
Most other aspects of Apple’s phones tend to impress too – it’s rare that the latest iPhone isn’t one of the most powerful handsets around, and it will usually have one of the best cameras too.
Notable Apple 5G iPhones
Apple hasn’t been making 5G phones for long, but there are still a number of great options, with its 5G handsets including the iPhone 12, which was joined by the tiny iPhone 12 Mini with just a 5.4-inch screen, the premium iPhone 12 Pro with its quad-lens camera, and the enormous iPhone 12 Pro Max. That has a 6.7-inch screen, which is the biggest Apple has ever put on an iPhone.
All of these iPhones have a premium, modern design and impressive power, so you won’t go wrong with any of them and there should be something for almost everyone here. For full details of all these phones, check out our iPhone 12 guide.
