Are you an Android user? If so, are you thinking about switching to an iPhone? Maybe you’re not sure if it’s the smartphone for you. After all, there are some features found on Android that you can’t get on any Apple product.

Despite that, I believe right now is the best time to buy an iPhone.

Maybe you’re not so sure about making this change. After all, it might take a while to get used to having an iPhone. But, Apple has been improving both its software and hardware, and they just keep getting better every year.

If you’re on the fence about it, let me give you a few more reasons why now is the best time to get an iPhone.

There Are a Bunch of Great Devices to Choose From

Long gone are the days when you only had one iPhone to choose from. Apple now has a wider variety than ever before.

As of right now, if you’re looking for a high-end iPhone, you can choose between the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. All of these with a slight difference in hardware and, of course, price.

The best part is that you can go for the cheaper model, the iPhone 11, and you’ll have many of the same features the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max have, plus more colors to choose from. Not only that, but if you want to wait for the next iPhone, rumor has it Apple’s iPhone 12 lineup will have at least four different models.

Maybe you’re on a budget or you just don’t want to spend that much on a smartphone. Well, now there’s an even cheaper option available: the second-generation iPhone SE, which is a great option for everyone right now. But more on this later.

It’s not just with the iPhone, but iPhone accessories, like the AirPods, have a few options as well. You can choose to get the normal AirPods with a regular charging case or with a wireless charging case. If you want other features like noise cancellation, you can choose the AirPods Pro instead.

Besides the current AirPods lineup, Apple is planning to release the third-generation AirPods, a cheaper set of AirPods Pro called AirPods Pro Lite, and a new pair of over-ear headphones that might be called AirPods Max and that could come out in June.

This is the first time that we’ve had so many different iPhones to choose from, and we’ll probably have the same number of options for our AirPods in the future. So whatever budget you have, Apple’s got you covered.

You Can Get a Brand New iPhone for Cheap

Say you’re on a budget, or you just don’t want to spend $700+ on an iPhone. Now, with the release of the second-generation iPhone SE, you can get everything you need from the iPhone 11 at about half the price.

This year’s iPhone SE costs $399, and it’s the best budget smartphone right now. So powerful, it’s even outperformed other high-end smartphones like the iPhone XS Max and Samsungs’s most expensive phones.

That’s thanks to the A13 Bionic Chip, the same one you’ll find on the iPhone 11 lineup. On the outside, it may look like an older iPhone model. But on the inside, it’s got the most up-to-date specs from the current iPhone lineup.

This means you can buy the iPhone SE right now, without worrying about an upgrade for the next four or five years. This iPhone, specifically, is the reason now is a great time to switch to an iPhone.

iOS 14 Will Take Cues from Android

I’ll be the first one to admit that there are a ton of Android features that would be great for the iPhone, including real widgets and additional customization options.

And these features might be the reason why you don’t want to switch to an iPhone. It’s understandable, but Apple is working on some significant software updates that will make you forget about Android.

For starters, according to some recent rumors, iOS 14 might bring widgets to the iPhone’s Home screen for the first time ever. As 9to5Mac points out, these will be Android-like widgets that you’ll be able to select and place anywhere you’d like

This is a massive step in the right direction for Apple. And some great news for new and old iPhone users as well.

Plus, this could also mean that you’ll be able to fully customize your apps, moving them and placing them wherever you want, instead of the same grid view we’ve had since the first iPhone came out.

In addition to widgets, Apple is also planning on changing the look of the Home screen. Or at least giving you more options to choose from. With iOS 14, instead of having the regular grid layout, Apple might change it to a list view of all your installed apps.

We don’t know yet if this is going to be a new layout option, or it’s going to be a different page. But the way this would work is that it would show you a list of all your apps, and you’ll be able to customize which apps come first. You’d also be able to sort it so it shows your most recently used apps, the apps that have a pending notification first, or in alphabetical order. Plus, Siri could also suggest a personalized list for you.

So there you have it. Apple is making the iPhone even better and now has a plethora of options for everyone. The future looks bright for iPhone users, and if you were waiting for the perfect moment to get an iPhone, this is it.
