Picking out an iPhone used to be easier—just get the newest one with all the storage you can afford. We still recommend plenty of storage, but the choice of which iPhone to go with that storage isn’t quite so cut-and-dry.

There's another major factor that will influence what iPhone you should buy: The upcoming iPhone release, which will happen this fall. If you can, you should actually put off buying a new iPhone and wait 4 to 6 weeks to see what Apple unveils. To get an idea of what Apple may release, take a look at the iPhone 8 rumors.
