Which iPhone is best for you? [2021]

Just shy of 14 years ago, Apple launched the first iPhone with phenomenal success and changed the industry forever. Since then, 29 different models have been designed and released, each with its own unique features designed to fit every personality.


Although each iPhone has maintained Apple's signature clean and sleek design, the years since the first release have seen a bunch of internal changes including the introduction of Siri and the controversial decision to remove the headphone jack (genius or the absolute worst?).


Navigating these changes isn’t easy and you might left be wondering which iPhone is right for you. To simplify the process, we’re matched some of the most popular iPhones with a range of personas.
