The best way for first-time iPhone buyers is to buy a new one, according to the research firm CNET.
But some people find it more effective to wait for the next generation of phones.
CNET’s David Pogue says there are two key factors in iPhone buying that you need to consider.
Will my phone come with a charger?2.
What do I get for my money?1.
Will your iPhone come with one?CNET’s research found that people who have an iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 are most likely to upgrade to a iPhone 6 in the future.
The researchers found that the average smartphone buyer in the United States who is in the same income bracket as Apple Inc.’s CEO is likely to pay between $5,000 and $6,000 for an iPhone 6, while those who are making more than $50,000 a year are most apt to pay $7,000 or more for an iPad Pro.
“The more money you make and the more comfortable you feel about your phone, the more likely you are to upgrade,” Pogue said.
“You need to look at how much of that you’re going to save and how much you’re spending.”CNET reported in July that iPhone owners who are in the top 5 percent of income earners are more likely to be willing to spend on upgrades than people who are earning less.
The average iPhone owner in the U.S. making between $60,000 to $70,000 is more than twice as likely to spend more than they did in the previous year.
The report also found that Apple’s average iPhone 5 is about twice as expensive as a similarly priced Samsung Galaxy S6.
In general, consumers who are buying a new phone are less likely to have their first device fall short of their expectations.
That is because new phones often have smaller screens, so there are fewer pixels to work with, and because most new phones come with larger battery packs than previous models.
Pogue added that the new iPhones typically have more cameras, and that people are more willing to pay for a camera accessory that makes the phone look better.
“Most people don’t really pay attention to the size of the camera on a phone because they don’t need it,” he said.
“They buy their phone because it’s going to do something for them.
The problem is, most of the time the only thing that really does it is a good camera.”
Pogue added Apple is doing well, especially in the marketplace for premium phones.
But he noted that even with the high-end phones, people still have to pay more for the same battery.
Pogue noted that Apple is already facing an uphill battle in the smartphone market, but that Apple can take advantage of the fact that consumers are not as happy with the iPhone 6 as they were with the original iPhone 4.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a June earnings call that the company has seen a dramatic drop in iPhone sales over the past few years, and there has been a significant drop in Apple’s profitability.
“You can see it in the way people are spending,” Pique said.
