When it comes to iOS security updates, the answer is always to install the latest software as soon as possible. iOS 14.8 is no different, however the launch of iOS 15 is only days away. While iOS 14.8 patches a serious iPhone vulnerability, the same problem is also fixed in iOS 15. iPhone owners currently running iOS 14 have two choices when it comes to dealing with this security threat.
Now that Apple's latest iPhones have launched, pricing and availability of earlier models has changed. Three devices are no longer offered on the Apple website or in retail stores. The iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone XR are officially discontinued. Anyone seeking these models must purchase them refurbished, used, or new from a third-party supplier.
This puts the complete 2021 iPhone lineup as follows:
No, the iPhone 13 does not fit in older cases designed for the iPhone 12.
No, all iPhone 13 models use Face ID or passcodes for user authentication. Touch ID is only available on the iPhone SE (2nd generation).
All four iPhone 13 models include significant camera upgrades. Larger image sensor pixels, wider maximum apertures, and redesigned image signal processors capture more light and reduce noise.
