Apple makes iPhones at different price points, with different screen sizes and even with different features – truly, something to offer just about everyone.
Which, of course, makes it difficult if you’re the person trying to find a new iPhone but aren’t quite sure where to begin.
The best iPhone for a senior would obviously be different than for a teenager who just wants the fastest iPhone possible for playing games all day.
But in my opinion… There are actually two great iPhone models for seniors, both of which are worth a closer look.
The Best “Standard” iPhone for Seniors: the iPhone SE
First introduced in 2020, the iPhone SE has a starting price of just $399 – making it the most affordable iPhone on the market and perfect for seniors who may be on a fixed income. Despite this, it also comes with the A13 processor – meaning that you can reasonably expect to get updates for the iOS operating system for at least four years, possibly more.
The camera is more than acceptable even though it only has a single lens, and it still uses Touch ID for authentication instead of Face ID. It’s also physically small, making it perfect for situations where size is still a concern.
The Best “Big” iPhone for Seniors: the iPhone XR
But if you’re a senior who wants a larger phone, look no farther than the iPhone XR. It starts at a $499 price point and even though it only has an A12 processor, it still has all the speed you need for sending messages, spending time on social media and more. It, too, is expected to receive iOS software updates for the next several years so you don’t have to worry about it getting obsolete.
It does have Face ID as opposed to Touch ID, which may come with a learning curve if you’ve been using the latter all these years.
