What is the latest iPhone model and what does it offer?

(Pocket-lint) – Apple typically announces a new iPhone every September, and there’s usually more than one model to choose from. Every year, the number changes but the number doesn’t correlate with the year it was announced, which means it can be a little tricky to keep with which is the newest iPhone. 

Don’t worry though, we are here to help. 


What is the newest iPhone?

The newest and latest iPhone is the iPhone SE (2022) which arrived in April 2022. It’s the entry-level iPhone though and it has a different design to the flagship models, opting for Touch ID instead of Face ID.

If you’re wondering what the latest iPhone is with Face ID, then the newest model is the iPhone 13.

The iPhone 13 series has four models – the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max – and they were all announced in September 2021.

What are the differences in the iPhone 13 models?

We’ve got an entire feature dedicated to the differences between the iPhone 13 models to help you work out which is the right iPhone 13 model for you if you want the latest model.

As a quick summary, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have the same features as each other but they differ in size and display size. The same goes for the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13, with the differences just being physical size and screen size.

The Pro models offer extra features over the standard iPhone 13 models though, including a more premium finish, faster refresh rate display, bigger batteries, a third camera lens, a LiDAR sensor, different storage options and a different GPU.

We also have a feature detailing how the iPhone 13 models differ to the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 models in case you’re choosing between the new and older models. You can read that here.


What iPhone models do Apple sell?

While you can of course buy the latest iPhone models from Apple – which as we mentioned is currently the iPhone 13 models – some of the older models are still available to buy through Apple too, as well as elsewhere.

Apple sells the following models:

  • iPhone 13 mini
  • iPhone 13 
  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12 mini
  • iPhone 12
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone SE (2022)

You can read all about each iPhone model and how they compares to the rest of the range in our separate feature that discusses which iPhone might be best for you.

What is the next iPhone and when is it coming?

The next Apple iPhone is expected to be called the iPhone 14 and it is expected to be announced in September 2022. There are expected to be four models again, though no an iPhone 14 mini. Rumours suggest we will see an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

You can read all the rumours surrounding the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max in our separate feature. We also have one on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
