Is it time to upgrade your iPhone? Our quiz can help you decide.

Is it time to upgrade your iPhone? Our quiz can help you decide.

Apple’s new iPhone 14 has all the usual tweaks and upgrades you’ve come to expect from an annual update, including a better camera and interesting new features such as the ability to detect when you’ve been in a car crash. It’s tempting, but do you actually need it?

A new smartphone is a major purchase that can cost anywhere from $200 to $2,000. The companies that make and sell the devices would like you to believe it’s necessary to shell out for a new one every couple of years. In reality, a smartphone can live a long and fulfilling life with proper maintenance and, if needed, a few repairs.

Go easy on your wallet and the environment by only buying new devices when you really need them. To help you decide when that time has come, the Help Desk has made this quiz to guide you.
