Absolutely not the right time. First of all, you would have been able to get it for well under 60K during prime day sale. Now since that chance is gone, wait for the iPhone 12 announcement. Even after that you could still go for the 11 as its price will be reducedI am getting it for around 62000 for a 64 GB. Should I go for it? Or wait two months for iphone 12, so that iphone 11 has some price cut.
I tried a lot to check if it ever dropped below 60K during the prime sale or Flipkart sale, but couldn't find anywhere. I was able to get it least for 66K something using prime and those cards. But these days its on 5K OFF straightway.Absolutely not the right time. First of all, you would have been able to get it for well under 60K during prime day sale.

There is a chance apple may completely stop selling the 11 but XR may still be available. They have done this before. Like selling watch Series 3 and 5 but 4 is gone.
That kind of even allegedly not possible..
Even I think it might be possible. Moving to a newer architecture and also as Apple is about to announce its new Macbooks with their own proccy, they must be working on this new possibility for a very long time. It's about the right time to show the world that they can do it for phones and they can do it for PC's. I know there a huge difference between both segments but showing incredibly better performance and power management for homegrown processors would build up mindset of people to trust on Apple and leave intel.
Let me copy text from linkNot 40% improvement in any generation
If I remember correctly, there was a 40 % jump in single core performance from A9 to A10. And an even bigger jump in multithreaded performance from A10 to A11. So, I wouldn't put a 40% jump beyond Apple when there are going to be massive efficiency improvements due to shift to 5nm process. Better thermal efficiency means they can push the performance more. How much of a real world difference makes is debatable though.Not 40% improvement in any generation
I too think that real life performance won't be too much of a difference.Definitely should wait. I think the iPhone 11 won't get discounted much because then they would need to manage the prices of iphone SE and iphone xr both. Iphone xr won't be sold below SE and SE can't be discounted since it was recently released. So most likely iphone 11 would head out and iphone 12 would replace it. However, keep one thing in mind, the iPhone 12 that will replace the 11 price wise, will have a much smaller display 5.4 inch. The 6.1 inch lcd iphone 12 version should be at least 8-10 k more expensive.
If you are not okay with either a 5.4 inch display or a spending 100 usd more, get the 11 in the next Clearout sale mostly during BBD. As for the performance difference btw A14 and A13, only geekbench will notice it. Unless you want to play pubg at HDR-extreme there will be zero real life difference.
I have a XS and have zero plans to upgrade. It already does everything fast enough. If you want a perspective on the performance difference between A12 and A13, check out Speed Test G on youtube.
Lets look at a few thingsI too think that real life performance won't be too much of a difference.
Software optimization is so immaculate that I doubt there would be a problem for another three years down the line.
It ain't android which sell on specs and numbers.
Gaming isn't a requirement at all. Do you think iphone 11 would be off the shelves and XR would continue. Like it happened with XS or others
Here is desidime thread from prime day..I tried a lot to check if it ever dropped below 60K during the prime sale or Flipkart sale, but couldn't find anywhere. I was able to get it least for 66K something using prime and those cards. But these days its on 5K OFF straightway.
Couldn't agree more. Too apt. Apple is so good in optimization and supporting phones for years to come.Bro, remember one thing when buying any tech product, do not wait for product which is not released yet. If you have money and need of iPhone now, buy whatever best available. Don't play the waiting game as its unending process.
In case of iPhone 12, yes it is going to be best in term of performance than any other iPhone of current gen, but Apple tune their software so well that you will hardly notice any difference on iPhone 11 in day to day use unless you are editing videos on your phone or perform heavy duly tasks. eg. compare XR with 11 and you will see the results, hardly any difference in performance. Yes, 11 is feature rich than XR like ultrawide and nightmode, but how many ultrawide/nightshots have you taken in your lifetime??? hardly any, i think. Same thing will happen when you compare 11 with 12 and 12 with 13.
Anyways, good luck with your phone purchase.
iPhone 6S user here who is using his phone since October 2015. I had plans of buying the 12 this year. I had almost made up my mind. But when I check my usage, I realize I don't actually need a new phone and my phone with latest iOS (14) works absolutely fine. I don't find it slow but that is because I have nothing to compare to (except my wife's X which I rarely touch). With latest iOS, all apps work fine for me and I have shelved my plan to buy new iPhone this year. May be next year. Though I do plan to buy iPad 8th Gen (assuming it is launched this year).Couldn't agree more. Too apt. Apple is so good in optimization and supporting phones for years to come.
I am simple user, streaming music, Netflix or heavy calling.
Yes I take a lot of photos, but ultra-wide, I haven't taken even 3-4 during year.
But also remember that there is good chance iphone 11 may be discontinued completely by apple.In September the prices will fall with iPhone 12 so don’t go with temptation. Hold for one month or so...
