Apple usually sells four or so iPhones at a given time. The previous year’s version gets a price drop and moves down in the chain. This year though, Apple released three new iPhones and kept the two year old iPhones 6s in the lineup. The end result is an eight iPhone lineup that stretches from $349 16GB iPhone SE all the way to the $1149 256GB iPhone X. It’s so bad that Apple has a new dedicated tool for comparing different iPhone models.
If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, you might be confused as to which particular iPhone to get. Maybe you’re upgrading from iPhone 5s/6 and you don’t know which new iPhone is the best option for you. May be this is going to be your first iPhone. Let me walk you through the new iPhone line up.
Apple has simplified the storage tiers this time. Instead of the usual three tier options, it’s now down to two. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 come in 64GB and 256GB versions ($150 more for the upgraded storage). All other iPhones in the lineup have a 32GB and 128GB options ($100 more for upgraded storage).

The iPhone SE might be an almost two-year-old device but it’s still mighty powerful. It has an A9 chip and the same 12 MP shooter from iPhone 6s. But it’s all in the body of an iPhone 5s. And this is the only latest 4-inch iPhone in the lineup.
If you’re looking for a small, pocket-friendly, slip free, iPhone with no camera bump, just go with iPhone SE. There are two models right now – 32 GB and 128 GB. Try to go for the 128 GB version if possible (this advice goes for all available iPhones).
