Were you searching for a List of iPhones in order? This article is for you as we have prepared a complete list of iPhones in order.

If you have an iPhone, you might be aware of the fact that it does not ask you to get nonsense apps that can clutter your screen. Most of the people in the world prefer to use Android phones as they provide diverse options for hardware and software customization. As far as the iPhone is concerned, it comes with a sleek design and is very fast when it comes to browsing speed.

The best part about using an iPhone is that it provides a better browsing experience on your phone as compared to Android devices. Mobile phone manufacturers that use Android provide a lot of bloatware in their device which takes much storage space on the phone. But with an iPhone, you will not find a software preloaded on it, therefore, it will provide you a clean experience. You should definitely have an iPhone if you always want to avail of the latest version of your smartphone.

Apple mainly highlights the simplicity in the iPhone and that might be the reason why its users can’t replace the batteries on their iPhones, however, the batteries can be replaced but the same has to be done by a skilled person. The cheapest phone that Apple offers is iPhone SE which is priced at $349. Therefore, it is obvious to all that it can be owned by only those who have got some money to spend on their phones. Apple is not only restricted to smartphones but also manufactures computers, tablets, and watches.
