To iPhone 5, or not to iPhone 5? That is the question. User complaints and problems with the iPhone 5 seem to be growing daily.

Apple’s upcoming new smartphone, the iPhone X (iPhone 10), is due out next month (November). Even if the $1000 price tag doesn’t put you off, there are certain things that you should know about the iPhone X which may, such as iPhone 10’s Face ID facial recognition.

Apple has introduced a new version of the iPhone 5c. This cheaper iPhone is being introduced partly as Apple acknowledges that the demand for the colorful iPhone 5c was not as great as expected. When Apple announced the release of the iPhone 5s, it also came out with the cheaper, more colorful 5c.
If you have experienced the frustration of opening the photo app on your iPhone only to find that most of your photos have disappeared, leaving a “Restoring” message on the screen, and then having to wait while they restore, all for no apparent reason, you’re not alone.
