Monday, September 15, 2014

If you are blind or visually impaired and thinking about upgrading your iPhone which one should I get. iPhone 5s I phone 5C or iPhone 6 iphone plus

Right now is a perfect time to upgrade to a new iPhone. The question is what should I upgrade to. The iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5C or the iPhone 6 or 6 plus.  Those of us that are blind or visually impaired have a few more questions than others. I am going to attempt to break it down a little bit so we can easily make an informed decision. 

See all iPhone models.

Overview

Color, finish
I know color does not matter to those who are blind but I will included for those who have some site they may particularly care on what color they get because it may be easier to see.
The iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5 S is Available in silver, gold, and space gray. The iPhone 5c is Available in green, blue, yellow, pink, and white.

  capacity, price
Choosing between them is one of the hardest decisions for most iPhone buyers. Camera and video capabilities keep improving, App Store apps are getting larger, and the functionality of our iPhones keeps getting better. All of this comes at the price of storage space. This is why choosing a storage size that matches your particular use case is so important. The last thing you want to do is get the dreaded out of space error after only a few months of owning your new iPhone. The website iMore comes! Is another helpful website.
The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus come in three different storage options 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB. The iPhone 5 S and the iPhone 5C comes in two storage sizes: 16GB and 32GB.
Prices will vary based on model and capacity. Also on what special deals are available on your carrier or other carriers at this time the carriers AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and other providers are giving special deals for those who are willing to trade up.
