    Hi everyone.

    I was seaching on google to find the buyers guide about the apple products. But if i go into the iPhone page it says: "Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle"

    Days Since Update: 159 (Avg = 178)

    But in the text below it says that the iPhone is only updated on time a year in June. That doesn't make any sense for me, because the buyers guide says there should be a new iPhone very soon..

    This is correct.

    We could turn this into a very long discussion over what the rest of that page means but it really doesn't matter.

    Just take away what matters (update will be June or July) and be happy you didn't waste your afternoon worrying about it.

    But why does say "Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle" then. This is misleding the users of the site..

    Because of the update to the original iPhone, they Buyer's Guide math is a tad misleading, but it's true that an update is coming, just in June.

    The guides are based on the average time in between previous product refreshes in the series -- as you can see, the iPhone series came out in 09/2007, was updated (16GB) in 02/2008, and then in 07/2008 (iPhone 3G), and then in 06/2009 (iPhone 3GS). The historical average time between these refreshes is used to predict future changes. That's about it....
