Knowing what you know, would you buy it now? Main considerations:
  • iPhone 15 out in approximately 4 months
  • iPhone 14 line has been reported with bugs
Also, it seems the iPhone 14 Pro Max is far more popular than the iPhone 14 Pro - - is there any clear reason for this?
Just down to size preference or is the Pro more buggy than the Pro Max?

Also I have no clue about bugs, any examples?

I haven't seen first hand, but seem them widely reported online. For instance:



https://www.google.com/search?q="iPhone+14+Pro"+issues+Reddit

None of those make for great reading, when spending 800 upwards on a new device.

These seem to be early software bugs that appear to have been solved? If you are worried about that, maybe buy the 14 now and not the 15 at launch ;)

This! Thank you.

Every new device is suffering from bugs on launch these days. Look at the Samsung or Google flagships, they are no exception.
If your „fear“ bugs, don’t by a brand new device right after release. Wait a couple of months for the software to mature.

The 15 series won’t be any different and will also be suffering from bugs and annoyances that are going to get solved throughout the first months, believe me.

I bought 2 x 12 Mini on launch and both have been flawless since then.

That said I do agree that for most tech products these days, some level of teething problems are almost a given soon after launch, it seems to have got worse over time, yet also accepted!

I've literally just ordered a 14 Pro. I have a 13 Mini that the battery has tanked on recently, Face ID has also recently stopped working and there is a dead spot on the screen... Oh and my better half needs a new phone, so Applecare + express replacement for this mini, to get her from Android to iOS, and a new 14 Pro for me as I do actually need a new one. I don't get as excited with the yearly updates anymore so just buy as and when needed.
