With the recent unveiling of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, plenty of Apple fans will be mulling over whether to upgrade. But if you don't need the latest and greatest, or you're on a budget, you may be thinking about grabbing a deal on an older model, such as 2019's iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. But is either worth it in 2023?

The iPhone 11 range is four years old now, and Apple stopped selling it directly when it released the iPhone 14 in September 2022. That doesn't mean it's not still a solid option though, as you might find it available at a good price at other retailers. And given that Apple phones tend to last and usually get software support for longer than Android phones, a 2019 iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro is still worth considering if you find a good price and don't need the best camera phone or the fastest processing available.
