The iPhone is probably that one phone that you can expect a new generation model of every year. As of press time, the iPhone 13 has already been launched, and it is safe to speculate that the iPhone 14 will follow sometime in 2022. 

While there are people who like to change their iPhones yearly so that they can have the latest model, there are those who prefer to stick to the tried and tested because these phones still work for them no matter how "old" they may be.

Let us take the iPhone 6, a model that has seen recorded preorders, as an example. It will not be a surprise if there are still people out there who own and even regularly use an iPhone 6, especially with the many hidden tricks it has that make using it more convenient, accessible, and even pretty entertaining.
