Jim Cramer Says Apple iPhone 12 Is Enough to Launch Upgrade Cycle

DanKuhn14

And just like that the first 5G iPhone has arrived.

In a virtual event Tuesday, Apple revealed its much anticipated first line of 5G-enabled smartphones.

Apple launched four different iPhone 12 models, including the mini, a 5.4-inch model starting at $699; a 6.1-inch model starting at $799, a 6.1-inch Pro model starting at $999, and a 6.7-inch pro model starting at $1,099.

Among numerous design changes, the phones feature flatter edges and a ceramic shield that Apple said is “tougher than any other smartphone glass.”

In addition to design and tech updates, Apple announced the next line of phones will be shipped without accessories including charging cables and headphones.

While the event was certainly much anticipated, did Apple do enough to launch an upgrade cycle into the holiday season?

While pundits continue to debate the current value of 5G, Jim Cramer said Apple did plenty to give consumers a reason to upgrade to the newest model. Highlighting Cramer's interest were the camera updates in the new model as well as the new MagSafe feature for wireless charging. 

Though there are always updates Cramer would like to see, he said ultimately, if you're a consumer working off an iPhone 7 or 9, there are plenty of reasons to upgrade. 

The phones will be available for preorder beginning Oct. 16.

I feel like the only differences between the newer generations and the older ones are the camera quality

Despite the fact that they are out of my budget, they do not even come with a charger or set of airpods! Yea, try again next year.

I’d love to upgrade my 4 year old iPhone, but those prices are outside of my budget.
