Today marks exactly five months since Apple first released the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Five months since Apple officially changed its iPhone strategy, reusing the same design on a non-"S" model smartphone for the first time ever. Gadget blogs had a field day with all the leaks ahead of Apple's launch, and many sites labeled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus "boring" because their appearance was so similar to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Well, those boring new iPhones went on to quickly become the fastest selling smartphones in the world, just as most of us knew they would.
I picked up both new iPhone models at launch, and I've had a current-generation iPhone in my pocket every day since then. Interestingly, however, it has become increasingly clear to me over that period that for the first time ever, there is a right iPhone to buy and a wrong iPhone.
