  • David Nelson: “When reading what’s changed in the latest iPhone we tend to get comparisons to the immediate previous model. Not so helpful if you’re coming from a device that’s two or more years old. The “Compare iPhone Models” page helps. It includes devices all the way back to the iPhone 6 and the original SE. For example, I can see the weight and dimensions of my 12 Pro compared to a 15 Pro Max.
