These are all good reasons to buy an iPhone but there are many more not listed below. These are just my top 16 favourite reasons. If I missed one let me know in the comments below.
1: It’s the #1 phone in the world.
Apple products are always at or near the top in every category they compete in. As of today, October 2012, Apple has sold over 500 million iOS devices. That’s probably more than every other smartphone OS combined. The next closest competitor is Android with approx 200 million devices sold, and that includes “dumbphones” by comparison.
2:Never Been Hacked
Apple has never been hacked via malware or virus. Also, iOS 6 provides anti-virus software free of charge which helps keep your device safe from viruses and malware which are increasingly being found in apps on Google Play.
3: It’s simple to use.
This has always been an Apple hallmark, their products are the easiest to use of any product available.
4: There is no learning curve involved.
Apple products are straightforward and easy to understand how to operate without having to read a manual or be trained by someone else on how to use them.
5: The camera is phenomenal for taking pics.
The iPhone 4S 8 megapixel camera with backside illumination technology takes breathtaking photos. Shots were taken with an iPhone 5 look even better.
Apple’s Retina Display provides more pixels per inch than any other mobile device, resulting in the most visually stunning texts, videos, photos and games available.
6: True panoramic photos means you won’t have any black spaces between shots.
The camera in the iPhone 5 can truly take panoramic photos. No more stitching together multiple shots to get the full picture.
7: The video taking ability is excellent.
iPhone 5 can shoot better quality videos than most digital cameras. It takes 1080P HD videos at 30 fps. That’s really good considering you could probably buy a decent digital camcorder for that price if not more.
8: Apple has an app for just about everything.
With over 600,000 apps available on iTunes there are plenty of things to do with your iPhone or iPod Touch besides simply making phone calls or sending texts. You can get apps for work, education, entertainment or social networking.
9: Siri is amazing.
Have you ever wanted your very own personal assistant? Well, now you can have one built right into your iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 with Siri. And the best part is that it’s free to use and understand what you’re saying. It actually learns how you speak as time goes on Amazing. Except if you live in Australia where they got rid of her for some reason…must be because Australians talk funny or something I guess…. (Or maybe they didn’t like the fact that she couldn’t answer questions about cricket *cough*)
10: Your iTunes music library can go along with you wherever you go.
With iCloud, you can access your music library from any computer via the iCloud website and download songs wirelessly onto your iPhone. This feature has got to be one of the best things about owning an Apple product. And it’s free too.
11: Automatic Updates is a nice thing to have.
With Automatic Updates enabled, all of your apps on your iDevice will automatically update without having to remember to manually check for updates. This way you always have the most current version, and by default, every app will remain updated as long as it’s available. You can also make exceptions for certain apps if you like such as “not updating Angry Birds Seasons because I don’t need another level ” then it won’t update that particular app.
12: The iPhone 5 has amazing battery life.
The biggest complaint about smartphones, in general, is the terrible battery life but with the iPhone 5 you can expect to be able to use it for about 8 hours or so of interactive use before needing a recharge. That’s pretty good compared to most other smartphones on the market today.

13: It doesn’t have any silly, useless features.
If you don’t want them they aren’t there. You buy an Apple product because you want something that works how you want it to, not so you have to learn how to use a flash player or some other useless thing.
14: You can sync your iPhone with your PC wirelessly.
You don’t have to be stuck at a desk to update apps on your phone. Thanks to iCloud you can plug the cord into your computer that’s already near the outlet then just turn on wireless syncing and click “sync” No more jockeying for position around an electrical outlet.
15: They are built really well which means they won’t break easily .
Apple uses very high-quality materials in their products which means less chance of them breaking which also means if they do break Apple will usually fix or replace it for you
16: They are great conversation starters.
Do you know how people love talking about their kids? Well if you have an iPhone people always want to talk about the latest cool app they downloaded, who’s got the best case, or why iOS 6 has Siri now. And if you don’t know what Siri is then everyone will probably think you live under a rock so be prepared to answer some questions when you tell people you just got your new iPhone 5.
