Iphone 14 Pro vs Samsung S22 Ultra

Post by opus360 »

I had iphone 6 for work, and currently have Samsung S7 for personal use. Now, I am debating between the iphone 14 pro and Samsung S22 Ultra. (I find the 14 Pro Max uncomfortable to hold with one hand.) I have an ipad 9th gen, Samsung Tab S7+. Use windows PC. Relatives are a mixture of Apple and android users.

Iphone 14 Pro
+ Support up to 2029 (vs 2026 for S22)
+ Mom uses Iphone, so FaceTime with her more accessible. (I also have ipad that I can do Facetime with her.)

Samsung S22 Ultra
+ Body design seems and feels more premium
+ I am more familiar with how Samsung works. So, no learning curve.
? S pen - not sure if I would be using this much. I have s pen on Samsung Tab S7+, but kids are the main user.

Any thoughts between these two phones for my use?

Just curious - how do you know of the iphone 14 pro being supported until 2029? Is this stated somewhere or are you assuming? Thanks.

I vote to go with the iPhone. I used to buy and support iPhones for 15 non-savvy users. They learned the ropes quickly without much help from me. As you know, if you have a question, just type it into any browser.
To me iPhones and Toyotas are alike...high quality product and great support. Well I don't know if the Toyota has great support; my vehicles just haven't needed it.

I read somewhere that it will be supported until 2029, not official statement from Apple but from tech article, which I can't find now. The article below says they believe it will be supported until 2028.

Apple officially supports repairs for up to 5 years from last sale of product. That puts you at the end of 2028 assuming they stop selling the 14 Pro for 1 year (they discontinue Pro models after 1 year, continue selling the regular models for several years). They may continue to support software updates after that point in time, or they may not.

It's a good bet a 14 Pro would be supported into 2029 or even 2030 if Apple maintains it's current release cycles. I.E. Apple still is selling the iPhone 12, so that means it will have at least 5 more years of support. The iPhone 12 was released over 2 years ago so that means it has 7+ years of Apple support available. If they continue selling the regular iPhone 14 into 2024, that means they will be supported until 2029. I assume the 14 Pro will be supported as well.
