The iPhone XR has officially arrived in stores, and if you’re like me, it may have gotten you thinking: Should I upgrade? 

There’s plenty to like about the iPhone XR as someone who owns an older iPhone. Its price point, while high, isn’t scary high — $750 is a lot easier to justify than $999. I use an iPhone 6s, and what’s kept me from upgrading the last few years is the absolutely insane expense of purchasing a new iPhone. 

And for the first time in a long time, an iPhone comes in fun colors. And not just a few colors, but a lot of colors. 

Plus, and I think this is the biggest perk for me, the camera is expected to be very good — a truly noticeable upgrade from older phones like the iPhone 6. 

But if you’re upgrading from an older phone — an iPhone 5S, an iPhone 6, an iPhone 6S, or even an iPhone 7 — you’re going to have to prepare yourself for a lot of changes ahead. The iPhone has evolved a lot in the last five years, and even in the last two years, which means you may have to adjust to a rather foreign-feeling device. 

Here’s everything you should know before upgrading to the iPhone XR from an older iPhone.
