    I've had my iPhone 6 for 2 years now and while i've got a 7 ordered, I'm not not sure if I should just keep my 6 for another year.

    For those that are upgrading from a 6 to a 7, why?

    I dunno, but do you have any other hard life decisions that you would like to run past us too?

    Don't forget the Cameras, 3D Touch, haptic feedback and fast Touch ID, and battery.

    I have a 6, skipped the 6S and have preordered a 7 Plus:

    - chickened out of going Plus last time, now see the benefit of a bigger screen
    - was underwhelmed by peek & pop initially, but now IOS10 makes that more interesting
    - camera is a worthwhile upgrade for me, I use it a lot
    - water resistance is a step forward
    - I like the matte Black

    Certainly not 'a need', but definitely 'a want' after two-years, I wouldn't have bothered going from a 6S to a 7.

    Oh oh me too, me too! Can I make a thread with "Anyone upgrading from a 5s"? I was in the same situation when the 6 released, but it didn't give me enough good reasons to upgrade.

    Reasons to upgrade from 5s to 6:
    -bigger screen
    -better battery life
    -and uhh...that's it... I guess...

    The 6 is just a bigger 5s with a new form factor basically...

    But now things have changed!
    Reasons to upgrade from 5s to 7:

    -bigger screen
    -much better battery life
    -faster Touch ID
    -3D Touch
    -Pressure sensitive home button
    -haptic feedback
    -much better screen
    -much better camera
    -much better processor
    -stereo speakers
    -water resistent
    -new color
    -new design (coming from 5s)
    -Apple Pay
    -32GB starting storage

    That's now kinda worthy for me...

    Upgrading from 6+ 64GB space gray to 7+ 128GB in silver.

    My 6+ has served me well but the constant reloading of tabs in safari due to limited ram was becoming a little annoying.

    Yeah I'm real tired of that after two years now. Man it's hard to believe the plus has been in my hands for 2 years in a way though. People still ask me if its the "big iPhone" sometimes. But not everyone is a tech junky like us on the forums here.

    I'm upgrading from a 6S+. Do I NEED to? Probably not in the grand scheme, but I want to, there are enough new features to make it exciting and different, it's the only camera I use so I always go for the improvement of the camera, and if I can afford to do it, why wouldn't I?

    Upgrading from my six because I'm tired of carrying a phone the size of the plus (but thicker) because my battery is bad. I almost got the plus but as a everyday phone I think it is too big for me. The 7 seems like the right size.

    I'm upgrading from a 6 as well. Was initially going to skip it, but after the free iPhone 7 offer from AT&T, I went for it. Should be a pretty solid upgrade!

    I think I will upgrade but my biggest concern is that, with the new upgrade processes, I am afraid to touch my plan because I have managed to keep my unlimited data with AT&T. So, I am going to make absolutely sure whatever I do, I get the new 7+ and keep my unlimited data plan. Otherwise I am waiting until the iPhone 8. Unlimited Data is more important to me that this particular upgrade

    On a 6plus and due for an upgrade, I get a new one every other year since the first one. I am sitting this one out as I am hoping next year for the 10th anniversary they will completely change the design. I am hoping for no forehead and no chin, one sheet of glass please.

    i was wondering the same, especially after the rumors about the next year model. However, I've always updated every two year since the first iPhone. It's become so much a tool for my day to day life that I budget it like an utility in my yearly expenses :)

    I have a 6 and arrived to work at 8:15 this morning with 55% battery life. So yeeeeeah, I'm upgrading. I could replace the battery I guess but why?

    I'm upgrading from a 6+ 64GB to a regular 7 128GB. The plus is just too big for me, and now that the smaller model has optical image stabilization, I'm sold.

    I'm moving from a 6+ (64GB) to a 7 Regular (128GB).

    Faster overall speed
    Better camera
    Better display
    Water resistant
    Force Touch
    More RAM
    Easier to handle size

    I take a lot of pictures and thought about going Plus again for the dual camera but I recently bought a Canon G7XII and will let it carry the load instead.

    I'm going from a 6 to 7.
    Battery is a big reason. I go to bed at 90% wake up at 40%. My own fault for charging too much, but after 4 iphones, that's a habit I can't break. The camera is another reason. Faster processor? Only as fast as my internet connection - I find. I've second guessed since ordering, but I just want it.

    on 6+ 128Gb
    not going to upgrade because of:
    - same design, battery life, almost identical display, pretty much all the same
    - camera and 3gb RAM are cool, but they alone cannot justify migration to 7+
