    Now we now exact (Well unsure about the RAM), anyone who thought they were upgrading from the 6 to a 6S, are you still?

    I'm a bit underwhelmed tbh this time. Not really much from my current 6. Better camera yes, touch ID - it's great now, 3D touch looks handy, but it's not too hard to open the app instead of shortcut to it.

    Anyone else, I might hold off now?
    Thanks

    **Added poll to ask if you were going to upgrade before announcement, now know details are you still?**

    From 6 Plus to 6S Plus, yes. I wasn't blown away but there's just enough for me to justify it as someone who religiously purchases the new iPhone on a yearly basis.

    if the iPhone Program comes over to the UK ill change from my 6+ to the 6+ s

    I agree with you but only on the iPhone program I'd do it as I'm SIM only at the moment. would be a bonus to have the extra cover as well all tied into one

    I'll be upgrading like I do every year. I always want to have the latest tech.

    I'm coming from Android but also had an iPhone 4. If I was in a position to upgrade from a 6 to the 6s I would totally do it. For me the camera and better efficiency is what I look for in a phone. I think 3d touch is going to make my day to day phone activities easier and seamless. Also I see me having the 6slinger than the 6 because of durability.

    Yes I'm getting the 6S and selling my iPhone 6. This is not a needed upgrade but it's more of a want for me. I like the 3D Touch and I have the money to spend so I am.

    I wouldn't advise friends or non enthusiasts to buy it. I'd tell em to wait for the iPhone 7.

    It's really that simple guys.

    I'm SIM only to, I always like you, have the latest, but I'm not sure if it's worth the sell of my 6 to get a 6S though?

    The camera is tempting, 8 MP doesn't cut it anymore, but 12 isn't bleeding edge either. They should have gone 16 MP.

    I normally do and, like to have the new tech, camera looks good but not much else.

    Even the 5 to 5S I loved the touchID and that was enough for me to upgrade.

    Not exactly sure what the details are on the upgrade program, it's a 2 year deal? Basically you get 2 iPhones? For equivalent (maybe more when official), for a 64Gb 6 for £25 a month inc applecare+ seems very cheap?

    I think I'll just wait a bit this timex although as a family member getting one I know it'll bug me seeing there "extras" on the S!!!

    As a side, anyone know if the 6 is getting the always on "Hey Siri" ?

    I think I'm right in saying the below for the iPhone Program.

    For example you could get an iPhone 6s+ 64gb for £40 p/m for 2 years (no upfront cost).

    You're then getting a unlocked iPhone which you would then go to a carrier of your choice and get a SIM only deal.

    One year later the new iPhone comes out and you literally just swap your old for new and carry on with your SIM only deal with the carrier.

    If it is £40 that means 40x12=480
    My SIM only plan is £20 that mean 20x12=240
    Total of 720

    Which is £30 more then buying the iPhone outright, the bonus is that I then get Apple Care + for £30 when its cost £120

    I think that correct....


    As for 'Hey Siri' not sure if it will come in iOS 9

    Just be aware that you won't "own" the phone when you go for the Apple sponsored iPhone. If you upgrade a year later, you will be turning your phone in for the upgrade.

    If you buy outright, then you get to sell it - the money earned from the sale can (in part) fund the next purchase.

    As long as AT&T is still offering two year contracts when October 3rd rolls around and my extra $10 a month dumb phone line I have on my account's eligibility is available, I'll be upgrading. Do so every year.

    Anyone finding good sale prices for the iPhone 6? Right now Gazelle in Good condition is $301, which I'm happy with

    If you can't justify it, then keep your iPhone 6 which is still an excellent phone.

    Correct basically like purchasing a car over finance, minus the deposit (upfront cost) and interest.

    I'm happy to effectively have the iPhone loaned to me then own if I'm going to be swapping every year.

    I guess if you decide one year not to upgrade and continue paying the last year it would be yours at the end of the 2 years? Or maybe a clause were you pay £30 for it to be owned by you.

    For someone like yourself, all they would need to change is the number.

    I'm probably going to wait for the 7. In the past, I've usually upgraded every second year. Last year was the only exception, when I went from the 5S to a 6 Plus for the larger screen.

    Are you sure on the size? Is it more for the bigger screen or the fact of the "S" features?

    I was thinking of going from a 6 to a 6S plus, but still unsure on the physical size of it for carrying around....

    I own a 6+ personally for me a day or two after using I was fine, you'll adjust very quickly!

    I was concerned about the overall size of the 6 Plus when I got it. However, I typically carry my iPhone in a sport coat, lab coat, or shirt pocket, and I've rarely been in a situation without at least one pocket large enough to accommodate it. Any slight disadvantage has been far outweighed by the advantage of the larger display, which I love having.

    I like the bigger screen as well as the S feature

    It's a little bit inconvenience using with one hand. but still fit my pocket, and it's worth going.

    Yeah plus

    Think will keep edge as a backup when selling and also I like using it for some stuff you can't do on iphone. Although I'm quite tired into apple now with ipad, Macbook pro and soon iphone

    Love how it all syncs
