What are you guys planning to buy, iPhone 7S or iPhone Edition (aka iPhone 8/OLED iPhone)? I'm going for a 64GB iPhone Edition, hopefully costs under £1000. According to John Gruber, the pricing for the new phones are rumoured to be:
  • 64 GB 7S: $649
  • 256 GB 7S: $749 - $849
  • 64 GB 7S Plus: $769 - $869
  • 256 GB 7S Plus: $869 - $969
  • 64GB iPhone Edition: $1199 - $1249
  • 256GB iPhone Edition: $1299 - $1399

I don't give a **** about what John Gruber says :mad:. I don't believe iPhone 8 will cost that much. [$1000 last for 64 GB model]

i will not buy if design doesn't change for iPhone 7S. i need a complete redesign with bezel less OLED display, and if iPhone 8 comes with all those design changes i will definitely buy it.

The 64GB iPhone will likely start under a $1000, not over. Gruber also thinks the new iPhone will be labeled the "Pro", which Sounds asinine and is overly used as it is. It's likely going to continue with the numbering system.

Logically. I think the OLED iPhone 8 will only be offered in two storage tiers, with the highest (256 GB) being priced over $1,000.

Question. Why do you need a complete redesign bezel-less OLED display? Wouldn't that be more of a Want?

Wait, they are removing 128gb models? Wtf
Apparently. I guess for the price of 32GB, you'll be getting 64GB and for the price of 128GB, you'll be getting 256GB. They might be doing this to accommodate the OLED iPhone, so perhaps the 64GB OLED iPhone will start at the same price as what the top-of-the-line 256GB iPhone 7 Plus was being sold for at launch.

I will be getting the iPhone 8/Edition or whatever they call it. Going to wait and see what's announced in September but if what the rumours are saying is true then that's what I'll be getting.

no iPhone 8 this year, its an S cycle year.
Have you not seen the rumours and leaks? It will be the 7s, 7s Plus and the iPhone 8, Pro or whatever they call it.

My 6S is STILL doing more than well enough... NO 7, 7S or even 8 for me.

Just nothing there to make my 'phone' more useful for me.
Have to agree that my 6s is still running great and I would be totally happy keeping it if the new iPhones disappoint (in features or price).

Will simply wait and see what this years models bring to the table and make a decision then.

Passing on any new Apple products in 2017. Not enough enhancements to get me excited. Been on the yearly upgrade bandwagon for a while but to me I just am not excited about any of their products in 2017. I'd say the one that could get me to purchase would be Apple Watch. Because I really enjoy making small apps for it, I admit though I hardly use any applications myself. So no iPhone upgrade for me until at the very earliest 2018.

I'll be getting the 64GB Iphone 8. My 6s Plus is still running absolutely fine, but I'm ready for an upgrade, especially if all the rumors pan out.

Apple better name iPhone 8 as iPhone Pro Pro. Because one Pro is not going to convince me enough to buy it.

I don't know what i'll be buying because nothing is confirmed.

We can be reasonably certain there is going to be a reduced bezel, slightly larger than the 7 model - probably the iPhone 8. But we don't know anything with regards pricing and storage tiers.

Based on what's actually been leaked it doesn't even look to me like there'll be a 7s line - we'll see in a few weeks.

After the reveal i'll decide whether to hang on to my 7plus.

I'm unlikely to get any of them, but I can't say until it comes out.
If it's only a new updated/CPU i wont be bothering, its just all got boring and meh when it comes to iPhones..

I will be the first in line to give Apple my money for the lowest tiered iPhone edition, or whatever the premium phone is called.

I didn't vote but the results are interesting.

Originally, the Samsung s8 64gb was $750 usd and the s8+ 64gb was $850. No way will Apple give you anything cheaper than Samsung.

No thanks, this looks very dated.
In some years you'll all get in line when Apple rolls out an Iphone in classical Design. I'm really sure.
There are designs which are timeless, like old porsche's designs, like the Iphone 4s design or the the 5/s/se design. And then there is the design of 6/s/7 and the rumoured iphone 8's Design which might be looking cool at first sight but then soon gets a pain in the ass for a lot of people leading into them giving up their flaggship devices and getting an "outdated" looking SE.

This is something happening in every branch of our life,beginning from fashion/clothing, haircuts, cars, furniture... and much more and everytime its just about making money and getting you into buying stuff which look different from whats currently on the market
[doublepost=1500407688][/doublepost]the rumoured Iphone doesnt look like an iphone anymore and thats sad

I wasn't aware there was an exact way an iPhone should look like. An iPhone could take many forms. It's the fact that it's a phone made by Apple with iOS that makes it an iPhone, not a specific design.

Things change, products move forward. If the main pics of the 8 are to be believed, I'd be very happy with it.

I'm sure there's plenty of people that prefer the smaller SE and that's fine. But the majority of iPhone users prefer the bigger display size of the flagship devices. I'd like to know just how many will people look at the 8 in a few months time and think 'oh no, my phone is such a pain in the ass to look at'.

If in a few years time Apple decide to release a top spec more retro looking phone, I'll weigh up the pros and cons of the device and make a choice.
