    They are really good about creating hype. Only you can decide. The 40% faster, etc. sounds nice, but will you actually notice a difference if you have a 6S or better? I personally think not.

    I think for anyone using a 6 or older will definitely notice though.

    The power of the CPU and the better camera are compelling to me. I use the device many times per day, so any performance improvement is felt multiple times per day. I've switched to wireless headphones already as well. With upgrade plan, cost would be about a $1.20 per day. It is something, but it really isn't much money.

    Obviously getting Jet Black if I buy one. I can't fit into 32gb storage anyway.

    I'm most pissed that they are having 2 presales on the same night AND it's a work night! They can't manage the presales of just one device (i.e. just phone or just watch)... how the hell are their servers going to manage phones and watches? jackholes!

    There are people who took off work just to watch the keynote. I'm sure they know their customers don't care if it's a work/school night

    I am certainly pre-ordering based on the features and improvements. This keynote had less hype than I have seen in years.

    Use the apple store app. Been using it since they introduced it without issue.

    The upgrade didn't feel substantial for me because I rarely use the built in speakers, and the camera is always improving in increments every model (7s will have better camera-watch!). The only cool thing is the home button being force touch now.

    Today's most used phrase - "Best ever in an iPhone."

    Thank you Apple, at a MINIMUM we should expect what's in the current iPhone to be better than what's in an old iPhone.

    I've only ever had iPhones but come on Apple, how about we strive for simply - "Best ever."

    I guess that's Apple's MO though, take what we had before and make it a little better. It certainly works for them.

    Decent update, I'm not as hard on them as some people. I think most people just can't get past the looking the same.

    Hype is thick, and Apple the mobile CPU extraordinaire company has incrementally moved the bar forward. IDK if the 7 or series 2 watch is enough for me to punch my ticket or not. It's way more that is a little more in practice. I feel like Apple fit a nuclear bomb in a gum drop. I kind of wanted ice cream.

    I'm one of those zealots who waited from 3AM to 10AM in the cold to get an iPhone 3GS and the 4 and the 5 and the 6 and I'm passing on this one.

    I was hoping to be hyped-in today. I was yearning for an excuse to be the first in the office with the newest bestest iPhone. There's nothing here except a dongle and two shades of black. What has become of Apple, sad really.
