    I'm starting boarding school soon so my parents want me to finally get a phone but I'm not sure wether to wait for the iphone 6s or just get the 6 now. I think I can get the 6s delivered to my school from being pre-ordered but is it worth the extra 2 months? I know its faster, has a better camera but what else makes it better than the current iPhone?

    Until the Official specs are released through the  Keynote it's just not known what the next iPhone will bring to the table.

    Lots of rumours and design leaks to fuel the fire !

    Some will say ”wait“ and some will say go for the 6 or 6+

    Go with your gut feeling.

    The main new features of the iPhone 6s will be:
    - A9 chip with LPDDR4 RAM.
    - Way better camera, and a 5MP front facing one.
    - Force Touch technology.
    - Faster networking.
    - Better battery life.
    - More resistant shell.

    Just leased the 6 at TMobile, and waiting for the free upgrade to 6S when it comes. Love the 6. Easy peasy. Faster than my Samsung Galaxy S4, that's for sure. Quite zippy in fact.

    Wait unless your parents insist you get a phone now (and pay for it).

    If your parents are buying it for you and want you to have one before you start school you don't have much of a choice as the 6S won't be out then.Talk to them and see if they are ok with you waiting to get the newer phone, if they are it would be nice to get a 6S or get a 6 when they drop the price after the 6S is released.

    This seems like the best route to take.

    If you can get the phone sent to your school, then I'd definitely wait for the iPhone 6s. If you've lived without an iPhone this long, then you'll have little problem waiting a little longer. You'll feel cooler having the newer phone, and you'll get more bang for your buck.

    Wait. I always say this in 'should I wait' threads, because last years phone, so the 6, will be cheaper, in case the 6S doesn't satisfy you.
    Plus, if you have the newest phone at school, you'll be the boss.

    Honestly just wait 2 more months. August will go by quick. If you were 4 or 6 months out I would say don't wait. You'll appreciate have brand new tech in 2 months as a opposed to 1 year old tech.
