Until the next X is out
What would entice you get an X2 specifically ? Just it's general existence ?
till the Y comes out
At least two years.
Unless the X Plus is released next year.
X Plus will have everyone flipping out again next year. Apple has it figured out.
Given the nature of this forum, I suspect that many people are just compelled to have the newest phone.
I am not one of those people. I won’t replace my phone until I feel that a new one can offer something significant over the one I already have. That’s why I got a good three years out of my 6.
until the next iPhone...like many macrumor members
For real, they’re such a machine. It’s gonna be like getting the plus model for the first time all over again.
You're a smart consumer !
6plus to 6s plus was totally tangible
6s plus to 7Plus too but less so but I appreciated putting the prototype back look to rest with matte black and P3 screen/dual-ish speakers and dual cams
Couldn't justify 8 anything. Too incremental
The X feels fresh at least. Hopefully I can stay strong too, assuming I keep the X
Since I pay in full, at least two years. I’ll pass it on to a family member when I upgrade.
Probably 18 months, maybe 2 years.
Until next year
Most likely a Year and I will probably pass the X down to my wife next year.
That's always a thought handing down my 7+ to someone on 6s plus in my family assuming
A) they want it
B) I'm willing to forego a JAILBROKEN plus phone
I doubt the B part
I have a JAILBROKEN SE I swap/use sometimes/always have as a backup.
Served me well between selling 6s plus and getting 7+
This, unless something major changes.
I’ve only not upgraded once; iPhones are my indulgence. My laptop is seven years old!
Last phone I had jailbroken was my iPhone 5 so for me that's not remotely important but I understand how tough that would be if you use it regularly.
My wife is using a 7 right now so the X will be a nice upgrade for her even next year so it works out well for me.
I too have had all iPhones EXCEPT
I skipped 5s knowing Touch ID would be in my next phone and 8 since it feels incremental especially alongside X Ans still dang expensive. But I still bought and later returned the 5s / 8 after a few days
Going 7Plus to 8plus 128 to 64 would feel wrong. Same body and half storage and no jailbreak for essentially same thing and hassle of buy sell and screen lottery. NO WAY! Makes such little sense for my use case
I don't even need 128 turns out and can settle for an new body and little bezel and OLED and second cam OIS and wireless charging now standard effective 2017

It really has presented a predicament but will as the hardware ages further and further out and jb releases become rarer and rarer or non existent all together at this point
7+ is still quite modern by all accounts. That's another reason I don't *need* a X but lust for something new

3 years at least. $1200 for a phone is plenty, maybe even into 4 years
Yeah I hear ya.
The 8 Plus doesn't feel like an upgrade at all... to be really worthy it needs the A11 Bionic and 3GB RAM like the X has...
Oh wait a sec... oops!
The experience is so good on 7Plus that the benchmark impressiveness doesn't play into actual use for me whatsoever.
X is a different experience completely
Even if it had A10 and 3gb and were unchanged from 7Plus internals
PLUS 8plus is notably heavier from 7Plus
Jailbreak heavily outweighs the internal bump in my case
Depends what they release in 2018. If just a "S" type line then not upgrading. If some kind of a X Plus larger device then probably upgrading.
I suspect from the rumors of a larger Plus type device next year, and the fact that they can go up in device size slightly to the current Plus dimensions but still get a massive 6" or more screen in, that there will be some type of Plus device in the next year or 2.
I'm absurdly curious about 2018
I think XS or XII OR X2 or whatever you want to call it is a given. An S-cycle of the X.
Would they really abandon a design a year in?
But what will come of those big bezel classic iPhones? Will they be updated with
Or massive price drop to X size and co release a X plus? And make these the standard and only
But this would Price out so many people unless they just sold 8 series cheap and as the affordable option. Like how people are flocking to 7 for the savings rn
One year for me...probably 10 months as I think that next year, Apple to go back to September releases
I upgrade my apple watch and iPhones to every year, but my macbook and iPad has closer to 2-4 year cycle.
