I know we don't know what's going to be released next but do you guys have a general timeframe ?
Normally I upgrade each year and the wife gets the 1 year old phone. However, I am not sure she would be interested in my iPhone 6+ so may need to hold onto the phone for 2 years.
I pay $10 a month to my carrier (Telus in Canada) for an add-on that gives me AppleCare+ while also allowing me to upgrade every year, and I got my iPhone 6 on launch day, so I'll be upgrading a year from then.
I also feel like "S" models tend to have more longevity and fix a lot of problems, so I wouldn't have stuck with the 6 for more than a year either way.
I been upgrading every 2 years; skipping the S models...
upgraded the 4 because I wanted LTE...
upgraded the 5 because I wanted a big screen...
with the 6+ battery being as great as it is and unless something new comes out that I really want/need I may upgrade after 3 years...
When they release the next model.
So...about 10 months now.
I usually upgrade every year but that was when I had an android phone. Now that I have the 6 plus I think I'll upgrade in 2 years.
I can upgrade every year, so I keep my phones for one year.
Every year way since the days of Nokia (when phones were like £200) and or free on contract.
AppleCare+ lasts me for two phones.
usually switch every year or so now.
went from iPhone 2g -> 3gs -> 4 -> 5 -> 5s -> 6+
Every two years when my contract finishes
Exactly two years
Depends what features they offer on the 6+ S. I usually upgrade on the non S models but apple tempted me with the gold 5s last year.
I usually say I won't buy the s model, but end up getting it anyway! So every 12 months
I may get the 6S if it's significantly faster than the 6. If not, I'll keep it until the 7. I was with the 5 for two years and it was still a great phone, so two years is pretty reasonable for me.
2 years. I try to commit to 2 years on these.
Next year Ill have my fall gadget pennies dedicated for an iPad Air 3.
This year was iPhone 6
Last year was iPad Air.
Whenever work decides to upgrade me.
Before my current job, I didn't have a work-provided phone. I went iPhone -> 3G -> 4S. My current employer supplies phones, currently a 5C. That's enough for me to have ditched my personal phone (ported to a Google Voice account, so it rings my work phone.)
My wife has generally been "upgrade as necessary when phone breaks, or newer becomes hand-me-down." She only got an (original) iPhone when I upgraded to the 3G. She then upgraded to a 3G when she lost the original iPhone. Then upgraded to a (used) 4 when the 3G became thoroughly outdated and couldn't run new apps. Then the 4S when I decided my work 5C was sufficient.
So, from past experience, my wife will likely upgrade in another year or two. I have no idea how often my work replaces phones - the 5C was the first time they offered an iPhone, before that it was Blackberries.
Depends on what features come with the next update. If it is just a memory/speed upgrade, camera upgrade, and few small features here and there then I won't upgrade. After all, I did use my iPhone 5 for two full years.
I say until the 7, but there's a rather solid chance I'll end up with a 6s+, or an Android phone by then.
This is my fifth phone in the past year.
At least two years and possible a third if the iPhone 7 doesn't wow me. I kept my 4S three years because the 5S didn't really impress me.
I get a new iPhone on launch day since the iPhone came out. So whenever the next iPhone is available I will have it.
I added AppleCare+ so I'll be good until the iPhone 7. S upgrades aren't worth it in my opinion.
I usually keep a phone for 18-24 months.
