    hmm. My first (and only) iPhone has been the 5s. I like some others, but not enough to buy one.
    New iPhones hold no significance for me to get a new one just because it is new.
    I got the 5s only because I was ready to move from my old LG Touch :D
    So, I have pretty much skipped all others.
    Likely I will buy another. I will probably be ready to replace the 5s in another couple of years, maybe 3.
    I tend to replace phones after 5 and 6 years.
    I don't think I can link that (somehow) to Tim Cook, as he is not my 'leader'.
    I guess you need to re-evaluate your supposed need to replace your devices every time a new one is released.
    That's not something that has ever interested me.

    I've had the following iPhones:

    3Gs
    4s
    5s
    6+

    My next phone may be an iPhone or it may be an Android phone. It depends on what is available when it is time to replace my iPhone 6+.

    Considering this is another thread based on bashing Apple and the current leadership, I'm going to recommend that the gates to the Wasteland stay open for its second new move-in today.

    Original --> 3GS --> 5 --> SE for me.
    412MHz/128MB --> 600MHz/256MB --> 1.3GHzDC/1GB --> 1.8GHzDC/2GB

    I generally skip two generations and pick up the third. By that time there've been a few CPU/GPU generations and at least one RAM doubling, so it makes the upgrade worth it.

    Your knowledge, insight, and extrapolations on the matter are astounding.

    I still have my first one the 3GS but it is relegated to MP3 player for the car. The next one I had was a iPhone 4 from work and then a 5S from work. My work phone is still a 5S. My personal phone is a 6 Plus. I skipped the 6S and intend to skip the 7. Maybe next year I'll get the 7S iPhone to replace the 5S.

    Not sure what good leader he's talking about.
    Everyone buys whatever they feel like purchasing or whatever they can afford or works better for them.

    We are in 2016. Almost anything "amazing" or "magical" has already been done with Smartphones. Don't get your hopes up for a surprise. There won't be one.

    I've had the 3GS (2012 to early 2013), the 4 (Early 2013 to Early 2014) and the 5 (Early 2014 to now). Looks like the 5 will be my last if Apple removes the headphone port or perhaps late next year I'll get an SE and that will be my last.

    The 5C and SE were lower-priced-non-flagship phones. If you count those then you have to say that you didn't re-buy the 3G in 2009 and you didn't re-buy the 3GS in 2010, etc.

    Which is, of course, stupid to say which is why you didn't do it. But that means you can't count the 5C and SE either.

    So by scrubbing those two from the list you're left with a thread telling us that you've skipped 1 model...that comes out this fall.

    In other words, this is a thread telling us you've yet to skip an iPhone.

    The last iPhone i bought was 4, then I took my brothers 4s and after that my father 5 which I still use. Don't know if I'll go for 7 if a new MacMini goes out.

    Pretty much what he said above. What is left to be announced that would be a big surprise or magical?
    Marginal updates and improvements. Slightly better/faster hardware, slightly thinner/lighter devices with slightly better battery life. Water resistance maybe.

    You've got all the main flagship phones, and as such you were never the target audience for 5C and SE anyways.

    The reason they're on your list is because Apple is now putting some focus on lower-end options.

    You haven't skipped a main flagship phone yet, only predicting that you're gonna skip the 7 later in the year.
