    I'm really happy with the format of the 6+ and will definitely keep that form factor going forward. I won't upgrade if there's just a minor speed/camera update or a sapphire screen, etc., but Apple has a way of including some "must have" feature.....so I can only decide once I know what's new. The 4S got Siri, the 5S got 64 bit and TouchID. Siri didn't make me upgrade....but the TouchID did and 64bit was a bonus.

    6+ owner here; will wait for 7, only if the design strikes me, otherwise I'll upgrade when 7S launches.

    I bought my 6 plus outright to save my upgrade which is due this summer. I doubt ill upgrade though unless the 6s brings something to the table other than more ram. Ill probably wait for the 7.

    No, I am really, really happy with my 6 +. I will wait for the 7 or the 7s.....depending on what the 7 brings. It would take a lot to be any better for me. I would have stayed with the 5 except I needed a larger screen.....at 54, the near field eyesight is not what it used to be......

    Most likely will wait until the 7. Whatever new features they put in the 6s will be in the 7 and it will have a new form factor. My phone does all I need it to do now so I can wait.

    Got the 6+ in December. I will almost definitely upgrade as long as there is some meaningful improvement over the 6+ (more RAM or some new feature).

    Apple should release an iPhone 7 this year skipping 6S altogether.

    2GB RAM, 2X CPU, 3X GPU performance (over iPhone 6), 50% reduced bezels and 10% increased thickness will mean so much to everyone.

    Nope. I got on the non-S release schedule.

    I was perfectly happy using the 5 even when the 5S was released.

    Usually non-S releases are just upgraded guts/camera, so you don't really miss too much. The 5S was the exception where they introduced new hardware/functionality with TouchID. Even then, I didn't feel like I was missing too much.

    I don't expect the 6+S to have any new hardware/functionality. Just upgraded guts/camera.

    Even if they improve the fingerprint scanner, my current one works fine enough where I can wait until the 7.

    Not at all

    Upgraded to the 6Plus because of the screen size / camera. Opted for going back under contract which so far has not been bad. AT&T doesn't like it because of the old grand fathered plans.

    I do have a mint 5 16GB unlocked in the drawer for

    I bought my phone on subsidy, I see no reason whatsoever to upgrade to next year's iPhone.

    I usually get ever new iPhone but I am quite happy with my 6+ and they will have to show me something really improved. Either way I will likely end up with the 6S:rolleyes:

    When the article about the RAM upgrade was posted, I had a knee-jerk annoyance that there was another feature I wish I had. But, actually, I feel nothing toward the next model. I'll be skipping it, and maybe, just maybe, I may wait for the 7S. Who knows.

    I doubt I will. Unless there is some must have new feature then I'll wait until the iPhone 7 when my contract will have expired and get a free upgrade.

    The 6S plus would have to have very compelling features to make me upgrade.

    Definetly. The team limitation is pathetic and hate those reloading tabs. Otherwise very satisfies with the phone

    I'll definitely be keeping the 6 Plus and will wait for the 7.

    Very unlikely. I have no problems at all with my current 6 Plus, the screen is a nice, even color, no crashes, etc. Perhaps next time they make a major design change, but I really doubt I will upgrade this time around.

    Well with 2 year contracts it's not that simple to upgrade every year. :D

    Even with some people on installment billing plans it makes no sense to upgrade every year. Apple generally does small updates each year. After 3 years when I went from my 4S to my 6 Plus it was a nice upgrade. Sure the OS was roughly the same but the 6 Plus itself is amazing so I won't be upgrading until 2 more iterations of the iPhone.

    On another note, why do people keep assuming the next version going to be called the "6S"? Past versions may give off that impression but Apple's naming scheme has changed since Steve Jobs. No point in assuming. I didn't expect the 6 Plus to be called "Plus".

    I have the 6 too and think the 4.7" is the sweet spot for me. Keep it at 4.7;)

    Yes. I update yearly. I see no reason not to have the latest model.
