    I've seen a surprising number of people upgrading from 6s/6s+ and I'm curious if there are many people upgrading on an annual basis.

    I upgraded from the galaxy s7 and couldn't be happier, a lot better performance, battery life is way better I had to charge my galaxy 2-3 times a day, I never had an iPhone before this one but I wish I wouldn't of waited so long to switch to one.

    Upgraded from the 6s+ I'm on Verizon's iPhone Forever plan so I get annual upgrades. What device are you coming from?

    Do you automatically get on the iPhone forever plan? Cause I'm also on Verizon.

    I'm coming from a 6+. I wish we had an annual upgrade program out here, but at least used iPhones are fairly easy to sell.

    I love my regular 7 this is my first iPhone, I got the matte black because of the scratching of the jet black.

    I believe if you purchased a 6s/6s+ or the 7/7+ with their payment plan then you should be a part of it automatically.

    I go from iPhone 6 128GB to iPhone 7+ 256GB
    Son goes from iPhone 6+ 16GB to my old iPhone 6 128GB
    Wife goes from iPhone 5 64GB to sons old iPhone 6+ 16GB (She uses the phone for the odd game, that's all, so wants the bigger screen)
    Daughter still has iPhone 5S 16GB and uses it mostly for this new form of voice communication that I have never seen on mobile devices - she call it "phone calls".

    Coming from 6s, I wasn't really planning on purchasing it unless I got the bigger size because of the dual lens and even then...I was wary of a larger phone for my small hands.

    But I checked and they had a plus size Sunday, in both rose gold (my 6s color) and matte black in the GB i usually get (64, or 7's version of 64, 128).

    Was in and out in less then 10 minutes.

    Took it as a sign that it was meant to be.

    If you're on Verizon I think you automatically get on the iPhone forever once you purchase a 7/7+ with their payment plans so you might be in luck! I found the resale values for me have dropped like crazy since most people are now just using payment plans through Apple or their carriers now but I'm glad it's still working fine for you :)

    Samsung S7 and so far I'm loving the iPhone 7, before the Samsung I had the SE but when the novelty wore off it was too small so figured I'd go for the Samsung until the 7 came out.

    I'm in Singapore - so far none of the three carriers here offering such a service - if they did, I'd jump on it!

    Strange that people from 6S or even 6 are upgrading especially if they don´t have one of those upgrade programs.

    Well its the , almost, same for factor and the 6s or 6 are still fantastic phones, I am upgrading from an iPhone 5 and It will be a major upgrade and I don't intend to upgrade again until either a new design , stunning , or my phone gets slow or breaks.

    I actually notice a huge difference in speed from 6s. 6s is still fantastic, esp at its current price point but you're on a mac fan site ;) so I imagine it's no different from folks who've gotten an iPhone every year prior to this, like 5 and 5s.
