    For the record this is my opinion after purchasing the "solid number" models(5 and then 6 Plus). So I currently have a 6 plus that I purchased used from Swappa in October 2014. I was going to upgrade to the new 7+ but I realized that I will just buy a used 6S+ and wait for 7s+ because when a new form factor is released it takes a significant amount of time before the best cases are available (i.e.; Lifeproof,Mophie etc). I really got tired of just buying whatever was out and waiting as my favorite companies had Coming Soon signs up for many months after a new solid model is released. I just bought the Lifeproof Frē for my 6+ and that just came out recently. So now I'll just get a used 6s+ in September from Swappa for a great price in great condition and shift to "s" model upgrade cycle. Also I pay full price for my devices so that I can keep my Verizon unlimited data plan. Just wanted to share my thoughts folks.

    I hate cases. Despise them, never use them. And no case is ever going to prevent me from upgrading.

    I much prefer the outward refresh so will stay on the number model upgrade path (last year was an anomaly).

    As I stated in the other thread you posted in, if you put a 6/6+ next to a 6s/6s+ who's to know what you have (other than color, Rose Gold being for the 6s/6s+)?

    You put your 6s+ down next to my 7 (when it comes out) and it will be immediately obvious who has the 6s+ and who has the 7.
