Not excited for September

Usually I am ready for every Iphone upgrade, but this September I will definitely be on the sidelines. I really like my Iphone 6. I put an AirCharge wireless charging case on it and I really can't see anything that Apple will do in September that will make me purchase a new Iphone. Force touch, a better processor, even slightly better screen resolution just don't do it for me. I think they will probably sell a lot of Iphone 6S, but not nearly as many as the Iphone 6.

I see where you are coming from, but would like to see what Apple announces before I decide if it's worth it to upgrade.

I've been looking forward to September 2015 ever since September 2014.

I'm itching to upgrade from my 5S that I've had since launch day in September 2013.

Coming from the 5S I'll be looking to jump to a 6S+

Bigger screen, more RAM, faster processor, improved touch id sensor, VoLTE, apple pay, and whatever iOS 9 brings.

Sign me up!

I'm on the S cycle. I might have jumped to the 6 last year if they'd done the smaller version. Now that it seems they're done with the small ones for good, I'll go to the 6S cause I'm ready to upgrade. Two years seems to be a long time with one phone!

Doesn't every iPhone outsell the previous one.

Yes that has been the case since the first iPhone.

I'm personally excited to see what the 6S brings. I have a 6+ now and already know I'm upgrading. I just haven't decided whether it will be the 6S or 6S+. Have to really think and weigh the advantages/disadvantages of each size.

Same here. If the 6S+ has the same specs as the 6S, then the 6S will be the more powerful phone. Having been stung with this same spec thing with my 6+, and coupled with the portability (size) issues, I may get the 6S. However, if the 6S+ is a veritable powerhouse then I'll no doubt stick with the form factor due to the battery life and loudspeaker positives.

Well it's sounding like force touch will be a big deal which might mean that developers will start including force touch functions in their apps. if you don't have the 6S, then you can't use those functions.

I had the 6 and ultimately went back to my 5s. If Apple sticks with the 5.5" and 4.7" screen options, I'll probably just hold on to my 5s. While the 4.7" screen wasn't a terrible experience, I just prefer the 4" screen more.

I'm always here cited for September.

Even if I'm not planning on upgrading then it's always exciting to see what's new. And to be honest, I think that most of this Apple Watch Adoration is directly linked to the drought of Apple news we've been living through.

- New MacBook is not the Air we were looking for
- No 5k news.
- No Apple TV.
- No new OS goodies.
- No Homekit.
- IOS continues to be awesomely yet incremental.

Heck, I fell into the hype and bought 3 watches simply because I haven't bought anything for so long. (Thank goodness for the high resale value)

I´m very excited, comming from a Lumia 830 (big ********g mistake), i can´t wait.
Same here with my BlackBerry Z10. I'm actually leaning towards the 6 Plus when it's cheaper, and if they are still selling it then

With every release there are those who are excited and those who aren't.

Good, then you won't have to drop the cash to buy a new iPhone.

You're happy with what you have, and you make it seem like this is a bad thing, by being sad at "not being excited for September".

I guess I understand, you always want new iPhones, you always want Apple to continually release products for you to buy, but why wouldn't you be happy about having a phone that you like now, to the extent that you feel you wouldn't need to upgrade in September?

I like Apple products and I know there's a certain "suspension of disbelief" you need to participate on these forums, but I'll really never understand this kind of attitude.

If Apple has kept you excited about a singular product release for the previous 7 years I think they've accomplished more than any other company I can think of.

Well I really want a gold 6 plus as I never really liked my space grey 6 plus. However I need more than a colour change to justify an upgrade. I's be looking for an improvement in the camera to get it on the level of the galaxy S6. That would make me pull the trigger. Anything else would be a bonus. However I'll wait and see.

I always look forward to seeing what announcements come from Apple this time of year, whether I'm planning on buying a new phone or not. My 4s lasted me three years and I'm thinking my 6 will last about the same. Almost a year in so far and no problems at all.

Doesn't this discussion get old? Anyone? It's the same every single year. The only thing that changes is the text after the word iPhone.

You'll have that one guy who is "still satisfied" with an iPhone from three years ago, and another guy who buys a new phone every three months because he has a disorder with not having the absolute latest piece of glass and plastic. It's so predictable.

I'm excited to see what's new, but i'm not expecting anything big. I'm pumped to see the iPhone 7 or whatever it will be called.

I'll say I am looking forward to (hopefully) September. My 4s will be 4 years old come November. I haven't minded having the same phone for, what now is 3.5 years. It works, I just wish I had 128gb of storage and a faster processor. I will say my 4s has been a testament that Apple products last. Not even my Nextel phones lasted this long. I hope my next iPhone will last nearly 4 years as well. :apple:

I'm pretty excited. Well, at the very least excited to see what its all about. September is always a good time for iPhone fans.

I picked up an iPhone 6 on launch day, but was not very satisfied with the tech, and after 4-5 months of using it, I sold it and am glad I did. Was too much for what I felt was a marginal upgrade over the 5s, screen size and redesign aside (though I did find it very comfortable to hold, I did enjoy wifi ac, and I did appreciate the excellent camera).

In hindsight, perhaps it was iOS 8 that soured me on the experience. I couldn't even put the display in landscape mode without it lagging or not responding. So perhaps I never got to see most issues resolved (I believe I sold the 6 when 8.1.3 had just been released or was out for a few weeks). But the 1GB was a big disappointment. I didn't have too many issues with Safari page reloading until I had more than 3-4 tabs open and running another app or two in the background. That was painful when trying to multitask.

From that perspective, for me, the 6s looks to be a solid upgrade should I choose to go with it. Force touch is intriguing and may change the way we interact with smart phones. I am looking forward to seeing how well the new camera compares and also if the "A9" is a marked improvement over the somewhat disappointing A8.

I am still reserving judgment as many others are with respect to upgrading, but if the tech is a big enough jump (and the "S" models usually are) I may bite the bullet because I was a fan of the 6 phone case design. Put in a new black colour and I am more than likely to take the plunge!

Either way, irrespective of my decision to actually purchase the 6s or not, I am nonetheless excited for September!
