    For those with iphone 6 or iphone 6 plus , do you plan to get iphone 6s when it's released ? ( rumor of more ran , better camera ) , or will you use your iPhone 6 for two or more years ?

    No.

    I'll keep the 6 for 3+ years, like the iPhone 4 before it.

    Nope, I typically keep it for the entire contract so I can buy the newer one on subsidy.

    I'm on the full price bandwagon. Apple products in general retain a good deal of their value therefore I can usually sell last years model and get into the new one for close to on contract pricing. Sometimes I even do the buy sell trade dance (buying iPhones when they pop up for good deals) on Craigslist and cover the entire cost of upgrading. :apple: and then I get to enjoy all the benefits of the newest tech #

    Nope, I will keep my 6 Plus until it no longer functions and then I will buy the latest and the greatest at that time. :D

    I also do the buy at full price. It cost about $200-$300 tops to upgrade yearly.

    Nope! Been down this road enough now that I don't see anything earth shattering coming with the update that I can't wait and get with the next gen which will have a newer form factor with the updated features. My current 6/6 plus does all I need it to do.

    As the 6+ is crippled by the lack of RAM I'll be upgrading mine to the 6S, if not before. If Apple had given me two or three gigs of RAM then I would keep my 6+ for two years. Sadly they didn't.

    Yes, as soon as possible.

    I can't wait to get rid of this rather buggy flimsy iP6_Plus and get into the upcoming replacement no matter how minor the upgrades might be.

    At a bare minimum knowing Apple, they'll silently make it stronger and less buggy. Anything beyond that is just fine.

    I buy my mom a new iPhone every year because it is not too expensive given the high resale value. I use her upgrade on "s" years and pay full price on "non-s" years.

    For the 16GB models, getting her a new phone each year, I have a total OOP cost of $900 every 2 years since 1 of the devices is subsidized.

    I have been able to net around $300 for each 1 year old used device (16GB models) b/c my mom keeps them in good shape. So $900-$600 = $300/2 = $150 per year for the phones.

    I got the 6+, but honestly I still use my iPad if I want the big screen. I will probably get the smaller version of the 6S once it comes out.

    I plan to get the 6s (mostly to upgrade from 64GB to the highest capacity available) but I'm gonna wait for the factory unlocked model to be released.

    Not enough earth shattering new features to make it worth an upgrade.

    Of course, unless you have money to throw at apple, in that case go right for it.

    If 3D or something is the highlight feature than no. My eyes won't work with it anyway.

    On what basis? It's a mythical as yet unannounced product. You can't possibly know that.

    I've got the 5S currently and I've been debating on switching to the 6.. but then I remembered that the 6 has the same amount of RAM that my 5S does.. so I might just wait and get the 6S.

    same. not really sure how people on subsidized contracts manage to get new phones every year.

    i like getting the new design every two years, so S cycle which i used to be on isnt really appealing. love my 6, will be excited for the 7.

    I have a 6+. I'll wait for the 7S. I want to go back on the "S" cycle. I did have my 4S for 4 years so I'm sure I can live with my 6+ for 3 years.

    I'll probably sell my 6+ and upgrade to the 6s+, but who knows.

    Nope.. I'm on a Single Version e.g. 4>5>6>7 etc... if I did 6S upgrade then it would be $215 out pocket + Full retail tax upgrade price + phone trade-in = 300 or so for me to "upgrade" ... vs Phone trade-in + upgrade tax on new phone = 80 to 110 out pocket ..

    Based on the historical releases of "S" and "C" variants. Now if Apple changes their trends then I will be truly surprised and I would consider upgrading.
