    I'm extremely tempted to switch to S cycle this time.

    I already have iPhone 6 but the reason I'm tempted to upgrade are going for bigger screen (6S+) and for 64Gb of storage. My current iP 6 has 16Gb and while it's manageable I still think I need slightly more.

    I'd also get to enjoy 3D touch and new cameras etc.

    Would you upgrade in my situation? From 16Gb iPhone 6 to 64Gb iPhone 6S+.

    I would. You won't be disappointed by the 6s Plus & the 64GB will make you feel better (lol).

    You're gonna get a much better battery, everything that the 6s has, a bigger and sharper screen..

    And I feel like s models are made to last for years without upgrades.

    Just for the fact that your current is only 16GB. I don't know why Apple doesn't start their base models at 32GB... Think I'm having flashbacks of my first iPhone with 8GB.

    You are a victim of Apples lies about 16gb. Upgrade but try out the larger phone and think about storage and how long you will keep the phone. A plus model could be used for years and years even after you stop using it as s phone. Maybe go 128?

    I upgraded from 6+ to the 6S+ and it was a worthy upgrade in my opinion. 2GB of ram makes a world of difference if you use your phone a lot.

    I was exactly like you. Thought about the new features: 3D touch, memory, camera, etc... Once I got my 6S+ I was blown away by the speed. It's just worth it because of the speed.

    PS-sign up for the beta program when you get it, the UI stutters with out the beta

    I upgrade from a 5 to a 6s+. My wife bought a 6 last year and I was super jealous of it. But I wanted to wait because of 2gb ram. I'm so glad I waited and I'm so glad I got the + model. The screen size, battery life and ram are all worth the upgrade. I don't find it too big at all. I can still use it one handed with a strap. I use a ringke slim case. Minimal refreshing of safari. Stays in my pocket just fine. The 6 feels so much smaller compared to the +. My wife remarked how much nicer it is to read on the +.

    By the way. The 6 4.7 outsold the 6 plus 5.5 model by around a 70/30 ratio.

    Clearly the posters on these message board don't represent the general public. Reasons why the 4.7 inch sell better probably are a combination of pricing and form factor.

    I own 6 plus and now 6S plus.

    My wife didn't want the 6 plus last year so I sold hers. She actually still prefers the 5S but that phone was dying on her. So u got her the 6S which she seems to like better than the 6s plus.

    I agree. I upgraded from the 6+ 64gb to the 6s 128gb.

    Your iPhone 6 is in working condition and is paid off. You've already spent a year with it. I would just try to hold out for another year and reach for the iPhone 7, next time maxing out storage.

    I bought the 6s and I find it even faster than my iPad Air 2.

    Yeah, this is the option that makes the most sense. However, it's still almost a year till iPhone 7. And chances are iPhone 7 is just redesigned iPhone 6S just like the 6 was basically redesigned 5S.

    If I upgrade to 6S now I could wait for 7S or even 8 for the next upgrade.

    Haha. If you really want to buy the 6S now, go ahead! There are equal chances that the 7 could be a mind blowing upgrade as it could just be another mindless "evolution". We do not know. Given that, it makes financial sense to keep a functional paid off phone as long as you can. However, if you "want" that new shiny gadget, and you can afford it, then you do not need to ask anyone - just go get it.

    If you're chafing at your phone's limitations, go try out the new models at the Apple Store.

    The 6s+ video quality & speed are worth the upgrade IMHO.

    Will the 7 be better? Certainly! But for now, the 6s+ is the best new thing. How bad can that be?

    I had the iPhone 6 16GB and upgraded to the 6s Plus 64GB. It was well worth it and love it.

    I upgraded to be on the S cycle as well.

    I agree had the 6+ and I loved it -it's packed up to be sent back to Verizon and the 6s+ is worth my upgrade -smoother experience IMO. Hoping next year 7+ brings a smaller bezel and a black color option

    I went from a 64GB 6 to a 128GB 6s Plus and I am loving it. The main reason I went from 64GB to 128 GB is because the difference in monthly payment between the two on the AUP was only about $4, so I went for it. I figure this way I'll never worry about storage.

    I sold my 6 just this past week on Swappa for $460.

    If you've ever been frustrated by web page reloads, crashes, or lag when loading complex websites or jumping between pages/apps, then definitely upgrade.

    The S models perform like a fast desktop computer. It's pretty amazing.

    Well... I just pulled the trigger and ordered 64Gb iPhone 6S+ in Gold color. What ever. At the moment I have a huge buyers remorse but I bet it will be gone as soon as I get my hands on the phone. :D

    PS. My bank account hurts. :D

    It's here! Writing this post on my 6S+. It was definitely worth it. I should have gone + already with the 6. Love the size. So much room for content. I'm super excited! :D
