    For there is little difference between iPhone 5 and 5S, so I have waiting for iPhone 6 Plus. But it is said that Apple Inc. will release iPhone 6S soon, which will make a big move on the new phone? Should I wait for it?:eek:

    RUMORS have it that the 6S will be a very good update. Just Google 6S Rumors and there is lots to read. If you have a working phone, I would wait:rolleyes:

    Try to imagine how you will feel if you do not wait and get the 6 today and then the 6S comes out with some great new features.

    There's not a little difference between the 5 and the 5s. The difference is huge:
    - Extremely faster chip (and 64bit)
    - Motion Co-processor
    - Extremely better camera and video
    - Touch ID Sensor
    - Better battery life
    - Better chips overall (eg. faster networking)

    I've gone from an iPhone 5 16GB to an iPhone 5s 16GB, in the UK the majority of networks do NOT do 4G on the iPhone 5, the 4G network speed has been a revelation. My only regret is 16GB of storage.

    If you had to sign a two year contract or sign a plan like Verizon Edge or AT&T Next or are even buying it outright, I would wait the 4 months and see what the next iPhone is like since it will cost the same amount as the current gen devices cost.

    The 5S was incrementally better than the iPhone 5 and it wasn't imperative that anyone upgraded from an iPhone 5 unless they wanted 4G.
    As the i5/5S/6/6+ all have a paltry 1GB of RAM, the jump to 2GB with the 6S will be a huge performance upgrade and worth the entry price alone. The 6S will be what the iPhone 6 should have been. As a 6+ owner I now know that I will never buy another iPhone or iPad which only has 1GB of RAM.

    If you think the difference between the 5 and the 5S was little, I don't think that the 6S will impress you. However, if they do add Force Touch, it might justify it. But still, if you wait, you will probably still be able to get the 6 for a cheaper price if you aren't impressed.

    At this point, I would wait until the 6s is released. Unless your 5 is really giving you trouble, I don't see any real reason to buy the 6 Plus now.

    I NEED to upgrade from 6 to 6+ and I would do it tomorrow if it wasn't so close to S season. I can't imagine how envious I would be if I upgraded now and all these spanky new features come out a couple months later. I'm going to wait and suffer it out.

    4 months is so close... i would say 4 months and earlier, yes wait. if you can't wait, just buy one and sell it later. whatever you don't get back then that's how much ur patience is worth.

    ie. buy 750, sell for 650= 100. 100/4= $25 a month.

    25 a month isn't bad to pay for your patience right?

    I would wait until the 6S is announced.

    It's not too long at all, should be available to buy in 4 months and I can see it - along with iOS 9 - really fulfilling the potential of the iPhone 6.

    I'm considering coming back from Android, and will definitely wait until September.

    I'm still using a 5C and I must say A6 on iOS 8 is perfectly fine. Don't feel the urge to upgrade yet

    I'd personally wait for the 6S even though I don't think it will be a huge upgrade from the 6. The design will almost certainly be the same, A9 processor, i'd imagine 2gb of ram, and force touch. It's four months away and if your 5 is still holding up ok i'd wait. If it's on its last legs get the 6 or 6+. I highly doubt you'll be missing out on much with the 6S.

    A new iPhone is going to come out every year which is going to have better features and so on, it really doesn't matter because when the iPhone 6s or 7 comes out the next generation of the phone will come out the following year and beat the previous model.

    If your phone now is fine, I would wait. It will only be four months. Otherwise the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are amazing phones. I am completely satisfied with mine.

    That's all impressive on paper, but probably the only things average users notice between them is Touch ID and maybe battery life.

    Performance and camera are noticeable as well.

    To the average non-techy user, probably not as much as you think.

    Video camera on iphone 5 in fact is better under low light conditions than 5s, 6 and 6 plus.

    If it is released in September - only 4 months from now - and you would regret missing out on any additional features, then yes - of course you should wait.

    The fact that you're even asking suggests that you should wait :)
