    This sums up how I feel about the iPhone 7 right now:



    It feels like a stepping stone to the redesign in 2018.

    The rumor that I hope isn't true is the glossy black plastic model being sold along the matte metal models. I want the black, and it makes sense that they'll do it given that it's the most requested color.

    Right now, while we know what it will look like, rumors are a mess when it comes to everything else so my views could change.

    Well, you only have a few more minutes to complain about a phone that hasn't been released yet. Hurry up, get them in before the announcement.

    Every single iPhone is a stepping stone to the next model.

    Not everyone needs a different look for a new model to feel special.

    Hell, sometimes I wish Apple kept certain designs around longer and focused more on the OS / battery life than the amount of R&D they put into aesthetics but alas... that wouldn't drive the fashion divas into buying a new phone simply because it looks new :rolleyes:

    I'm not complaining about the phone, I think it'll be really good. I'm just saying that rumors are a mess and that I would hate it if they did a plastic black.

    That's certainly true for Apple because they start working on phones 2 years in advance. I think the design change is nice, but a change of finish (i.e. glossy) with the same design would be nice.
