IOS6 drops on the 19th, should we update our old phones before receiving our iPhone 5s or wait?
I am for the simple fact there may be some new features that I immediately take advantage of and want it to "back up" on the new phone.
I'd wait and let the prospective buyer decide if they want iOS6 or not.
I am giving mine away, so I know he wants IOS6, but if I was selling my old one I wouldn't update. You never know if they want to jailbreak their phone and how long it will take for one to come out for IOS6.....could hurt resell actually.
I was thinking of not updating to ios6 so when I get my iPhone 5 the difference is more significant. Anyone else doing this?
I plan on setting up as new so it doesn't really matter to me.
I'm going to upgrade to iOS6 because it's going to create the backup that I'm going to need for the iPhone 5 a few days later and it'll make that process much smoother and faster.
i plan to update.
The 5 will come with iOS6
Exactly this. iPhone 5 + iOS 6 is gonna be a great experience. Rather get all the goodness on the new phone.
Your missing it.
The prospective buyer is the person he'd be selling his old phone to. And that buyer may want to keep ios5 for Jailbreaking or whatever. So if he's selling the phone it might be better to leave ios5 and let them decide if they want to update.
Are you THE infamous BJ from Bimmerfest forum?
I lurk in that forum and saw various posts from you... You are extremely entertaining
I'm not updating my iPhone 4S for a couple of reasons. First, I like to experience all the new features for the first time on the new phone. But really, the main reason is that it's jailbroken right now and when I sell it I'll sell it as a jailbroken phone since that tends to beef up the value a bit since it will be unlockable with gevy sim.if I end up selling it to someone who wants it updated first then I'll certainly comply.
I didn't read anywhere that the OP said they were selling the old one.
Is it possible to restore from a backup that was made from iOS 5.1 onto a phone with iOS 6? Or must they be the same version?
The iOS version needs to be the same.
Well of course. Since I own the best, most cutting-edge car it stands to reason I'd fill it with the best, most-cutting edge telephony, no?
