Hi, i have an upcoming upgrade in late march. The question is, should i upgrade to the six or wait a possible month and get the 6s?
Agreed, it won't be in the spring it will be in the fall.The next iPhone upgrade won't come in April..it will be September.
Agreed, the decision would be heavily based on what the OP is currently using.It depends on what you're upgrading from
Yes, I felt the same way when I bought my 6 - to the point where I questioned for months why I spent so much money on a phone I didn't truly need.It depends on what you're upgrading from, but I would wait for the 6s. I went from the 5 to the 6 back in December. While the 6 is a better phone, the 5 was working just fine for me, and in hindsight I kind of wish I would have waited. There just wasn't enough of an overall upgrade from the 5 to the 6 to really "wow" me I guess. That isn't to say that the 6 isn't a very nice phone - it is!
If I had a 4 or 4s, I would definitely upgrade to the 6 ASAP.
But if you do get the 6 and want to upgrade to the 6s, you can always sell your 6 and buy the 6s outright. Though there would probably be a $150+ difference between what you sell the 6 for and what you buy the 6s for.
Have you heard of the at&t next, why is it so bad?same dilemma a couple of Aprils ago. Buy the 5, or wait and see what the "5s" offers up. In retrospect, I'm really glad that I waited until that September, because the 5s turned out to be a great performer with potential for better longevity. Except for Apple's curveball with the 5c replacing the 5, waiting will generally give you the choice of the new model for the same price as the current model, or the current model for $100 less. Aside from the 6-month wait, both of those options put you ahead.
Unless you're one of those who queue outside an Apple store all night, you're probably looking at December for the 6S....and it might still have 1GB of RAM. I agree that aside from the bigger screens and in the case of the 6+, better battery life, the phones this year aren't especially impressive. Owning a 6+, I wish I had waited.I'm slipping into the same boat. I have an iPhone 5 and I was due for an upgrade in early December so I got a 6+. I wasn't happy with how it fit in my front jeans pocket and then there was this issue with the screen being off-center so I sent it back. I then tried the 6 but that didn't really feel like an upgrade to me (seemed too much like the 5 regardless of new functionality). I'm now wondering if I should get the 6+ again or wait for the 6s+.
I'm not particularly excited about either 6 model but the 6+ at least has a big screen which would be something new to me. So, I think, maybe I should wait. But the thought of waiting another 8 more months for something that may disappoint even more makes me wonder. And that's *if* Apple delivers on time and I don't lose out to all the other people wanting one.
I most certainly agree.I would wait for the 6S.
Why would your family say no? If you aren't paying for it yourself, maybe you should start saving. AT&T Next is not bad. You would just pay off the entire cost of the phone over however many months you choose.Thank you all for your replies, but the problem is that if i wait for 7 months, and then when its time to upgrade in September i may not get the upgrade because maybe my family will say no. So if you were me would you upgrade in march or wait in September and risk loosing your upgrade, and no one wants to wait 7 months for an iPhone.
Have you heard of the at&t next, why is it so bad?
Lets hope that is true!It'll have a proper 2GB of ram, and iOS is bound to be debugged and working much better than iOS 8 we're stuck with now.
I buy my phones outright every year, but if I was limited to a single upgrade I would want to be on the "s" cycle. They usually provide the largest jump. Yes the new phones have a redesign, but the internals do not make that large of a jump.I would do it now just to not be stuck in the s cycle.
Its not a bad thing but you only get a year before a complete redesign.
By the time you get a 6S, it may not be until Oct.-Nov. due to demand. And if you wait for the Sim-Free version, that won't be until Jan. 2016.
