I'll get a 7 when they hit, but not likely on day one. That's too much hassle. I'll wait a bit and see what kind of bugs pop up and get swatted. My 5s is still working like a champ, (knock on wood) and I'm not displeased with it.

I'm sure a lot will say no now but still buy it in September
Most will post how this is no different than the 6S (because iPhones are only improved if it looks different, I guess), yet later we will see posts on people bragging that theirs have shipped, and complained how their screens have yellow tint.
The weird behaviors of consumers.

Is the first time I have not been looking forward to the release. I have a six and I think I'm just going to keep it. It works great and the cameras is fantastic.
But knowing me I may get it

I've been through 5 phones in a year it has to stop! I'm sticking with my 6s plus end of story.

I always get the new iPhone. I look forward to it.

I just always have trouble deciding which size to get. Might have to go with the big clunky Plus if there're dual cameras. Sounds awesome and the camera is one of the most important features to me.

For me , it all depends on apples improvement on the camera. If it's the same, only 12mp at f/2.2, then I'll be getting an android (Galaxy note 6/7) if their camera is better. I mean, Apple has been so far behind on the camera and optics, it's not even funny. It took them 4 years to get away from 8mp...really? They say the plus model will have a dual lens camera, then they say the option has been scrapped due to technical difficulties. So who knows. I'll be looking at both phones and then decide.

I'm actually considering the Note 7, especially if the spec sheet turns out to be true. Samsung has been killing it over the last year, while Apple has been kinda....just there

I normally upgrade every year but I am going to skip this one as the changes just aren't big enough for me to upgrade my 6s plus.
If Apple are planning a new 10 year anniversary phone next year with huge changes then they may well release it on the 29th June 2017.

I am. For me a lot of things changes when the 7 hits. I have a 6 now and planning on getting the 7 plus.

So I'm getting a bigger screen, new color, 3D Touch, hey Siri and whatever else is new. My contract ends when the 7 arrives so I'm going to switch operator as well. And with the new operator I can trade my 7 plus in for the 8 next year so that's nice.

Generally I hold off on first release iPhones. Bigger chance of problems to come. Even more so with all new iPhones like the iPhone 7 , the next level to the totally redesigned phone and new fresh features and next wave of technology...

A 3 month later release of the iPhone 7 gives me more confidence and most likely in someway a better phone than the first release of iPhone 7... Maybe not better and maybe the same, but the later production model will be in fact as good or better...

Just watched a pocket now vid with the pro rumors. Rumor is pricing for plus/pro to be steep. Even 1300+ for people the 256 model. Yeesh. That's a lot to ask imo
