Well, I can't say no matter what, because if it cost $50,000 I wouldn't upgrade, but I upgrade every year because I enjoy having the latest tech.

So, yeah. I'll be upgrading my XS Max to whatever the equivalent is this year.

Probably not.

The XS / XS Max does a great job at everything that I need a phone to do. There’s not much that can be done to entice me at this point outside of the camera - and it would have to be ground breaking - not a marginal improvement.

I’ll probably be sliding back to a two year upgrade cycle considering the prices and marginal increases in performance every year.

Not this time around unless there’s a significant design change... i.e. 2018 iPad Pro design. I’m happy with my iPhone XS 512GB. That alone was $1,350.00. This was coming from the iPhone X 256GB. So I may be waiting awhile.

I will buy for my wife again ,

another year another phone >> life update

:apple::)

I will do something similar.

I will gladly take my wife's iPhone 8 and I will buy her a new 2019 iPhone of her choice, so that I can wait until 2020 to (presumably) buy for myself a revolutionary device with under-display touch ID and no notch and 5G.

2019 new iPhones are shaping up to be the new "iPhone X" kind of disaster model year.

I usually update every two years and my X will be two years old in December. When the new phone comes out I’ll see what it offers and decide if it’s worth the upgrade. Tell you the truth, I have no problem with the way my X has performed and could easily keep it for another year.

If my SE breaks I will definitely buy another one, but that’s about the only guarantee. If Apple decides to bring back the SE form factor with a new design or updated specs, I would consider upgrading if the price/specs were right, but I won’t upgrade to a larger phone this year.

Only a fool would buy "no matter what", tha'ts beyond basic fanboy/girl
I wouldn't say it's beyond. It's pretty much the definition of fanboy/girl. Apple could put out the same phone in a new colour and many people will pay $1000 for it without a thought.

#3 in your list is not a feature Apple will be adding to the iPhone, and the iPhone already is ‘edge to edge’ as it is right now.

#1 and #4 are already expected every year, An updated processor is not something the average consumer cares about.
