    Hi. My title pretty much says it all. I have a 6s+ And from what I'm hearing and reading, it doesn't look like the new phones will have enough to entice me to switch. That said, I definitely need more storage and may upgrade to a higher GB 6s+ in the fall if there is a price cut. What do you think?

    Prices generally go down 100 across the board

    I'd save even more and go with something used. Or go to china and have them upgrade you to 128gb for a mere $60 ;)

    Great news. Well with a trade in on my current phone, it will somewhat take the sting out of a new model. Now I just have to not damage it before the price drop!!!! Thanks

    While the price will drop, I believe the 128 GB will be dropped as well and Apple will continue to sell the 16 GB and the 64 GB model of the 6S/6S Plus

    That will be fine with me cause I'd only go up to 64G anyway.

    If buying used, I highly recommend Swappa.

    Are we sure that Apple will keep the 6S/ 6S+ around once the iPhone 7 drops? I remember one year where Apple dropped the previous generation model immediately - was it the iPhone 5?

    I think the dropped the 5 when the 6 was released. Normally they have three models out.

    Absolutely. Typically a $100.00 when the announce pricing tiers on the iPhone 7. Carriers usually follow shortly after.

    They dropped the 5 when the 5s came out and replaced it with the 5c. I don't think anything like that'll happen this time around.

    Yeah by 100

    So 6s will still be a great option for many people.
