I was planning on waiting until september to get the new iPhone 7 instead of buying the iPhone 6s, because I bought an Android and honestly I miss apple, but I can't wait any longer!!

No...they will continue to crank out the iPhone 7 on time. The iPhone 7 will continue to be the flagship and Apple won't mess up their sales by delaying it. My advice..if you need a phone now you might consider the 6s. Why wait unless you are hoping for a design change.

I'm waiting mainly because my android still works, so no hurry there, and I think it'd be better to wait for the "new stuff" rather than buy an iPhone 6s, which is awesome, but wouldn't it be better to wait for a newer version? And if I don't like the iPhone 7 for whatever reason, by the time it comes out, iPhone 6s will be way cheaper!

Well I can't argue with that. If the iPhone 7 is what you want then you should wait it out. September will be here before you know it.

Nope, two different market sectors, Apple is going for the premium flagship market with the 7, and that will be released in the fall.

I doubt it.

It's most likely that iPhone SE's components are being made with existing and well-proven tooling. The external body and moving parts (like buttons) have been in production since the iPhone 5 era. The internal electronics are similar to the 6s. I doubt this takes much if any resources away from iPhone 7 production preparations.

OP. Why not wait for the iPhone 8?!

By the time the 8 shows up the 7 will be way cheaper then it will be on launch day this year!

Hell, why not wait for the iPhone 9, 10 or 11? I mean the prices on the iPhone 7 will drop dramatically in that time!

Seriously, this question is asked everytime there is a new iPhone or a new Apple product coming soon!

Do I wait or do I buy now? The reality is Apple is always on to the next product. Buy what you need or want when you need or want. Apple's next product is ALWAYS around the bend!

I doubt it. Seems like Apple is taking a leaf out of Samsung's book and having two phone launches. Samsung spreads out the Galaxy S and Edge from the Note; Apple will spread out the flagship iPhone and plus from the SE.

I think Apple is attempting to maximize its production with the launch of the SE.

Anyone else notice that the SE launch is six months and seven days after the 6S? I don't know or believe that the SE will be updated annually, but the timing seems planned and executed for a reason... To make as much money as possible.
