iPhone 8. (OLED model). If the iPhone 8 does not appeal to me (Which it likely will), then the 7s it is.

The real question besides which model to choose, is when someone can actually get their hands on the new iPhone 8 given the demand this year.

Will check out what's on offer this year but not really feeling the need to update at the moment.

Obviously I'll make my choice after the announcement.
I have a 6s now and I don't think the 7s will be good enough to entice me in upgrading my iPhone even if it will feature wireless charging.
The only meaningful upgrade to me would be moving to a bigger display, so either 7s+ or the bezel free model. In fact I want a bigger display but 7+ is too big since it has too much bezel on the top and bottom of the screen. So it looks like iPhone 8 or whatever they'll call it would be the perfect choice. But let's see how much they price the new model, I'm not willing to pay more than $1000 for a phone so I may stick with my 6s for another year or buy the 7s+ if, as rumored, it will feature 64GB as base storage.

If the design doesn't change for iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus then strongly NO. i will not buy it at any cost.

I need a complete redesign with bezel less OLED display. And if iPhone 8 tackles all my requirements i will buy it at any cost. Even if i have to wait for months.

Will reserve my judgement until the official release but given so many new hardware changes on the 8, I will be sceptical. So possibly the 7S, not the plus model, unless the bezel is reduced.

iPhone 8. But only if it's as groundbreaking as the rumours wants us to believe. Already have an iPhone 7, so no S model for me. (always skip the S models)

The "7s" isn't expected/rumored to change physically much from over the iPhone 7. Which makes sense, because Apple will have a similar form factor as a lower tier and Primarily it will be the OLED model receiving the major revamp.

iPhone 8 or I probably won't be upgrading this year.
This is my position too, it'll depend on how fully featured it is.

To the two people (so far) that voted "There's not going to be a 7S/7S+. There will only be a 7/7+ and an 8" I hope you are correct as that would keep the iPhone 8 pricing more in line with the current top tier.

Depends on the cost. If the iphone 8 has a much higher price than the current cost of the iPhone 7/7plus, then i'll stick with my 7 plus.

Exactly what I think will happen. Current 7 and 7 Plus drop down to become the lower tier option - possibly with a slimmed down range of colour and storage options.

No headphone jack = no buy
I still regret their decision to remove the headphone jack as well, but it isn't coming back so it looks like you've bought your last new iPhone unfortunately.

Well, at least until technology develops to the point where wireless headphones can give a comparable experience with regard to sound quality.

I will most likely will purchase the 7s/7s Plus. I'd really like to get the 8, especially with the OLED screen, but I refuse to pay an arm and a leg for the device. So ultimately it will come down to price.

It'll be the iPhone 8 for me with the same 256gb my 7+ has. Whatever new features come to the new iPhones, the best ones will clearly be on the 8.

I am interested in seeing what the Pixel XL 2 is like though. But even if it's a great phone and the 8 is hard to get hold of, I just cant see me switching away from iOS as I'm far too familiar with it and never had trouble with it or iPhone.

not sure at this stage of phone development what could qualify as groundbreaking. i guess new to iphone like screen, wireless charging etc. I guess i'll wait and see.

iPhone 8 no hesitation. Really want those true OLED blacks and will finally get them. All within a bigger screen in a smaller form factor with almost zero bezels!?

I hope they also include ProMotion, I'd actually buy for that alone.

If the Edition phone doesn’t appeal to me then i might actually just buy an iPhone 7. I just hope they keep the 256GB model for sale.
I might also go that route, currently have iphone 6S plus would love the the iphone 8 or edition but price and limited quantities may set me back and if 7S plus has no new major features might just get an 7plus on the cheap for now till next year

One thing for sure, I won't be buying a $1000+ phone. I think I paid $749 for my IP7 128gb model last year. I MIGHT cough up another 50 bucks for the coming phone, but no more. Hey, it's a phone. I do well over 90% of my browsing on my laptops and iPad. And once again, it's JUST a phone.

However all bets are off depending on how much I would get for my present phone (unlocked). In the past, I've traded up every year since the 3G.
