If I will upgrade, it’s only for one reason and one reason only: the camera/s.
How about you? Will you upgrade or wait for the rumored revolutionary iPhone in 2020?

I upgrade every year. My phone is the most used device I own and figure it’s worth it for something I use constantly. Besides I’m on the iUP so it makes sense to upgrade. No more trying to resell which is well worth it too me.

@MrInquestador I preordered. I'm looking forward to seeing how the new one compares with the old one. I'm a little nervous about the weight, but have high hopes for the camera.

I preordered an 11 Pro. I am downgrading size from the 11 Pro Max. I am on iUP and usually like to upgrade so it seemed to be a big enough upgrade to be worth the sales tax. And, my overall cost is actually lower since I went from XS Max 256 GB to 11 Pro 64 GB.

I didn’t pre-order because the delivery dates are getting pushed further. What are the chances I can get one if I walk in tomorrow at an Apple store? Especially I’m eyeing the midnight green

I downgraded from a Max to an 8 Plus. I realize most people don't go in that direction, but I honestly like my Plus better.

If I were a happy Max user, I would definitely not upgrade to the Pro Max. At this point you really don't need to upgrade for at least 2 or even 3 years.

Holding on to my max. Maybe next year I’ll upgrade if I like the redesign.

If you do photography - then it’s a great update! The added battery also will help and I have a feeling the A13 Bionic along with U1 chip will be put to use with some cool AR and Apple’s own Tile announcements later next year.

I usually upgrade each year, this is the first year I’m not. My Max is great. While the camera is a worthwhile upgrade, I’ll survive until next year’s update. My battery and screen are already excellent, and my camera is no slouch. 20g of added weight doesn’t help. My Max feels heavy in bed, couldn’t imagine using a heavier phone than this brick.

Personally I wouldn’t. There’s not enough additions in phones to upgrade every year in my opinion. I’m happy with my two year cycle and even that isn’t really needed now if I’m honest.
that’s not me hating that’s just the point we’re at with tech now.
But hey if the money isn’t an issue go nuts.

Should I? Probably not. The XS Max is a perfectly capable phone that handles all of my daily tasks with ease. Will I? Hecks yeah! But that's just how I roll. Most would be perfectly fine with an XS Max, it's a fantastic device.

I did. Well worth it just for the faster Face ID and Night Mode (which I didn't think I'd be bothered about but is just stunning). Too soon to judge the battery but looking forward to the extra hours. Feels more premium than the Xs Max too.

How's your signal reception?
