    No upgrade here. Hubby & I just got our 6S Plus' in Jan 2016. I'm very happy with it honestly, and the iPhone 7 Plus didn't really "wow" me to where I feel I have to trade up from the 6S Plus. I totally love what I have now

    Not upgrading. Maybe next year, but I might try to hold off until 2018.

    I thought the new AirPods were compatible with older iPhones as long as you upgrade to iOS10? I will be keeping my iPhone 6s Plus till next year....

    I buy the new model every year. For some reason I can't bring myself to justify upgrading and taking the time to try and sell off my old device. I feel lazy and unmotivated to even try at this point because I just am not as excited for the new iPhone as I have been in years previous. Even last year I felt much more compelled to upgrade from the 6 Plus to 6S Plus. I just had that gut feeling that they were going to improve on the memory and speed which ended up happening. Best upgrade I ever made.

    They will work on Android phones as well, so there's no reason they shouldn't work on an older iPhone

    Apple are marketing geniuses. Despite a history of poor sounding Apple earbuds they have found a way to make people interested in their wireless ones at a hefty price.

    I'm not tempted at all for the 2X optical zoom and more colors. I guess water resistance is nice, but my daily life doesn't have many water hazards. I'm already impressed with the 6S+ camera and 60FPS, 1080 video. If I want much more than that, I'll buy a separate camera.

    I was going to go from 6 Plus to 7 Plus, didn't work out, however I AM going from 6 Plus to 6s Plus. It arrives today. I plan to use it for a year if not two years, before upgrading again. So no 7 for me.

    Default 6S plus users? Upgrading?

    As far as Camera upgrade goes, one must take into consideration, their own optical health. No 2 individuals see color exactly the same. I have a fairly good understanding of HiDef Color, Quantification and the differential equations used in mapping color of R.G.B. and C.M.Y.K.
    The measuring of color is performed using a Optical Color Density Meter. A very expensive little machine that resembles a top end Fluke V/A Meter. Cost is a around a grand or so.
    I'm now retired from over 45 years of technical field service. Started in PPC repair and ended with hi-end large format plotters and color laser printers, both using C.M.Y.K. color. Special emulation thru the embedded controllers allows the C.M.Y.K. to "closely" resemble R.G.B. color (our own eyes see R.G.B.)
    In order to facilitate the measurement and quantification of each shade of color in the 16,400,000 colors that comprises the "Pantone" color scheme. Most humans can see Pantone shade differences even without any optical measuring device. The average person sees far less than the 16.4 million colors that is considered the standard for the full color spectrum. 20/20 eye sight and Orbital Ocular Color Dissemination. Very big words to describe just how much color a human eye can detect. The various levels of colors, called "shades" or "steps" generally are not discernible from one shade to the next. Approximately 5 to 10 shades of any color passes before our eyes can actually detect a change in that color spectrum.
    The standard grayscale utilizes 256 shades from zero image (white) to 100% image (black). On the average, humans can see about 128, half of 256 shades of gray.
    I have a great understanding of imaging, both analog and digital, monotone and full color. Pen plotting, line and imbedded RGB photos to be rendered in a CMYK color. RGB (photo) to CMYK (color reproduction). So how much more BS stuff do I need to write about, concerning colors and steps. This was quite enough! For anyone!
    It comes down to this. The 6s+ and the newly released iPhone-7 both have fantastic front and rear CCD's. I don't have a need for more colors or palates. 16.4 million colors are enough for me to use.
    Also, consider this little tidbit of information about who is going to be viewing the image and more importantly "what kind of print media or visual display" will be used to view or output (print) that enhanced color image. The ONLY way you can enjoy and view the enhanced colors are with the display from the device that the image was created with.
    My 6s+ 128gb device is just fine for me and any rendering of images in partial or full color, will be quite satisfactory on this phones 3D Touch Display. Consider the OUTPUT viewing device or printing device and media used in printing. With 3D printing the colors that are used are more basic than an 8 pack of Crayons.
    So again, unless you plan to display your enhanced colors on your new IPhone 7 ONLY, and are not planning on outputting a (3D build) or a color ink reproduction. Then an upgrade to the 7 is just perfect. Otherwise stick with the display of the 6s+.
    I guess I'll just have to live with such an inadequate 12mp camera and 3D Touch display of my current iPhone. I'm so disappointed with my iPhone 6s+ because of this inadequacy from Apple. HaHa Just kidding.
    I love my iPhone and I'm pretty sure that I have all the bells and whistles I need or think I might possibly need. I may just hold on to this 6s+ and consider it my last iPhone purchase. I'm to damn old to keep trying to remember all the new settings and tricks that come with a new iPhone. Heck, I haven't explored half of the functionality of this device yet.
    As in Las Vegas, BlackJack goes, I'm going to hold for now.

    I want the black matte, but waiting to see if they have a 7splus. I haven't even had the 6splus for a year yet, so I can wait a little bit.

    how are people getting like $650 in credit trading in an iPhone 6S plus to AT&T towards a 7 or 7 plus? I am kinda interested in doing that? or am i better off trying to do it on craigslist directly?

    After seeing what was released, I am going to keep mine. Any way to extend the warranty now that I've had it for 9 months?

    I don't believe you can extend through Apple; I think you need to buy AC+ in the first 60 days. You might want to look into Square Trade. They used to have a plan you could purchase as long as you'd had carrier or other insurance on the phone already.

    Default 6S plus users? Upgrading?

    Staying the course with the 6S+. I actually did a perfect install with zero bubbles, dust specs or corner/end coming up on a ZAGG HDX screen protector. No way I'm pushing that luck to put one on another phone!

    I'll be upgrading, but my 6s+ is wonderful so I'm not in a huge hurry as I would be if I had a lesser phone. Plus it'll be nice to sit back and read/watch plenty of real-world reviews.

    The A10 Fusion processor, 3GB RAM and the IP67 waterproofing almost had me!!! But I will be holding onto my 6s+128G till next year.. As it stands right now, the 6s+ is still faster when it comes to RAM management than all other Flag Ship phones, it's even faster than the One+3 running stock Android.. This is a really snappy device with no lag and I'm extremely happy with it.. I see no reason for myself to upgrade..

    Waiting to see what Apples next move will be..

    Love that Matte Black though..😍

    After just seeing the new iPhones in the local Apple Store I have to say no, as nice as the 7 plus models are I just couldn't justify the expense to upgrade from the 6s Plus 128gb which has more memory than I need and is as smooth as butter on IOS10 so I really don't see any point.
