    Default Staying put...for now.

    For the first time in my almost-ten-year iPhone history, I am not impressed enough with the latest iPhone iteration (iPhone 7/7+) to make me rush down to my carrier store & upgrade from my year-old iPhone 6s. It almost bums me out, and I've talked myself into & out of making the swap ever since the 7 was announced. I've upgraded the 6s to iOS10 and it's working great...even having attained acceptable battery life after a few days of the OS "settling". With the new OS, it's almost like a new phone...a new adventure.

    So...does anybody else here echo my viewpoint? Are you officially still on the fence regarding upgrading to the 7/7+...or gave you flat decided to wait until next years offering to give up your 6s?

    Definitely not getting it.

    To me, the latest =/= greatest.
    My 6s is still pristine and working perfectly. So I can't justify the 7, nor do I need to get it "only to have it".

    I do all that I can to go a minimum of two years between phones, so I'm obviously not getting a 7. I'm hoping for another 18 months on the 6s and I'll get whatever comes out next year six months or so after it comes out - no lines, no waiting for the color I want, etc.

    If my deductions are correct...and since Apple is busy breaking old, predictable patterns with Tim Cook at the helm, I doubt there will be an "s" version of the iPhone 7 for 2017. I believe those who are predicting that Apple will celebrate the 10th Anniversaty of the iPhone with a dramatic new hardware design & many feature improvements (such as a 5"-plus screen with no bezels & a virtual home button) are correct. Whether it'll be called "iPhone 8", "iPhone Pro", or something else is yet to be known...but I'll wait for that one, or the "s" iteration of it.

    I'm staying put with my 6s as well. I was even thinking earlier that maybe I'll skip next year's version and hang onto it for yet another year. We'll see.

    Same here. I'm sticking with my 6S Plus because it works perfectly fine and my finances won't allow me to upgrade

    I will be upgrading next year though!

    I wish I had not upgraded. Not because I don't like the phone. Just because the 6s was my first ever new iPhone and I love it. But it honestly makes no sense to return the 7 now. I do wish I'd gotten silver again though.

    I can upgrade to the 7, though I will wait it out for something next year.

    That's what I did so it didn't really cost me anything but tax.

    I'm also staying with my 6s Plus for now. I do like certain things about the 7/7 Plus, especially the Jet Black color, but I'm not sure if it's enough to make me upgrade.

    I'm staying put as well. I have a 64 GB 6S and it is in great working order.

    Now my wife on the other hand... I got her a 7+. She came from a 5S and was overdue for an upgrade. But I can say that we are not missing much for those of us 6S owners who are "holding out".

    I'm where you are, and would only upgrade to the 7 for the reason you did...because I could. I'm at the halfway point on my current 6s, and I'll either be making payments on it for another year, or on a new 7.

    Meh...we'll see. Tax money is still tax money.

    But, hope you're happy with your new phone nonetheless!

    I jumped and upgraded to the 256 gloss black. I'm sending it back. Not worth the upgrade to me . Felt like my 3gs (finger print magnet) and I didn't like the new home button. Sticking with my 6s until the 2017 version is released.

    Sold my 6+ awhile back(size was bugging me) and thought I'd get the 7. After reading about the call drops and connection issues so many were having it really put me off. Not to mention the price. So picked up a pristine 6s for a heck of a lot less. The build of the 7 felt kind of cheap and plasticky to me also. The 6s is solid. Will wait and see what the 10 year anniversary edition brings next year. Really glad I held off on the 7.

    On pre order day I ordered the jet black model. Was told that it wouldn't be delivered until the end of November.

    Then I went to the local Verizon store and Best Buy. Wasn't feeling the upgrade. So when I got back home I cancelled the phone upgrade and watch upgrade. I didn't think the improvements were worth the upgrading from my 6s plus.

    Then I noticed that when I am taking pictures I find myself needing the zoom feature of the camera. Then I started watching the YouTube release videos and wound up ordering it directly from Apple. I should be getting the new phone in about 3 weeks. It's the matte black model and not the jet black model.

    I also bought the new watch for the display and to match my new iPhone 7.

    Right now I am on the fence about the color. Either I'll stay with the matte black or move back to the gold.
