    I have a 6s and really want the larger size of the 7 Plus. Am I crazy? Next phone is expected in September.

    I'd consider a 6s Plus but really want the depth effect as well, which it doesn't have.

    At this time you're just too late to get the 7 Plus. Your 6s is a quite recent iPhone and I don't think the benefits of an iPhone 7 are worth the upgrade from a 6s.

    I'm sure you can hold on a little longer to your 6s. In the end, what is waiting 5 more months in iPhone land?

    If you do get a 7 Plus now, you will regret it when the newer iPhones come out.

    If you NEED it now than get it, if not I would think about waiting.

    Not crazy!

    I got my 7 Plus on April 6 and it's a tremendous upgrade from the 6s Plus.

    I'd say go for it =) if you ever want the new one, in September, you could aways sell your 5 months old 7 Plus for a very good price! It'll still be popular among people who want a recent iPhone but can't afford the latest.

    I agree, don't not get the latest and greatest because a new one is coming out in 5 months. You can even keep the 7 plus until late this year and get the 8 months after launch

    I switched from Android in January to the 7Plus. It's a great device. There is always going to be new phones being released. This phone is not old. Apple releases updates and doesn't hold back like Android
    If u want the 7Plus go for it
    I love it

    While it might be close to the announcement in September, it isn't always easy to get the new phone. I didn't get mine until almost November. That being said, if you really want it, get it. It's a great phone and will be this time next year too. There will always be something better coming. If you want it and can afford it, go get it.

    Main reason I switched from 6S to 7 Plus is because the 7 Plus has a better camera, bigger screen and better battery life! Best phone I have ever used!

    It's not crazy! Get the 7 Plus, depending on what your method is for upgrade Verizon and Apple have the annual upgrade if you pay off 50%.

    I think trying to get the new one is always a little nuts, I didn't get my 7 Plus until the end of October and there were still other people waiting for it long after me.

    Give it a shot! It's still a fantastic phone!

    I would get it. I have one, and love it. I got it in December. When I had Android devices in the past, this is about the point in time when I started having issues. But nothing with my iPhone. And personally, with all of the changes being floated out there for the new iPhone, I see a ton of issues on the horizon for the first year.

    Why would you wait 5 1/2 months if you need/want one now. There is bargains to be had now no need to pay retail, i got a New sealed 7 plus 256 gb for $600 below retail and a New sealed iPad pro 9.7 for $370 below, all in the last month.

    Cash is King.

    Bought an iPhone 7+ today coming from a nexus 6P. Absolutely zero regrets getting this over the upcoming iPhone since I'll want the second iteration of this new design late next year.

    Sorry AUD. Paid $950 and Apple sell for $1569 here. Gumtree seller, if you have the cash on hand there is some bargains as some people not all just want a quick sale.

    My $950 is about your $717. $1 AUD = US 0.75, plus we have the Australian Apple Tax

    I haven't heard that, but I wouldn't be surprised. With as big of an overhaul being done, they may want to take their time.
