    If I can keep myself away from an Android phone then I'll be upgrading to the iPhone 7. I can't not have the latest and greatest. It's a character flaw.

    Well then you'll have to get the iPhone 7. Your Android will no longer be the latest OR the greatest

    Haha. Well I'm on a 6s Plus now. I just get tempted by all the new Android phones that come out. Trying to stick with Cupertino.

    BGR: iPhone 7 specs: A10 benchmarks leaked

    According to the article linked above, the rumored Apple A10 CPU to be featured in the upcoming iPhone 7 appears to top 3000 in Geekbench 3 Single-Core tests, nearly 500 points more than the Apple A9 which is in the iPhone 6s.

    The question is... will that improvement in performance between the A9 and the rumored A10 CPU be that noticeable? Will it be enough to really make a difference? Will it be as noticeable as what was seen between the A8 and the A9?

    In the Apple upgrade program since I was buying new iPhone every year anyway. With the Apple upgrade program makes it easier since I don't have to bother selling my current iPhone. Turn that in and get a new one every year.

    Only issue with that though doesn't the phone have to be in near pristine condition to turn it in?

    I was thinking of doing this too with the iPhone 7 and I have my mom on the upgrade program right now but I'm probably going to keep her on the 6S for three years cause she doesn't use her phone for much or either give her my 6S+ and trade her 6S back in to get the 7+.

    You do get AppleCare Plus as part of the deal so if something were to happen you have AppleCare to help you.

    I'm thinking about getting the 7/7Plus/7Pro this way. I pay for AC+ anyway. You don't have to trade it in, if I remember correctly. You could buy it outright and sell it.

    This also all depends on whether I can get one online this way. The closest Apple Store to me is 120 miles away.

    I am unsure. I have the 6s plus now and it seems like the new iPhone likely won't be revolutionary. I have barely had this a month but I can easily jump to the new iPhone.

    I'm considering not upgrading and waiting till the 2017 one simply because it is the ten year anniversary. On the other hand I am very curious what T-Mobile has in store for windows phones. If by September I haven't seen any new windows phone come to T-Mobile and if the iPhone 7 interests me I may go with it. Then again my 6s plus is not bad TBH.

    Too early to tell.

    That's what I do. I keep my phones for 2 years and then upgrade with each number change... 4, 5, 6, Etc. Impatiently waiting for the 7 to come out.

    That's doubtful considering the SE was just released this year. I have a feeling we won't be seeing an annual upgrade cycle for this device. As a matter of fact, I don't think we'll be seeing annual cycles for any of Apple's devices sooner or later. There's really no need.

    No need for you but very much needed for Apple. Selling hardware is still their main business and I'm pretty sure releasing new iPhones every year is not going anywhere anytime soon. There are millions of people on different buying cycle, so there are always people excited and ready to buy the phone on a particular year.

    I'm an annual upgrader so I'm always excited about what's coming next down the pipeline. The fact of the matter is that growth is slowing and it costs a LOT of money to make a new iPhone. People aren't upgrading as often anymore because they have less reason to. Apple will always be a hardware company but we are already starting to see a shift toward services.

    This iMore article talks about Apple moving to a three-year design cycle. Normally we would see a complete redesign in the iPhone 7. They're starting to slow things down.

    With as similar as the 7 seems to the 6s, I'm planning to skip it. Unless there's some enticing surprises at release.

    Well that is redesign, I'm taking about there will be a new iPhone every year. Redesign or just evolution. I'm not arguing about if they move redesign from 2 to 3 or 1 or whatever makes sense. But one thing for sure every here there will be a new iPhone.

    It's been since 2014 since there was a redesign. Not that terribly long IMO but I was looking forward to a refresh this year. Sounds like 2017 is going to be the big year now.

    You excited? You pumped? You upgrading to the iPhone 7 once it is available?

    I'm still using my iPhone 6 Plus, which means the phone will soon be two generations old. Thinking it might be time to upgrade to the latest and greatest, but very much looking forward to seeing what the specs and features are.

    Are you upgrading? Or are you taking a cautious approach to see what the phone has to offer? Or perhaps you're doing just fine with your iPhone 6, 6 Plus, or SE?
    If i cant scratch through my pockets and find the cash... YES! ^_^

    As soon as i saw there will be a bigger sensor for better low light pictures. I'm sold
    so many times I'm at a party and the lighting isn't great so having a device that can take nice pictures in the dark would be awesome.

    The alleged "Pro" model is rumored to have TWO camera sensors for even better low light photography. Even better!
