    I had preordered the iPhone 6 plus and then cancelled it yesterday. I couldn't go through with it. Not only is my 5S still a very good phone and in pristine condition, but it isn't my primary device anymore. Over the past five months I would say, my Air has been my go to device. And if iOS 8 brings continuity the way I think it is going to work, then I really won't be using my iPhone much at all. So I decided that if I was going to drop that kind of money on a device, I should wait for the new iPad and get that. I would rather have the best iPad than the best iPhone.

    That's cool. I just don't need it then. When I say that the Air is my primary device, it really is. Most of the people I know have an iPhone. So I do a lot of talking through FaceTime audio and video. So I can use my iPad over my iPhone. I text over my iPad especially at work. People actually think that I'm working when they see me typing away. And of course multimedia consumption is a far better experience on the iPad than the iPhone. The only thing that my iPad doesn't have is LTE which is what I'm going to get when the next iPad is released. So no new iPhone for me. Looking for the new iPad instead. And I probably won't have to worry about back orders or anything.

    My Air is used for 50+ percent of my day. Mine is LTE (T-Mobile) and that's part of the reason I'm able to use it as much as I do.

    In my role as an HR Manager covering multiple warehouses, retail stores and HQ location I am constantly on the move. The Air not only gives me access to my email, notes in Evernote, files on Dropbox and my calendar but I can be functional and productive as well.

    i was going to but problem is demand locally was no one would have any till halloweenish to early novemeber. I also decided to stop thinking about myself for once im in debt the holidays are coming, i have a 3 year old and 8 year old niece who dont get much, im throwing my iphone 6 money i saved there way to make sure they have good holiday season, After holidays are done and my bank account recovers more i will look into the 6 maybe. Verizon told me i can edge upgrade if i have just a year left, so i could edge upgrade in may then when iphone 6s or whatever next model is i wont be binded to contract. IS better this way i think

    thanks, friend of mine works at verizon advised me of a loop hole they really dont tell you because its perfectly legal and everything but basically i got my iphone six space grey 16gb for new contract pricing. I was saving up to pay retail I have it but he knew how much my family means to me and advised me of this loop hole and today got my new iphone six for 250ish had some discounts applied and everything because some stuff they advertised wasnt in stock so they discounted and substituted. I dont think its bad price since i wasnt not able upgrade at discount until may 2016, and the 6 at retail was gonna set me back 700$ with tax and discount stil would paid 400 plus tax about. I was stil able to basically take that 700 i saved paid for my phone and it still leaves me if my math is right, after upgrade fee about 400$ left for kids this year. Got what I wanted early

    That's awesome. Fyi...I just sold my iPhone 5 16gb on ebay for $320. It was mint condition with 2 great cases,..you should get more for a 5s. Recoup that money right back.

    I wonder how much I would get for my 64GB iPhone 5S. It would be nice to make some money to cushion the blow from the almost $1000 I spent preordering the 6 plus.

    I honestly think if I had an iPad I wouldn't have gotten a 6 plus. I wanted a larger screen for some of the things I like to enjoy on my phone. And so far the Plus has been great to me. But at the same time I'd still go for a new iphone sooner or later. Then again I shouldn't say that since I only have iphones and no iPads. . .yet.

    I've had an iPad 2 and I have an iPad Mini, yet, as big as the iPhone 6 Plus is, it's still not iPad-like, in my opinion.

    The iPad does offer a different experience. I can't wait to get a new one
    this winter. This may be my last upgrade for a while though. I just
    want an iPad with LTE. I should have gotten one before, but I was
    thinking that I wouldn't need it if I could just tether my iPhone. But
    there have been situations where I would have liked not to do this.
    So my next iPad purchase will have LTE.

    I'm the opposite of the OP. I have not been using my iPad Air 128 GB VZW at all. I use my 5s wherever I go. I'm planning on getting the 6 Plus 128 GB VZW by trading in my 5s and iPad Air and paying the difference. If this doesn't work then I'll get the Note 4.

    Oooh the Note 4. I really hope that my plus comes before the 17th because I may be tempted to pick that up instead.

    I have the iPad Air, I got the iPhone 6. The 6 plus was way too big, I'm happy with the 6. I still use my iPad as much as before, but now I also enjoy having all my devices connected. (I was coming from Blackberry).

    I have an iPad Air and it compliments my iPhone 6 plus nicely. I like to read a lot and browse the web. My plus gives me the screen estate to do those things without having to take my iPad Air places.

    I don't know if you are talking to me, but I still am not sure if it was the right thing to do to get the iPhone 6 plus. Yes I want it, but I know that I don't need it. My 5S is flawless and works very well. I haven't had any complaints about it. I'm going to give the 6 plus a few days, I should be able to determine whether or not I'm going to keep it. Feels strange to wait for something this long and then decide not to keep it after a few days. But that's going to be the case. We will see.

    Hopefully you keep it! It really is a great device and will work well with your iPad. I've read on these forums that people now use their iPads less because of the 6+. This might not be the case for you but it is worth noting. Anyways I plan to pick up a new iPad when they release it just because they serve different purposes for me. But personally I couldn't go back to a 4" screen after using my 6+. Good luck!

    Same here, my iPad Air became my primary device and 5s is still awesome enough so I don't want to change it. 6s will probably be my next iPhone.

    Welcome to iMore. I feel the same way. My iPad Air2 has become my primary device and my 5s is still in prestine condition so I will probably wait until the next wave of iPhones are released whatever the next name/number will be. All things are subject to change though.....SMILE
