    At this juncture based on all rumors to be correct I am going to say no...

    Normally I always upgrade, and if not for the body and charging port change I would have upgraded.

    The current iPhone 4S works perfectly for me 99% of the time, I have no real issues or complaints. I am beta testing iOS 6 (beta 3) and for the most part the changes I was hoping for are in the iOS and not the phone. iPhone 4S will run almost everything the same with the new iOS 6.0 full release.

    The new iPhone (5) for lack of a final name, is not that different. OK, we have a few chip changes, faster, more memory, more storage and the Near Field stuff... all cool, but I can live w/o the Near Field for now, not sure if I would be using it anyway.

    The killer for me, is the body change and the port change.

    I have a LOT invested in cases, docks, charging cables, belt clips, Otter Box, etc.. to be tossing it all away to start over for changes that are not that huge.

    So for me, unless I am missing something HUGE I can't justify the upgrade even though my GEEK status almost demands that I make the upgrade.

    Only thing at this point that may change my mind is if my wife decides does does want my iPhone 4S I may do the 5 upgrade, or just get her a 4S when everyone dumps theirs to get the iPhoine 5.

    So for now... Nope.. (sad to say)
    I will be once my upgrade is available...not for awhile, so I get to see just how much the 5 has to offer. I'm OK with the need for an "adapter" to use my existing large port and my iPad2 can still use them until the iPad changes its port format...so I get to sit back and remain 99% happy with my jailbroken 4S and see what the 5 brings to the party.

    I'm getting "The New iPhone" errr..iphone 5 what ever they call it. I have had the 4 since it was first released and it time for it to be put out to pasture. The feature I am most looking forward to in the new iPhone is the face time over 3g and Siri with Voice directions on maps. I would have used Face time a lot more had it always been on 3g.


    My otter box case is all but destroyed it did its job well and took its licks.
    I'm looking at Life proof cases for the next iPhone only thing that has me kinda concerned is the limited number of times you can open before the gasket breaks.I may just put a screen protector on it and leave it nude since its supposed to have a tougher liquid metal backing and frame.

    Will definitely get an iPhone (6th gen). I'm going to pre-order it the moment it becomes available.
    (And will keep the ancient iPhone 4 for backward compatibility testing...)

    I went from the 4S to a Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and sold it to get a 4 to hold me over until the new iPhone comes out. I miss Siri and can't wait to get the new one!!!

    I bought the 4s at launch and then went all in with an ipad 2 and my macbook pro 13. I like having all my devices from the same time and matching so to speak. I havnt seen anything really compelling to must have in the new iphone and honestly the 4s is working so damn well its fast, great camera, long battery life I just cant see any reason to upgrade even with selling the 4s for 3/4 the cost. If the new phone comes out and isnt what all these leaked images are saying it to be I may reconsider but unless it comes out in some super high spec materials that are waterproof, drop proof and means I dont need to buy any more cases I think I will just sit this one out and wait till the next new one is released!

    But if the 7" ipad is real I will be buying it 100% for sure the day it is released then my pathetic 1 half working gps app and one hacked junk google maps android sideload playbook will be removed and I will be back to all apple, well except for my quickbooks on my old windows 7 pc seeing as intuit refuses to bring the mac version to canada....

    I probably will at some point. Since I just got my 4s in April, I have some time to my next upgrade. To be honest though I'm content with my 4s for now especially since I just jailbroke it.

    Nope. For the first time since leaving BlackBerry, I am completely happy with my 4s and will keep it as long as it continues to work. At least now, I don't need to upgrade every chance I get because my phone was being held together with spit and kite string.

    I'm eligible for my upgrade next week I think but I'll be holding out until sometime after the folks around her get their hands on it and put it through it's paces.

    OR

    I'll be picking it up as soon as I can after release. Whichever comes first.

    I definitely will be upgrading to it *sometime*.... depends if I have the funds to buy it retail when it drops or when I save up the money more to do so, whichever comes first.


    But definitely yes. My 4 is becomming slow in the tooth lately.

    I'll be upgrading.

    I just hope Apple doesn't follow suit and name it 'The New iPhone' like it did with the iPad.

    After watching this weeks iMore podcast, I agree it makes it harder for someone who isn't very tech savvy, to purchase third party accessories from the likes of Amazon or similar places.

    If Apple are going to drop the model number from the iPhone and iPad range, then why not just call them iPad 2012, iPhone 2012. At least this way it gives you a definitive model name when looking around for accessories.

    I'm upgrading for sure, i still own and use my first iphone (3gs) and i must say, it has had it's time
    it was amazing when it came out but now...
    i have ios 6 on it and a lot of my apps just don't work anymore, it's getting slow (sometimes very slow)

    also my power button is gone so i have to charge it at least once a day, sometimes even 2 or 3 times since the automatic lock just goes on after 1min and pocket dialing is a daily routine by now.

    I'll more than likely be upgrading to an iPhone this time around. Being on Verizon, I've been holding out until the inclusion of LTE. It's what kept me away from the 4 and the 4S. And after being an android user for the last three years, I feel like its time for a change.

    Also, first post on the iMore forums!

    They could just call it iPhone 6th gen.

    My ip4 works so well that I feel like a dope, but I'm going to upgrade anyway. I skipped one gen but I can't ever skip two.

    I was so close to going android again but I could see myself coming back to iOS. S3 looks great and all but there are far too many android phones that are released each year.

    Thus, you won't know if you will get an update or if it's even any good (ask some rezound owners). Android lineup is too random and there isn't any "controlled" feel to it. Any company can come out and make a handset with whatever skin over gingerbread, ics or jellybean.

    I am now trying to stay away from android as all I would like to do is root and rom the sucker. It would distract me from what I am trying to do (study for MCATs for example) in life. iOS just handles what I need out of it and that's we need to look for in technology to improve our lifestyle, I believe anyway.

    well...they say it will be a complete diffrent iPhone, so I'm very curious about that. I really hope it will be a huge change. I'm running with the iPhone 4 and it bores me...from the design point of view and from the technical point of view...

    btw.: look what i've found considering release dates and stuff...we'll see how long it'll take this time. watch this apple statistic:
