    I'm not due for a full upgrade till Sep. 2014. I don't want to waste a partial upgrade on a refresh only, therefore I'll either keep my iPhone 5 or get the unlocked 5S version direct from Apple when it"s released.

    I have the 4S. I'd have to see what comes out next before upgrading, as I'm pretty happy with what I have.

    Im going to agree on the 128 plus the verizon version has to have data / voice same time
    Yeah I'm going for it anyway because I just came back to iOS last year so I definitely want to get the 5S.

    If there's a 128 version and if it can do data/voice on Verizon I will be ecstatic!

    I have a upgrade now but I'm thinking on passing. Waiting for next year. No rumors I'm hearing tells me it's a must have. I'm very happy with my 5.

    I've been due an upgrade since april.
    I've been holding off as the 4s that I have is fine just now.
    I'll be upgrading to the new iphone the day it comes out. (Or the day after)

    I paid full for the 5 when it came out, just to save my upgrade. I haven't heard any rumors that make me drool over what might be coming, so until the keynote I'll remain undecided. After that I will make that decision. Maybe just a new Otterbox Defender will keep me going???

    I have 16 lines for business. I buy the guys used phones for the field because they're tough on them. So I always have upgrades available which is nice. It's a bad habit, but it will be to have the latest and greatest.

    How many of you who own the iPhone 5 right now have decided on upgrading to the 5S when it's released in September? Also, why?

    Is it to just have the latest and greatest? Or are the rumors surrounding the new device excite you?

    For me, I would want to get the new iPhone 5s because it's the latest and greatest. I have also heard that the camera is going to stay at 8 megapixels but the sensor is going to be upgraded. Dual flash and a new home button all sound pretty awesome. But what is going to be offered with the 5S that currently isn't available with the 5?

    When the 4S came out, they made Siri available strictly to the 4S and that's what really set the 4 and the 4S apart.

    But what gimmick will apple use this year to gear you towards upgrading to the 5S?

    I myself just upgraded recently from an iPhone 5 16 gig ( dropped in toilet without insurance ) to an iPhone 5 32 gig and I'm quite happy about it. But the little kid in me still wants the latest and greatest even though it's probably not necessary.

    What are your thoughts iMore?
    I plan on upgrading to the 5s for the reason that 6 months ago switching to my first iPhone I thought 16gig would fill my needs but I was wrong so I want more storage so that's part of the reason but I also told myself I will keep with the latest and greatest idea as well but the old if it ain't broke don't fix it always comes to mind.

    I won't be upgrading. iOS 7 on the 5 will be plenty amazing to keep me happy another year. I can't justify spending that extra $600 to upgrade on a 2nd year.
    I don't think there would be the majority that would and feel the same way you do. I am also sure there will be plenty that will. I myself since I have a 4S and and upgrade to go if the new phone is just a minor update and and new iOS then i would lean to the 5 to save money. As I have already posted if the new phone is significant and at least stays as the same form factor as the 5 with the same materials then I would upgrade all the way.

    Also if we (Verizon) get simultaneous phone and data I will definitely upgrade. So often I'm in a job site and need to look something up while on a call. That would be great.

    I have an i5 that is in excellent condition, with all of the original packaging (and it's a 32gb). Which means that in a week or two, I will be selling my phone on ebay in order to buy a 5s at release time! I have two upgrades available, but don't want to sign a contract just yet.

    Re-sale prices are plummeting on the 5s and 4Ss, and according to several studies, the ideal time to sell was a few weeks ago. Plus I doubt the next gen phone will be shipping before end of September.

    I want a better battery. thats the biggest issue for me and is enough alone to prompt an upgrade, even at full price, if they improve it dramatically like they did with the new computers. I want a bigger screen because it would be easier for me to read, but I doubt thats coming. if it does though, its also something that would prompt me to upgrade without question. increasing the storage is something I very much want but if that's literally all they did, I couldn't justify an upgrade. same for the fingerprints and camera improvements. if they do all three, then its getting very tempting. Then there's other stuff like a faster CPU and such that I don't care about and definitely wouldn't prompt me to upgrade. the phone 5 is already pretty fast, so if thats all they did to the 5S was made it faster I wouldn't bother upgrading. I'm in wait and see mode right now. What will apple bring to the table? I hope they've been on the ball.

    I'll be upgrading most likely - although I guess it depends on what new tech they unveil. If it's things like the rumored fingerprint sensor - I'm in. Larger screen I wouldn't really care that much - I like the size if the 5 as-is.

    Even though the iPhone 5s is less than a month away I can't help but be more excited for the 6! New design and maybe even a bigger screen. iOS 8!

    I will upgrade since I'm still using iphone4. I've decided to not upgrade to i5 but now is the right time to do it.

    Hope can be soon

    I got the 5 in October as part of my employers corporate account offering. The iPhone was essentially free and so far works great! No reason to upgrade this year. Next time I do I think I'll buy outright.

    Actually I have an old phone that I can use in the meantime (until the release). Also I have sold phones on ebay before (including iphones) and gotten my asking price or better. The reason why is because I keep all original boxes, receipts, packaging, purchase apple care and do free overnight shipping for the winning bidder. I have a 32gb I5, which I know I could easily get my asking price for. It would also be cheaper than retail pricing for someone who damaged their phone and has no insurance to replace it with. There are auctions on ebay within the last 24hrs that were closed out with winning bids over 500.00 for the 16gb model alone. Mine's a step above that, so I'm good. Only decision I need to make is if I want to stay off contract with vz or sign a new one and get contract pricing.
