    I wouldn't be surprise if they keep the 4 inch screen size in the future and just call it the iPhone mini.

    The 5S is going to continue for another year at least in both 16GB & 32GB to start with, then they probably drop the 32GB version sometime next year and just continue with the 16GB version.

    As it been shown the 5S isn't that much slower than the 4.7" 6, so those who decided to keep the 5S for another year until the 6S are making a wise decision I think.

    I'm wondering if apple will release a cheaper 8gb model for the 5S? Just to use the 8gb chips they probably still have

    I can see them doing that next year and just phase the 5C out totally (except for countries in Africa, india, etc).

    Yes, confirmed, I'm staying with the 5s for another year.

    I have a 5s as my main phone and a 5 as my "travel to the US and use on T-Mobile" phone. Can't justify the upgrade -- justified last year's with "I need both phones to be LTE-capable, and 64-bit chips and TouchID make it worthwhile".

    That being said, will likely upgrade to the 6s next year and use my 5s as my travel phone. Definitely buying the Apple Watch.

    I think I will. The 5.5" model really interests me, but I'm not rich so I may just have to stay with the 5s for another year, which isn't a bad thing since it's still a great phone and serves me well.

    Been going back and forth. Even preordered the iPhone 6 plus in space grey 128 GBs of goodness. But then realized that I really don't need to spend the extra cash to get something I really don't need. I have the iPad Air to address my big screen needs and I have the 5S that does the rest. I'm happy for now. I was also thinking of switching carriers, but I thought better of that too. I have no issues with AT&T. But I was tempting by the unlimited data by T-Mobile. But I don't need unlimited data either. I just need a network that I can count on and that has been AT&T.

    I currently have the iPhone 4s which has been a great phone until I upgraded to ios 7.1.xx. I wanted a larger iphone screen but wasn't happy with the iphone specs or there lack of. I will wait for the iphone 6s or 7.

    Last night I bought an iPhone 5s so it will be a vast improvement for my slow 4s. I also didn't have the money to buy the unlocked 128 gig phone. I'll wait until I'm better suited and have the money saved.

    I'm hoping for an iPhone 6 mini, next year maybe instead of a C.

    Most of the people I know who use iPhones are split on the new sizes; one group really likes to bigger screens and the others are saying they will never buy a phone with a bigger screen than the 5s. It would make sense that the 6c would be the size of the current 5s.

    I think the population that will have the hardest transition will be runners and gym goers used to having the phone strapped to their arms.

    4.7" would probably work, but I think 5.5" would be too bulky. For that reason I may just get the 5S.

    The 64GB refurbed models is on att for $199. That's a pretty good deal that might go down a dollar or two more on the 19th.

    I do think that it will be a slight issue with runners. Although I usually put my phone in my pocket, I do see how having it strapped to your arm could feel awkward. However, I do see people with Notes strapped to their arms. So maybe it isn't that bad.

    Thanks to the hoopla with the iPhone 6, I was able to grab a 32GB iphone 5S for zero down. I still owed on my 16G iPhone 5, but the trade in was higher than what I owed. I never mind having a generation back phone. I'm happy with more space and a wifi calling ready device.

    Go get with Straight Talk. They run MVNOs on every major carrier. I'm using an iPhone 5S from AT&T on Straight Talk via a SIM card programmed to operate on AT&Ts network. $45 a month gets you unlimited talk, text, and 3GB of LTE. After the 3GB cap you get throttled. APNs program themselves on the iPhone. I literally cannot recommend another cell provider. Tech support is outsourced to idiots, but that's the only catch I've had. Prepaid too.

    Absolutely not lol. Got mine pre-order {6 plus} and can't wait. There are some nice upgrades, from camera to display, and I actually like the design better. However, I'll miss the small size for texting only. It'll be nice to view content in full 1080p, and be able to read an article without pinch to zoom everywhere.

    May upgrade after all, and keep my 5s as my traveller phone.

    There's no justification whatsoever for this other than that I like having the latest toy. The 5s is doing great. (Well, the apps lag a bit on iOS 8 Gold Master, but that's because they haven't been updated yet for the new OS release.)

    I'm good. A big reason I went back to the iPhone and dumped my Nexus was size. The iPhone 5 form factor is perfect for me. Nothing else offered is compelling enough to give up my 5S.

    I'll more than likely stick with my 5S. Should still run good till the 6S and 6S plus release next year. I'm more looking at the watch and seeing if that is something I want.
