    After installing IOS 8 and pretty happy with it I think I will keep my 5S for another year and wait for the 6S.
    What will I be missing out if I don't get the 6..."not much". Thinner phone, larger screen and NFC and I am not sure the processor will be that much faster and oh yes the 6 or 6S will have a HD display. Untill i walk into a Bestbuy or Apple store who knows I might change my mind but right now hmmmmm no. What's your thoughts and opinion on this?
    Thanks

    I'm kinda feeling the same way, but the screen size of the iPhone 6 and 6plus is ....ENTICING.

    If I had the cash available I would get the 6/6+ for sure. Leaning more toward the plus. But I'll have to wait on a 6S plus.

    My wife is up for an upgrade from her 4S. I told her to get the 6, but she said she would be fine with the 5S. Apparently the smaller screen is more preferred. I imagine Apple will keep the 5S for a while depending on how the demand is.

    The biggest plus (pun intended) is the screen size and the 128GB option.
    I'm out of that phase where I NEED a new phone yearly.

    I love the S models- when you upgrade on the S cycles you get your money's worth:
    1) new design
    2) upgrades of the regular iPhone model
    3) upgrades of the iPhone S models
    4) new features of two iOS versions

    I am thinking the same thing. I ordered my wife her iPhone 6 Plus today and was about to give them the go ahead to send me one as well but just could not pull the trigger. I am going to wait and see how I like hers. The main thing I am scared of is the size. If and when I upgrade I may just get the 6. I don't know if I could deal with something as big as the Plus hanging on my side all day.

    So much for that, lol, walked in just to take a look and ended up walking out with the 6.

    If it makes you feel better, I returned my 6 after using it for a day and will be getting a new 5S instead. Didn't care for the phone. Beautiful screen though.

    What will you miss by not getting the 6...

    The hype?

    I'm keeping my 5S but I pre-ordered the 6 Plus 128GB because of it and that I have an addiction.

    I am keeping my 5s as well for now. I walked into AT&T and checked out the demo models yesterday. The screens were gorgeous but nothing else tempted me.

    I'd really love to get the 6 plus but I just can't justify spending the money. I still love the design of the 5s more than any other phone out there. It also works very well. Perhaps if I had a lot of disposable income I would do it, but I would still miss my 5s. I will wait until the 6s plus.

    I have to stay away from the Apple Store. I couldn't resist upgrading to the 5s from the 5 when I took my 5 in there for the sleep:awake button.

    So I may not be able to walk out of there without making a commitment on a 6.

    Was at the Bestbuy store yesterday close to closing time that way nobody stands behind to check the phone 6 and rush me but anyway I checked it out and was not impressed and decided to stick with my iphone 5s which still looks like new. The iphone 6 is really not that much bigger and i don't need NFC and the 5S display is still gorgeous and the processor speed is slightly slower than the iphone 6 which makes me believe that when the 6S comes out there will be many hardware changes and that makes sense. I am up for a new phone and unfortunately the 6 did not impress me at all.

    All that has changed is:
    - screen size
    - faster chip
    - nfc
    - camera (nothing too special)

    That's not enough for me to upgrade. If anything, I'm waiting for the 6s...

    The only thing immediate is the NFC ApplePay! You have to buy the Watch to use it with the 5S which comes out in April. Otherwise, it will take two-three years to full use the Wi-Fi 802.11ac in public and LTE 4 will take that long or longer. So, you can use the 5S for a good three years; if you do not upgrade the iOS every year! I am not going to upgrade to iOS8 until much later on this year or never. I want to have my 5S to remain fast and with no lags. Each upgrade you do; you just slow your mobile device operation just a bit more. After 3 new iOS; it doe run to well. But if you don't upgrade to future iOSes; and you get all the apps now and not upgrade the apps; you will be fine for a long time to come!

    I lied. I ordered a white/silver 64 gb iPhone 6.

    Expected delivery says 10/13-10/22, hope I don't have to wait that long.
