    I'm just curious if anyone on here is not getting either of the new iPhones and is sticking with the 5s until the 6s and 6 Plus s come out, or even waiting for the 7.

    Right now there aren't any 6 Pluses in stock with 128 GB or 64 GB capacities in my area that are on VZW. If this is still the case for me by the end of this month or in November, then I might have to wait as long as March or until my upgrade in November 2015 for the 6 Plus s.

    I don't plan on it. I love the size of the 5s- it actually feels more like a phone than anything else. I have a tablet and a laptop for applications that require more functionality, and by that I mostly mean bigger screen size. Not interested in changing phone sizes until I absolutely have to.

    I'm not upgrading to the iPhone 6 or 6 plus. I enjoy my 5S and it does everything I need.

    I forgot to mention that I might ditch Apple and get the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in Jet Black VZW by trading in my 5s and iPad Air and paying the remaining balance.

    I'm keeping my 5s. 6 and 6+ is to big for me. He has to be all day in my pocket. 5s is best size for that.

    I can't believe anyone would trade those two items in and still pay cash on the side.

    If you're going to do that, you're better off selling both those items on your own to get more money out of them, and then by the Note 4.

    My 5s is only a few months old, 6 tops. Once it's time for an upgrade - or I magically come up with enough to pay the phone off - then I will upgrade. Until then, if I can quote the Verizon commercial with regards to my 5s, "♪♫ Juuuuuuust the two of us ♫♪"

    The 5s is a great device, if you have to wait its a good device to do it with.

    It is not that I do not want a 6 or 6 plus, I just bought the 5s recently. Since I am on prepaid it is not available on prepaid cdma, so my answer is not yet.

    Not in any hurry - I have a small hand so the 6+ is definitely off the table, also because I often keep the phone in a shirt pocket - can you imagine keeping that behemoth in a shirt pocket - probably wouldn't even fit in some! Even a pants pocket - yikes... yes, yes, I am happy to see you! (those of my generation will get it, all you younger folks, google Mae West)

    If the same trend continues, there will be a 6S next year with a more significant performance improvement. The biggest size increase favors length of the 6 over the 5s which is not that big a deal - I got plenty of space for folders and icons using only 3 pages now so another row is not compelling. I guess it might be nice for having more space available once the keyboard comes into play, but I see no other benefit of the size, although keyboard use is a big part of my usage. Meanwhile, the little over 1/4" increase in width is not going to allow for any serious increase in text readability. As for the faster LTE - that only matters if your provider has deployed the faster LTE in your area. If I were still in Maine, doubtful, down here near Miami, good chance - so that would be nice but I can wait a year since most of my time is on WiFi. Moreover, my home is 802.11N and I have nothing else on AC, so no benefit for the AC on the 6 unless I want to spend another $200 for a new router... and from what I see, most public WiFi is N or, worse, still at G. By next year we may see AC WiFi becoming more common and maybe router prices will start to drop.

    So, in my case, waiting for the next iPhone is the best option - besides, I got another year on my contract subsidized 5S - although I see VZW is offering a free trade up... Hmmm!

    Nope for me. Actually got the 6, then returned to the 5S. The size is just something I'm not ready to get used to if I don't have to. After having the 6 for a week, calling it an upgrade is a stretch in my opinion. The screen is bigger of course, but as far as performance goes, I can't tell one bit of difference. And, I'll add this....I CAN NOT STAND how slippery the 6 and 6+ are. Drives me nuts. In turn, they both feel very fragile. I don't get that feeling from the 5S.

    If you can find a 4 or 4s and see what that feels like without a case. The glass back made the 4 series slippery.

    I prefer the design of my brand new gold 5S over the 6/6+. Secondly, my cousin bought one and it has zero difference in the performance department. Its not even slightly faster than my 5S. Only a bigger screen alone is not worth the upgrade. Besides, I hate the camera on the 6 and 6+.

    I'm not getting a new iPhone but I was just at the Apple Store and I tried the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus and I have to say I like the 6 but the 6 Plus is to big for me. I might get the 6S though.

    The jury is still out for me in getting the iPhone 6/6+. I like the look and feel of the 5s MUCH better, but the screen size of the 6/6+ is enticing.

    I'm in this same predicament. I LOVE my 5C but at the same time I'm interested in the screen size of the 6 too. I was gunning for the 6+ originally, but now I'm not so sure. Even at this time I'm considering going with the gold 5S.

    SOOOO...ATM I'm not upgrading to anything till I'm 100% sure what I'd like to do

    Go to the apple store or carrier store and try the phones out to see what they are like, that's what I did before I made my decision.

    Thanks for the advice acerace, but I have done that I already know what the 5S will be like because I currently have the 5C, so you if I went this route it would be a minor upgrade for me considering the 5S has a bit better specs than my 5C does, plus I would get the 32gb this time around if I went 5S.

    Now if I went 6 or 6+, obviously that would be a huge upgrade right there & I'd go with the 64gb (4x's my current storage space). Thing is, I'm not overly concerned with having the absolute latest and greatest of the 6/6+....would I like the bigger screen? yes but at the same time I feel comfortable enough with the 4" screen size now and adjusting text size within the iOS is also helping out. Plus I've also rationed costs. 32gig gold 5S will be 150, plus AC+ and a case to start off with, out the door I'd be looking at approx $300. If I went 6, out the door I'd be about 450 - so then it also comes down to weighing in if spending that extra $150 for me will be justified as far as where I stand if I want the absolute latest and greatest.

    Ok...so I'll stop rambling on now lol

    I haven't decided yet. I'm still on my iPhone 5. My upgrade is in January. Waiting 7 more months for the 6s is an option. Getting a new iPhone 5s and an iPad Mini retina is also on the table. Decisions, Decisions!!

    Pink, you are absolutely doing the "right thing" by weighing the "overall" pros and cons based on your experience and situation. All that is left to do is to make the final decision before enjoying your new device...

    Yeah, I looked at the cost for me and I have an upgrade for my line on September 27, 2015. The only thing I can do right now is buy outright and the 64 GB iPhone 6 here in Canada is $859, for a 2 year contract its $374. I don't get AC+ but though my carrier I get something else that covers water damage. I did got to an Apple Store to try the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus and I like the 6 but over my 5S its not much of an upgrade. I will be getting the 6S for sure though cause of the performance difference. But I'm also looking at the project ara phone by Google since I like the idea of changing parts when and what I want. I'll see when the next iPhone is released though.
