    On the internet, I keep seeing articles about the iPhone 6 being a revolutionary phone that's going to change the game for Apple.

    My question is, should I get the 5S or wait for the iPhone 6? Do you think it's going to come out in August like the rumors say? The longest I can wait for before getting a new phone is around August 27th.

    Thanks guys!

    I have no idea if the iPhone 6 will release in August but I sure hope it does. Does Apple announce the new iPhone's during WWDC, or is that a separate event? In any case I would definitely try to hold out until the iPhone 6 is announced before upgrading to a 5s. But if worse comes to worst you could always just sell the 5s and pay the difference for the 6.

    You're barely over 3 months away from the alleged launch of the next iPhone so therefore, I suggest that you wait, if you can. You will still be able to purchase the iPhone 5S, and at a reduced rate, if you find that its successor is not what you want.

    To me it doesn't really matter. I just need a new phone before August 30th.

    Oh okay. Well, you may have to go with the 5S, but try to hold off until after WWDC, if you can, just in case something special is revealed that could launch prior to Aug. 30th.

    I am. I'd much rather get the 6 than the 5S since the 5S is almost a year old.

    If your 4S is giving you problems how much can you swap it for at the Genius bar? Wait for the 6 and sell the refurb 4S when you get the 6? Just don't sign a contract for a 5S now, you may want the 6.

    it really boils down to what you want from your next phone. iOS8 will be pushed to all (current) phones, so software wise it will not be a huge difference, both 5S and 6 will run it smoothly and provide a superior experience. If the thought of a 4.7" screen gets you pumped, wait for the 6. If you like the 5S screen size better, go for the 5S. Both will guarantee you a top notch OS experience for the next two years at least.

    I would wait, since, as other have said, it may only be a few months away.

    I'm in a similar boat.

    I'm trying to hold off getting a 5s to replace my Note 3 but it's proving difficult to do so.

    Waiting until after WWDC is a great idea though. Who knows what will be unveiled then.

    Honestly if you can wait until 8-27 I would say wait a few weeks longer. If you don't like what they announce get the current iPhone 5s, if you like it you only have a couple of weeks to go before its on sale. If you buy it in August you are stuck with it for a long time and you may not be happy.

    It's a win win situation if you get the 5s you will have a quality industry leading smartphone for a few months and then a very good quality phone with leading Apple software in the fall

    I suggest waiting the 3 months (approx), if for some reason the 6 doesn't appeal to you ....you can always get the 5s probably at a reasonable low price once the 6 is released.

    IMO If you are thinking on getting a iPhone 5s by now, you would have one already... Bottom line you would have found a way to get it... Off contract, buying used, etc...

    So with that said, is there a reason to wait? No and Yes.. Will you be able to accomplish the same things with a 5S as you will with a new iPhone 6, yes.. But it's not new.... Some of those things effect people day in and day out.. But remember it's not my money your spending on the device...


    I say get what makes you happy and a accomplished person everyday.

    go for it i just did the same thing i know i am going to most likely get the 6 however i still ordered the unlocked version from apple gold 32gb to hold me over until the new one comes i will be able to sell it to cover at least half the cost of the new one since it will be only 3-4months old unlocked and 32gb all good enjoy i know i am enjoying my 5s.

    I have been asking myself the same question. I think I will hold off for the release of the 6 though.

    I'd wait for the iPhone 6 but I wouldn't wait in line at a store unless Apple has a online preorder and I am only in line to pick up a phone that I already paid for.

    I would get the 5s use it carefully and when the 6 comes out and attract me, I will sell the 5S to buy the 6

    At WWDC they announced it would come out in the fall so I'm pretty sure it'll be later than August

    If you don't need a larger screen, there is nothing wrong with the 5s and it will easily be able to handle anything you throw at it for the foreseeable future. I mean the a7 chip hasn't even really been fully pushed yet, so it will continue humming along even if it's not "the newest" out

    It's only a few months and I say wait. And if you want the 5s still when the 6 comes out, the 6c or a used 5s would save you money...
