    Currently own an iPhone 5c. I would like to upgrade to the 6. The 6 Plus is just too dam big for me. Not a big fan of huge phones.

    Wondering though if I should wait a few months until the 6S is released or just go ahead and buy the 6 now.

    Was checking out my AT&T account and I could get the 6 with 128GB for something like $29 a month with the Next 24 thing. Now, doing the math I would be paying almost $900 for this phone over 30 months. I think this is just nuts.

    I've never paid more than $99 for any phone I've owned. I've always waited until I was eligible for an upgrade. So this would be the first time I spend so much on a phone.

    If I buy the phone with an extension to my contract for an additional 2 yrs, I would pay upfront $649 I think.

    All this considered, what should I do? I really want a new iPhone.

    I have a yellow 5C 32GB model and thinking of upgrading it with 6S in September.

    I would wait for the 6S if I were you!

    - fix bending problem
    - better camera
    - 2GB LPDDR4 RAM - 3X faster
    - Force Touch screen
    - Even better Touch ID scanner
    - 14nm A9 SoC 20% faster; 30 less power needed.
    - 1080p screen?
    - new color(s)
    - improve graphics rendering engine
    - LTE Cat 6
    - Wi-Fi 802.11ac+

    I just got mine yesterday. The way I see it, the 6S doesn't seem like it's gonna blow the 6 out of the water. Your choice if you think the 6S supposedly upgrades are worth the wait.

    This is complete speculation there is no proving truth to anything said in this post. Anyway there will be a updated iPhone but we do not know what's being upgraded yet. The 6 is a great phone I upgrade every year the 6 is fantastic though

    I would say wait, only around 4 - 5 months until the 6S comes out. If you don't like the 6S in September most carriers will probably start discounts on the older 6 models, plus it gives you time to save up some dough!

    All in all though its your choice, and at the end of the day its just a phone Good luck!

    5C is still a solid phone. I'd hold on if you can wait until the 6S specifications are officially released to see if a move to that, or the 6 is right for you.

    You literally just made all of this up...or you're naive enough to believe someone else who just made it up. None of this is factual information what so ever.

    This is what forums are for. Less anger is good. The OP is looking for advice and input. OP I'd wait. The next release is closer than the last release.

    I think you should wait for it. I kind of felt the "urge" (if it can be called like that) 'cause I had an iPhone 4, so I just upgraded to iPhone 6. But you don't have a bad device, I think you can wait for it

    I would wait for the 6s then buy the 6 used. You know half of these folks in here will run and upgrade to the newer model.

    I say wait. You're almost there so might as well just wait and weigh your options. At worst, you can buy the 6 at a discount when they announce the new phone.

    On another note, my coworker asked me a similar question but I ended up telling him to wait simply because Apple has recently raised the prices in Canada for iPhone's on contract. $479 for the 16gb 6+ and $599 for the 64gb. To me this wasn't worth the upgrade especially since a new iPhone is around the corner.

    Gotcha...I guess I'm just part of a generation that refuses to rely on crowd sourced decision making.

    "Hey guys! What do you like? Because that is what I'm going to acclimate myself to liking. Will someone choose my preference for me? Thanks!"

    In these situations the OP has to make the decision based on what they want or need. No one knows that but the OP. I bought a 4S about 3 months before the iPhone 5 came out because I couldn't wait to get back to iOS after having a HTC EVO 3D. So my desire to get back on iOS outweighed the iPhone 5 coming in 3 months.
    So the OP has to examine their wants,needs and desires and financial issues concerning a new phone.

    I say wait. The 6S will be out and you will want that when it comes out.

    If you are happy with a 5c for the next several months then I'd hold out for the next gen. But at this point you're a little over halfway through the 6 lifecycle. It's still well worth the upgrade.

    First off, SeanHRCC's advice is spot on. Do what you want.

    That being said, my recommendation would be that if you don't need a new phone now, wait 4 months for the 6S. We're 2/3 through a product cycle and you'll be getting a current model just before the new model comes up. the 6S will surely have upgraded hardware that will be worth waiting for.

    If your 5C works now, stick it out a bit longer.
