    I have a 6 Plus (16gb) & I'm Jump Eligible.

    The main reason to upgrade is to get more space - between pictures and other file types, 16GB just isn't cutting it.

    Do I wait until the possibility of an iPhone 7Plus or just upgrade now?

    I would say wait for 7 plus. It might come with 4gb ram.

    That's a tough decision. If you keep waiting for the newest and greatest you'll be forever waiting. I understand where you're coming from though, 16 gigs just doesn't get it with todays smart phones. It's not as bad in the iOS world as it is in android where it seems there's a new phone every few months. In short, I'd say go for it now. You certainly won't regret it. Unless the 7 is out of this world, which with my luck it probably will be and I'll just have to have it.

    There will be an iPhone 7 and I would be shocked if they stepped away from the larger screen of the Plus. That being said, you won't see an iPhone 7 until September (most likely).
    The 6s Plus is a great device that will serve you well but if you're like me and always want the latest and greatest then wait.

    Go for it, or you could always wait for the 7.

    If the reason is storage, then yes, it's probably in your interest to upgrade now and I'd recommend doing so.

    The 6S/6S+ is a nice jump from the 6/6+, especially with the 2GB of RAM - makes a huge difference in day-to-day usage. But, you're getting closer to what would be a mid-cycle update, which bothers some people. It wouldn't bother me as I tend to like S-cycle releases anyways, and if I needed a new iPhone now, I'd get one (if it was July or August, though, not so much - I'd wait if at all possible). If you do bite the bullet and upgrade now, the current 6S/6S+ would continue to serve you well into the future and whatever S-cycle comes out in the Fall of 2017 though...

    In the alternative to using your jump upgrade now, have you looked into purchasing a used 6+/6S+ on sites like swappa or Glyde? On swappa right now (10:00 a.m. Eastern on March 7), the low price on a T-Mobile specific 64GB 6+ is $510 and $630 on a 64GB 6S+. You would have to pay in full, but you could sell your current 6+ to offset some of the cost now. This option could get you the storage you need now while reserving your Jump for the 7/7+ this Fall.

    As to the possibility of a 7/7+, I'd say it is a near certainty that there will be a 7+ - I don't see Apple moving away from the phablet territory given the popularity of the 6+/6S+.

    Personally I would wait for the 7 to make its appearance. I currently have a 6 and would now like a Plus, but I will wait until September and be fully upgraded then. Storage size would be the only thing that would make me purchase one now.

    If you are paying for JUMP, you might as well use it. Otherwise you are just paying T-mobile for no reason. (They might have changed the terms since the last time I looked at it)

    question is. can you deal with 16GB of storage until October? That is 8 Months away. a long time.
    if not upgrade and grab the 7 March of next year. there will be plenty in stock and they will have kinks worked out by then.

    This.

    If you can wait til fall to actually get your hands on it, then wait. But if it were me I'd probably be pulling my hair out with only 16gb and would want to upgrade now.

    You could always hang on to your 6, and if down the road Apple announces something amazing for the 7, go back to using your 6 and try to sell the 6S to get the 7...but I'm just spitballing. Ultimately if you keep waiting, there will always be something amazing around the corner.

    Pull the trigger now, you won't regret the 6S+

    While the 6s Plus is better than the 6 Plus in every way, you are now half way through the upgrade cycle for Apple. My honest opinion is to wait for the next phone at this point. You could always use Dropbox, Onedrive or Google Photos to manage your photos on the cloud. I wouldn't want to be 6 months into last years model when the latest and greatest is released.

    I just left my Note 4 for the iPhone 6s Plus. I have the 128gig. So far I'm enjoying it I. One thing I do know is that the battery life is great.

    I'd wait for the 7. It's right around the corner, and you could try and use some cloud services to tide you over until then.

    There will always be a new phone so If you really feel you need one then go for it.

    I personally change my phone every 2 or so years so I find being on the "S" models much better. That way you are on the second generation of the new device so any issues have been corrected and it's been improved a bit as well.

    I love my 6S+ and I think this will be a great device until a 7S model comes out.

    I could have just kept my Nexus 6p till the iPhone 7 came out. That's basically 6-7 months away and I missed having an iPhone and iOS to wait that long. Been back on the 6S Plus for a couple weeks now.
