    So I"ve had my trusty 4s since it first came out in Novermber 2011. It's been jailbroke for as long as I can remember-- I love that phone. The wife has been an Samsung Galaxy fan for several years, and has gone through the S2, SII and S4, until her S4 started acting up. So this past weekend she tells me that come February she's getting enough of a raise to pay the monthly fee for us to BOTH get new phones! So I'm the proud owner of a new, space gray, 64gb 6s! She upgrade to the Note 5 (which she loves).

    Gotta say, I simply LOVE this phone. Compared with the 4s, this this is so freak'n fast it's almost scary. Que the happy dance music... Updated to iOS9.2 the other day and love it.

    Really is a difference from the the 4s I can only imagine. I went from the 5 to the 6 as that is the cycle I am on and noticed a difference, probably not as much as you. Take you a while to get use to some of the features you did not have though, but once you do, you will wonder why you waited so long.

    Well enjoy that new phone and I am sure you will be doing that happy dance for some time to come. Congrats to your wife as well!

    Thanks all.. still getting used to the larger size of the device though, but am loving the 3D Touch and have been trying to find a store that does Apple-Pay so I can try THAT feature out..lol... There are things though that I still love about my JB'd phone, like the ability to put more than 4 icons on the bottom row...

    I cant seem to get the "double-tap on the home button to bring the top of the screen into reach" option under Settings/General/Accessibility.. I have "Reachability" turned on, but when I double press the home button it brings up list of open apps...

    It's a double tap. Don't actually press it down. Just touch it quickly twice in a row if you get what I mean.

    Will you be jailbreaking the 6s when it's available? I've thought about it, but it's pretty awesome as is. I don't feel a huge need to mess with it, though it might be fun.

    Enjoy your huge upgrade!

    They didn't get released to the public until November. I bought mine the first day they were available.

    Ah I see! Nice. Thank you. Thought it was messed up.

    As for jailbreak. Yup. As soon as a public jb is available for iOS 9.2 I'm all over it (or whatever iOS it turns out to be)

    But you're saying 2013 which was the year the iPhone 5S was released, not the 4S.

    Congrats on the new phone! It's a MAJOR upgrade from the 4s for sure! For Apple Pay, if you're in the U.S. you can try Subway. I've dashed in for a soda and some cookies and Apple Pay made it quick. Make sure you have fingerprints set as well (I have 4 set to make it easy, but mostly use my right thumb)

    Here's a list of stores so far for Apple Pay:

    Apple Pay - Apple

    I cant seem to get the "double-tap on the home button to bring the top of the screen into reach" option under Settings/General/Accessibility.. I have "Reachability" turned on, but when I double press the home button it brings up list of open apps...
    Double click to bring up apps, double tap to access what you're looking for. It's more of a touch on the button than a tap even. Double tap again to get it back the way it was.

    I know, but I loved that phone.. I stuck with it for a number of reasons: size, weight (at the time), and ability to jailbreak. There are still a number of things I love about jailbreak, but I'm finding a lot of what iOS 9.2 can do replicates many of the features I like about jailbreak. Still, if/when a jailbreak comes out for iOS 9.x, I'll be all over that.
