    Hello,

    I was wondering if I should buy the iPhone 7 Plus now or wait for the 7s to come out within the the next 150 days. But they would sell out really quickly so wouldn't really be able to get one until Christmas.

    Just wanting thoughts from other wether or not the 7s would be a big change from the 7 and worth the wait.

    Thanks

    I'm one of the people who believes in getting what you need now. The next iPhone model may not be all you thought it would be or it may not be as much of an upgrade from the current iPhone.

    Wait. You'll be glad you did. The next iPhone is rumored to be a complete overhaul and you'll be able to get it way before Christmas.

    If you need it for facebook and instagram wait, if its going to earn you some money get it now.

    Based on the rumours it could be delayed until Q1 2018...but at the very least the 7S models should be available

    Is Apple even working on a 7S model with the 8 on the way?

    Only Apple knows that. We will learn in September at the keynote.

    I'm one of those people who believe in "tomorrow isn't promised to you, so enjoy life today". I say go for it and be happy today and let tomorrow take of itself.

    Firstly, Warm welcome to iMore @golotta Always nice to see some new faces around here.

    I would have to agree with @Just_Me_D & @Spencerdl There will always be 'another iPhone' coming out which WILL be better than the previous so it's an endless waiting cycle. Unless we are about 1 month from the release of a new iPhone i would say get the current version available. The iPhone 7 is one of the best in the business right now and I'm sure you will LOVE it.

    I know the rumours always look good but sometimes you just have to enjoy whats available now

    LOL this is actually a very valid point. Now that you think about it, you probably might as well wait the 4 months for it to come out, unless you really need to get the current 7 for legitimate reasons.

    Had you asked in January or something, it may have made a little more sense, but not really now.

    You forgot 3G>3GS

    Funny though the second iPhone was called 3 because it offered 3G service so 2 was skipped. Then they did a "S" 3G and carried on to the 4 as it really was the 4th.

    If you are wanting it now get it. Only you can make that choice. I am happy with my 7Plus and will keep this phone. It's updated regularly and hasn't let me down on performance like other phones have in the past. Love it

    If you don't need a phone now, wait. And wait for the rumored i8 or edition. Whatever they call it. I wouldn't go 7s if they launch that along with the 8.

    I'd say get it now, but if you are someone who needs the latest and greatest you might be upset when the new one comes out. Of course if you are that sort of person it is probably hard to wait for the new one as well. You are really between a rock and hard place haha.

    I guess it also depends on what you are currently using. If it is a 6S, then maybe wait, but if a 5 or something older, then it might be worth upgrading now.
