    Hi everyone, finding it hard to pull the trigger on upgrading from my 6s Plus to the 7 or 7 Plus.

    Anyone here upgrade from the 6s Plus? If so, with all honesty, do you feel it was worth the upgrade?

    If I had a 6 I would be all over it but as it stands I just can't seem to feel it is a worthy upgrade from the 6s Plus. Thoughts?

    Just curious if anyone here with a 7 got it to replace their 6s Plus. If so, why?

    I thought it was a move in the right direction in terms of portability; but missing the screen size and battery life now

    Yes, I did. I initially purchased a black iPhone 7 to replace my Gold iPhone 6S Plus. Why? I simply wanted the iPhone 7. I enjoyed everything about the iPhone 7, including its size, but after using it for 2 weeks, I swapped it out the the iPhone 7 Plus because I realized that I prefer its size more as opposed to that of the iPhone 7.

    Hi!

    To be honest with you I would have to say no it's not really worth upgrading to from a 6s Plus. If you were like one or two iphone generations behind (like I was) then it would be a yes. If you 6s Plus still works fine, I would wait a year for the iphone 8 as it's rumored to be a BIG release from apple.

    Simple answer.... NO.

    iPhone 6S Plus > iPhone 7 Plus > iPhone 7 > iPhone 6S Plus

    wait for next year.

    To me, this is a personal choice. I have (still have it in a drawer) an iPhone 6s Plus, 64GB, with Apple care (expires in March 2017).

    I preordered an iPhone 7 Plus 64GB, Black. Did I need it? Not really, but I like playing with gadgets and the latest gadget. That's my only vice; albeit an expensive one. So...

    I doubt it since they don't exist. Did you mean 32GB or 128GB perhaps?

    Nope. Not in my opinion.
    Unless you care a LOT about the Plus's camera and the extra GB of RAM.

    It's new with a few new features. That's enough for some users. Not me though. I'll wait until next year.

    I had an iPhone 6S+ for a year and have had the iPhone 7+ since getting it
    when it was first delivered in the States. As someone who's had both phones, I think the upgrade is absolutely worth it. For me, I like the speed and camera, because people dont talk about how powerful the 7+ is. Its a beast! Some people like the storage. Thing is, whatever your main motivation might be, you get all of the bonuses that come with the phone.

    Now, if you really need the money for something else, like a kidney transplant, then save the upgrade cost. But if the question is whether youll have a better phone with some cool new capabilities, you will.

    If you are already doubting about this choice, then I think it answers your question. The new phone isn't as appealing to you with new features or improvements that you really really want. So better save the money for next model

    I'm also on a 6S+ and don't feel that much of a need to go to 7, so I'll wait at least another year.

    I do not think it is worth it. Its incremental upgrades from the 6s. The new camera system is very intriguing, but I really don't think that it is worth the upgrade. I almost did, and now I am very happy I did not. I will be getting the next one.

    I'd say it's only worth it if you deem it's worth it. Ultimately it's your money. Your investment. It's worth it if you simply want the latest and greatest Apple has to offer.

    I personally went from the 6S to the 7 Plus and it was definitely worth it to me. My wife went from the 6 to the 7 and she probably couldn't tell you a difference. She would still have her 6 had I not upgraded for her, honestly.

    Point being, everyones experience varies. What is worth it to one may not be worth it to the next. I'd say make the jump and if you don't enjoy it..switch back.

    (7plus) Better camera + haptic home button + water resistance + no headphone jack + higher processor (I don't think i can even see the differences) vs 6s plus. If these points are crucial enough for you and you have no issue for spending, then replace

    The Iphone 7 is an evolution of 6S obviously think the 6S is 90% 7, the question is if for you worth that difencia 10%, more power, better screen, waterproof and camera, but iPhone 6S is really about 7 in all those sections.

    Really, other than a bit faster processor and camera, there's only so much you can do on the same platform IMO. The OS is the real factor I think and 10 seems to run decently on all the recent phones..... My suggestion is don't get sucked in by the new phone hype.

    I think it's definitely worth the upgrade if you have to have the latest and greatest like me. I have to have the newest iPhone in my circle of iPhone wielding family members. Lol

    If not and you have a 6S/6S Plus, stick with it and wait for the 8.
