    I'm saving, but really mostly just ready for it...already. I'm still using my trusty old iPhone 5S, which I've had since its release all those years ago. So to say I'm ready is an honest under statement. I'm to the point I feel all the pain of all I've missed out on over the years. Bigger screen, huger screen, and all of the other smaller things that now add iPhone to quite a learning curve as soon as the new model is released. But I'm actually quite eager for it to get too. Come On September!!! :-)

    I am not sure what is next for me. Very happy w iP7. Next phone needs to be more than iteration. Otherwise, the cost-benefit doesn't make sense. At some level I am looking beyond the phone. What's the next big innovation? I will be patient and open minded.

    Of course I am saving up. I always do, going all the way back to the blackberry days. Only this time around, the 7plus is so powerful, I can wait for the fury to die down after launch, then get a new one. Must be a sheeple.

    I have been buying the carrier unlocked phones for two years now, and will continue to do so whether its Android or the iPhone. I simply will not buy a carrier locked phone, the annoying part is having to wait 2 months post launch to get an unlocked phone, but with the next iteration it could be much worse "if" the yield and other rumored issues are true, but then again the same types of rumors get put out there every year.

    I haven't had the 7+ long so I may hold off on the 8. Both the wife and son have 6S+'s so they may grab the 8.

    My 7 works just fine. Ive got no reason to upgrade. My 6s+ would have been just fine too, but some circumstances forced me to switch carriers so now I have the 7. The way this is going for me, I probably wont be upgrading again until around when the iPhone 10 is coming out.

    Let's just say I'm anticipating a $1000 sized dent in my account around the end of year. What I don't know is if I fork over the extra cash for the anniversary model.

    Still happy with my 6+. Only thing I wish is having more storage. Probably will just upgrade to a 6s+ or a 7+ when the new one comes out for a discounted price. Can't notice a huge difference in speed between this one and my wife's 7+ so don't see the need to pay a huge difference anymore or upgrading every year like I used to

    I'm not specifically saving up money for the next iPhone but saving up for the next device that makes me say 'Wow'.

    If Apple can bring wireless charging, embedded fingerprint sensor and maybe a OLED screen with dual curved edges then I may just pull the trigger.

    There wasn't much hype last year but I'm feeling it this year. Especially with the 'Anniversary' version floating around. I have a feeling this will be one of those iPhones you keep as a collectors item. Super special.
    You better be careful at what you wish for, curved screen- not sure it is a good idea. OLED definitely not good.
    Starting hearing on Samsung side that the screen brake

    I'm going to make my decision after Apple does the launch presentation. I've done the same thing in the past and it served me well. The iPhone 7 Plus for example was not a device I was going to buy at launch. The upgrade from my 6s Plus was marginal at best and I was losing the headphone jack. I'll take the same wait and see approach with the 8 or whatever the new iPhone may be called.

    Nope. Instead, I bought an iPhone 7 256GB used from eBay. It should be a great next phone for me (I'm still using my 6s, which I love). My only regret is not getting the rose gold version (I got matte black).

    Maybe someone will be willing to trade Rose Gold for Matte Black, you never know until you try.

    I would never pay top dollar for a smartphone. I wait a while and get it after price is lowered or used.
