    I'm already a gen behind (6sPlus) but it actually does what I need, I don't use it much for photography, mostly use a camera, use an Ipad Pro 12.9 and still have an old Air if I want smaller form--plus a Macbook Pro 15". I'm not sure I need to upgrade yet. If mine handles IOS11 okay I may stick another year. (I do use it a lot with both my Airpods and Watch but would rather put my money in other devices for now).

    Everything. I have the 7 Plus and it does everything I want.
    I know the majority of people wants the latest model and I get all the hype, I was like that in the past, but today I kinda changed my mind and how I see the world around me. While my iPhone works and does all I need, I won't upgrade it at all. I stopped looking for convenience (which Is becoming more and more expensive) and started to look just for the needs, and my current phone fulfill them perfectly, I will stick with it until iOS is not updated anymore. But hey, it's just my point of view :-)

    I really don't want to pay 1000 or more and I don't want anything on the back of the phone other than that 5.5 is biggest I would go beings I have an iPhone 6 Plus now
    Yes but if they put a 5.8" screen in the same size (or slightly larger body of an iPhone 7) the device would still be much smaller than the plus model yet have a larger screen.

    Yeah it would be nice if it was edge to edge and I did pay 1000 for my 6 plus 128 gb

    Well all rumors are pointing towards that type of screen. And if apple really is starting at $999. 128gb better be the base model.

    So if the rumors about no Touch ID and going to facial recognition are true, that is going to make it interesting. I can't see it being as quick for things like apple pay that Touch Id is and could see this being a factor keeping people away from the 8 (or whatever it is called)

    Happy with my 7+. Been on it since Jan 2017. Coming from Android. I am spending enough. I like the 7+. It is solid.

    Facial recognition. I had this on most of the rooted HTC devices I had owned. Even tho it was early stages, it's still something that I do not care for having as an unlock feature

    So what would it take for me to not upgrade to the iPhone 8?

    Probably a $1000 price tag.

    I know people will pay the price because they want it. It's too bad Apple hiked up the price. It will definitely keep me from consideration. And as I said earlier my 7+ has been great. Also all the cases I have. Am good for now

    We don’t know anything for certain until Apple tells us at the keynote. There may be a price hike, but there may not be. Even if there is we don’t know how much. It could be negligible compared to the value of the features the device gives you.

    Well *if* this is true, I'm afraid I might have to skip until it's brought back next year.
    This would be the first upgrade I'd miss since 2009.
    I doubt this report is true. But it's the only thing that would keep me from upgrading.
    I use Touch ID for every instance that it's available.

    Definitely the price. The S8/S8+ manage to be under $850 and they both have edge to edge displays, rear FPS, wireless charging, IP68 rating, and decent battery life.

    I'm not upgrading cause the size and the lack of touch id. I'm 6' 8", I enjoy a larger phone.

    I'll go with a 7S Plus or whatever it's called as long as it has wireless charging and supports the current 7 Plus cases. If not, then I'll wait until next year.

    I love the design of the S8+ but hated that there are no glass screen protectors that actually fit the phone. I also hated Android os. I don't want to download extra stuff to make my phone run as smooth as butter. With that being said, I will not upgrade if the leaked pictures are true of the design of the iPhone 8. I'm not liking the design at all. And, I have no need to go from an 7+ to a 7s+. They will look identical with few upgrades not worth the additional cost.
