    That's what's eating at me.......lol. If a 512GB iPhone ever happens, I'm on it immediately.
    Apple likes to pioneer certain features or upgrades on one device, and eventually move them to other devices. Think about the 9.7 iPad Pro last year, the first iOS device with 256GB. Then, later that year, the iPhone adopted 256GB of storage for the first time. Fast forward to this year, and all new iPad Pro models have up to 512GB for the first time. Hopefully Apple follows that trend for this year too.

    That’s what I’m hoping for. Especially since I plan to do more mobile photography and video.

    Which new rumored features of the iPhone Edition would make you want to pay more for, rather than the iPhone 7s Plus?
    Hopefully it will have some upgrades that we have already seen in other devices, like Pro Motion, a bigger battery, a 10 nanometer A11 Fusion processor that is faster than the A10X Fusion and have a beefy graphics processor like the 2017 iPad Pro, and Bluetooth 5. All the other pie-in-the-sky things that are going around would be nice, but just bringing technology that already exists on other Apple devices (minus Bluetooth 5) would be all I need to upgrade.

    If by 8 you mean the special model then propably not. I bet its gonna be stupidly expensive.
    The new iPad Pro models bring some nice things to the table without being that much more expensive in overall iPad history. But yeah if it's expensive, I bet people wouldn't buy it outright as much and instead subsidize it through their carrier.

    How do you know?
    There's no real systemfile in ios11, I can tap my status bar and have it screenshot for me, my volume down button can load apps/whatever I want it to do. I have literal control over my device. I have tweaks that let me set default apps, I have tweaks that display the actual battery %, tweaks that let me be more productive while giving me customization. Ios 11/iPhone 8 will not have that.  will not allow any of that anytime soon.

    Keep in mind that iOS 11 vs. Jailbraking is all software based. So whichever one you run on your iPhone, they will both present great features. But the iPhone 8 is brand new hardware. Wouldn't you want to utilize an A11 to its full potential and see what it really can do? I'm not saying you should jailbreak and overclock a processor, but if I were to do so, I would want to do it with a smaller, stronger, and more efficient processor that generates less heat. The A11 is said to be only 10 nanometers, not 16 like in the 7 Plus. So imagine what you could do with what will most likely be the fastest mobile processor in the world. And that's just the processor!

    Oh yeah, you said you already have a jail broken 7 Plus. Well that should be good for you a long time then since they tend to last a long time

    The 7 Plus is my current poison of choice. With over 2500 photos and videos in my library, nearly 9 gigs of downloaded music, 8 gigs of podcasts, and almost 150 third party apps, I still have tons of space on my 128 GB model. So that should suit you well for an iPhone. I'm having trouble though selling my previous 12.9 iPad Pro. What do you use to sell your devices?

    That's what I grabbed. The 256GB models are sold out and I didn't want to settle for a little screen any longer... lol. It depends, I'll trade in a device sometimes (in this case my Galaxy S7 edge) when upgrading. Other times I'll sell on eBay, or sell to macofalltrades or Gazelle. Every now and then I direct sell if someone I know happens to be looking for the device I'm selling. I was close to buying the 12.9 iPad Pro myself, but instead I opted for the 9.7.

    I am not planning on getting the 8. My 7 plus fills all my needs and I don't think there will be any new features that are worth spending the money on for me. The return on investment keeps getting smaller every year. And with Apple sending the newest iOS updates to what I already have I'm sure i will still have most of the new features. I'm more interested in the note 8.

    What's the rumors on the Note 8? I haven't kept up on it since there's been more fanfare with the next iPhone. A lot of the rumored features for the next iPhone is just stuff that Samsung has already tried, so I'm getting bored with iPhone 8 predictions and rumors already. Are the Note 8 rumors different from the next iPhone?

    Of course I, as well as many others on the forums, will be getting the next iPhone. But I’d like to play devil’s advocate and see who is thinking about skipping it this year and why. (I know it won’t be called iPhone 8, but for simplicity’s sake I’m going with that name for now)
    My original plan was to get it but I was forced to use my upgrade about 2 weeks ago... my 7 plus will last me for a while.

    Who was your carrier? Did you use an upgrade plan with that so you can upgrade faster? I know Sprint just redid their lease plans

    Oh, I think they still have the regular 30 month payment plan, then the 24 and 12 month upgrades with trade in. I think if you pay up a certain amount, you can upgrade early. Just in case the next gen. iPhone is what you're looking for

    Price and the continued dropping of rumored "features" would keep me away. Still going to hold out for an updated SE.

    If they drop Touch ID and only go facial recognition, then I'm probably going with the 7s. For me, facial recognition is just a gimmick, not to make things easier but just to make people think they're "hip." No Touch ID would be detrimental, and I hope Apple realizes that and tries to do something about it. Of course, we don't know how Apple will implement it, so I'll just have to wait and see.

    I would say no but then again my iPhone hasn't been more than six feet from me the entire day...
