    I have 14.5k RN on my phone I need to clean house. My pc has 9tb of storage and I just keep hd "videos" on it
    9TB? Well dang, even 512GB now sounds ridiculously insignificant. One day, when we can natively plug external hard drives into our Apple devices...

    At this point I would say it is unlikely that I'll get the 8. My 7 Plus is a very solid phone and will certainly be good a year from now. I'll let Apple mess round and figure out what they are doing and then see what happens next year. In the meantime I have my 7 Plus and my S8 Plus and I'm good with either of those.

    Now that I caved and picked up a 7 plus, I can say that I WON'T be getting the iPhone 8...................... when it first arrives, that is.

    Which is why I have an iPhone 7 as my backup, which can be sold to offset some of the cost...

    Based on the rumors, you might have to sell a MacBook, not an iPhone, to offset the cost LOL

    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)

    7+ does all I need in a phone. No reason to buy an 8 unless it was given to me.

    I'll be getting it as long as the fingerprint reader is on the screen. My phone spends too much time in a dock on my desk or in my car for me to not have that. If the reader is on the back, I'll get one of the other models and hope for the next year.

    No, I'm not getting the IPhone 8 for 2 reasons 1) No Headphone Jacks 2) Price is too high (I'm not paying 1,000 for an IPhone that is too expensive)

    I'm on the 6s and have got myself in a the routine of upgrading every 2 years, not cause I need too but as you can guess being on here I'm interested in new technology! All the time I have my luxury money and have saved up for it I will upgrade, plus all my old phones slowly filter down to other family members so have them on my case 😉😉😉😂

    I want/expect: OLED, reduced bezels, wireless charging, front Touch ID (embedded or not), and better water resistance. I won't buy unless the new phone has most if not all of those features.

    I'm sure that I'll buy one. I bought a 6 plus, 6s Plus and 7 plus. I'd be kidding myself if I said I wasn't getting one. And yes, it will be the most expensive one they make!

    Well, I already held out for the iPhone7 and stuck to my 6plus. I initially was planning on upgrading this year. Actually, the only reason why I don't will be when Apple overprices the 8. Any starting price over the 1000 euro will be overpricing in my book.

    Well than let's hope it's under $1000, because that sounds ridiculous to charge more for it just because you can't make enough of them at launch. Sure I would understand if there were $1000 worth of technology in it, but the reports are that they'll charge that for no reason besides trying to deter people from buying it since they can't make enough. That sounds insane and pretty fake to me, yet people are running with this story and sticking to it. I don't see how deterring people from your greatest product will make them more money. Something just seems wrong with this thinking and I'm not buying it (no pun intended).

    I'm not saying I believe or don't believe the rumors but pricing something in limited quantities at a higher price is simple economics. Supply and demand. That's far from a new concept.

    Again, I don't think prices will be as high as some of the rumors have indicated, but depending on the number of this "level" of phones Apple expects to make, it is possible.

    I don't think I'll get any choice. By 12:01 am PDT they will be on backorder; I will not have even gotten into the que yet; and when I do I'll learn that folks on the Apple upgrade plan won't be getting theirs until February 2018...

    I won't be buying the 8 at least not this year. I will however upgrade to the 7s Plus. The reasons for waiting are price and technology. I will wait for the price to come down in the next cycle and by which time the technology will be more stable. I'm gonna sit back and let the early adopters work out all the bugs in the new tech of the iPhone 8.

    I like your strategy. I feel the same way.

    The "iPhone 8" is a limited anniversary edition. There's no guarantee it will continue as a permanent iPhone in Apple's iPhone line up next year. They haven't made that clear.
