    So now I'm thinking of doing it. Use my iPhone upgrade program to get a 64GB XS. Same price per month and get the new goodies. I still have 24GB free so I'm not in danger of running out but really would have liked 256

    As with a lot of folks, I am very happy with my current X and I won’t be up all night waiting for the preorders to open.

    I might be inclined to get a XR model in a cool color down the road.

    So a few weeks ago I said this:

    I don’t think I will be upgrading.

    I’ve got two major trips across the pond next year, one will be a month in Spain. I’ll be renting a house for the month.

    So I’m going to be very frugal this year into next.
    Then Apple FINALLY gave me 512GB.

    Frugality just suffered a major setback.

    Had my X for three months now and the specs and features of the XS haven’t made me regret not waiting for it.

    A new chip and a camera sensor isn’t very groundbreaking.

    hopefully keep this until this time next year

    Definitely not upgrading as my X works great and I haven't had it that long really (since late March). However, I will be buying the Series 4 watch.

    Nothing changed my mind. Keeping the X. Series 4 is tempting, but I'm still saying no to that for now.

    I’m probably not upgrading from the X to the Xs Max.

    Actually now I'm debating paying the $5 extra a month on iUP and getting a 64GB Max. However, I'm not going to pre-order anything. I'm going to wait for them to hit the stores first and see the Max in person. Technically since the X came out at the end of October I have to pay $50 before I can even pre-order anyway to finish off the 12 payments, and then the pre-order payment + tax will still be there on top. Since I want a Watch more, I'm waiting.

    I've had my X (256GB) for 5 months and I'm happy with it. The Max is just too big for me and doesn't suit my needs. My X will fulfill my satisfaction for another year or 2.

    I am perfectly happy with my iPhone X. I’ll skip the S version.

    I am thinking about the series 4 only due to somewhat of a design change. Not upgrading the phone because the design didn't change. Now if the phone was a new design I'd probably upgrade.

    I skipped the iPhone XS but I pre-ordered the Apple Watch S4 instead. I don’t see any practical reason why I need to upgrade my iPhone X.

    I also checked the Apple store when I woke up for curiosity and the XS and XS Max are still available for pick up at multiple locations in my area. You can tell not too many people upgraded this year. It’s probably the price and the minimal benefits of upgrading from iPhone X to XS.

    I ended up not upgrading -- though the dual SIM capability really tempted me. So, at least for now, I'm not upgrading as I've been very happy with my X.

    And it looks like the XS Max is starting to sell out. For shipping it is telling me Sept 28 to Oct 5 now, and only 1 version can I pick up a store close to me. There are still a handful of models left that can be gotten in stores near me on release day, though I'd need to travel over 200 miles to get them on the 21st.

    I'm not upgrading my iPhone X. Instead a prefer to upgrade my Watch Series 3, since I really liked the new Series 4.

    I say it every year, I won’t upgrade, but I’m thinking that I may stick it out this year. I’m hoping iOS 12 will refresh the X for me. I usually do Beta but withheld to obtain the fresh phone feeling when it’s released.
    Are you keeping the X or getting an Xs Max?

    I have iPhone 7 plus (256gb, unlocked) in really great shape still, should I upgrade? Im a little worried that iOS 12 will slow my phone down. Any advise?

    iOS 12 will absolutely not slow down your 7 plus. It made my 1 year old 5th gen iPad which uses the older iPhone 6s series chip feel at least like a 7. I've been running it on that and my iPhone X since the first public beta a few months ago. I most definitely recommend the upgrade.

    I spoke too soon. The big screen got to me, as well as it having band 71 and dual SIM capability. I'm not thrilled about going back to the large body, like I got used to on the X. On the flip side, I'm thrilled about having all that screen real estate.

    I recently switched from dark sky to carrot weather. Apparently it knows what day today is. I'm amused.

    CARROT⁵ for the win. I used Dark Sky before as well and CARROT⁵ just works better (get data from Dark Sky) and has more features. The CARROT⁵ Apple Watch complications are more customizable and update timely. Dark Sky never seemed to update on its own or at any regular interval.
