    I have always been ready for September and new products from Apple. As far as selling my existing device, I will probably give to my brother and buy the newest model when the preorders become available. Just the way I am.

    No way I am paying full price for a iPhone again or on a contract, not worth it.

    This year I have bought:
    X64gb 3 days old $10000 retail $1579
    8 plus 64gb 2 weeks old $800 retail $1429
    8 256gb 2 weeks old $600 retail $1329
    8 64gb with AC+ 2 weeks old $750 retail $1278

    Unless the new device is that much better I will stick with my X for now.

    Just upgraded to an 8 plus as my 6 plus wasn’t fairing to well anymore and hope to have it 4 years at least. Wanted all the internals of the x basically but no Face ID so I won’t be upgrading for a long time

    Can't wait... Well I guess I could...
    I have the 8plus so I'd probably be going for the X upgrade device ...

    I am always ready for the new iPhone but for the first time ever I may not be selling my X .... at least not in August. I may hold on to it or keep it. Haven’t decided yet.

    I normally sell my devices but I think this year I'll just trade my X in. I don't want to go through the hassle of trying to sell.

    Devices are getting too expensive to upgrade every year in my opinion.

    I’ll be keeping my X.
    I’ll also start saving up and see what Apple announce on September.

    If I sell, it’s always after purchase of the new model. I’m a one phone kinda guy so I could never sell before.

    I am upgrading my wifes 6S Plus to an 8Plus in the next week. I will downgrade from my X 256GB SIM Free to her old 6S Plus (keeping it as a spare phone) and will likely get the new X Plus variant. Tough question is do I get the Verizon model and activate on my work SIM then put the AT&T SIM in gto avoid locking to AT&T or do i wait for a SIM Free to ship 2 months later. Either way my 256GB X Silver will be going up soon.

    Actually ended up returning the 8 plus. Just wasn't $800 better than my 6 plus to me. 🤷*♂️ probably will use this till it just dies then see what's available then. Phones are getting so expensive I want to truly get all I can get out of it I guess.

    I usually sell every year as well but I am also getting tired of dealing with the hassle of it every year. I’ve got too much going on these days. Not sure what I’m gonna do but I guess I need to decide soon.

    Just got on board with the X in July. So I will be on the sidelines this September. Frankly I like getting on the tail end of Apple’s cycle. Plenty of time for any issues to be resolved. Plus with IOS 12 being released. My old X will feel like a new one. Minus the size? Can’t carry a micro tablet in my pocket anyways. Enjoy Apple Day. Anybody know of the exact release date?

    Rumors are announced around 14th released 19th September. Hope you got a good deal on the X?

    I knocked back a sealed new X256gb on the weekend for $1150, they are $1829AUD here, was going to flip it but they are going for under $1500 on ebay, take out fees etc wasn't worth it, where i usually sell too are only offering $1160.
    Got a 7 plus to try great phone but just too big for me, flipped it.

    Sitting on my 8 i think.

    Apple doesn't usually release on a Wednesday, so I think the accepted rumor is Friday, Sept 21 (with pre-order the prior Friday, Sept 14), at least for two of the three rumored new phones.

    Besides the new processor and updated camera I don't know if it is worth the price of the upgrade. This is the first year I have kept my phone's the longest just can't keep putting out large amounts of cash for the latest and greatest devices.

    I am hearing you, i buy and sell a few so make up my losses a bit. I sold my 8 when X released, just sold my X a few weeks ago and bought another 8. The expirement cost me $350 with the bonus of AC+ on my new 8 so not too bad, then if i had of just kept the original 8

    I already locked in my resell price with a 30 day window, given the prices will start dropping quickly and if the new XS 5.8" does have a lower price point than last years it will impact the X resale value. I just checked and it has dropped $110 from just a few days ago. Fortunately I have 30 days.

    I recently did a trade in via Apple’s recycling program for my old 7 plus that had been collecting dust and got $290.00/US in Apple Store credit for it. Probably not the best price for it, I know... but better than nothing (imo).
