    Anyone here ordering a new phone tonight? I'll be ordering one but I'm on the fence about 6s vs 6s Plus. I primarily use my iPad or TV or video and movies. I even do most of my web surfing via the iPad like I am now. So I wouldn't be watching a lot of movie other than occasional YouTube videos on the phone

    In case Royal reads this, what does Jimmy Poon think? Is the piPhone 6s worth a buy?

    I got the 6 last year and will be waiting for the 7 before I get another phone.

    The Canadian price adjusted to the new slumping dollar is CRAZY. Last September on a 2 year contract I paid $384.99 for the 64 GB Iphone 6. One year later, the 6S price for the 64GB is $569.99. Thats like a 150% increase. Add that to the $250 early upgrade fee I'd be charged, I'll wait for the 7.

    I have the original 5 so it's been 3 years as I skipped the 6 since I bought an iPad last year instead and while my iPhone 5 was under warranty they replaced the battery so I figured it'd have some legs.

    I have a 6plus and haven't regretted it. IMHO, the bigger form factor, plus the optical image stabilization is great. I don't have big hands, but have very few issues with the 5.5 inch phone. It's great for Twitter and apps, plus it makes a pretty good bedside TV for Netflix and Amazon video.

    Three words... Verizon unlimited data...

    I want to upgrade, but I can't get myself to pay full price for it since I'll lose my unlimited data with the upgrade. All my other lines have been upgraded, so is anyone here Verizon savvy and can recommend a loophole?

    Jimmy Kimmel was funny the other night. He sent a reporter on the street so people could look at the new iPhone 6. People loved how it fit in the palm of their hand and they said they would purchase one. The catch was, it was the original iPhone 1 - Ha Ha!

    I got the 6+ last year and love it. I was a long time Android (Galaxy) user and happy I made the switch

    You can activate an old phone on the unlimited number. Then upgrade one of the other numbers, then switch the new phone to the unlimited line.

    I ordered a 6s this morning to replace my 6 at work. I probably won't upgrade my personal iPhone 6 as I'd have to pay the full retail price.

    They are catching onto it...

    Ive been looking on swappa to see prices of the Iphone 6+ just drop already... It may be worth saving 400 bucks and buying one for 500 from someone there...

    Im debating on it.. i have a 5s, but I'd like to have a larger phone, etc etc....

    Won't the new pay per month upgrade plan can't you keep your plan since it's an unlocked phone?

    So I woke up at 1:45a local time and ordered one with no problem other than forgetting my apple password.

    I gave my wife the option. She has the 5s and she decided to wait until next year to get the 7. I got the 6 last year and have loved it, not worth upgrading from a 6 but maybe from an earlier version.

    I have a Mac and iPads so I personally do not have a need for the 6+/6s+.

    I will be purchasing the new Apple TV. That looks like a significant upgrade over the previous model.

    I had the 6 and upgraded to the 6+ several months ago and REALLY appreciate the larger screen. I've historically upgraded at every release, but think I'll pass this time till the 7.

    Probably a smart move. I am looking at the 6Plus, on swappa and alot of good deals to be had. People want the latest and greatest and will take a small hit on the 6

    Extremely easy loophole. Use the new Apple Lease program. $32-$38 per month, includes AppleCare + and you can get a new phone each year. Just cut the wireless company out.
