    New phone time...

    I have been pondering which phone, I have iPhone 5 so any upgrade is going to be wonderful....but is there enough difference between 6s and 7 for me to go for 7 at an extra 100. 32gb 6s 499 32gb. 7 599. I am tempted to take the cut price 6s but then I think I am going to hang on to this phone for as long as possible. The 5 is last on the list for iOS 10 and nearly 4 years of service. Is there a chance there will be a further cut in price on 6s for Black Friday. I really don't need the latest and greatest but my Apple Watch needs this upgrade and probably a few more. Any advice would be really appreciated, the most cost effective way forward.....I am driving myself bonkers.....

    If you are going to keep the phone for a fair time then my advice would be to go for newest model you can afford, Its hard to say if there will be any price further price cuts though.
    Bear in mind too that your 5 is still worth selling, It could towards your new one.

    Yes I am leaning that way Ivy...but feeling guilty about spending that amount on a phone. I think I am looking for justification. Hubby says go for the 7 but everything I have looked at says it's not much better than 6s and it may get price cut for Black Friday and it's 32gb from apple....stressing now....lol

    I go through the guilt thing as well and my hubby always says just get what you want.....Look at it this way, you made your 5 last you nearly 4 years so its not exactly extravagant, The 7 will last you longer as regards updates too.

    I got an email from Curry's and KRCS about ordering the 7, At Apple it seems to depend on storage and colour, looks like 2-3wks now on most so it seems to be slipping back, Maybe more people are ordering it as they can't get the plus.

    Yes have a good think, I'm still really annoyed that pre-orders were delayed here and by the time they opened here all the first dates had been snapped up, Got weeks to wait now :(
