Is it best to wait until September until the 7 arrives to buy a 6s, don't pay attention to new releases but need to replace my 5.

Saw a deal for £33 on EE with £60 down - ideally don't want to throw money at it, and wondered if the prices will drop after a new release?

New phone is imminent, doesn't seem to be any exciting developments in rumours, thinking of maybe moving to the dark side and giving the Samsungs new note7 a go.

Iphone 7

Stereo speakers
New camera has optical image stabilisation - 6 element lens with f/1.8 aperture. 60% faster than previous iPhones.

The iPhone 7 has a single lens camera; the 7 Plus has a dual lens camera (wide angle and telephoto)

iPhone 7 Plus: New 'portrait' effect on the camera to add depth of field to photos
Water and dust resistant

Longer battery life: Apple says the 7's battery will last two hours longer than the 6, and the 7 Plus battery lasts one hour more than the 6 Plus.

Comes in jet black, black, gold, silver, rose gold

Headphones will connect via the lightning port. A free set comes with with the phone, plus an adaptor for traditional 3.5mm jack headphones

And AirPods - wireless headphones (with a microphone) that have infrared sensors that detect when they're in your ear and only play then.

W1 chip connects the AirPods to your other Apple devices.

The batteries last for 5 hours and the Airpods come with a charging case that holds 24 hours of charge.

A10 Fusion chip with a 64-bit four core CPU

Storage: 32GB, 128GB, 256GB

Cost: $649 for the 7, $769 for the 7 Plus

Means that if your going to get apple care plus, might as well just get in on the apple upgrade program, works out same price, no big upfront outlay and you get the bonus of the upgrade for no extra charge next year.

Yeah was looking at that, pretty good but you got to go into store to do that which probably means joining a big ass line. If you want it on launch anyway.

Just spoke to the store and they said you can pre order, select store pick up and arrange the upgrade plan when you collect the phone. Upgrade plan works for me as you get a couple of screen replacements in the 3 2 years for £25 and I'm clumsy with my phone.

No real upgrade from the 6 really, plus no headphone port is a stupid idea, can't charge your phone and use the headphones to talk now!
