Aesthetically it is probably the same as the 6 but everything else is an upgrade surely.

I still have a naked black 5 in perfect working order purchased from Apple 3 years ago. The thing stood the test of time. Ever since the 6 im reluctant to buy just because I don't want a big slab to carry around.

If you look at the evolution from the original iphone to the 6 every generation has looked totally different. Not sure a slightly faster processor and slightly better camera can be accuratley described as a new generation of the phone, its more of an interim upgrade like the 6S.

Got to be the loss of Steve Jobs to some extent.

Give it a few weeks after release, there will be 3rd party cables from Belkin/Amazon etc which will give you that option

Still using a 5S, waiting for the rush to go then will get a 7+. Battery is shot in the 5S.

Looking forward to the apple homekit stuff to come, thats the big game changer.

Hardly a game changer when dozens of other companies have been doing the same thing for years already.

I've just sold mine to Mazuma. Got £245 for it (mine's not in very good condition) and it's way less hassle than eBay where you might get £40-50 more.

Love that they mention their process as if it matters Laughing out loud

Your phone is scratched to fuck, mate. Haven't you only had it 2 hours?
Yeah but it's made through a 9-step anodisation process, so
But it's fucked
NINE STEPS

Scratching your phone is no different to wearing your APC's for a year and not washing them. Its a phone, get over it.

If you got the 6s doesn't seem worth the hassle getting the 7
