These two old iPhones are still the most popular, beckoning the 2018 upgrade tsunami

iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X account for less than 30% of the Apple handsets in use, which means that the whopping 70% of iPhone users are rocking a model that is getting very old in the tooth. Given that there are more than a billion iPhones in circulation, that's a huge pool of potential customers for the new iPhone XR, XS and XS Max that will be announced in a few short hours.The
Analysts are predicting the "mother of all iPhone upgrade waves" to take on the mobile industry this holiday season, and we can only grab some popcorn following the seismic shifts in market share that will follow.

Not surprised. I chose to get a 7 (non plus model) earlier this year and I have no regrets. While it lost the headphone jack, it did gain OIS and stereo speakers over the 6s (non plus model). It's been pretty solid for me. I'm not interested in upgrading probably but we will see. The changes from the 7 to the 8 isn't as noticeable to me. TrueTone is nice but not nice enough to justify a upgrade for me. I'm also indifferent about wireless charging.

I have a 6s and it literally stopped supporting peak performance a few mins ago. First shutdown. I'll replace the battery and upgrade next summer.

Yeah, Im also upgrading. My last iphone was the iphone 6. The 7 felt like my 6 so i skipped it. Then wanting to get the 8 but was also disappointed, so I went with the LG V30. Found a cheap 1 year deal and I'm actually really happy with it (only issue is the front camera that sucks) But I want to get back to Apple because I dont like Google lol. So Apple here I come......unless its damn expensive lol.
