Poll results: Which iPhone model will you be upgrading to 6s or 6s Plus from?
Apple is officially releasing its newest iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets today, complete with their unique 3D Touch pressure-sensitive displays, upgraded 12 MP cameras with RGBW sensors, and blazing 14nm A9 chipsets.

With the above-mentioned 3D Touch, a camera now in the double megapixels digits with 4K video recording option, a new rose gold color, dynamic wallpapers, record LTE bands count, and other major novelties compared to the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s has more than ten major mid-cycle upgrades, making this "s" version the most worthy to get for owners of its predecessor than ever before.

This might have been the whole point for Apple to entice you to jump the gun, and this unnaturally high new feature count might mean it won't be only iPhone 5s owners flocking in droves to the iPhone 6s, but there are quite a few iPhone 6 owners in the wings, too, who might already be eyeing an upgrade. That is why we asked you yesterday from which iPhone model will you be upgrading, if you intend to do so. 

It turns out that indeed close to half of our respondents will be upgrading from the current iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, skipping a cycle, while only 22% will be waiting on their two-year iPhone 5s contract. With carrier subsidies disappearing, this annual upgrade cycle might become a veritable bonanza for Apple, more so with the new iPhone Upgrade Program straight from the manufacturer.

Wow, it's surprising how many older iPhone users are here, I have 4S but I won't be upgrading this year. Until Apple announces 4 inch 6c

A 4-inch 6C? Sorry to say, but that won't happen.

It would be an iPhone 5. Still working like a beast.

Have you seen battery life drop off a cliff? The 5 had pretty weak battery life to begin with, and lately ours has been crappy enough to force an upgrade.

I'm not a heavy user of 3G data and Low Power Mode on iOS 9 helps me get 2 more additional hours. I also experienced better performance than on iOS 8. No, I don't have a crappy battery life or performance.

I'm considering grabbing iP5 because my friend could give it to me for a 4 pack of Grolsch :d If not crappy aluminium on it you could tell it's a 2015 mid range phone based on performance

Yes, it pretty much equates to a mid ranged phone despite the specs. I recommend you take it and update it to iOS 9 ASAP. It is very good, great performance. Only downsides is battery(if not good enough for you) and prone to overheating when on mobile data.

Overheating on mobile data? What would cause that?

Why you keep showing up everyday? Doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results, is a definition of crazy.
