Which iPhone model will you be upgrading to 6s or 6s Plus from?
Tomorrow is the day when Apple is officially releasing its newest iPhone 6s and 6s Plus puppies, 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 wanted to ask you from which iPhone model will you be upgrading, if you intend to do so. Take your pick below, and give us your arguments in the comments.

Which iPhone model will you be upgrading to 6s or 6s Plus from?

An iPhone 4s or below
An iPhone 5
An iPhone 5s
An iPhone 6
An iPhone 6 Plus

Sky news in the uk, saying Upto 4000 apps have been hacked on the apple shop, I do not even think that even get close to this on google even if you add up all the hacks of all time on the Google shop, but get back to me if I am wrong http://news.sky.com/story/1557612/apple-security-breach-bigger-than-first-thought This is a top Apple pro support company and website and channel

In YOUR opinion. Facts show an Android device would be a huge upgrade. Compare the Note 5 to the iPhone 6S+ and please explain how the Note would be a downgrade. Or maybe its the typical Android hate. Here is a fact - Let's define better. Some things are better because maybe they are better for you. But there are things that are better whether you think so or not. The Note 5 and the S6 are BETTER than even the latest iPhone, because it offers better hardware, better software capabilities and all at a better price. Those are facts whether you like the device or not. Ye "that is what we call a downgrade" because you evil stupid clueless iFans hate everything Apple hates because you are so loyal to your own stupid fault. The iPhone is a huge downgrade. Just compare the hardware alone. Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6S 1140p vs 750p 5/16MP vs 1.2/8MP 3GGB RAM vs 1GB RAM dual quadcore vs dualcore Fast charge from 0 - 100% in 90 mins vs 240mins Gorilla Glass 4 vs cheap ion strengthen glass Doesn't bend in your pocket vs could bend in your pocket crashes less apps vs crashes more apps vs all Android versions combined Google offers tried and true services vs services that are half-baked and don't work very well Default applications vs forced to use Apple's apps before switching - Explained. I have a web link I choose my favorite browser and all web links open with it vs Apple who allows you to install whatever browser, but all links you click will open in Safari by default and you can't change it. Android overs innovative ideas and concepts vs Apple finally copies them 3 or 5 years later and they don't do anything more, and in many cases offers less. Out the box, Android phones do so much vs to make an iPhone do the same would require you to buy nearly $150 worth of apps and also jailbreak the device. I could go on and list 50 things my phone can do out the box that the iPhone can't out the box and only half can be done with a jailbreak. The iPhone would be the downgrade here. Yes the iPhone is better than lots of Android phones, but those cheap phones aren't priced very high and many of them still do more than a brand new latest iPhone. It's really sad that you all CHOOSE to be stupid. How about don't point a finger at what someone else likes, when the sh!t you like is actually worse.

And the Pulitzer Prize for wasting one's breath goes to.... First of all, you're in the wrong article. iPhone buyers will buy iPhones. Yes, there are a few exceptions who switch back and forth between Android and iOS, but for the most part, Android owners will stick with Android and iPhone owners will stick with iPhones. I was just discussing this with a friend who's going on her third iPhone. She doesn't need the best specs or the highest pixel density or the best 4K video (or any 4K video for that matter.) She wants something that makes calls, takes good photos and videos, browses smoothly, has a good app store, and feels comfortable. I wouldn't tell her to buy anything other than an iPhone. It's not for me (going on my third Android phone), it's what works for her.

Switching to the S6 is not really that much of an upgrade in my opinion.. Both have bad battery life and non expendable memory. Switching to Xperia however IS a worthy upgrade. You'll get better battery life, expendable memory, IP68, DNC-headphones, high-res audio etc.

Try an get some of your facts right if your gonna hate. The iPhone 6S has a 5MP front camera now and 12MP rear camera. Also they have 2GB of ram now. The aluminum has been upgraded from the iPhone 6, and bendgate was made out to be a bigger deal than it really was. You simply hate Apple so of course your gonna post crap comments about them, but at least get the facts right.

The phones bending wasn't really made into a bigger deal then it was. Out of the 9 people I know that have a iphone 6(not plus), 6 of us have bent phones. I'm actually really good with phones and mine bent. I didn't even think the 6 would bend. But...it did. Apple said that it wasn't a problem. Even though all 6 of us came in at the same time. My phones resale value is now $0

Techie: Just a few things wrong with your comparison of the iPhone 6s vs the Galaxy S6: The iPhone 6s has a 12 megapixel back camera and a 5 megapixel front camera. The iPhone 6s has 2 gigs of ram, not one. Apples services actually work quite well. Don't be like the fanboy fools here like cnour that down Android at every turn. And definitely don't say people are "choosing to be stupid" over their choice of smartphone. It's THEIR choice. Respect others choice as you would want them to respect yours. Just explain the merits of using Android as you know it through your usage.

Upgrade to android in a high end device. Or you will end up regretting (In recent times mid range devices too give a decent performance.).

Agreed. The few cases where I saw Android users migrate to iPhones, they had bought a midrange device with poor support (I'm looking at you, Xperia Play) or wanted an iPhone all along but couldn't because of carrier exclusivity. But I would agree. If you're going to buy an Android, buy a flagship that's less than 6 months old.

You can buy a 2 year old Android Flagship device and it will still be better than an iPhone on some level. For example -http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=5125&idPhone2=7242&idPhone3=6033 I did a comparison here vs the S4 and S5. The 2 Galaxy devices have slightly slower modems for connectivity but everything else is either better or equal. The S4 is smaller vs the iPhone 6S, but still has a larger screen and its full HD vs 750p. The rear camera is basically the same other than the iPhone has an updated sensor. What the comparison does show is the iPhone 6S is still a 2012 model phone based on its hardware and for what it costs it should have similar hardware to the L G4 or S6 or some other top end phone. A brand new S5 out the box is less than $400 now. Still at a year old offers some nice amenities over the iPhone 6S. Like its IP67 rated against dust/water, has a better camera on the rear, 1080p, and more. It even can give the 6S+ a good run for its money.

I would never compare an iPhone to any Android purely on specs. I wouldn't bother with benchmarks either, even though the iPhone trounces many Android flagships in SunSpider and Geekbench, because the results are too connected to "lower specs". The only specs that matter are battery life, screen size, and maybe resolution, but even that's debatable since it's all in what you're used to. And if you want the iPhone "experience", you'll even overlook those shortcomings. Focus on the tangibles: how smoothly does it operate? How good is the photo quality? You're not going to win over iPhone users with a spec bragging war. If you want an iPhone, get an iPhone.

You really think that I will read your newspapers? You are a very frustrated person. Go to a doctor and tell him that you have an iPhonephobia.

Seriously dude? Give up. No one has time to read your novels and hear you complain about the damn iPhone. The iPhone is a flagship phone that does what it does well.

Having seen the prices, I wont be getting a new one.... £66 a month for 64GB + Unlimited data. I'm currently paying £36 a month for the same thing on a contract I signed 2 years ago... how did the prices go up so much? I'm just going to end the contract, switch to £20 a month unlimited Data month by month plan and then just stick to my iPhone 5s until something compelling comes out on Android/WP.

Anyone with a 6 or 6+ its really not worth upgrading right now unless you absolutely much have the rose gold color or force touch. But the color is just a color and the attractiveness will die off. Force touch just started, it won't be in full swing for like a year.
