I mean this would be an absolute no brainer if the stupid 2nd speaker was instead the headphone jack. I just don't understand it.

I'll wait for impressions and reviews and otherwise upgrade from my 6 Plus to the 6S Plus, both 128 GB even though I would love 256.

You can double-tap it to access Siri, so there will probably be something along those lines.

Maybe punch yourself in the ear to shuffle.

You'll be waiting 2 years if the 8 is your target. the "S" would be next year, assuming a consistent rotation.

I'm also trying to decide whether it's worth moving away from my 6+. Feeling kinda meh, tbqh.

With next year being the 10th anniversary people are rumoring the iPhone 8 as a complete redesign. No "S" year.

The new glossy black is awesome.

1080p IPS is a disappointment. The inevitable amoled 1440p (8 or 7s?) will look astonishing though.

Been rumors that next year will be the 8.

The 7 feels like a 6s again. Very similar design.

No headphone jack like the rumors have been telling since early this year. It's going to piss off a lot of casual users for sure, and hopefully Apple will feel the heat and bring it back on the next iPhone.

If T-Mobile offers a way to jump to the new one I will but if not I'll sit this one out.

I'm hoping the same. Really like the 7, but can wait if the cost is too much.

Seems the least immediately impressive new numbered version of the iPhone at first glance. Seeing as my 6S+ is still awesome I'm very happy to sit this generation out when the benefits over what I have aren't there for the price. Still not happy about the headphone jack situation too.

Apple will never ever backtrack on this. Wireless audio will only be better a year from now.

Considering how fragile the lightning port already is (seriously, I used to work at RadioShack and replaced at least 15 cables every day) I have my doubts that that dongle will be durable. Not to mention the thousands of dumbass kids who will lose them at school. All to make the damn thing a couple MM thinner.

Dumb move Apple, dumb fucking move. I hate to be that fucking guy, but I'm going to be that fucking guy - Steve would have never done this.

from the verge:

Another thing I tried: the new home button, which uses a "taptic engine" to give you physical feedback when you press it — it's pressure sensitive too, so it can tell if you really mean to press it or just tap it. And it's awful. On a MacBook trackpad, you get this uncanny feeling that you're actually hitting a button. On the iPhone, the whole bottom of the phone just sort of "kicks." It's not bad haptics like you remember, with weird vibration, it's just a new kind of bad haptics. It doesn't feel like a button at all. It's a bummer.

one of my bigger post-announcement fears

The fucking balls Apple has, they just made millions of headphones absolutely useless by bundling in a dongle you can use to plug your old headphones into.

Why don't they think of the lightning pods?

I think we'll have heard the worst of it by the time it actually comes out to be honest. Give it a few days for the bloggers to publish the numerous articles they've already written about how terrible it is.

For the truly casual buyers--the people whose contracts have now expired and will go into the store knowing next to nothing about the device--they'll just use the headphones that come in the box like always.

"Oh, it goes in this hole instead? Weird." Then they'll start playing with the new camera tricks or talk about how iMessage looks like Snapchat now or any other of the features that "normal people" actually care about.

Think I'm going with the matte black version. I was tempted to go with the white one but I like the darker metal look on this version. I'd probably just get whatever 128gb they have in stock though minus the rose gold. I'm pumped to try out that dual camera.

Presumably the point is to remove the mechanical, moving button as a point of failure.

Depends on your carrier. AT&T Doesn't do contracts at all and I think Verizon only does the for legacy customers.

The Verge have a little hands on video and damn, that Jet Black sure is a finger print magnet.
I would also wonder how durable the finish is because screw shiny black surfaces which scratch easy.

I think sales would have to be absolutely disastrous for them to backtrack. I can't recall the last time Apple ever really flip-flopped on removing an older technology and then putting it back into a product.

How does the pricing for the upgrade program work in the US? trying to guess if it would be affordable in the UK.

Pricing is a joke, but that's probably down to the stupid exchange rate. The supposedly cheaper 'old' 6S is the same price it was last year when new, and the 7 is 100 more expensive
