    Well it's the big reveal tomorrow. Will be interesting to see what features they've got onboard this time to catch rivals.

    Going straight to the 8, no "S" model. Expect exxy prices.

    So the iphone 8 and 8+ will look nearly exactly the same as the iphone 7, with the camera module turned 90 degrees.

    The iphone X looks interesting, the question is how much? haha

    It'll be interesting to see what pops up. I'm even debating whether I do my traditional "one year old" model shuffle. I'm not convinced I want an IP7, unless the battery life is significantly better than the 6s...

    I’m currently rocking a 6+ with a cracked screen, broken rear camera, and plenty of software glitches.

    So here’s hoping I can get a new phone at a not-outrageous price!

    Good luck with that. They will be in line with the competition you would expect. What's your version of a non outrageous price?

    Not $1500 plus for the top model.

    Not likely. The only thing you could hope for is a drop in price of 7's left in stock.

    Some nice new features but that price...wow.

    I think I'll be hanging onto my IP7 and skipping the 8.

    Won't be getting iPhone 8+ and the iPhone X seems such a letdown with the no home button (replaced with gestures...) and no touch ID (replace with Face ID). I'm not convinced with the Face ID at all and no physical or on screen buttons makes me wonder about usability.

    14 hours to go. I hope Apple still has some surprises up it's sleeves.

    There's is seriously little difference between the 6S and 7. All you get is water resistance and lose the headphone jack. My wife has the 7+ and I have 6S+, and apart from dual camera, everything feels the same.

    Mmm phone upgrade time. Based on that article though I'm a bit unsure on how much i want to spend for something that I literally use for calls, sms and a few banking apps. The big screen on my current 64g 6s+ is nice though. I must be in the minority that i've also been pretty interested in trying out those wireless headphones.

    lol, yes. People talk about Apple not being innovative and I questioned someone about this in a previous thread.....how much more innovative can they possibly be with phones? Most things are basically already done, it's a mobile office, gaming device, comms, internet, advanced features such as fingerprint id and facial recognition, etc etc. All they can really do is tweak around the edges and add small things as they go.

    I guess the complaint is that it's a minor bump in specs (probably mostly software) and they think it's worthy of an event and a price hike etc etc.
