I’m a slave to Apple. I admit it. When a new iPhone comes out, I want it. I currently have a gold iPhone 5s, and it works beautifully. There’s no reason for me to get a new phone. No. reason. Whatsoever. And yet, I find myself looking for reasons to justify it.
I’m pretty sure that I could trade in my phone, which means that it would cost very little, if anything, to upgrade, but do I really need to carry around a mini tablet just because it’s the latest thing? (Yes. No. Ugh…but I want it! But do I really?)
The marketing team at Apple is brilliant because they know that people like me crave instant gratification. They know that we’ll cave because we have to have the latest and greatest in technology, but this time, I wonder if it’s really worth the upgrade.
It seems as though all the newest iPhone has to offer is upgrades that are already available on Android devices. I had a Samsung Galaxy 4 at one point, and it was so big that it was overwhelming to use. I couldn’t text with one hand because my thumb couldn’t reach the other side of the screen. That was the thing I disliked most about my Galaxy, except that it wasn’t an iPhone.
I own a Macbook, an iPad, Apple TV and an iPhone. If there’s an Apple version, I usually prefer it. I like that everything works together seamlessly, and the folks at Apple count on it.
I’m not planning to upgrade right now, and that doesn’t mean that I’m going to stop wishing for the new iPhone 6. The 6 Plus is too much. It’s ridiculous, but the 6? Yeah…I want that.
Are there any other Apple junkies here? Have you already upgraded to the new iPhone? If so, which one? If not, do you plan to?
