No issues with my wife's 7 so far, although her first comment was "looks and runs the same as my 6s, what's the big deal?" Good thing it was mostly free.

My 7+ arrives today. Not nearly as excited as I was before, but I'm looking forward to taking better pictures than on my 6+.

No hissing on mine, but can confirm the headphone remote is sketchy with the adapter. Hopefully Apple's promised fix comes soon, it's really annoying. Would also like to see their in-ear headset model in a Lightning version.

If you feel brave use one of those sites that can decode your serial number to get the week of manufacturer. It seems week 37 units had the noise issues. If you have a week 38 or later I may put an order in for one and wait forever.

So far my only gripe has to do with 3D touch. Getting the OS to recognize that I want to move icons around is a PITA. Coming from the 6+ it will take some time to get used to this. Other than that, it's a solid phone with a better camera than my 6+. The 2x optical zoom lens is nice as well.

The value of upgrading from a 6s to the 7 is questionable. My wife's 7 is barely distinguishable from her 6s. Glad it was free with trade-in.

Have you adjusted the 3D touch force required in the settings?

Give it a shot, it helped me a lot.

http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/...one-6s-6s-plus

And given what I've heard of the next processors, as well as larger changes to the iPhone in general, I am liking sitting this entire upgrade cycle out.

Now, if the Pixel ends up being WAY better than advertised, I'd consider it. Just not compelling right now, on either side.

Got my plus replacement. None of the issues I had with the prior. Running the beta the portrait is nice in very good lighting outside of that it's like potato cam fest. Very fast phone too bad it's wasted on such a simple os. Looking forward to next year when apple does something about bezels and size. I don't use the plus phones much because the in hand feel is just bad compared to the competition. I like everything about the plus except it's overall size, and good yet still subpar screen. I think the next iphone with amoled and hopefully a much needed design overhaul will a much better phone.

SO moved from her old 5 to the 7, was relatively painless and she's super stoked about several features. Helped that there was a nice upgrade discount for Verizon users on the 5 (instead of just the 6 and 6s models).

Made me immediately hate iTunes again though, as we had to use that to backup a few things for her... and it STILL ****ed up playlists and most of her music.

I remember when people used to say Apple made decent software

But she's super happy with the speed and sensors and all that. Home button definitely feels weird after using a clicky button. We tweaked the settings for her and all was good

Got the 128GB black model (matte, she loved the shiny model but hated the finger print and scratch magnet that the the floor model was).

Yea it's a constant wait for the next. Apple doesn't seem to do anything without pressure from competitors. Most of the keynote was bs being throw all over. I really hate their reasoning for the headphone port as none of them are valid. In terms of a business strategy it's a good one. I think apple does have pressure to deliver next year. Seeing as lots of demand was driven by carrier promos first couple of weeks be interesting to see real demand soon.

So I guess I'll get the iPhone 7 plus 256 GB

The accessories are confusing as hell.

I'll get the 29W USB-C power adapter and USB-C Charge cable for fast charging
http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MJ...-power-adapter
http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MK...ning-cable-1-m

I'll get the above USB-C to lighting cable which supports 5 Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 1

I WILL NOT get the 2 meter cable because it's for fast charge but USB 2 only.
http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MJ...arge-cable-2-m

USB-C to Lightning junk is covered here:
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204360

Is anyone else running that cable and/or power adapter?

Is it really worth it to spend 75 bucks on the cable and that 29w adapter? I use a lightning cable with a 10watt apple adapter and it charges pretty quickly IMO. Ive never timed it though but it is significantly faster than the small USB charger that comes with the phone.

I have the older version of this one: http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MD...-power-adapter

There have been strong rumors on the AMOLED side, and possibly wireless charging.

I am curious to see if that happens as I am planning on completely skipping this upgrade cycle.

I strongly prefer Android (stock) as an OS, but nothing compelling on the hardware side making me consider an upgrade. Even my SO's phone doesn't feel much different, and I prefer my home button to hers.

A more interesting rumor I heard was the possible switch to USB-C. That would be massive (and cause quite an uproar), but would be amazing for the industry overall and general compatibility.

I doubt they would switch to USB-C on their devices because they want to control their devices to the fullest.

They will never swap over. Lighting = money. Mifi certifications is the driving factor for getting rid of the headphone port.

Just buy any 2amp charger, why bother with the apple cables and chargers. Overpriced and crap.

Given the cost of the 256 GB iPhone 7 plus with Apple Care plus $75 is like loose change in the sofa. Do I need the charger? Probably not in most cases but there have been some times I wanted a super fast charge.

I for sure want the 5Gb USB 3.1 connection. Since it's also a 29W charging cable I figured why not get it all. Downloading a lot of videos and pictures is too slow with USB 2. I will only shoot in DNG from now on and tweak in Lightroom.

They have USB-C on their notebooks, so it's not unheard of.

It is a rumor, and even if they went that route, there is nothing preventing them from adding an auth id chip and minting licensing agreements as they tend to do.

What third party cables will run the iPhone 7 Plus USB connection at 5Gb/s?
How many times are you going to be transferring files to a PC though? My iPhone hasnt been plugged into my PC since the iPhone 5 came out. All backups are done through iCloud.

If you need music youre probably only going to plug in a couple of times to transfer files maybe not even more than once cause I doubt youre going to fill up a 256gb iPhone with music... its definitely not worth the price IMO. Just because you bought an iPhone for a crap tons of money doesnt justify spending another 75 on it.

Sazar apple has USB-C on the macbook because they wanted to slim it down and that port is a do all port. I dont think lightning can do everything that USB-C can at the moment(not sure technically but at least USB-C will be a standard.) You will probably never see USB-C on iPads or iPhones.

About once a week. I take a lot of pictures and now I'm using DNG which takes a 10+ MB file plus a JPEG file for every photo. I also shoot a lot of 4k video. I have a couple pre-teens and my sister has 3. I'm sure I'll let up in a couple years.
My computer already has a USB-C port so a USB-C to lightning cable is fine with me.

128 GB would probably be fine...
