Should I Upgrade to iPhone 6 from Older iPhones?

iPhone-6-alongside-the-entire-iPhone-family Is it worth to upgrade to iPhone 6? This is a frequently-asked question since iPhone 6 was released on Sep.9th. All right, if you’re an iPhone user and considering whether upgrade to iPhone 6 or not, answers and tips are here.  

1. Should I upgrade from iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 or even older iPhones?

Answer: Strongly recommend. Reasons: The iPhone 4 was released in June of 2010, but was still available at $0 on contract until September of 2013. While iPhone 4S was released in October of 2011, and end up the contract within this year. If you're not on contract, or are eligible for an upgrade for any reason, you should definitely take it. Starting from $199 or $299 on contract, and if you can afford an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, however, they'll give you everything modern iPhones and iOS 8 have to offer, and will serve you well for years to come.  

2. Should I upgrade from iPhone 5?

Answer: At least think about it. Reasons: The iPhone 5 was launched in September of 2012, but was discontinued a year later. Once upgrading to iPhone 6, you'll get a bigger size screen, NFC radio for Apple Pay payments, fast LTE Advanced and 802.11ac networking, better iSight and FaceTime cameras, and be future-proofed for a least a couple years to come.  

3. Should I upgrade from iPhone 5C?

Answer: Well, think over before you upgrade. Reasons: Compared with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C has a new, fun, colorful plastic coating. If you got an iPhone 5C last year since it released, it’s still on contract, and the early termination fees (ETFs) may not be so financial unattractive. Well, think over before upgrading, even though iPhone 6 may give you better experience.  

4. Should I upgrade from iPhone 5S?

Answer: Actually, it’s not a good choice. Reasons: The iPhone 6 has a bigger screen, NFC radio for Apple Pay payments, fast LTE Advanced and 802.11ac networking, better iSight and FaceTime cameras than iPhone 5S. However, although iPhone 5S was released last year, undoubtedly it’s still a good phone if you’re not a big fan of cutting edge technology.

All in all, if your iPhone (whatever model) is still on contract, early termination fees should be on your consideration before upgrading.
