I am so glad I stuck to my iPhone 5s. My next upgrade will be to this new iPhone.

Keen to see what will happen once the iPhone 7 is released. I'd be keen to get my hands on an iPhone 6 or 6S once the prices drop

This will not be the iPhone 7 launch. That, for years and years happens in June or July.

They are desperate for yet more money! They have bills to pay having had the Samsung case reversed...

Sure. If you say so.
Seriously, I still fail to see why people follow Apple lemming style...

Especially:

Employing Child labour!
Not unlocking known terrorists handsets!
Killing handsets not repaired by them (iPhone 6)!

The day will come when iCloud collapses in a heap of dung al la BlackBerry a few years ago and then you'll not be allowed to use your iPhone until it's all up and running again...

Guess your morals are rather selective.

“Once created,” he wrote, “the technique could be used over and over again, on any number of devices. In the physical world, it would be the equivalent of a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks — from restaurants and banks to stores and homes. No reasonable person would find that acceptable.”

It was security related and not for all iPhone repairs.

You are just another SJW that looks at the world in black and white. These issues are complicated and have stories behind them. If you want to be "moral" stop using all your electronics, stop eating meat, stop buying cheap clothing (or anything cheap really), as all these producers/manufacturers employ some kind of questionable ethics to be able to produce their products cheaper than everyone else. Apple and Samsung don't willingly allow child labour, but it does seep into their supply chain. It's just a sick fact of the world we live in.

MaryJane, I applaud the nobility of your pointing out the hypocrisy but you'll find shooing trolls back under the bridge they came from to be more linear engagements than the blind, death spiral "debates" they are fishing for. Don't feed 'em, you'll be happier in the long run.

Trolls I can understand. Hypocrites or stupid people on the other hand are like my flame. I can't help it. I can't take chlorine to the gene pool, but I can try educate.

Yawn. The iPhone 5SE will prolly be just like the iPhone 5c eg. overpriced plastic. Loved it when Apple called the plastic out as hard-coated polycarbonate casing.
