Will you buy the new iPhone when it launches?

Posted 17 Aug 12

The sixth-generation iPhone could be just four weeks away.

We want to know whether you're planning on buying one. Would you be put off by a smaller dock connector, or convinced to buy it if it has a bigger display?

Let us know your thoughts here.

Ashleigh Allsopp,
Big time, two iPhones. One for me and one for my daughter, and possibly another for the other half, once she stops nagging. The dock doesn't bother me as it will be our first iPhone. We have been waiting for the right one. We weren't happy with the iPhone 4S, but were intending to buy it before it was announced. Do want a bigger screen, 4" would be perfect. So fingers crossed, the new iPhone will tick all the boxes, credit card at the ready. Hopefully Virgin Mobile will have it this time round, otherwise we will have to go with another network.

just to clarify. We were going to buy the next iPhone, that was called the 4S at launch, but were disappointed with its specs and everything else, just like a lot of other people. It was a minor update from the previous model. With the next iPhone model, iPhone 5 or just iPhone, we hope to buy three if its better, has new features, bigger screen etc and not just a minor update. Just like a lot of other people. Hope you understand.
