Off-topic (maybe not since Apple uses Sony sensors). I'm going to order the new iPhone for my wife at midnight tonight. Not going to lie...I'm excited to play with the new dual camera they put into it....particularly the DOF effect. I had an HTC one at one point that used a dual camera to produce composite image with one camera defocused and the other in focus, but the execution wasn't so great. I personally use android devices, but Apple's execution tends to be more refined, so maybe they've done a better job with this.

my first iPhone was the 3G and I was then using samsungs from that point on. In the las few months my work phone got upgraded from a Samsung to an iPhone 5S. It was confusing for the first day but now that I'm used to it I love it! I couldn't see myself going back to Samsung now. I'm also not bothered that there's newer models as this one is still good. The cameras produce decent images too. That's the only reason I would be interested in a newer model as I know the cameras keep getting even better. I follow a few guys on Instagram that only shoot with an iphone and honestly the stuff they produce is amazing
may not seem like a huge thing but anyone use family sharing?
well my school requires that kids use an ipad, and so I have to buy apps for the kids to use. With family sharing, they can all share the same purchase. It's pretty darn nifty in practice and a good way to lock a whole family into one camp whether apple or android. My wife is using the iphone 5, and she's due for an upgrade, didnt know you could preorder, so will be checking that out.
My kids are pretty much a lock with apple, they already have their icloud accounts for school, however for me, I'll give up my nexus 6p as soon as apple makes a decent fingerprint reader, it's just so useful to have an ultra fast and reliable fingerprint reader, I cant even believe it's this good (try using any iphone/ipad finger reader for a period of time, it totally sucks in comparison). I hate putting in a passcode and at the same time need that feature to keep my phone secure, I keep dropbox on my phone, which has high security stuff I rely on. The usb 3C charging is amazing as well, so fast.
