    Next year is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. You're right that in every two years Apple has launched a full new design of phone, either changing size or general housing, the 7 is the exact same size and housing as the 6 and 6s.
    All the rumour sites (that got the details of the 7 pretty much nailed on) are talking about next year being a special launch because of the previously mentioned 10th year. They might do away with the screen or battery on it...

    And therein lies the issue.

    The reason they got the details nailed on is because the chiese workers who are paid poorly risk stealing parts and taking photos during the build process which starts many, many months before apple even thinm about releasing the phone.

    At the moment, all the "information" about a re-design is pure heresay.

    Unfortunately I'll be buying one! Although not decided whether to buy it outright or to do the iPhone purchase plan

    Iphone Payments?
    Yeah I'm getting one too but unsure about payment plan vs paying outright. From what i can tell there are 2 options if paying with instalments:

    1) Upgrade programme
    2) iPhone Payments

    Both are 0% interest, both split the price over 20 months. The only difference so far as I can tell is that Upgrade programme REQUIRES you to buy AppleCare+ (which I don't really want)

    The upside is that after 11 repayments you can upgrade tot he latest iPhone and the plan resets (I assume you return the phone?). If you choose not to, you just continue to the end of the plan (20 months) and keep the phone.

    The 'iPhone Payments' plan to me seems like a no-brainer - 0% over 20 months - why not?

    You can opt out of purchasing Apple Care with the Upgrade Program but your payment plan runs for the full 20 months then (unless you settle the loan early).

    You are right in assuming to upgrade in month 11 that the handset needs to be returned to Apple.
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your account conduct and credit history.

    The new Lightning connected earphones are included.


    The adaptor is also included with every iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. No separate purchase necessary.

    But then again Uncle Apple knows best, such as the 'quality' of the standard earphones on a regular model being worse than the quality from a 1 pair of earphones from Poundland, leaking more than a block of Swiss Cheese used as flood defence

    Ok so it's ready to pre order at the Apple Store, but when do you think John Lewis or Giff Gaff will get some stock?

    I have a 4s which I have had for 5 years and it's not happy, so need to get a new phone soon.

    Has anyone successfully been approved for the loan through the Apple store? The MSE article indicated that they would update it when they understood what the lending criteria is....but haven't seen an update on this mater yet.

    iPhone lovers look very satisfied and happy with new features in iPhone 7 but still few people in different countries facing issue of overheating in latest models. Hope Apple ready to take new challenges and try to sort out this problem soon.

    I actually downgraded from a 6s to an SE 64gb to get much the same power and features in a smaller 5 size. The problem I had was that I wanted the gold colour which was out of stock and not likely to be in stock for some time except at Argos, my nearest Apple Store in Cambridge and the Apple online store. I bought mine from the Apple online store because it was a tenner cheaper.

    Back to the article and the 7 having iOS 10 is a mute point because most current models can upgrade to iOS 10. Even my little SE upgraded to iOS 10.

    The Apple upgrade program is actually a pretty good deal and comparable in price to contract deals of the older model 6s for example from Carphone Warehouse with their 6s 32GB for the price of 16GB deal. The upgrade program doesn't help me though unless there is to be an SEs or SE+ etc.
