Re: IPhone 6 - showing some age

I had a 6+ that was about 4 years old and having no problems. Bought a XR for $750 and now enjoy the improved technology including Face ID which is even better than Touch ID. Think it makes sense to upgrade every 4-5 years even if everything is working well. Technology marches on!

There has never been a feature so compelling that I've felt the need to update as soon as a new OS version is available. Saves me the trouble from the initial inevitable issues. I just wait until the first major patch which is usually much better.
