It is never a necessity of life to upgrade to the latest and greatest smartphone on the market, even if it is as flashy and cool as the Apple iPhone.
Yet phone carriers and Apple themselves are making it easier than ever to get consumers to upgrade to their new 6s or the 6s Plus. They are doing this by allowing everyone to just make monthly payments. So that sounds enticing, right?
Yet from a business standpoint, is there any reason to make the switch this fall? Will your crews be that much more productive with the 6s models?[Tweet “Upgrading is a good idea to the 6s or 6s Plus if you are still on the 4 or 5 series iPhone.”]
My suggestion is if you are currently on the 4s or 5 iPhones, your crews should definitely consider upgrading to at least the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. These two phones will be very reasonably priced this fall. The reason is because of the quality of the video and camera for taking pictures of their work in the field. The processor is also a lot faster, so loading apps is a breeze.
If you want to spend a few bucks more (monthly), the 6s and 6s Plus are just a bit faster and cooler. The most noticeable difference you will see is with their larger camera size: 12 mega pixels and 4k videos. These phones will also have a 3D touch feature. This will just help save a user a few milliseconds when browsing and using apps and provide a better overall experience. As developers begin to upgrade their apps for the 6s, it will be interesting to see how the new 3D touch technology will play out. I am not sure if the camera and new touch features alone are worth people upgrading. It is only if you really do want the latest and greatest.
I am one of those guys who likes gadgets. It is a hobby for me! So I have preordered my phone. The main thing I am doing differently this year is downgrading the size. I have really enjoyed my iPhone 6 Plus (5.5″ screen). Yet even after 1 year of using it a lot, I still think that I will like the smaller 4.7″ screen better. It fits better in my hands. I’ll update my readers on what I think about the 3D touch just as soon as I’m able to do so.
