#1
I've heard that iOSX will be released tomorrow. Should I upgrade my iPhone 6? Or wait?

It is usually a good idea to hang back a little when a major iOS upgrade takes place, letting others deal with the bugs (if any).

If there are problems they show up fairly quickly and Apple is usually pretty fast about fixing them. You have to decide your short-term risk tolerance. An iPhone 6 is still a modern machine.

How do I prevent the download. My iPhone is only 16Gb; and I don't want it parked on my iPhone until I'm ready for it.

Go to Settings, General, Storage & Cloud Usage, Manage Storage. Let the app list load. The update file should be iOS10xxxxx. Delete the update file. You should be good for a while. If you start getting nags again, just delete the file again.

I don't know of a way to actually prevent the download short of jailbreaking it.

Since my phone is a work phone (bought/paid for by them) I'll update it. If it breaks it - yay me! vacation from emails and phone calls for awhile.

Just do the update. Don't worry. Be happy.

I keep repairing iPhone 5c and 5S models. About $27 for new screens and I save phones people are discarding. Works for me.

Today's upgrades, even to a new number iOS (9 to 10) are not that big and your phone will tell you if there is not enough space.

I've set my 6S to tell me when an upgrade is available and then decide whether or not to go ahead.

I'm due a new phone, on my plan, in a months time but am wondering if the iPhone 7 is really going to be that big an upgrade. I already use the lightning port vis their camera connect kit cable to stream digitally to a small but portable amplifier and plug my headphones into that. It's a big improvement over straight headphone out which relies on Apples DAC (not too bad) and their headphone amplifier (not too good).

my last phone was the iPhone 6 (16 Gb) and that was nowhere near enough storage as you are probably experiencing. My 6S has 64Gb

Definitely space challenged with 16gb.

We will update all our devices today (iPads, iPhones. aTV and iMacs) but then I am a dev and have been running the betas for a while now. Typically I don't have problems with the upgrades, but I know some people do. In general Apple reacts quickly to problems.

If you have a iPhone 6 you may want to consider the offer from Verizon (and several other carriers). Since most have done away with the 2 year contracts they are looking for ways to lock people into them again. In this case they are offering a "free" upgrade to iPhone 7. The catch is they charge you monthly for the iPhone 7 until the $650 is paid off. However, if you trade in a iPhone 6 (or newer) they will credit your account for the amount of the iPhone 7 payment each month for the two years - so the net cost to you is zero (except for upgrade and taxes which is about $70.) Of course if you then leave Verizon before the 2 years you have to pay off the balance for the iPhone 7. This amounts to basically getting $650 for an iPhone 6 16GB on trade in - the online value of an iPhone 6 is about $200.

Since we live out in the country and have no other realistic options but Verizon I could see no down side to a free upgrade to my wife iPhone 6, and we preordered a 7 yesterday. We have no plans to move and are also tied into a family plan with all her kids that we can't get out of anyway, since at least one of the kids upgrades their phone every year, extending the date we can cancel the contract - lol...

I find it hard to consider $70/month the same as getting a free phone. I have been using an iPhone 5 and been getting $30 off per month. That way my wife gets her 6S Plus, and the bill stays low. Very tempting to upgrade, and I've been a curmudgeonly Luddite for too long. I do kind of resent Apple makes it impossible to upgrade memory on these phones. The iPhone 7 comes with a minimum of 32 GB, but you'd be a fool not to get the first upgrade level to 128.
