I did it – I bit the bullet and ordered the iPhone 6.  Last week I was in my local Apple retailer getting my iPhone 5 battery replaced after Apple FINALLY announced that there were issues with certain iPhone5 batteries.  And because I love shiny new toys, I couldn’t help but check out the iPhone 6.  The customer service girl was all to happy to look up my account and inform me that I was indeed eligible for an upgrade.  Wahoo!  It doesn’t take much for me to resist when it comes to new technology.

I also managed to score a $200 trade-in check for my old iPhone 5 so I only paid a difference of $99 because I upgraded myself to the 64 GB since I was always running out of storage with my 16GB on my old iPhone.

The last time Apple had an upgrade (to the 5), I waited a couple of weeks too. But maybe it was a bit longer because I definitely remember their being a lot more accessories out and available by the time I got the new phone.

I just ordered this one – we’ll see how it is.  It has some good reviews and was only $7.99!  I figured I would hate for my iPhone to come in and not to have a case (my new phone is scheduled to arrive this week!)

iPhone 6 Dandy Case, $7.99 

I’m still in search of an arm band for when I run.  I run several times a week and use the Runkeeper app while I run so I definitely need something soon.
