Rumors are swirling in the tech world about the official announcement and release of Apple's newest version of the iPhone.

The iPhone 6 has a reported release date of September 9, and will surely come with 'bigger, faster, better' specs.

Most developers and concept designers agree the new phone is likely to have a 4.7 in. screen (and possibly a second version with a 5.5 inch screen), a faster processor, the new iOS8 operating system, upgraded camera, and hopefully better battery life.

The phone will likely be released soon after that announcement, possibly September 19.

I've had my iPhone 4s for close to 3 years, and I'm definitely ready for an upgrade, and now I don't know what to choose!

I know I need more memory space, the 16GB just isn't cutting it anymore. I love the user-friendly aspect of the iPhone, and obviously I've become comfortable with the features and operating system...but the price is definitely something to consider.

Pre-iPhone, I had a very early Android phone, the HTC Droid Eris, and...I hated it. I know plenty of people (Mama C included) who have the Samsung Galaxy series and really like them...but I don't know if I want to switch back to a non-Apple!

Decisions, decisions...help!
