Mingis on Tech (Apple edition): To iPhone 7 or not?

Mingis on Tech (Apple edition): To iPhone 7 or not?

It's as predictable as falling leaves in autumn: Apple unveils a new iPhone and Executive News Editor Ken Mingis insists this will be the year he finally skips an upgrade.

Why wait? His current "bros gold" iPhone 6S Plus works just fine, and the really revamped iPhone isn't coming out until next year. Sure, the new iPhone 7 has a fancy new camera, super fast quad-core processor, brighter screen and no audio jack

But getting a new iPhone means having to pre-order at 3 a.m. ET, because if you're buying, you want to get it on the first day of availability, right?

So in this episode, Mingis puts on his Hamlet hat -- "to buy or not to buy" -- as he and Multimedia Editor Keith Shaw and Apple expert Michael deAgonia debate the details of the new iPhone 7 and the new Apple Watch Series 2. (Hamlet swears he's not buying one of those either.)

It's given that deAgonia will be upgrading his iPhone 6S Plus and getting a new Apple Watch, because...work. And when it comes down to it, neither he nor Shaw is buying the Hamlet routine.

We'll know how it all turns out by the time our next episode airs.
