Like the title just wondering who is purchasing the iPhone 5S or iPad 5 when released shortly? Cheers.

I've got iPad 2 and still very happy with it!
Rega RP3 / Goldring 1012gx > Rega Fono MM V2
Synology DS213 > QED Performance USB > Rega DAC > QED Performance RCA
Pathos Classic One > Inakustik LS 1102 cable > Dynaudio Excite X12 and some times BK XLS200 MK II
SBT > G&BL teflon line RCA > NAD 3020i > Supra Classic 2x4mm > Monitor Audio RS1
Not anywhere near launch time. If the rumours of the 5S essentially being the same as the 5 (a la 4 and 4S), that will put me off, but I won't be able to buy anything till mid next year at the earliest. At that point, I'll check out how Windows Phone is faring and make my decision based on that, and may well end up waiting for iPhone 6 if they're still struggling for apps.
I thought launch time was next month?
I am happy with my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini. I may upgrade the phone after next year's launch when my contract expires. It depends on whether it's worth it and whether my old iPhone 4 (that I gave to a daughter) is still supported or not. If it's not supported by then i'll probably upgrade and give her the 5.
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Apple iPad Mini • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
How are we not near it then?
Gel, didn't you tell us quite recently that you only use your 4S for phone calls and nothing else?
Why are you interested in the new ones?
I was interested in who was purchasing one. I forgot to say I do use FaceTime quite a bit too with my iPhone.
I am slightly tempted by the iPad 5 just waiting to see if people recommend purchasing one as an upgrade to the iPad 2. The things that interest me are screen quality and weight (I think). I use my iPad 2 all the time and love it as a gadget. Perhaps fancy a new toy.
Might wait till Black Friday to purchase one though:
Agree with Prof H,I will wait for iPhone 6 and iPad 6 in 2014. + possibly an iWatch. To replace My iPhone 5 and Pad 4.
My original response was in response to your "Anyone Buying?" question in the title and shorthand for "I won't be looking to buy one anywhere near launch time" since the earliest I would be looking to upgrade will be sometime next year due to lack of funds.
it's to expensive to upgrade every year.....
I have an Iphone 5 + Ipad4.
iPhone5, i don't know what the hype is all about, it's nice but i would have been as happy as with a Samsung s3/4 or similar
iPad4, i prefer my 3 year old Toshiba 17,3" notebook over the "iBad".
Even worse i will upgrade my Tosh to a new 17,3"notebook!
