you can't S Off after this sense 6 update it contains hboot 1.57 which is unhackable
Better try before update up to 1.55 full hackable 1.56 depends on your luck some get S Off some not

if you S Off first then update then you don't get S On automatically you have to do manually

never turn back s-on unless you send the phone for repair under warranty. And if you s-on for this purpose, downgrade the phone before to 1.44 or 1.54. turning s-on on hboot 1.55 and up will make the tampered flag to show in the bootloader after a few reboots so you'll be stuck with this flag and removing it require s-off.

like @yatindroid said, better to s-off now, its really easier to do on lower hboot version. However its possible to s-off on hboot 1.57 but there is no guarantee it will work, better to do it before updating.
