You wait around for new cameras and then they all come at once. Canon has introduced 2 new mid range cameras, the 750D looks like an update of the 700D although the latter has not been ditched from the line up and the 760D has a number of other improvements that pitch it higher.
This report from Digital Camera World covers the basic differences and explains why you will choose one rather than the other to suit your photography.

Canon EOS 760D vs 750D vs 700D: Conclusions
With the launch of these two new APS-C DSLRs, alongside the announcements of the Canon 5DS and Canon 5DS R and the new EOS M3, Canon has made a bold start to 2015.
Will the 760D and 750D cannibalise existing EOS DSLRs? Although the 700D remains in the range, we anticipate it being gradually phased out and the 750D becoming the flagship entry-level EOS.
The 760D is certainly going to be tempting to those photographers looking to step up the range and who would otherwise be considering the 70D. If you don’t need the 70D’s faster frame rate and weather sealing, then the 760D is the smarter buy.
In our opinion, the additional convenience offered by the EOS 760D’s top LCD display and Quick Control Dial alone are worth the £50 premium over the 750D.
