Actually, they were taking the p**s with the iPhone5 last year.... Apple want to keep riding the wave of iPhone demand with smaller and smaller increments so that when they DO actually release a big update, it starts the momentum all over again. They SHOULD and COULD have releases a 4.8" version last year, but tried to squeeze another 1-2 years out of the current design. I think what's happening now is that Android phones are viable (and in some cases, better) options.

I have had every iPhone since the 3G, but I was HUGELY dissapointed with the iPhone5 last year. I'm looking to upgrade my 4S this year, but unless they release a worthwhile "6", I'll be skipping Apple again.

I'd put good money on this not being iPhone 6 and rather iPhone 5S or something similar. Have we not learned anything from the 4 to 4S debacle and there was the 3, 3G, 3GS too. Seems to soon for a completely 'new' iPhone

Yay! Yet another row of apps that are all the same size and a real eyesore to look at! This is what we all wanted, right guys? Guys...?

Think I'll stick to my Xperia S.

There was no iPhone 3, it went:
iPhone
iPhone 3g
iPhone 3gs
iPhone 4 (leading a lot of idiots to think it was 4g)

It made sense to call the third phone 3gs, so the forth could be called iPhone 4, but now it is only so they can release smaller improvements more often. It would be better if it numbered in order of release.

Based on the timing of my contract I missed the 4s and recently got a 5, if this is true and 5 months after picking up a 5 there is a new 4.8" iPhone I will never buy an Apple phone again!

So if these analysts aren't completely talking out of their arsysts, Apple are trying to power the next generation Macbook by having Steve Jobs spin in his grave...

Smaller iPads...
Bigger iPhone screens...
Increasingly selling iOS as a gaming platform...
Android trouncing iOS in most fields...
Samsung actually winning some of those court cases...

Whizz Whizzzzz Whizzzzzzz WHIZZZZZZZZZZ...

It's Alive! It's Alive! It's Alive, it's Alive, it's Aliiiive!!!

I think the world is past caring now.

Most of us will still buy the products for sure, as they are still the best at what they offer, but the days when Apple were exciting and innovative have past and it's just a routine now. I would like to see another tech company take the opportunity to shake things up :!:

I'm not sure who your friends are but the trend of having to have the latest iPhone died ages ago, no one really cares any more.

Looks like the snow is making somebody a grumpy little petal today then.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.
