  I agree that simply making the phone plastic won't do anything for the price.    But, I would assume if a cheaper iPhone were to happen it wouldn't be that much cheaper than Apple's current handsets. I could see a device akin to the 4S sold for $399. That's only $50 less than the 4S would be sold for anyway. Apple could figure out a way to assemble the new handset that's easier and cheaper than the 4/4S currently are, and that would help them retain their margins or...
I have a feeling the icons and overall design won't change much between now and release. Apple has proudly plastered the new icons all over their website, and I can't seem them changing the overall look of the new icons that drastically before this fall.   Honestly if the icon colors were more muted and less neon it would probably look fine, and that is all I'm expecting Apple to do as far as icons. With the other issues, they may adjust the font colors in some of...
I'm still not convinced it will be plastic or as ugly as some of these mockups seem. But $399 for basically a rebodied 4S sounds about right. I'm sure a lot of the graphical elements of iOS 7 will be turned off to differentiate the new cheaper phone from the higher end 5 and 5S.
Terrible colors. Apples device colors have been off the past 2 years. They need to go back to the bold hues of the older iPod nanos. Strong greens blues oranges and reds.
$99 no contract price will never happen. $99 with contract? That's what the iPhone 5 will be. This rumor is DOA but I do believe a lower cost iPhone will come this year. IMO it may just be an iPhone 4S with Lightning and colors for $399. As far as a larger phone that's a possibility. They could increase the screen size and double the pixel count or completely double the resolution again. But at the sane time I don't know if Apple sees larger screens as a big...
  I think I can agree with this. Apple could have gotten the same new "wow" effect by keeping the old icon designs and placing them into the new layered glass framework.   The old icons just needed the gloss layer removed and they would have been ready to go for iOS 7. 
  iOS 7 is probably a sneak preview of what OS XI will look like.    Apple was smart not to change both drastically this year. iOS 7 will give pros time to get used to Apple's new look in time for OS XI.
The most glaring thing I see is the new "Slide to Unlock" that doesn't include an image of a slider. To new users it doesn't make any sense.Similarly the unlabeled icons in the control center KDarling mentioned.Then there's the hidden spotlight search.All of those changes make the OS more beautiful but at the same time more confusing.
After looking at a full screen photo of what 7 will look like on my device, I can't help but feel that some of the designs are a step back. Overall it's a cohesive new look but the new dock and some of the new icon designs aren't as nice as what's currently there. I wonder why they couldn't keep a similar design and just remove the gloss layer on the icons. I'm sure they could still achieve a similarly beautiful layered look and feel that way? But I'll wait and see...
Not sure if that's a better solution but the pros is that it frees up a page of the home screen. i wonder if they plan to place widgets or something there in iOS 8? The biggest negative I see is that people may accidentally pull down spotlight when they're trying to access notifications and vice-versa.
