My bet is on the 5CS. Mind you, the A8/M8 chips will put the 5CS firmly in the market for at least two years. Here's two more arguments in favour of the 5CS: No retooling required: The rear shell of the 5CS (see pictures) is very similar to the 5C. Differentiation: the 4 inch 5CS is smaller than the 4.7 inch iPhone 6.  It is a mystery why Apple would abandon this route? Everything is already there. 
 The idea of the 5C was to offset the high production cost of the 5 with an unapologetic plastic shell. I imagine the 5S (with Touch ID) to have an even higher production cost. Colour me surprised if Apple would sell the 5S at a loss.  It'd be more logic to give the 5S a C treatment with an updated A8/M8 processor from the outgoing iPhone 6. So here's the line-up: 6S+ 6S 5CS  Notice how the names are getting a bit silly. Why not: iPhone +, iPhone and iPhone mini?
This really is great news for creatives. The ' stylus - Adobe' combo is going to redefine computing for us, making the iPad Pro an integral part of our creative process. And curiously, Adobe hasn't updated its ink & slide yet ...
To be frank, I quite liked the idea of the C-series: Update an existing outgoing model with new internals and an unapologetic plastic durable shell.   Finally, as an erratum to this thread:   If the 5S is going to get the C treatment, then its name should be '5CS' and not '6C'. '6C' suggests a C treatment of the iPhone 6, which is not going to be the case. Allegedly.
 Hold your horses!The  pen and Force Touch are bound to change the game yet again.  Really, we haven't seen the last of the Post PC era.
Now, this is what I call a great ad for the Apple Watch:      No complex interface, you just DING! (and start the meeting)
 It works with the iPad and your Mac (laptop + desktop).  Apple doesn't mention the iPod. But isn't the iPod a very small iPad Wifi? Perhaps Appleinsider or someone from the forum could try this out? I don't have an iPhone, just the new iPod Touch and feature phone. It could be a nice workaround for those in favour of the 4 inch form factor.
Out of 800 million iTunes users, 10 million subscribed for the free Beta.   Out of those 10 million, how many use the service - excluding their music library - regularly?   And out of those recurring users, how many are willing to subscribe for a monthly fee?   I subscribed to the service, but I am not a recurring user. I am also not willing to pay for the service.
 Keep your old iPhone and instead get the new iPod Touch. You'd be able to answer phone calls on your iPod through Continuity*. (*) Continuity turns your Apple device into a phone by taking advantage of your iPhone's antennas. If I am not mistaken it happens through Bluetooth, a very low radiant.source: ars technica
 Apple is basically giving us a FREE 3 month BETA. They should've warned us. Now some of us have lost their music because they unwittingly tried out an unfinished service full of nasty bugs and UX disasters.  iTunes has been around since 2003. Apple Music is a direct descendant from Beats music. These are hardly first generation products, don't you think?
