 And my prediction is an equally priced larger iPhone with the same specs would easily outsell the 4" version. But our predictions mean squat until it happens. The only way I think the 4" could beat a larger one in sales if if they price it higher by $100 or more. 
If Apple sold a the exact same 5c in a few months for $459 or even $399 would it suddenly become junk because it was priced lower? That makes no sense. You could make the argument that Apple doesn't sell below "X%" margin and that would be far more accurate. Lower price does not equal junk.  You can buy a 16GB Nexus 5 for $349 and it is not a junk phone by any means. It is a very nice phone that in many ways is superior to the 5c for a lot less money. Now I realize that...
I agree 100%. I was shocked that they didn't go to 32/64/128 last year but I suppose they have their reasons. But I think this will likely be the year that we see that shift and you will only see 16GB on the lowest price iPhone model they sell intended for pre-paid and 3rd world customers. As far as the colors, I might be in the minority but I would actually prefer a plastic iPhone 6 with a larger display and all the newest specs instead of aluminum. I have a case on my 5s...
Apple wants to move to all 64-bit ASAP so regardless of the size of the displays I expect an all 64-bit line up this year.    Change is inevitable and some will embrace it and others will be dragged along kicking and screaming. You may be against a larger iPhone but you have to be blind if you think Apple will not introduce a larger display this year. The margins will likely be better on this phone as well since they will likely charge $100 more for it but the cost to...
 I agree that the subsidized low end model of the iPhone 6 will likely remain $199. Apple would likely price the 4.8" model around $100 higher but I would love for you to be right and it be priced only $50 more. Your 3rd prediction is puzzling though. Why would they continue the 5c? You can already get it for free on some carriers or close to it. The 5c will very likely be discontinued and replaced with a 6c that is basically the internals of the current 5s in plastic....
You are absolutely right. I would love to see statistics for call usage vs. looking at the display usage for the current iPhone. I would wager most people spend far more time looking at the display than holding it to their ear. I would even love to see some statistics for one handed vs. two handed use for the current 4" iPhone. I tend to prop the phone in the palm of my left hand then use my right hand for touching the display and home button since that is more comfortable...
It is extremely likely the 5s will become the 6c later this year. They will very likely continue making another iteration of a new  4" model as well and at most might increase that to 4.3" if they could keep the entire size of the phone around the same size. This will be the phone for people that feel one handed use is paramount and essential. It makes very little sense for Apple to abandon the very successful small display market where they dominate.    A lot of other...
Given that the Mini doesn't include a display and the CPU in the mini is updated far more frequently by Intel than the Xeon line, it is surprising Apple took this long to issue an update. With all the backlash against Windows 8 and HP even going so far as to bring back Windows 7 as an option citing "back by popular demand" the Mini is the perfect gateway computer to give disgruntled Windows 8 users a reason to check out OS X. Many of these unhappy Windows 8 users may...
What other company do you know where the stock will fall $14 on good news. Apple should be trading above $600 easily.
Although I agree with you that it is very unlikely that Apple would release an iPhone over 5" I disagree that a larger phone "gets too far away from being useful and purposeful" People talk about the importance of one handed operation but how many iPhone owners actually use two hands as much if not more as one handed operation when you are doing tasks that requires more than a quick glance. Years ago during  the number of portrait only mode apps outnumbered ones capable of...
