    I am done with this dance. I gave you plenty of reasons. I am not here to defend or attack this analyst but to offer m own predictions. As of yet you have offered none. So since you think I am wrong, why not make your own predictions and we can bookmark this page and meet back in a few months to see who was right. Until then you are just blowing hot air. 
Even better is when they are proved wrong they either disappear, pretend they never made those predictions, or make excuses and pretend they were misunderstood and never made those statements in the first place.    Just a few off the top of my head....it will be the iPhone 6 and not 5, the iPad Mini won't ever be made, the iPhone will always stay at 3.5", the Mac Pro is dead, iOS 6 is perfect and no major changes coming to iOS 7. It is usually the same group of people as...
So you basically concede all my other points and are fixated on the colors? Only Apple knows their reasons but if I had to speculate I would say more colors will appeal to a wider base of consumers. It will also especially appeal to the youth market. It will also clearly differentiate between the iPhone and iPhone lite lines. iOS 7 also introduced a more colorful GUI which seems to indicate they are ready to branch out from white and black. Personally this lite phone...
They will introduce a variety of colors for the same reason they did so with the iPod touch.    I most certainly did explain several reasons. I pointed out they wanted to ditch 3.5" with the 4S and standardize on 4" and lightning. I also said that thanks to the new Qualcomm front end which it will likely include they will no longer need to make 4 versions of the 4S or 5 which will result in a huge cost savings with fewer skus. This will also open the iPhone lite to over...
I already explained my reasons in post #30. 
That is my thinking as well. I think the price is already reflecting the pessimism so if the estimates fail to meet predictions I am hoping there won't be a huge decline. If Apple fails to introduce an iPhone lite or the 5S is universally panned then the stock is in real trouble. With Samsung's stumble with the S4 being received as being blasé it would have been a great time to also introduce a larger display iPhone as well. My guess is that with the iPhone lite and the...
Who cares what this analyst said or how accurate his predictions were in the past? Anyone that has followed Apple and can see logic knows this makes perfect sense. Apple will introduce a $449  iPhone in multiple colors that will probably sell for free or zero on contract. I am surprised people actually think this won't happen. 
Substantial is a huge understatement. A larger iPhone is Samsung's worst nightmare. It would also probably seal the fate of HTC since people that want a large screen but a nice build quality would flock to a 5" iPhone. Right now the biggest draw that the Galaxy has over the iPhone is the screen size. Apple are pretty good at keeping up with all the other specs with the exception of display size. Apple would squeeze Samsung in their one profitable sector and the Chinese...
The point is that they can standardize on both 4" and lightning. The other point is that you will then have a clear demarcation in the iPhone product line with a premium and standard model. Selling older models was only a temporary solution and was never meant to be permanent. Assuming they use the Qualcomm front end that can operate on every single band and carrier in the world that also means far fewer SKU's. Instead of needing to make 4 version of the iPhone 4S and...
You are 100% correct. Many people that buy an S4, HTC One, and other phones did so because they had no choice if they wanted a larger screen. I myself am in this camp. My iPhone 5 seems tiny. I have friends with Android phones with larger screens and the experience is just so much better with a nice big display where everything is easier to see. Games especially benefit. Even typing is easier with more room and the number keys showing in another row. Browsing the internet...
