If Apple does go with the "new iPhone" naming instead of "iPhone 6" etc., then they'll only say "new iPhone" in marketing materials. Just like with "the new iPad" circa 2012. When referring to them internally, they may just go with the naming scheme for Macs. As in "Retina, 15-inch, Late-2013." The year would be the actual release year, not the "model year" like automobile makers do.
