Every single thing you've said is incorrect. Why would you pretend otherwise? I'm certainly glad that the Samsung crowd doesn't act like this.
It's being called the iPhone 5 or the "new iPhone", no one outside technical dogmatics are calling it the iPhone 6.
Not even me. Because the latter is correct. The former is not.
And, of course, now that it is being called the iPhone 5, those same hardliners realize that 5 comes after 4, which comes after 3.
Except it isn't, because that's not even a point of consideration, because 3 doesn't come immediately after 1.
Here's another brain teaser, TS: If there were nothing else other than the iPhone 4, and you knew nothing of Apple's pipeline, what would be your guess as to the next model? I know you don't dare say 5, because that would cancel all your previous posts…
So in your world, the number 5 isn't the next integer after 4. So why are you fighting so hard for 5 to come after… Aha! Because in your world, people count, "One, Threegee, ThreegeeEes, Four, FourEss, Five"!
We've found a dimensional traveler, ladies and gentlemen.
Again, I'm not arguing that it will be 5 - in fact I think it will be the "new" iPhone - but I am arguing against the technical blackhole minds that that provide paragraphs like you did to support a totally ingrown notion of how product branding appears to the general public.
And Apple proved to you four years ago (and this year and last year and in 1977 and in 1984 and in 2000 and in 2005 and…) that they dont give a frick about what the general public thinks and will do what they want to do regardless of what the Internet says is the next name of their device.

…considering how dumb Apple thinks we are. They wouldn't know their consumers could actually trace it back and identify that it is not a 5th generation phone.
Apple considers us intelligent enough to handle the fact that last year's iPad has a 2 in the name and this year's iPad has no numbers in the name. I'm pretty sure we can handle an iPhone with no number.
