Sorry I think you're mistaken if you think Apple can wait until next spring for a new flagship phone. And why would anyone coming off a 2 year contract upgrade to the 5 when it would be pretty much guaranteed the 6 is around the corner in the spring. 5 sales would tank and I doubt these colored phones would make up for it.

IF there is a 5C? People are still saying "if"?

I'm guessing because Apple hasn't confirmed anything he wouldn't want to give it away by using phones, plural. Or maybe he doesn't know what Apple will be announcing.

If they really wanted to brighten my day, they'd announce new MacBook Pros as well. The new school year has begun, and still no hint about when we might see those or what improvements they will feature.

An "iPhone 5" reskinned as a 5C wouldn't be compatible with China Mobile. That would seem to potentially blunt it's market impact.

Most people put their phones in a case, so Apple better provide a very functional case design that allows that color to still have meaning. If not then why not just make colored covers that conforms to form and a phone core that only conforms to function.

Form and function don't separate easily if at all.

Opinions are opinions... I'm just taking a stab at what I think may happen.

 

A vast majority of people aren't interested in the timing of their contracts or the release date of the next iPhone model (people are still buying the iPhone 4 and 4S). I know many people that continue using their current phones long after the contract period has ended, just as some like to upgrade ASAP. The "5C" that's introduced will lack some of the features of the flagship model - people who are interested in those features will still opt for the higher end models.

 

Offering the iPhone 5 in different colors may convince a few people from choosing the iPhone 4 or 4S and help push sales of the 5 for a little while longer. Not to mention many people may be satisfied with iOS 7 enough that they decide to use their current phone longer.

 

Then this Spring Apple will drop the iPhone 4 and 4S and the line up will be as follows...

 

5C (16GB) - $0 w/2 yr contract, $329 without

5 (32GB) - $99 w/2 yr contract, $549 without

5S (32GB) - $199 w/2 yr contract, $649 without

 

 

Again, I'm just guessing. One of the biggest complaints about the iPhone is that only one new model is released every year and that sales (and market share) slowly slip away throughout the year. This would be the smartest move for Apple to move to a twice-a-year release schedule and level out sales throughout the year.

I have to laugh every time I read this remark - "Apple's "S" series iPhones have typically been refinements of the models immediately preceding them, and most of the rumors surrounding the "5S" have been in that vein."

It pops up in almost every rumor article. Why do I laugh? Because Apple has had exactly one (1) phone that has used the letter 'S'. What kind of trend does ONE phone make? Get real.

3 white/clear Circles with grey outline may hint at 3 iphone 5s colors with fingerprint home button .....

I have a feeling more people will go case-less with the new durable and colorful plastic design.

The circles represent the home button with built in fingerprint sensor. Really can't wait for that, so tired of having to key in my long iTunes password every time I want to do anything.

They've had at least two.

The 4S:

The 3GS was an upgrade of the 3G so the "S" was an independent addition.

They aren't times of the day, they're hours and minutes. They could mean "we need an additional 97:55 man hours on this date".

For some strange reason, I just want to agressively punch them. Imagine the work done to create a macbook air, and some punk that never had to work to buy it decides to put stickers on it and a bright green rubber case, not to mention what they do with the logo..

 

I find it offensive.

I'm going to have to go with Rogifan on this one.  For this year anyway, NO WAY that the 5s will be delayed until Spring.

 

For future years, I agree that the general PUBLIC PREFERS new models more frequently than once/year.

 

But still, the (rumored) 5c and 5s in requiring the full iOS platform presupposes that the hardware is perfectly aligned with software releases.  And I think that the coordination of hardware with iOS releases in the past has been almost impeccable.  I can't see coordinating major iOS revisions/releases more frequently than once/year.  But maybe I'm just being short-sighted.  Who knows what new hardware (or platforms for that matter) will be in Apple's future.

What mjtomlin said... or maybe it's an expression of available time-off hours for a given store/shift.  Negative indicating that day's allocation was overbooked..?

The grey circles pretty much confirm we are getting fingerprint scanners on the home button. Awesome.

Imagine spending your own hard earned money on a phone and then dropping it and having it break because easily offended people don't like you using a case.

I find that to be even more offensive.

Frankly, I couldn't care less how my phone looks. You see, I don't buy it for its appearance, I buy it for what it can do.

Isn't it interesting that the Android shills accuse iPhone users of being all about status symbol - and then they launch into a rant like Pedro's. Who's the one who's all about image again?

That depends on where the price point is for the 5C and what features it has or doesn't have.
