Did any of those involve anything protruding?

Well first of all… According to recent articles I've been reading both here and on other websites, the 5C really isn't a failure depending on how you look at the sales figures and statistics.

This is another story, but IMHO, the reason why not many people are buying the 5c is because the 5s is too much more of an attractive piece of hardware to compete with for only $100 difference in price point.

As far as design of the new phone.

All screen size rumors aside… All I can say is That I'd bet my house… That I do not own (lol)… It will not look like a 5S.

Sure. And I bet the new iPhone 6 will have similarities to a 5s....
You know ..like ..the home button...sleep button....mute switch....true tone flash ....but the overall design will not look like a 5s.

Again my opinion yet... Consistently It changes very 2 years to a New hardware overhaul designed model which I am excited for.

Not to me, that one looks way too thin to house much of anything other than the display.

That's exactly what I thought upon reading this article.  The lack of the true-tone flash, in and of itself, would lead one to that conclusion.   having said that, it's considerably wider than the current iPod touch/iPhone.  Doing some rough on screen measurements by scaling the image so that the lightning connector on my iPhone 5 matches the size of the lightning connector in the image, the width is about 0.5" wider (discounting the rounded edge of an iPod versus the flat edge that my iPhone has).  Adding 0.5" to the width and assuming all of that goes to the display and not to wider side bezels, that implies a height increase of 0.5"/9*16, or about 0.875", again, all given to the display.  This would result in a display with dimensions of 4.42" by 2.46" with a diagonal measurement of 5.06", close enough to 5" given my crude measurement of the onscreen image in this article.  Interesting.

Oh come on, this sentence "The fundamental design of the iPhone hasn't really changed since 2007. It simply goes through major enhancements every revision"...is bit of a contradiction to say.

You basically saying that it has changed without changing.

My point is that it would not look the same as last years phone.

Visually… Aesthetically… And internally… This phone will look different.

So it doesn't matter what you think a "fundamental design" of an iPhone is…

Whether that means the home button, the rounded corners, the rectangle shape, the touchscreen interface, these may all be the staples, the cornerstone of all iPhones, but it doesn't mean it's design is not changed.

Take a side comparison of the original iPhone the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 5 and you will see how different materials are used, different mathematics for the design different weight, feel, and thickness…

These are all designs that have changed radically every 2 years with the exception of the 3G which came out the next year.

I do understand what you are saying but, if I was to think your way..... I could also say ALL touch screen phones are no different from each other in design.

Now you do realize how Ridiculous of the statement that would be to say.

"lack of the dual-LED True Tone flash setup found in the iPhone 5s"

Though I suspect this is a fake image, the lack of two distinct LEDs is not a tell-tale sign. LED manufacturers are incorporating multiple-colored LEDs in an individual package (e.g., for LED stage lights) and this is exactly the kind of technology I would expect Apple to use to reduce the size of the LED (to make room for something else).

My money's on a larger iPod Touch... Apple has to do something with the iPod Touch as it is squeezed under the iPad Mini now, with no where to go... so Apple may enhance the shit out of it to give it a place in the lineup of its own... Maybe give it a phone capability of some kind. Not exactly a better iPod, but not exactly a iPhone competitor either.

I'm surprised at the amount of people that are saying 'Steve wouldn't do this'. Steve didn't like the idea of an iPad mini. He didn't want a bigger iPhone. I hate to be the person to state the obvious; Steve has been gone for 2 and a half years. In technology, that is a significant amount of time. We can't base our predictions completely on 'what would Steve do', it is a different game.

I assume they've either incorporated the true tone flash into a single LED and will let the camera protrude in order to keep a decent camera in a slim design (most people are saying they wouldn't do this... They have on the iPod touch for years), or, quite simply, it's a fake. I remember when the iPhone 4 and 5 leaks first came out and everyone had questions about it, instantly hated it and said it's the end of Apple. Have a little faith people. It's Apple. I think they are a few steps ahead of all of us...

Amen.  The 4/4S had the perfect amount of heft.  The 5/5S feels too insignificant/insecure in the hand.  Please don't make the 6 even thinner!

I call BS on this, or at least iPod Touch, but not because of XP.

 

Also... MS is the worst D&D player in the world, so many years spent farming XP only to gain a useless level in Vista. Sad.

A iPod Touch with phone capability is an iPhone, by definition.

A larger iPod Touch with phone capability is a Phablet iPhone, by definition.

 

I don't think "with phone capability" fits here.

Well... Apple products are designed in US, right? But when it comes to manufacturing plants in China, I'd be surprised to learn that they are using Mac Pros. Or any other Macs. Or even latest Microsoft Windows software/hardware. In fact, Windows XP kind of sounds about right.

I'm going to be really bummed if I can't stand my iPhone up on it's edge to watch videos, read stuff, alarm clock, or use all the apps that are meant to utilize the flat edge, end, or flat back of the iPhone. Rounded edges waste internal space as well.

Nope. We have already seen what it will look like from the leaked back plate from a few weeks ago.

post #63 of 79

I have no better idea what the iPhone 6 will or will not look like than anyone else here. I am sure we will have a dozen more purported leaked and fuzzy photos prior to the actual release. I like the design of the 5s as I did with the 4, 4S, and 5 since they are essentially all the same design more or less with a few minor tweaks. But after 4 generations I would be happy if they can make it look different. Now I am the first to say that change just for the sake of change is not a good idea so if they make changes I am betting that there will be good reasons to do so. The 3GS actually felt better in the hand to hold to me so perhaps a little more attention to ergonomics with the design. I think HTC got a few things right like dual front facing speakers. How many of you have to cu your hands over the iPhone speaker to increase the volume sometimes. I also prefer the tapered back over the flat one of the iPhone since that slides in and out of pockets easier and is more comfortable to hold in my opinion since those angular edges of the iPhone can cut into your hand if you hold it a while. The iPhone looks premium and is premium with build quality, but there is a lot they could do to make holding it more comfortable. 

 

In addition to a larger display I hope the bezel especially on the forehead decreases. I think the 5s is already extremely thin so I am not clamoring for one any thinner version but I sure hear a lot of people asking for better battery life. If they kept it the same or even made it thicker and explained that would give an extra 50% battery life I don't think too many would complain. I have been forced to but battery cases for my 4s, 5, and now 5s to be able to use my phone all day so I hope the iPhone 6 will be the first that allows me to skip a battery case and instead by a translucent clear case that will show it off for a change. So count me in for someone that hopes for a completely new design. The 4-5s design worked well but 4  years with essentially the same design is long enough.

Does the FCC test phase have to use the final device casing or can it just use the final board or portions of the board that emit RF?

Why is it so hard to believe?

 

Looking at my 5s right now...in its leather case that Apple made for it....

 

If the camera extruded a millimeter or two, I would never notice, nor would it affect my usage at all. I know Apple bloggers supposedly don't put their phones in cases (whatever)...but seriously, it would not affect me (or most) iPhone users in any way.

It certainly wouldn't affect sales of the device.

 

So really...where is the all the anxiety over it coming from? It is nothing but a silly pet peeve on the part of designer wannabes.

Becuase the iPhone 4 and 5 are quite different.

Either way my point is ...and This should be obvious to everyone here....evey 2 years a new physical design will follow with new features.

Every year there are new features but not a new cosmetic design.

What is going here today on these forums?

How come there is so much confusion about this issue?

Yes and the new iPhone will most likely look like an iPod touch or iPad, which is what we saw in these photos.

But since you keep banging on about new design, what are you expecting? A phone made completely out of sapphire glass? Liquidmetal ? Back to black and white plastic?

Lol

Actually, I expect them to ...try ....Mr. Bond.

Nobody's "banging" about anything.

My first post simply stated, and it's just my opinion, that there is no way the iPhone 6 will look so similar to an iPhone 5.

The history of Apple's iPhone release schedules and model designs suggest I'm right.

It's a competitive market and many already think a new design evey two years is a weakness of Apple.

I would think a different design every year is expecting to much, but waiting 3 years is out if the question.

I am not expecting any radical holographic display, liquid metal casing, bendable display, syminiphias tubenoldio buttnoids contours...
Or any other futuristic craziness.

If I had to put it into words (not that I haven't already) I'd say simply say that it will share characteristics with past iPhones… But will look different than the iPhone 5.

I expect a simple, classy, elegant design from Jony Ive.

That is all.

It's looks like a dud. Or a really proto prototype. Cause there no Truetone , it has that aluminum ring that the iPhone 5 and lower has and was discontinued to match with iOS 7 because the style was iOS 6. Another thing is that the sleep/wake button is on the side. Jonathan Ive, wouldn't do that. Steve Jobs wouldn't approve. The corners looks good. Just the chasy I'd like to see the glass plates on the back like the 5/5s and the Apple logo to light up like the MacBooks.
