They held the iPhone 5 event in the Apple Town Hall Theater on Apples Campus last time. So no I would not read a thing into that.

Maybe it varies from place to place...
But where I live, we use the term "nigga" to define stupid black people that think that they are rappers and thieves at the same time (and dress accordingly), and stupid white people that think that they are stupid black people that hink that they are rappers and thieves at the same time.
I explained that I have all respect in the world for people that deserve it, and something as frugal as skin color is not a factor. It doesn't even make sense. Why the hell is that even being brought up?
What is your problem? Seriously, I don't get it.
Actually there were 2. The iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4S. So that does make a trend. Both were introduced in-between. As in 3, 3GS, 4.
4, 4S, and 5.
Motorola's implementation of the fingerprint sensor was horrible. Most of them quit working the first month after owning the phone due to the fact that the sensor had no cover on it and was so gummed up from dirt and touching it it was useless. Apples sensor that was bought with the purchase of authentec allows for the sensor to use rf to read below the skin to see living tissue and can't be fooled like the motorola version, also because of the rf read ability it can be placed behind glass and or plastic to protect it and still work well without all the headache of the sensor getting dirty like moto's then failing.
The screen size is perfect. Too big, and it won't fit in your pocket; too small and you can't read it. 4" is just perfect. "Bigger screen size" is just Android bull crap. If you need a bigger screen, go get an Android and be happy.

What kind of statement is this?
Not really, because the suggestion was that the 5c would be cheap enough to cover off the lowest model, but that the 5 would still be needed for a mid range model. Considering the insides of the two devices are widely thought to be identical, it makes no sense to me that something cheap enough to work as a low end model would not also suffice for a mid-range model. The poster is just assuming that there will be a desire for a cheap phone that isn't plastic and that Apple will fill this need. Sounds like wishful thinking to me.
Possibly so. And we won't know until we know. But just going off Apple's previous pattern, I expect that the iPhone 5 will be around for at least one more product cycle, if not two - no matter what the 5C ends up being. The only question I really have is, which model(s) will next get a bullet, the 4 and/or the 4S? The market for smaller screen smartphones seems to be pretty diminished. I don't know what the margins are for either. But does it make sense to keep producing and selling the small(er) screen iPhones? I don't know the answer to that either. But I'll be curious to see how long the 4 and 4S survive.
I think the iCheap is what's focused on because it is new. People already know and expect the i5s is a faster i5 with a fingerprint sensor. To me what's interesting will be to see the difference between them other than a plastic back. If some rumors are true that they've disabled Siri that would be interesting. It could serve to minimize cannibalization, but on the flip side that would just drive users to download and use Google Now instead.
By telling you to go buy a piece of crap so you know you don't actually want that in a phone.
Guess you'll never use an OS created after 2012, then, huh. Enjoy the past.

I see the same color scheme in iOS7 and as such, it looks to me like iOS7 was designed to appeal to young girls.
As a professional adult male, I will NEVER load that chickish fugly looking color scheme on my iPhone.
