    I'm going with "iPhone Math" myself.

    The name has a certain cool discipline to it.

    No, in your scenario it would become the 5SC.
    No maybe the 5s will be discontinued and they will only have the 6+. (5.5 in), iPhone 6 (4.7 inch) and 5c (4 inch). Drop the mid-tier last years model.

    New lineup

    iPhone 6+  5.5 screen
    iPhone6 - 4.7 screen
    iPhoneColor - 4.0 screen - 5S in plastic in 5 new colors and black and white
    iPhone 5C - black and white only.  Only in limited markets like China, India

    The lineup should be:
    IPhone 6Note
    iPhone 6
    iPhone 5c

    "6Note" because this is basically comes from the Galaxy Note from Samsung.

    I hope apple copies the HTC One and puts two Front facing speakers on it.

    One small problem: you've omitted the iPhone 5sc. Gotta have the 5sc.

    That makes no sense.

    C)  Nothing?


    I'm also wanting to know, since I really don't want to go any larger than 4 inches, and there are still people who like smaller phones. 

     

    The best would be a 4 Inch iPhone 6, But I'm still happy with a processor bump on the 5S. Going to a plastic model would be a downgrade for people who like the metal 4 inch iPhone.

    iPhone 6C-4.0 inch-$100(or more) 1800 mah battery 16 gb storage, upgrade to 32 gb at $200(like 5C in thickness and possible color variants)

    iPhone 6-4.7 inch-$200 2100 mah battery 16 gb storage, upgrade to 64 gb for $100 or 128 for another $100

    iPhone 6L(for large)-5.5 inch-$300 2900 mah battery 32 gb storage, upgrade to 64 and 128 for $100 each
    Again 6C, 6 and 6L make since

    I think they'll call the 4.7" model the iPhone 6, and the 5.5" model the iPhone 6.

    Don't know if they'll keep the iPhone 5S as is, or replace it with the colour version ala the 5C, but it won't be called an iPhone 6, because it won't be an iPhone 6. It might be the iPhone 5SC, or it might be the new iPhone 5C. Or it could be the iPhone 5CS, or iPhone 5D, or...well pretty much anything.
    I don't see point in 5 total devices with 5 in it and in the end 5 with 6(5,5C,5S,5CS or 5SC) as in the end it's confusing, it used to be 3G or 3GS, 4 or 4S.

    Kill the 5S in total, really?


    That makes no sense.
    It does and would leave the gap for 4.0 inch iPhone 6, again apples only top tier with a 4.0 I don't see why they would kill it, maybe if they did keep it and the phablet, mid size they could target all markets sizes with 1 hardware, as I have pointed out rumors point to it.

    My idea: 

     

    iPhone 5C 16GB 

    iPhone 6 Mini - 4 inch upgraded 5S 32 and 64 GB

    iPhone 6 - 4.7 inch 32,64,128 GB

    iPhone 6 Air.  - 5.5 inch 32,64,128 GB

     

    Keeps with the naming conventions of the iPad.

    iPhone 5c

    iPhone 5s

     

    As is. No changes, except for cascading down the pricing tier.

    England's the place to be for the keynote; it's on at 6pm, the perfect time.

    No. Germany at 7:00 :smokey:

    Sounds about right.

     

    Interestingly enough, my family has chosen one of each in the lineup: a 6, 5S, and 5C. The 20th will be interesting for us.

    I'm really really really hoping for a A8 upgraded 5S :)

    Yes; just replace the 5s with the 5sc.

    No way Apple would tarnish the iPhone6 name and slap it on a 5S in a new shell.  NO. Way. In. Hell.  The only phones that get the coveted 6 will be brand new top end hardware.

    Problem is the 5S is extremely expensive to make at its current form.  No way on earth can Apple afford to sell the 5S at a $100 discount.  Same thing happened with the 5 last year.  They took it out of the lineup because selling a metal 5 at $100 off would kill margins. 

     

    Apple has drawn a clear line between top end and mid level. 

    Top end = metal

    Mid level = plastic

    Even if your phone is 2 years old but if it's METAL you still will be viewed as 'elite' (this is coming from a Chinese perspective) because your phone is metal.  You will not see metal phones at discount prices ever again.

     

    iPhone 6L - 5.5 inch - metal

    iPhone 6 - 4.7 inch - metal

     

    Those are the ELITE phones

     

    iPhone Color - 5S in plastic

    iPhone 5C - only in black/white

     

    Those are the mid-level phones all in plastic

     

    Next years line up

     

    iPhone 6SL - metal 5.5

    iPhone 6S - metal 4.7

    iPhone Color - 4.7 iPhone6 in plastic shell

    iPhone Color - 4.0 iPhone 5S in plastic


    They need a metal 4 inch phone.
