So, if any media tells you other-way, it all BS. Smart people knows.

    Smart man - all these BS of delays from ANALyst is to pump up/short the stock and nothing else.

     

    My wallet is f'ing ready....

    The market for phablets is way too big to ignore.

    That is my proof.

    Fixed. I’m totally in favor of a 5.5” iPod touch.

     


    So that Apple won't be able to sell any...or any iPad mini? Whoever comes up with 5.5" iPod at Apple should be fired...lol

    I don't think we should assume that the current form factor will be discontinued, at least not in the near future. If demand for it peters away in favor of a larger iPhone, then that's a decision that can be taken at the time.

    I would say yes..eventually...when they want to get rid of apps for 4" harmonization.

    Yes, the rest of the industry seems to have no problems to produce their 5.5" products, so I think it is safe to say that Apple can and will pull it off just fine.

    So that's our newly re-designed iPhone with a sapphire screen, available tomorrow....

     

    And thanks for coming.

     

    Wait... don't leave yet.  

     

    There's. One. More. Thing.



     

    And Apple goes on to introduce not one, but two completely revolutionary devices..... (and no iWatch).

     

    ------------------

    and then I woke up, so I can't say what happens next.

    I'm thinking the same. I won't see 4" screen going away for at least 2-3 more years. They may just make 5S with color chassis to replace 5C next year.

    Interesting take on the uselessness of small tablets. I approve.

    You're dreaming of Steve Jobs's style too much. It's his signature keynote presentation and no one else at Apple would want to do that to make the fool of himself. Tim Cook has his own way of presenting keynote by delegating others SVP to present their parts. What you have seen so far under Tim Cooks is the format now, no surprise, no "One More Thing" whatsoever.

    I have iPad 2 and retina mini and love them both. The mini is perfectly sized for most of my needs.

    Please do and leave this forum. As one with developer access to the operating system and having tracked it development since day one I can honestly say you are full of crap! IOS has been expanding at a considerable rate challenging developers to keep up.

    I love Apple's hardware (current iPhone and iPad owner) but iOS is seriously lacking behind and the company seems unable to fix age old issues, add much requested features and innovate like they used to do. iOS7 was a gimicky step back, unstable and several system apps were gimped by crappy design decisions. Keeping my iPad Air but seriously considering switching to a Android phone like Xperia Z2.

    In case you're out of touch Samsung is on the ropes their large phones have not been well received at all. The reason is simple they are simply too big to carry around for most people. phablets are a phab ;) Ask around and see how many of those Notes actually left the stores.

    There's a breaking news report from about 6 hours ago of another aluminum dust explosion at a Chinese metal finishing plant killing 75 people. That factory is producing parts for GM but because the Chinese government is said to have put an emergency halt to all similar aluminum production including those at Foxconn facilities the iPhone 6 may see delays now due to the accident. It's still early tho so the impact on Apple's next smartphone isn't entirely clear.

    Edit: for clarity

    I think people missed a bit in the parsing of this article. It referenced the two iPhone sizes [COLOR=blue][SIZE=4][U]AND[/U][/SIZE][/COLOR] a new form factor. Could this mean that iWatch is a new cell phone, or does Apple have something else up its sleeves? Maybe a folder?
