Apple preparing multiple iPhones, analyst expects September launch
This report agrees with what we’ve just heard about Sharp kicking off screen production for a future Apple iPhone 5S device in June.
"After a slow start, iPhone 5, is now on track to meet carrier volume expectations and iPhone 4 price cuts could stimulate incremental demand near-term," Huberty wrote in a note. "Carriers see the opportunity for Apple to expand market coverage with 5-inch and lower-priced iPhones over time. TD-LTE licenses, and related phone launches, are expected by year-end."
Morgan Stanley has earlier lowered its Apple stock target to $540, but it is still valued “overweigh” meaning it’s a good investment at its current price.

In fairness to apple (gah now I have to go vomit and shower) the 4" screen is perfect for the dainty hands of the teenagers and women that use them XD

Get your facts straight; it's actually 4.01 inches!!!
However, they will ALL only still work just on wi-fi (according to my un-named sources) ♥

Like that .01 inch really matters.

Until iOS gets a real makeover, with even 10 different models, Apple will still be trying to turn a sows ear into a silk purse. Unfortunately, it is looking like the real iOS makeover won't debut until v. 7.1. So maybe another year of same old, same old.

Even if they do, it's still a 4" screen. Apple should be targeting 4.5" screens, still a decent size to the phone without it being a Phablet.

Lol, didn't you read any article in recent time? Everyday there's news saying that the iOS 7 (not 7.1) will receive major overhaul of the UI.

Yeh bit only silly rubbish apple apps which nobody uses regularly like passbook. The same old boring standard useless grid pattern will stay the same sadly...

O my gosh right?! Just like ios 4, 5, 6 were supposed to be major overhauls and change ERRYTHING!
How'd that work out again?

Analyst? I don't trust analysts, they always have their own imagination.

15. tashreef (Posts: 476; Member since: 24 Nov 2012)

why fandroids always ask for bigger screen... 4.5" is large enough for a phone....

Because you're mentally retarded, wear a helmet with lots of stickers, and have to wear water wings at all times. That or you're a geek.

As a multimedia device like smartphones are these days phablets can't be beaten...

They sound legit and still... Will be inferior to top end android devices... Face it iOS is playing catch up now...
26. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1627; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Already android flagships are superior.... Face the facts and stop being an isheep
27. quadrazeus (Posts: 359; Member since: 03 May 2013)
Superior in your opinion. Now just shut up.
Ain't nobody got time for a troll like you.
29. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1627; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
No they have been proven superior, better specs, better os as shown in numerous reach sites including this one... Face it hardware and software android wins... Wait that's everything... Your the apple troll hear..
30. quadrazeus (Posts: 359; Member since: 03 May 2013)
Better specs ≠ Better performance.
I highly recommend you to use an iPhone 5 or a WP because they have optimised OSs. Not a laggy piece of sh!t.

I have a demo iphail 5 at my store. The day we got it, took about an hour to set up (I refuse to give appfail my cc# just to creat e a stupid apple id I will never use) and once it was ready to go, we played with it for about 5 minutes, said "huh. cute." and threw it in the drawer, where it has lived practically untouched ever since.
35. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1627; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Better os = better performance and use of stop using the old tired excuse of closed system fan boys that it just works an android is leggy... My nexus 4 runs far better than any of my iPhone 4s's I had to have. Face it closed system is dead and stop being an isheep

Samsung is also preparing a September launch of galaxy s5! :-)

Is it safe to argue that with the production of multiple ifones, there goes the aura of "uniqueness"?
31. darkkjedii (Posts: 11948; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Smart move by apple if its true. If not oh well back to the drawing board
