i will save everyone time waiting round for 10am...
1)iPhone S ame
2)iPhone C heap
3)iPad S ame
4)Mini R etina

Nothing to see here, move along move along. Just another snorefest that has iFans in a uproar to replace all their other S ame devices with newer S ame devices.

uggh, the money that is waited could feed small countries rather than have apple bilk their customers with same S hit Different year

He's just telling it like it is. Apple will tell you otherwise....and you will believe them. You'll buy your incremental upgrade because it will have one extra feature that Apple won't allow you to run on your old iPhone even though it is powerful enough to do so, and you'll never know any better.

royalpayne, you are too funny. Not only do you raw raw apple, you raw raw all the posts that raw raw apple. You arrogant, ridiculous, iFollowers are something else :/

How many S hits does apple have to produce before you guys realize you have spent your life savings on basically a iPhone 1 that has a higher number and a S on it. Apple makes the least amount of changes yearly to save and make them the most amount of money and you guys line up like S heep but worse you praise them on websites such as this one like they are gods :/ :/

I dont know why people like you cant see the success of apple. Google never did anything great yet rather than copying stuffs. I own a nexus 4 and its a shi* i think apple iphone is way better what i had before i regret

Explain why Apple has blatantly copied Apple for the last 2 years. You obviously got a defective Nexus 4 or have never actually used one. There hasn't been an exciting Apple event since 2009.

Its now a marketing gimmick that phones are leaked before the unveiling, its good for business stock prices rise. Theres no need to build anticipation now, iFans would buy a brick with an Apple Logo. The main thing is how to get your share prices up and steal your money while you drool at the same design since iphone 4.

An Iphone costs less than 100$ to make, yet it costs as much as 800$ to buy, pretty hefty premium that needs a bumper cover as soon as you open it from the box.

Lets just wait and see shall we

Not bad at all.....
The optimizations made by apple are matched by none,,,,
The camera is excellent, the battery is now beefed up and superiorly optimized for much superior timings,
Fingerprint scanner is always welcome and handy...
But the best of all.... The A7 chip is just revolutionary! 64-bit, twice as fast, Classy graphics and brilliant architecture...
M7 chip is also INNOVATIVE...
I couldnt have expected any better. Gold 5s for me!

I\'m not sure I am upgrading this time around. My Note II is still working great, but the Note 3 does look pretty sweet. So, I am torn. Yet, if they were to announce a 5\" iPhone, I would have another device to consider.

I liked when Sony during IFA 2013 event talked almost only about the technologies. While Apple always half of event time talks about popularity, biased statistics, sales and how popular they are. It always looks like Apple talks to a people who don't know anything about the technologies just want to follow the trend to show off between their friend and say: "Look, I also have an iPhone, now I'm cool like you!".

And what do you have to say about all the commercials that take a dig at Apple. Dude don't get hurt because it's called marketing. The device in itself is pretty cool and it may not hold up to everyone's demands of screen size, battery or expandable memory ( i know they are very important) but it does offer one thing and that's an unparalleled user experience (again subjective).

It works for a lot of people and in a way better than its competitors so that's what they sell and market.

"Apple always half of event time talks about popularity, biased statistics, sales and how popular they are"

So your point holds no relevance because look at it from any side ...they are popular, they sell well and they do bias stats! (fyi just like every successful company you can think about has done)

I was talking about how Apple presents their products. Other companies more talk about technologies, while Apple half of event time talk about popularity, showing some biased statistics, sales and how popular they are. In other words Apple just tries to convince people that heir product are trendy and "cool". And it is clearly shows that Apple is aiming at audience which priority is trend not technologies. For such people priority is to keep up with fashion and choose only what is trendy, they less care about technology, they mostly want to show off between their friend or so and say: "Look, I have an iPhone and that's why I'm cool!". And all this only proves why Apple makes such minor changes in theyr products such like iPhone every year, because the most of their customers don't care about the technologies, they care only about how much brand name is trendy, that's why there is no technological progress with iPhone.

At least such is my opinion.

So popularity isn't an achievement to brag about, and who said only about that. I still feel iOS 7 and small hardware changes are relevant. Just coz people like to brag about their purchases and choices doesn't make a device bad! that's the crappiest take on any company.

What genius things did other companies innovate that makes iPhone so irrelevant today? iOS users play the same games others do with multiple processors running the same things.

Agreed on RAM but your take is on popularity and being an icon! Guess taking dumps at icon is the new "in" thing in the world.

PS - Things get trendy coz they are relevant. Everyone had lot of respect for Concord to quote another industry but what good did it serve, it wasn't relevant. Even droid manufacturers play the same ball game buddy, their trick is hardware , Nokia's trick is camera(an awesome one at that) . It fits the bill.

What technology? The same chip apple decided not to put in their devices. If you guys realize most of the tech inside most phones is available to all companies. There is nothing innovative about most phones released in the last 2 year. They are all generic cpus, ram, displays and batteries any company choose.
