A French website is displaying a photograph that it claims contains images of parts destined for the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 6; the images are of loudspeaker modules for the what will probably be the next two versions of the iconic smartphone and were obtained from a source who has a connection to an Apple supplier...

Wait iPhone 5S or 6? What is going on? Apple is so hurry or feeling the heat from market competition. So given birth to a new rumor propaganda. Apple must admit now its the end of success story. RIP apple, RIP Steve Jobs.

I'd rather get a chinese knock-off iPhone, at least it has Android on it... iOS is so 5 years ago.

Many people dont care about it, like me, but it's just for the fact that it means that a new iphone is coming out and we do get more details about it.

Haha, watching Apple bend to Samsung/Android's game is so cute.

"7inch tablets are fail"
Months later
"Oh no, 7 inch tablets are successful!"
Make iPad Mini

"3.5 inch is the perfect screen size"
Months later
"Oh no, people are lovin the S3 because of it's huge screen!"
Make 4 inch screen iPhone.

and most likely later this year...
"The phablet category is a failure"
Months later
"What? the Notes are a top seller?!"
Make iPhone Math

You are wrong about the ipad mini. It is not a 7 inch tablet. Its a 8 inch tablet and the form factor works way better but whatever.
The iphone 5 wasn't really made to compete with the s3. It still feels like a small device and for apple and many others it still is the perfect size.
And about the phablet category, where did you hear that?
Even if they said all those things, which they did except probably the phablet, it still doesn't mean they can't change products and still make them fit in the same category.
The 7 inch was said to be failure but apple adapted and was successful.
The 4inch screen on the iphone is still perfect for most hands.
Damn this website is full of fandroids on rage about apple for stupid reasons.
I tend to stay away from reading comments because of people like you.
As an android fan i feel sick and i just hope people dont see me like you are.

Who said they are? And why would they be? Even if they rumours are true it doesn't mean s**t. They are giving us choice and tim cook said that they should be worried about canibalization and seeing the success of the iPad mini it might be another successful device.

Yeah, 7.9 is totally not 7inches, my point is they made a smaller tablet because the smaller tablets posed a threat and it was popular, even after Steve Jobs himself said that 9.7 inch was the perfect size and anything else is doomed to fail. Apple has been well known to start markets, but recently, it just seems like their bending to the current market which Android OEMs set.

If it wasn't meant to compete then why increase it since 3.5 inch is the "ideal size" for one handed use? What all iPhone users hands just suddenly grew larger so they had to increase it?

The fact that Apple fans are making fake renders of XL iPhones just show that there's a demand for it. And following Apple's patterns of late, if there's a demand, they wouldn't even stop to question and just follow the trend.

Apple is simply making the changes they feel they need to make as a company to stay competitive n the fast changing tech landscape amiaq. I'm not trying to start a flame war so lets stay mature please. Google has thru it's parters Samsung moto Htc, etc produced an awesome sales model of choice. They have changed the landscape and apple now sees that sales model is the way to go. Y not give us more choice right? Android users have said this for years about apple that apple should give more choice to its fan base. Now that they r they're getting blasted for it. Apple can't win, so what they should do is focus on what the consumer wants, and that's more to choose from. I see nothing wrong with taking a page from androids book, hey android is an awesome platform, and the versatility of the handsets and screen sizes is great to choose from look at it this way. Two car lots one sells only Bentleys, the other Bentleys camarys corvettes and Hondas. Which lots will sell more. Car lot 2 will. This isn't about apple copying, as its more about apple taking notice that change is necessary. I applaud them for slowly coming down from their high horse, and listening to their users. I love my iPhone 5 but I'd love it more if it had a 4.8 screen... Looks like I just may get that. Choice is good, and kudos to android for paving the way.

Yeah, as long as it's now a household name, it's pretty top seller to me.

Considering it is a whole new subcategory of wireless device and many other manufacturers are jumping on board the phablet train, I would say it IS top selling in it's category and doing very well for a new genre. Wrong as usual lol

Dark, can you do us one favor?
No offence, but can you stop using YOUR note II as a reference to everything Android?? So far i've been seeing you write "Written from my note II" and such...it sounds tremendously childish and irrelevant. You may be trying to make a point that you have an Android too, a good Android at that, but it sound very immature... I don't tell you i'm typing from my device do i??

I see so many errors in that logic

1. Apple talked about smaller tablets in general Samsung had already shipped a 8' device apple just saw how much android tablets have grown to nearly be the mayor tablet player

2. 7' was not successful Because Apple adapted it. Apple adapted it because it was successful. Also the iPad mini is not a pocketable ad the competition.

Apple is simply being overwhelmed by competition and they have simply run out of things to do anymore...

It's fast becoming a household name cuz not only is it a great device, but Sammy has learned to market their products by taking a page from apple. Remember the old droid commercials that only focused on specs, and never showed u what the device could do from a practicality standpoint. Well apples commercials were, and still r designed to show how practical the device can b n everyday life. This is what captures the mainstream consumers attention. And if the mainstream consumer isn't interested in your product it will never sell as well, i.e. the nexus 1. It never caught on with the general consumer base, only the tech sector which of course wayyy smaller. Samsung commercials show how useful the note can b n everyday life and that catches the base that matters most. The general consumer. This is y apple has always marketed their products to the general public and u never see apple commercials dwell on specs, the average consumer doesn't know quad core, linux, unix, ram, or internal storage from a hole n the wall. Sammy's learned from apple over the years n a number of areas, and now they're out innovating apple. Notice the note commercials don't mention specs, just useful features.
