Report: Next Apple iPhone model is an incremental update
Component makers are forecast to ride Apple's orders to 30% growth sequentially in Q2. Foxconn Electronics chairman Terry Guo previously stated his expectations that business would pick up in April and May, which would be the time that components would be arriving to be assembled into the iconic smartphone. The sources said that if all components arrive without a hitch, in 1 to 2 weeks after the components arrive, the next Apple iPhone would be ready to start being shipped to retail channels for a third quarter launch.
As with any news about the next Apple iPhone at this point in time, have that salt shaker nearby.

The sources say that the seventh generation iPhone will be an incremental update and will be a slightly enhanced version of the current Apple iPhone 5.
"Shut up and take their money"... So (the) their saying goes!

Perhaps offering customers the legal free right of a 2 yr warranty in Europe could be one way to start a better customer experience, asking ifans to pay 200 euro to repair a 13 month old faulty ifans does scream customer service

Last year Apple made £1Billion in just repairs™

U do have 1 + 2 years = 3 Years total of "waranty" period. 1 year warranty from Apple and 2 years from EU consumers right. (whatever it called).
Apple just lost an appeal in Italy court and got fined 1.2M US for it:
Not many know about this and think they just got 1 year warranty and pay after 1 year to get theirs iphones reapired.

The same way they have the past few years – add new features that Android has had for years.

"With the continuation of boring ios, together with the bumped up spec, and the 200 new gimmicky features such as apple maps and siri for the sake of marketing instead of real innovation. There are MORE OF THE SAME...."

Battery life is the issue in all the nexus phone. Hope Motorola will fix it.

Innovation of Apple:
1. iTransfer (bluetooth or NFC)
2. Smart Flash (Dual led flash)
3. You can now download files from third party apps.
This is not innovation!!!!! Better to learn something from Nokia and Samsung.
Just check the gestures of Sammy and the innovation of Nokia

you forgot the no. 4 micro sd card for storage expansion...........:-)
30. tedkord (Posts: 3413; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Apple will never give you a microsd slot. Then they couldn't charge you an extra $100 for each extra 16gb of storage space.
45. BitterTruth (unregistered)
Or probably 200$ extra for micro sd card version?

15. andro. (Posts: 1890; Member since: 16 Sep 2011)
Its gonna be nothing more than an iPhone 5s. The only interesting thing to see in it is what new gimmick apple will a revolutionary new feature to try con ifans to thinking its actually a 'new' iPhone,perhaps the ability to use the iPhone as a TV remote because of an ir addition to the phone? It would mean your TV remote has never looked so beautiful
40. rusticguy (Posts: 2701; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
While using as a TV remote they would make sure that neighbor can see the Apple Logo ... otherwise no fund having an iDevice ...

From a reliable source, the next iphone will have the following features:
1. ilook - tracks your eyes so that screen doesn't go on standby
2. ipause - video stops when user looks away
3. imagic touch - enact screen actions without finger contacting the screen or via screen gestures
4. idroid - (killer feature) iphone can dual boot into Android for those who want Android on an iphone body
5. Nona-core CPU - an additional core to surpass SGS4' S mere 8-core CPU
6. iPatch - Siri's friend. your 24/7 voice-based tech support
7. iSue - app for reporting suspicious Android features that may violate Apple's patents that directs user to nearest Apple legal office.

26. NokiaFTW (Posts: 140; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
Apple is not listening to the people's demands and they are doing what Nokia did and soon they'll be where Nokia is today .

I hate icrap with a passion soooo much that I made all my mates to switch from iPhone to android e.g HTC one x, butterfly, soon the one, s3 and soon s4 but I gotta tell u guys that iphones are god damn fast I know that there iOS is so little to keep it running and the devs fully optimize there games for iOS. That's the iPhone advantage other then that "spit spit" no wonder why the iPhone 5 lost demand in less then 2 months

If Apple keep making a same design, no "INNOVATION". Apple is even more rotten right now!
Listen Apple! iPhone needs more INNOVATION™!!!!!
37. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 5177; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)

41. jellmoo (Posts: 204; Member since: 31 Oct 2011)
Of course it will be an incremental update. They can't let Samsung have all the fun in that regard.

Like this is some news and we didn't know this already.
