"Apple will be praised as the innovator of the industry once again, while trying to sue the crap out of others with these widget patent in the courtroom"

It'll most likely happen...

I think they should build a small version (3.5-4.0 screen) for those that want the smaller phone then a 4.5 inch screen and then to compete with the phablets lol there own phablet stylus and all give each individual iphone series there own software and internal hardware tweeks to help with usablility of the phones. Just my thought on it.

I wouldn't say 4.5 is a phablet size. The Nexus is 4.7 and never heard anyone call it a phablet and Galaxy S 3 is around 4.8

wasn't saying it was phablet I probably mistyped it was thinking phablet was more 5.0-5.5 screen size sorry I usually type on my phone so I don't always notice my mistakes when I proof read.

I dont believe it. I'm calling this one false.

It sound like something an Android manufacture would do. And iPhone Math? It doesnt make any sense...It sounds dumb, almost as bad as the Samsung Foneblet...

God the true is a terrible situation for ifans as if it is true then they will have to buy all 3 "new" iphones this year! History has shown that its not a deterent for ifans to buy the exact same apple device over and over again but just with a minimum change. And because these 3 iphones are new apple devices they MUST have them!!

I never said this is false, or true...mind that O, Sir Jedi.
If this indeed is true, i change my line to- "We will SURELY get the chance to mock at the 3 new iPhones." happy?? Lol.
But let's see what Apple comes with...most of us, including me, would be glad to see an iPhone of 'unconventional' design!!
It's not that i don't like Apple, it's the way they do business.

Hey man some of their business practices piss me off too, but in big business there's no innocence. Whether it Sammy, apple, Pepsi, ford, Nike, or even Sarah Lee. The end goal is the consumers money. One thing I'll say about apple is their products really hold their value at resale time, that rite there makes them good to buy. It's time for apple to re invent their wheel bro. Not the wheel, but their wheel. The iPhone is a tried, and true top notch device, but it's time to step it up. Will they? We'll see

And will their devices hold as much value if they flood the market with more products? The iPhone is fast losing identity to itself if this comes to fruition.

Bigger question I've been wondering; how will apps adjust to three different screen sizes?

The biggest defense of Apple apps is the pixel perfect aspect. Will developers have to make three separate apps to retain that standard or will Apple give up on that and take the Android approach, auto resize them to the screen?

They'd b smart to resize them. Android is not a bad example to follow.

I'm not defending Apple or anything, but it's high time cell phone apps come with adjustable resolution and aspect ratio in the options menu like PC games. Since almost all screen resolutions come with similar aspect ratio... If one could do that, there won't be any need to worry about the resolution carried by the app. Just a thought...
