Why would Apple ditch the iPhone brand for its phablet?

0. phoneArena 20 Feb 2014, 01:10 posted on

There is a new report from from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, there is almost certainly another handheld device coming from Apple this year to go along with the new 4.7-inch iPhone 6. That much isn't really news at this point. The interesting thing is that the Economic Daily News claims that the 5.6-inch device will not carry the iPhone branding. Frankly, we're not sure what to make of this rumor...

Because Apple needs to catch up, that's why. Btw, iPhablet sounds weird.

What's wrong about it? It sounds totally okay.
"I love the iFap."
"Yeah, man!. iFap all day every day!!!"
"iFap ftw!!!"

Oh wait...

Well all of their new "innovations" are copies of something or another now. So instead of a name just do an apology to customers and call it "iF'edup".

Didnt apple criticise the note 1 when it came out. That it will never be successful or something like that. And now they are making their own version of the note... I smell hypocrites.

I think they should name it iFail. At least it would be an accurate name for one of their products.

They already have the iPad Air.. So if this things going to be any thinner than the iPad, it should be aptly named.. "iSheet"!! Yeah, you're welcome!

I'm honestly banking on a rebrand of iPhone Air, iPhone Pro and possibly even iPhone Mini. This would match their computers, and make a lot of sense. Thin all aluminum iPhone Air with a 4.7" screen, an iPhone phablet, and then a 4" plastic iPhone.

I just hope it doesn't take as long to make as the iwatch or imaps are taking... Poor Apple, why do you have to make things so complicated. X(
