Sooo...is Apple planning to make iPhone 6 secure? Is that the big secret?

So far, I am under-whelmed by Apple. The iP6 is looking like a warmed-over iP5S. iOS8 is looking like a warmed-over iOS7. Maybe the iWatch will save Apple. Frankly, there is more excitement over whether MS is going to ditch the Lumia branding for its new WP toys.

It looks too 'tall' and narrow for my taste.

I do have to agree with Evo... Apple usually keeps from packing the highest end specs. That is where they make their profit. Nice shiny outside, but internal mediocrity. Can't fault it as a business plan though, just haven't been thrilled thus far. One has to wonder though... the increments of real world, noticeable changes coming from upgraded internals is not nearly as fast as it used to be. At least not what people are advertising it to be ;)

The 5s was and still is a power beast. On top of that, real work performance and user experience is great. Look at the 2012+ Chevy Camaro. The looks are great. The internals are great. The cost is great. BUT.. The user experience sucks. Can't see sh*t out of the rear window, and there are more blind spots than my own a-hole.

I liked your comment for the connection to the Camaro... lovely cars. And quite frankly, I agree with everything you said ("power beast" being a subjective and confusing term. But it is an all round great phone for the average user.

specs are only as good as the software after all no matter how many cores and how much memory you have a bad wriiten code will lag at the end of the day and run horribly !

I bet you don't care about spec at all even on more potent os, only eyed that shiny gold thing your mouth watering. sigh i'm disgusting write these.

more blind fan boy talk when did i say i'm getting one or that i even ever owned or wanted to own an iPhone all i said was that hardware is as good as the software that comes with it !

Specs aren't everything though, despite the iPhone only having dual core processor and 1GB of RAM it's on par with many android phones that have quad core processors and even in some benchmarks show higher numbers. I have been told that the reason why is because Apple designs its OS to work specifically with its processors. With that being said, Apple has made hardware upgrades to its devices with each new numerical incarnation, if they keep with the pattern we can at least expect the RAM doubling to 2GB.

Ironically, even though the insides are "mediocre" it outperforms all other manufacturers' flagship phones from the same generation consistently. What's the point of having a specced out phone, if the software is too trashy to utilize its power? See Geekbench, for example. I've had BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Android and iOS phones. Apple's products are by far the easiest to use. I like it when things just work as you intuit they might. But that's just me.

Yea, I'm with you on that. It'd be interesting to see. Hoping iOS 8 is just as groundbreaking as the new sizing Apple is trying out.

16. papss unregistered

I'm not quite as narrow minded as many folks here and I'm waiting to see what Apple brings to the table.. I'm sure it will bring things that are carry over things but they usually get some things right.. I'm more concerned over the OS than the actual phone.
