Apple iPhone 5S coming in August, new iPad and refreshed iPad mini may arrive in April

The iPhone 5S is said to feature the same overall design as the iPhone 5, but Apple’s plan is to step up imaging quality with a significantly improved camera and the usual bump up in the processor. At the same time, the company will likely keep the same body, premium materials and thin profile for the iPhone
Also, Apple is seriously considering an April release for a new fifth-generation 9.7-inch iPad and even a refresh of the iPad mini. The iPad 5 is said to be getting the biggest overhaul with a brand new casing matching the style of the iPad mini. As for the 7.9-inch mini, do not expect a Retina display just yet. Apple is committed to keeping battery longevity and sleek designs intact.

is it me or releasing products at this short interval seriously affects brand loyalty ? I mean why would anyone buy anything if it'll be replaced within few months ! HTC did this with One X and One X+ which did piss off few HTC consumers thats why they decided to release only one flagship this year ! http://www.phonearena.com/news

because people are never satisfied with what they have. they'll have the best product out there then complain when it cant do something that another phone can do. unfortunately, its a never ending cycle of unsatisfied customers. most people want the hottest product at least every 6 months.

htc has been doing this for awhile and other manufacturers as well. there was the evo and 3d. samsung and its various versions of gs3. sony and i dont give a hoot. motorola and their razor line. apple was the hold out, now they are changing with the times because it only makes sense if they plan on being competitive. apple will release a cheaper version of the iphone, if they do not. well they will lose out on a potential multi billion dollar opportunity from the rest of the world

Innovation doesn't happen quickly. Everything needs time. Apple Maps and Siri are prime examples when you rush something to the market before it's a finished product (both still require needed updates and they are still in beta).

Actually all die-hard fans have that lemming's mentality. Android fans are a bit worse than Apple fans in my opinion though. Both die-hard sets of fans will follow their respective company til the death but die-hard Android fans make it their job to "evangelize" non-Android users and will verbally attack those that oppose.

iOS devices don't need Hardware changes at all, it's the OS(Software) people are fed up with.

The OS is already the best. No change is necessary.
