So will the 16 GB version be dropped? Or will there be 4 including the 128GB

I think Apple will not drop the 16 GB model because that's what they did with the iPad 4 they introduced a 4th model

Wow! You must be kidding me right?
The next iPhone to be called 5S?
And it's confirmed??
Damn! I didn't see that coming.
I should probably read 80% of the news dedicated to fruits more often.

Revolutionary name, who would have ever thought of adding the S after the name. Oh, wait.

I clicked on this article just to say how idiotic it is. It ranks up there with "the sky is blue".

How about some "best app of the week" or "custom rom saturday" article. Something more useful than the iPhone 5s will be officially called the iPhone 5s. I'm starting to lose my faith in you guys.

PA is seriously just publishing the same thing over and over again. The name 5S was a given from the very beginning considering the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S.

Wasted time I'll never get back in my life.

This is almost as newsworthy a the earthshattering announcements that some phone will be available in a color different than the other colors it's already available in. The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available from XXXXXX provider in puke green? OMG, let me pay the $175+10/mo early cancellation fee so I can swtich!!!!11!!

For a moment there, I thought that THIS would be the iphone-related article that doesn't mention the 5C's various colors. Alas, I was wrong.
