iPhone 3G vs. iPhone 3GS = Speed (2x the processing power)
iPhone 4 vs. iPhone 4S = Speed (dual core)
iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 5S = Speed (apps will load .0826372 seconds faster)

You are right,but iPhone 5 is faster than any Android handset present on the market,so stop being a hater.

Bomber the S in the iPhone line stands for speed. Apple does a new body 3G, 4, and 5. They then do an enternal upgrade the next year of the processor, ram etc, 3GS, 4S, and probably 5S

The 'S' stands for "Sucker". As in you are a goddam sucker if you buy basically the exact same thing as the previous itteration.

a taller iphone with at least 4.5" is enough! but all apple needs to make its products relevant this year is that they need some UI change, its actually the major request next to the taller iPhone, its UI is stock in 2007, no new stuff! if apple will bring and make it more modern, then it will be worth to buy again!

and apple also needs to have a phone that is competitive to cheaper android, even though apple is not made for cheap market...

but i doubt that 2 iPhone will be revealed since apple is a "1 product per year" kind of company!

about that next iPad mini, they should also upgrade the processor! they should make the processor of the mini similar to what the iPad has! since its just a smaller brother and the price is still near to its big bro (just $170 less).. they should give mercy!

All very good posts. Apple has seen the writing on the wall, and n the stock market. They know its time for a change, hence the shakeup inside of apple with the big wigs. Expect apple to hit a couple homers this year. The iPhone is apples main cash cow, they're not a dumb company,and won't rest on their laurels again for a long while... Apple is back in the innovation lab... Trust that.

I agree with the direction but it's not a solid game plan.

1. Apple should have released a 4.5" phone to begin with. Why even release a 4" model in the first place knowing that every single competitor was rocking a 4.5" screen for months. And they should have been first with a class leading 1080p (or comparable) resolution. Apple still managed to screw it up with every single app showing black bars on release day.

2. Bringing out a cheaper made iPhone is huge mistake. This actually hurts progression and is the reason why Apple hasn't changed iOS; they still wanted to support that crappy 3GS. People tend to forget that a cheap Android phone could be a 6 month old powerhouse; these are not crappy phones. Android superphones tend to depreciate quicker or the carrier is willing to offer a better deal. Who wants to buy a 11 month old iPhone for the same price a month before a new model is dropped? Plus Apple already has cheap phones; the iPhone 4 at $0 and the iPhone 4s at $100. Apple does not need cheap new phones. They need better phones that become cheaper quicker.

3. A retina iPad mini with the same processor as it's big brother will kill the desire to even want a full size iPad. I would even buy a retina A7 iPad mini "if" the price was still $329. Imagine the huge profit loss if your Apple. You think the stock price is low today just wait and see it tank further. Releasing a mini was "partially" good for the consumer but terrible for Apple. Not one sold out iPad 4 story. The mini killed the momentum for the 9.7" iPad. And releasing the mini was a mistake and Steve Jobs knew this. Your giving away the iPad experience at a cheaper cost. If your a huge company buying 1000 iPads for your field rep's you would save $170,000 by going with a mini. Plus who wants to carry a bulky tablet in the field?

Right now Apple is on middle ground. Investors and their customers are doubting Apple's ability in the market against strong competitors. If I was Tim Cook I would have 2 iPhones released every year 6 months apart; a $200 4" model in June and a $300 5" model (with iPen) in January. Equip the iPad mini with a retina display, latest processor and 16gig for $400 and release these 6 months apart (any cheaper your going to cannibalize the 9.7" model and profits). The iPad situation is bad because a $400 mini regardless of specs don't look good to a $200 Nexus 7. Sale it too cheap you screwing your profits and the 9.7" model that got you here.

Fanboy: that was an excellent and well thought out post. One part I disagree with though is releasing a retina mini being bad for the larger iPad. Depends on the persons preference, I'd take the larger one myself. I do see your point though as the larger one didn't sell out, but money is money as long as the books level out In the end. Apples gonna make some changes, heck they already have as far as personnel...I think they'll raise a few eyebrows this year.

I don't think they'll be naming it 5s coz the reason they named the 4s is because it was basically the same phone with 3G issues fixed and siri added. Ithink they'll be naming it iphone-6.
