The upcoming iPhone 5S and affordable iPhone were planned under Steve Jobs, slips Apple's liaison officer

preceded Tim Cook".As every self-respecting liaison officer, Michael Foulkes talked a lot without committing to anything, but in the effort to convince the DA how hard it is to design and develop a handset, let alone implement a kill switch in these late stages, he slipped and said that the next two iPhones have already been developed, and they even "
What this means is that the plans for the iPhone 5S and the affordable iPhone that are expected to be unveiled this summer, have been in the making during the Steve Jobs times, which we knew to be true for the inexpensive iPhone version, but not for the iPhone 5 upgrade that will follow this year. All told, it seems that 2014 will be the year when the iPhone franchise will start carrying the Tim Cook legacy in full, so we can't wait to see where Apple's CEO will be taking the company next year.

Apple are going to continue claiming this. They want people to believe the magic is still in there. Jobs was not in on the design of the 5, let alone the 5s.

Simply not true. Jobs said 3.5" is perfect so no way he would change it. And claiming that the next wave if phones is the work of Tim cook is a way of stopping people thinking he is useless for not making any changes to the UI yet.

LOL! So, for how many years will they say that their products were planned by Jobs to be accepted by the Apple herd?

As far recent image of Apple is considered, "Cheaper" and "Apple" don't go hand in hand... Many people buy iPhone BECAUSE it is expensive and serves as a sort of status symbol...at least in my country...

What they should've done is say the iPhone 5 was overseen by Tim Cook as part of his training to take over Apple. Maybe let the iPhone 5S be "designed" or "overseen" by Tim too, and gave it the "New, Improved" moniker. Then after stocks slip as they have, come out with iPhone 6, a design created by Steve Jobs but lost for years till it was mysteriously found. We'll call this phone, iPhone6 Classic. Or, we could call it New and Improved Slurm, then Slurm classic, for all the Futurama fans, lol!

All of the comments about the damn UI. Who cares! What's wrong with simple and unfailingly reliable? I will say however, and if this is what's intended by those who want to see a UI change is a drag down menu (for bluetooth, wifi, etc), my apologies. That WOULD be soooooooo nice (hint hint Apple), other than that, leave it alone. But part of the genius of the iPhone IS the simplicity. It's built with a fit and finish that's second to none. It's uber reliable and it's simple for those that are a little technologically challenged. Making it more customizable is a slow process with Apple, but the iPhone flat out works better than any Android tit for tat. For all you haters, there's probably a reason for that.

You should join the rest of us in 2013, where to of the line Android handsets run just as smoothly and in many cases better than the iPhone, while still being more functional and feature rich. Or, stay in 2009 if you prefer.

tedkord, you stop drinking the kool-aid. The average android device goes for less than $150 and does not run androd 4.x. The fact is the typical android device is a p.o.s. commodity device with a cheap 3.5" screen and 3.2 MP camers. People buy android around the world because they are cheap devices. That is what android devices mean, i.e. the poor man's smartphone.

Fourth paragraph proves everything you just wrote to be wrong. You need to get away from Walmart and stop looking at this through cheap eyes, it's the high end flagship devices area are dominating the landscape of Android.
Just because you bought a cheap Android phone doesn't mean the majority of people are like you.
