I still find it hilarious when someone actually feels that any of the Apple products were unsuccessful...if you truly believe this, you're both delusional and shut off from pretty much all legitimate news sources online (pro and anti-Apple).
And to wrap this up before too much time is wasted discussing obvious information with misinformed people like yourself, why are we talking about the iPad? Even if the iPad had been a complete failure from the beginning, the iPhone has proven to be the epitome of success in all facets...it just ices the cake a little more knowing that everything the company has released has found huge success. The new iPhone could literally be a re-boxed 4S with LTE and it will sell like wild fire like it always does.

To be honest, it's tough to mess it up even if you're making a fake. The new iPhone is NOT going to be a radical change from its predecessor. I can pretty much guarantee that it will be a slate phone with one button... Any mock up that looks like that has a pretty good chance of looking like the real thing when it makes its debut. Well, unless you go all crazy and give it leopard stripes or something, but make it black or white, and you probably won't be far from the mark.

I hope apple doesn't go the route of rimm they thought their design same ole shape and device would never fail and it did apple introduced us to a great product but now its the same design just elongated and different material on the back. they need a change in design this design has been with us for two models now the 4 and 4s it shouldn't carry over to a new phone if so offer an upgraded elongated 4s+ and a new design for the iphone 5 or the next iphone please apple don't do a rimm and get to stuck on the same design.

I don't think it's fair to say that RIMM got stuck either, because honestly, they tried pretty much everything they possibly could to stay relevant, they took the favorite devices and made them bigger and refreshed them, they took on the touch screen, they offered a flip phone...if there is one thing about the Blackberry lineup that i can say, it was definitely diverse as far as design goes, and "stuck" isn't something i'd personally label it as. Their issue was the idea that people found the keyboard as a necessity, and only made one poor attempt at changing that line of thinking with the Storm (which was still not quite on the level since it "clicked", giving the impression of a keyboard like input).

given the fact that these images are just leaks and most likely not the finished product. (we all know how secretive Apple remains) I have very mixed feelings on how it looks. I definately dont care for the headphone jack moved to the bottom at all - that just seems @ss backwards to me, especially for someone who uses earbuds - plug in on top, pull your phone up to catch a quick view, slide back into bag/pocket/sleeve, which every you choose. With the jack on the bottom, that would mean pulling your phone out completely from an upside down position, kinda off to me.
the screen being a bit bigger, ok thats not so bad. I don't mind a larger screen TBH, even though i love my 4S just the way it is as well

I'd be okay with that design so long as they lose the glass back. Besides being relatively easy to break (not speaking from personal experience), it's a finger print magnet and rather slippery. The first thing I did when I got my iPhone 4/4S was to put a matte skin on the back to protect it, make it look cleaner, and to provide more grip. I'm not really the case/bumper type myself.

I guess there's no point on declaring war about which way we put the thing in our pockets... but it does seem logical to me to have that jack at the bottom. I mean, if you put your phone upside down in your pocket with the screen against your leg, then when you take it out it's fast ready in your hand.

Personally I'm not bothered if Apple move the ear/headphone jack from its current position.
I suppose if the jack is on the bottom, then with the cable exiting out of the bottom of it, this then means that its going to be more difficult for the trailing cable to cover part of the screen, like it can do now whereby the cable can cover part of the screen due to it coming out of the top.

I personally prefer the jack on the bottom, cos it's less likely to block the screen. Plus I think it saves even more space inside the device for hardware. But the bad part is the position of the jack on the bottom left is exactly where my pinky rests when holding it right-handed. :'(
