Still flabbergasted that the called it the iPhone 5
I don't know why it's bothering me but iPhone 5? Really? All signs point to 6. It's the 6th Generation AND follow the cycle
Either way, I can't wait to receive it!!!

Apple has to name things keeping the average consumer in mind, not just those that are really into it. The average consumer has no clue what generation of hardware it is. If they named it the six most folks are going to be wondering what happened to the 5. They've identified their naming progression with a new number every year and an S in between. Eventually they will move to something else as I don't see their being an iPhone 12 but until that happens this is what we have and I'm fine with it. It's a darn name, I could really care less what they called no less have it actually bother me.

I don't understand why people are so surprised it's called iPhone 5. There was an iPhone 4s it is totally silly no matter the generation to think they would call it iPhone 6. Apple doesn't care about anyone that would actually know the generations. They care about the 50 year old walking into a store finally fed up with their feature phone.
Shhhhhhhhhh I'll let you in on the biggest secret of all though, the real reason it's called the iPhone 5 is because if it wasn't there would be
on iOS 6
using A6 processor
even Apple wont tempt the fates with that one

If they wouldve called it iPhone 6 : people wouldve said WTF, how come they went from iPhone 4 to 6 ?
If they wouldve named it New iPhone, Everyone wouldve referd to it as iPhone 5 anyway. Just like the new iPad that most people call iPad 3
iPhone 5 was the right move, cause there had been lots of hype for an iPhone 5 for a year and a half and all the free media advertisement put iPhone 5 in people's heads where Apple would really didnt have to do much to get the name out there and just take pre-orders

I don't give two sh*ts what they call it. When Apple puts out a phone I will 99.9% of the time want the phone no matter what the name or model number(?) is.
Then again there are people who are obsessed with these pointless things.
A rose by any other name...

Think they should've went with iPhone 6 too, especially since during the iPhone 4 presentation Steve Jobs said that they were calling it the iPhone 4 because its was the fourth generation iPhone this is an about face of that simple conclusion. I think it's just one of those little things that cause certain people anxiety about the direction of Apple under Tim Cooks leadership. This is by no means a tragedy of any sort it just shows a shift away from what 'Apple' has said before. Either way whether they're calling it 5, 6, 7 or 4 again it'll sell millions

Everyone chill out. The guy expresses frustration over the name of the device and everyone gets on him about it. He can't help it that his life is so boring he has nothing else in the world to worry about except what they call the phone. Cut this bonehead a break...sheesh
