    Default Apple to release three new iPhone 2013?

    News from businessinsider revealed that Apple is working on three new iPhone models, two of which will be out by June. How do you think if that?

    If this is true, I'm looking forward for its specifications and features.

    Default Apple to release three new iPhone 2013?

    I just cannot see Apple releasing a 4.8" model after issuing a re-design only 5 months ago.
    With that said, I would personally love, Love, LOVE to possess an iPhone with a large 4.8" screen.

    Maybe the Retina iPad mini will really be the iPhone-Max...

    Default Apple to release three new iPhone 2013?

    New iPad, new iPad mini (possibly retina), new iPhone model between June and September, possibly a redesigned low cost model with plastic casing but good specs.

    That's all I can see Apple releasing in the mobile space for 2013.

    My money's on a new iPad, thinner and smaller with the same smaller side bezel non intended touch tech and back as the iPad mini and of course internal spec bump.

    Second up new iPad mini, retina screen and spec bump.

    Third is iPhone 5s same chassis but with a speed bump as well as built in NFC

    I would say the aboves are definite. The two curve balls which might be possible are an iPhone 5 or 5s with a bigger screen iPhone XL???? And maybe just maybe an Apple television running on a custom build of iOS with deep integration with iPhones and iPads and Siri navigation etc.

    The most exciting thing in my book is iOS 7. I felt 6 was a bit of a stop gap/catch up. These new devices will need new iOS to run on them and with the lacklustre responses to iOS 6. Rapid functionality increases of Android OS and blackberry X launching apple need to do something special this time.

    Remember Jonny Ive is in the driving seat for iOS now that's gotta count for something. Apple won't want to alienate existing users. But similar functionality with the same methods of operation but with a beautiful new user interface and a few extra bells and whistles could be exactly what iOS needs!

    Freshen up freshen up

    I don't get that either. I mean I would welcome a bigger iPhone screen but the developers are still to this day optimizing their apps for the iphone 5 4inch screen. All of that would be too much going on IMO.

    Apple is not averse to this sort of thing when it comes to shifting consumer patterns. The success of the S3 and the Note 2 is proof that people want larger screens.

    I'm not too big on large screens but if there is one company in the mobile industry that can make a large screen look sexy then it is Apple.

    I just don't see Apple reducing their profits on lower end iphone models beyond what they do currently. Its far cheaper for them to take older designs, reduce the memory down to 8 or 16GB of storage then to introduce a whole new design and R&D costs for it.

    This would be ideal and the ultimate comeback for Apple since they are obviously allowing the competition to have the Spring and Summer months without unveiling a single device.

    Yep, no doubt, and many of the "image conscious" iPhone users will not settle for a "cheap" knockoff. Personally, after owning several well-built iPhones, I wouldn't want one that didn't keep up with that well-built tradition or one that is not as well-built as the non-cheap version.

    A low cost iPhone would appeal to more cost conscious users. One argument I've always heard from users is the cost of owning an iPhone. From the phone itself to the service contracts. A lower cost iPhone would gain Apple more market share. When Android devices were first introduced, they were giving them away. I remember seeing an ad where you got 2 free Android phones with a new contract (I think it was Verizon). This, undoubtedly, helped Android gain traction over iPhone. A low cost iPhone would possibly reverse the damage done by the low/no cost offerings of Android devices.

    I believe they are behind when it comes to software and innovation. When I take a look at what Samsung has achieved the latest incarnation of the Galaxy IV line- I can't believe the things they can do. Can you?

    Having had the gs2 skyrocket, gs3, and gs4 there's no doubt Samsung has made leaps and bounds BUT what Samsung is lacking is the fluidity in their OS. iOS is so much more fluid and crisp. Touch wiz is a bloated mess. Not to mention the iPhone 5 is a crafted master piece compared to the plastic.

    I agree Samsung touch wiz is s mess but true android os on a Samsung device I think will be in par with ios

    Imo Apple should release a pure android iPhone with ios capabilites like itunes ibook and other apple apps
    I think that apple designs and builds better products and would benifit from having a hybrid android/ios device
