    Default 2014 and beyond iPhone line up? iPhone 6?

    Just, wondering how 2014 line up for iphone? 6, 5SC, 5C or even 2015-- 6S, 6C , 5SC?? I think apple should find some other name, otherwise it'll be very confusing? I think apple should redesign iphone every year to keep up with smartphone market. And just simple line up, example 2014 line up, 6M (max 4.5-5 inch, 6 (4 inch), 6C (colors), 6B (basic 3.5 inch) and 2015 will be 7M, 7, 7C, 7B What do iPhone's fan think?? Rene , anyone??

    Default Next year's line up?

    I'm just curious on what next years line-up will be.

    Since they replaced iPhone 5 with 5C, will that mean that next year we will have

    1) iPhone 6 16/32/64GB
    2) iPhone 5cs 16GB (they will make 5s a plastic one)
    3) iPhone 5c 8GB

    Too much plastic maybe? Or maybe abandon the 3 versions and have only 2 versions? iPhone 6 and iPhone 5cs

    Any ideas?

    Can we at least enjoy the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S before we start speculating about the iPhone 6? .....Still, to answer your question, I have no idea what to expect except that it will be better spec wise in comparison to any previous iPhone version.

    Default Re: Next year's line up?

    I've thought about this and two things make sense. Next year there will be iPhone 6 and so it would be 6c with the 5s internals. If there was a 6s it would be 7c and so the c model would always have a bigger number than the flagship. Now Apple can pretty much do anything they could just have the 6c for both the iPhone 6 and 6s releases and just say the internals have been updated. People would still buy it but personally I don't think it's sexy enough.

    Now think about an iPhone user. They usually upgrade on full number models or they wait for the s model upgrade. Now Apple covers both every year. The c model is the previous years internals. So what I think they will do is drop the s and just have full numbers with the c from now on. So iPhone 6 and 6c, iPhone 7 and 7c, iPhone 8 and 8c. So a customer will just walk in and say I want the iPhone 6,7,8,etc. However they could also do the iPad move and have iPhone and iPhone c. So the customer just says I want the new iPhone.

    It's all interesting and we will not know for sure until next year when Apple reveals the phones.

    The 5S and 5c haven't even hit the shelves and you're asking this? LOL! There is zero information about any future iPhone's...wait until next year to ask this.

    Of course I'm not asking for information, but mostly I try to figure out how they will manage from now on the releases, just for curiosity sake's. Also as Ipheuria said, the current 5s will probably become next years 6c. I don't think that naming is 5cs will be nice.

    Just a brain excercise!

    I'm pretty sure that Tim Cook will ride on stage on a unicorn and announce the iPhone 36 and 36c which will be chips imbedded into the brain of the user making for a completely hands free experience and will be able to supply a flavor burst to the users tongue simply by thinking it. Think Doritos and bam! Nacho cheese flavor hits your taste buds. Of course those would be in app purchases.

    Clearly we cannot. People are not satisfied with what they have (or can have)... they always want something more. #ageofentitlement

    You want a brain exercise? Use that noggin and realize that there's nothing to figure out about any facet of a new iPhone that is coming in 2014...for all we know, Apple will eliminate all iPhones and replace them with cucumbers next year. Speculation, especially prior to the release of THIS year's iPhone, is comical really.

It gets a bit nauseating to read at times..
    Below are the responses in this thread from "ambassadors". Tell me where any of them are disrespectful or like a "glee club", as you put it.

    My other response was with a fellow moderator in regard to a "technical mishap" where one thread became two with the same title. Again, where's the disrespect?

    I understand where some people want to enjoy the current iPhones shine. It gets a bit nauseating when the phone is out and boom we're on to the next rumour. However that is not what this thread is about. We are all Apple loyal, we all know more about Apple's ways than the high paid Analyst idiots out there. So we get a little excited about future Apple stuff where's the harm in that? I thought it was a valid question I even wondered it myself. It's all in fun to speculate on how the introduction of the new phone might affect the line up.

    Default Next year's line up?

    Just to contribute though here's an interesting podcast on apple strategy. http://cubed.fm/2013/09/episode-001-c-if-for-cubed/. I think most if not all have been guests on imore's vector series with Rene. It's worth checking out.

    It is getting to the stage that technology will plato when relating to mobile phone. After all there is a limit to what people want from a phone. Personally I can't think of what major thing that could be added?!

    Maybe I missed it...where was the good question?

    We might as well ask "What's the iPhone going to look like in 2145? What do you think it'll be called when they run out of numbers to fit on the box?", the legitimacy of the information shared would be about the same as what could relevantly be shared in this thread. While we're at it, who's going to win the Superbowl for the next 20 years? Might as well place some bets right?

    I'll tell you what's nauseating...the amount of complaint threads we see on this forum after iPhone announcements because people bought into rumor mill BS and got their hopes up on features, functions and changes that were not even close to being reality. Speculative guessing...you might as well put a bunch of futuristic "changes" and "names" that could take place on any smart phone or computer, put them on a board and throw darts at it to decide what would be good to discuss.

    Maybe Apple will name the next entry level phone the iPhone Pro Ultra Super Awesome Joy Happy Times...maybe they'll call it the 6 and the 6c...maybe they'll call it Koala Bear.

    I actually like "Koala Bear". Apple named the OS X versions after big cats... I say they start naming the iPhones after marsupials (Kangaroo, Koala, Wombat, Tasmanian Devil, Opossum, Glider)...

    Not a problem. No offense taken. I enjoy the business strategy debates is all. But yeah, I can see that most here probably have store lineups and buying the 5S on their minds right now. It's a valid point.

    @Sean Yep, that can be annoying too..lol

    It's too early to make any real prediction on what the next iPhone will or won't be. Lets get the iPhone 5C and 5S out for awhile first, then talk new iPhones.
