    Who says those cases are even for an Apple product?
    Well seeing how multiple sites have them listed as being for the iphone 5 or whatever it is going to be called I would assume they got word from apple when they made the cases. But they could be for something else but that is highly unlikely otherwise it wouldn't say for apple iphone whatever it will be called.

    First of all, I am not a "dude", so save that kind of talk for the streets where it belongs. Secondly, I am not even going to defend my posts with you. I quoted what I was replying to clarity. Thirdly, this is the second time you have told me to relax. You don't know me nor my emotional state while posting on here. Actually, I'm sitting here with my wine cooler and couldn't be more relaxed.
    ooh a real scholar you are. Sorry let me rephrase. Don't take it to heart and act like every person on here is insulting you or whatever it is you are thinking. This is all rumor so let people speculate away. If you do not like what people are saying well then do not read the thread or feel the need to respond back

    Actually, you are trolling again. Sorry, but I have learned a long time ago not to feed the trolls. I have grown very tied of your continued attempts to bait me, and it is obvious that you have nothing worth while to say here, so I shall simply add you to my Ignore list....

    I'm not trying to "bait you" I asked a simple question as to why you commented on what others were speculating about if you did not like what they said. I guess that is trolling

    I like the idea of a 64 GB, larger screen iPhone.

    If it's just an iP4S, I may pass on it, get a suddenly cheaper iP4, and wait for a 2012 LTE iPhone.

    HOWEVER.
    I will make no decision until:
    - It's officially announced by Apple.
    - I have a detailed list of all new hardware and software features.
    - I have details as to what functions will work on my 3GS, the iP4 & the iP4S/iP5.

    - I know nothing about a announcement but in my opinion there will be one.

    - They really don't but perhaps the reason for a slight spec bump in the new device is because they know they don't need a totally redesigned device - at least not yet. Similar to the 3G to 3GS jump.

    - Do you know everyone on this forum?
    I think if Apple thinks the iPhone only needs a "slight spec bump", they are sorely mistaken, I love the iPhone and everything about Apple, but I'm jumping ship if they try to pass off a iPhone 4 with a spec bump as something we should sign 2 year contracts for.

    Does it make any sense that they would make less changes to the 5 than they did to the 4 with an extra 4 months to work on it, and when competitors phones have leapfrogged the iPhone in many ways? The 5 also needs to stay competitive for another year, which by then there will be quad core retina busting Android phones out making the iPhone 4/5 look pretty dated... imo..

    Oh don't point at me. I'll have to defend myself all over again.

    I'll just get this out of the way and I'm not going to debate it anymore with anyone. The next iPhone will not be totally redesigned nor will it have a larger screen. People need to except that and live with it. I don't like it myself. Now maybe and that is a very large maybe there is another phone that I'm not aware of that Apple has kept hidden away. I just highly doubt it.
    So why do you think Apple thinks they can rest on their past success? I just can't figure out what they are thinking here.

    I think with this update all the focus has been on the software side--the last update brought the retina display and the hardware redesign; now we get iCloud, iTunes Match, iMessage, more Airplay/Facetime availability (?) and so on.

    In other words, it's true that the iP4 specs have been matched and sometimes beaten by competitors, but simply having a bigger spec sheet has never been what Apple excels at, or has even tried to excel at. Instead, they're focused on the experience, and hardware is only part of that. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see that this year was more of a software refresh with some slight hardware bumps. Just the iOS 5 features have already got people excited.

    And it's worth remembering that the vast majority of iPhone users are not the usual tipb.com reader. Many are still happily using the 3GS they've never synced, unaware even that they could update their software. I just explained the app switcher to someone who has been using her iP4 for a year; she had no idea it was there. For people like this, specs--if they mean anything at all--are very far down the list, and certainly well below the ease-of-use factor that has made the iPhone so popular in the first place.

    Exactly! The huge majority of consumers look at the overall user experience the iPhone offers rather than the spec sheet. However, I take exception to the characterization that the rumored hardware improvements will be "slight". The jump from the single-core A4 to the dual-core A5 alone is huge, but I doubt the hardware bumps stop there.

    The techie fringe may have a jaded attitude to what this next iPhone may offer, but the overwhelming majority of consumers who can afford it are at near fever pitch. Demand for iPhone 5 is going to be off the charts.

    It is no different than the 3G and 3GS honestly. They simply beefed up the 3G and called it a day. I'm not sure how that is all that shocking. I wish I knew every little detail but I don't. Perhaps they are sticking with that pattern.

    Look at it this way, currently the iPhone 4 is still the best selling phone out there after being out for well over a year at this point. Apple knows a beefed up 4 will sell well. And it will.

    And I'll say it again, I hope to God I've been lied to.

    Exactly! I didn't own an iPhone until #4 and even I remember how many people b*tched about the 3G/3GS bump. Yet...they sold a ton of 'em!

    And I'll say it again, I hope to God I've been lied to.
    So you're sayin' there's a chance?! LOL!!

    I don't think Apple can get away with just beefing up the iphone 4 these days, the competition is stiff and they need to do keep bringing people into its stores.

    When looking at the ipad and the ipad2, i think "iphone 5" will vary in its design compared to the iphone 4.

    And who is to say these cases are not for the next iPhone. They could be, they might be and given the fact that in China nothing is a secret its very likely companies there know full well what the design looks like.

    Of course Apple could change the design of the iPod Touch and those cases could be for that and maybe the iTouch gets the bigger screen. Who knows, none of us for use as it stands today. In a few weeks we will know more, in a month hopefully sooner it will be launched.

    I'll repeat myself here - Not sure how you can say that when the current phone is still out selling every single phone in existence today...

    Oh sure but that's because there's only one iphone 4 compared to different android ones being made by several manufaturers for instance. It is no secret android is activating more phones per single day than the iphone is.

    Looking at my personal case, i would've stayed with ipad1 if it has the same form factor as the newer model. I don't think it is going to be different if the new iphone does not have some sort of physical revision to it.

    I agree with you. If android only had 2 phones then yes they would be selling on par with the iphone. When you have so many choices 1 phone isnt going to get millions more sales than another phone that is similar in specs. Seeing that the i4 is the only real powerhorse and they only release 1 phone a year that is probably about 90% the reason there are such long lines when a new iphone is released.

    I agree. Android has 3D phones now!
    But really, I will be disappointed if they did absolutely nothing during the 3 extra months they had. That's 25% more time than they normally get, that's huge! I know, 80 billion yada yada yada. Maybe they can rest on the laurels and get away with a 4S, but why would they want to? If there aren't serious spec upgrades on this phone, I'm keeping my 4 and enjoying iOS 5.

    Why wouldn't I upgrade to a 4S? Contract. If they plan on releasing a new iPhone June 2012, and I'm renewing my contract in October, I'm not gonna be eligible for the REAL upgrade June 2012.

    Apple has to redesign the iPhone or else their butts will be kicked by Android. Usually they are the first ones to produce a new feature and their r starting to get beat. Apple will have to do pretty well with this iPhone or android might start winning. Im expecting new design, 4g, 10/12 mp camera, thinner lighter, 3 mp front facing camera they want to have reasons why people want an iPhone and not a droid
