    EDIT: Looking more and more likely that it will not be redesigned... I will still hope for the best though. Haha

    I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence, but do you really still think that the iPhone 5 is not going to be redesigned after seeing this video?



    Why on earth would this case manufacturer make all these cases if they were not sure of what was happening??? These look like quality cases, too. Not crappy 50 cent ones.

    I think it's definitely a strong possibility especially since that's where they are manufactured.

    Yes, and also, we know from last year already that Appple was masquerading iPhone 4s as 3GSs..

    So I think that all the strong rumors that Apple will not be releasing a new design are coming from iPhone 4 bodies that Apple is using to test iPhone 5 parts.

    You may be right about the redesign but those are .50 cent cases.

    I sure hope all these case manufacturer's are right, if Apple takes 16 months to come out with an iPhone 4 with a different chip that would be pathetic, and I doubt they would sell like some people think they will. Most of my family and friends have already switched to Android or Window's phones, every single one told me screen size is why.

    By this time next year or 16 months from now when the iPhone 6 should be coming out, this "4s" would be as outdated as a 3G is now. Apple cannot be that dumb.

    I am actually strongly considering the Samsung Galaxy S2 because of the larger screen size.

    It will be redesigned. That whole case-mate thing? It's to keep the public interested and it's a wink and a nod to a redesign. I'm wondering how big ppl here want the screen to be- I don't think they're really gonna increase the size, 3.7" maybe.

    There is no doubt in my mind the Apple is going to introduce a new designed iPhone. As Redbeard put it, why would Apple take 16 months just for a dual-core chip. Plus... this is Tim Cook's first intro of a new iPhone and it will be a "WHOPPER of an iPhone". Believe it !!!! Apple isn't going to put Tim Cook up on the stage for the 1st time and have him show off an "upgraded" iPhone 4. Tuesday Oct. 4th can't come fast enough. It is going to be very exciting.

    I'm hoping that it is a redesign and not just a spec bump. That will push me to use my upgrade with Vz that I have been sitting on for close to a year now.

    It could be because IOS5 is the main focus on this rather than the specs of the phone. I would hope they would upgrade more than just internals but I guess next week we will find out.

    Nah, Apple knows that isn't enough to wow the shareholders.

    I like the Tim Cook/Wow factor argument, it makes sense to have a product that would make a statement and also be its own, not an obvious "part 2". I am also hoping for a redesign, and cannot imagine they would risk the ho-hum of sticking with the same appearance right now

    Nit really relevant. The phone was already done when Steve left, not a lot they could change at that point. He just has to play the hand was dealt, knowing steves history it's a stacked deck.

    I think the people over at Apple are smart enough to realize that the growing presence of Android is a threat. When the 3g and 3gs came out there wasn't as much competition as there is now. Now you have Android phones with 4g capability, bigger screen sizes, and even a 3d feature in some. These type of companies hire analyst's to research these type of trends to find out what the people really want. Apple knows they have to bring it come October 4th, and a simple spec bump with the same body style won't cut it!

    It's obvious Apple knows what the competition is doing. But they rarely react by building feature for feature. They will not insert a 4G chip until 2012 and probably won't ever use a 3D camera. They may increase the screen size, but not to the 4.3-4.7" extreme of recent Android phones.

    Apple also does not hire research analysts to identify trends. They set the trends. Apple doesn't ask people what they want. Steve Jobs once said, A lot of times, people dont know what they want until you show it to them.

    This 5th gen iPhone may or may not have a striking physical redesign. Whatever it does have in terms of hardware & software improvements, people will know they want it once they see it.

    What if we're asking the wrong question?

    I could see the answer to the question being YES, the iPhone 5 will be redesigned.

    But what if this release is NOT the iPhone 5? What if it's the iPhone 4GS which is NOT a redesign - what if that's the Oct 4 announcement and the iPhone 5 comes later, say in the spring, about the anniversary date of the VZW iPhone?

    I'm just simply saying that competition is getting stronger. People have more options for an iPhone-like phone that may have certain features that apples device may not have. If they release a device with the same hardware and some minor upgraded internals, I think a lot of people will be disappointed. Yes Apple sets the standard for the industry, but dont think for one second that they don't pay attention to what people want, there was a huge demand for video chat for the iphone 4 and they gave us FaceTime. Thats just one example of many.

    And why wouldn't a multi-billion dollar global company like apple hire people to analyze what's going on in their own industry.

    If Apple releases 1 device, whether it is redesigned or not, it WILL be the iPhone 5. It is the 5th gen iPhone.

    Yes, and it's also in the presentation. Even if it looks the same as the iPhone 4, I'm certain that apple can present it in a way that makes people very excited.

    Nobody said it isnt the 5th gen they could call it whatever they want tho and could say its the 4s and the i5 will come out later. Just because its the 5th gen doesnt mean it has to be called the i5.
