    This thread is soooo lame. Does it really matter what the flipping name of the next device is? Way too much time on your hands, people.
    Just because you find the topic that others are interested in discussing "lame" doesn't mean you should post it and question the other members. Not cool.

    Direct from the forum guidelines:

    Respect others - Be courteous to other forum members regardless of their age/race/sexual preference/etc. Be tolerant of those who disagree with your opinion and discuss differences in a constructive manner. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
    Make relevant, meaningful posts - Every post on iMore should add some sort of value to the forum, whether through technical value or community value. Threads and posts that do not further the iPhone community will be locked or deleted at the discretion of the moderators.

    Since it hasn't been that long since Jeremy so kindly requested kindness in this thread, and some people couldn't quite get there, we'll assume this thread has run its course and end it.

    Better yet, all of the junk has been removed along with replies. No reason to let one person ruin a thread for others.

    To the rest of you, please stay on topic or the thread will be closed.

    To name it the 6 would be confusing to some consumers I'm sure. While it isn't technically the 5, it would make more sense to call it that since it was preceded by the 4.

    People counting the generations thinking it will be called iPhone 6 are so wrong. Apple stopped naming the phones by generation the minute they named it iPhone 3G. This was the 2nd generationg but was named after it's inclusion of the 3G radio. The 3Gs was then named because it had been upgraded and had speed. The iPhone 4 just happened to coincidentally be the 4th generation. Out of the 5 models only one has been called by generation since the original iPhone wasn't called iPhone 1. So only once did they name an iPhone based on the generation. It is almost gauranteed they will not call it an iPhone 6, they will call it anything else but an iPhone 6. This would confuse less tech minded people and make no mistake those are the people Apple makes the device for because they are the majority of the market.

    I've wondered, too, about the name iPhone 5 with iOS 6 ??? Talk about getting customers confused! I agree it at least should be iPhone 6 ... or skip the numbers and move into another realm such as iMagic or iPower. Perhaps in the Mac tradition, the iCougar or iWolf (getting into the dog world).

    I would have never thought they would call it ip6 (although I get the theory about the 4s being the 5th iphone) but if they launch ios6 in the new phone-- the idea starts to pick up speed. :-)

    I think the ipad is more in line with computers which is why they went with the new "ipad" sort of how they do that with their macbook line.

    I agree completely with the OP that if they keep the numbering scheme iPhone 6 makes the most sense. It is the 6th iPhone and will most likely be released with iOS 6 and the A6 processor. However I feel that it is more likely for it to just be called the new iPhone or iPhone (6th generation) to fall in line with other Apple products and avoid any numbering confusion.

    After the announcement of "the new iPad" I too started thinking that the next iPhone would be "the new iPhone" but we'll see in about 6 months or so.

    And the 4s was the fifth iPhone, and it came with iOS5 and the A5 processor...oops!

    Apple will either call it the 5 (smart), or something else, phones aren't computers, hopefully they keep giving it a numeric name to distinguish one from another..
