    Unfortunately Apple doesn't see things this way. They are more focused on making internal changes to their iPhone rather that external changes. The new iPhone will have more than a longer screen, it will also have a better camera, LTE, as well as a faster processor. These things alone will get me to switch from the 4S to the new iPhone.

    I'm not saying that I *wouldn't* buy it, especially if it had all these features. All i'm saying is is the current design is old and would also like it to have a new design. At least make it look like *something* new and not feel like a revision.

    I don't see how a 4" screen iPhone would not feel like something new right from the start... Can't wait to see that with my own two eyes! After three 3.5" iPhones, for a couple of weeks I will be like "Whoa!" every time I'll look at it. And if it is a little bit thinner too it will just feel all the more different, sleeker, better. Whatever kind of feature suits you the most, iOS6 has got some for everybody. Everyone is excited about LTE and NFC. Really, what does it take for it to be new, some integrated, collapsible mini bar? When I look at the iPhone 4/4S and think of my old 3GS, I see an improvement in design, materials and performance that was worth at least two generations of similar handsets - and I'd gladly take any iPhone 5 that would still use glass on both sides and sport the same antenna. As far as I'm concerned, the iPhone 4S is purpose and clarity, a flawless blend of style and efficiency, smart engineering in a sharp outfit that quietly states innovation should not be made of plastic. I'm sure that when the final version of the next iPhone will be out there it will be just as amazing,

    I'm sure the final will be close to the leak but expect apple to surprise! maybe twice the current resolution to make up for the new screen size! Sure that is overkill in the retina rating but then again this phone design is set to last for two years. At the end of the day, Apple knows what they are doing and far ahead of competition. The phone will be the most successful iphone yet!

    That is what we were told. If that is the case, this better be much different than the leaks or else it is a 4-year design.

    Look at the leaked photos from 2005. The phone concept looks very similar.

    No doubt that Apple has made it very Fisher Price. I like the idea of being able to mod my phone without jailbreakin.

    Once Jellybean is on the S3, it will make a huge difference in performance and function (or so I have heard).

    On an encouraging note, I was looking at the leaked S3 photos that were floating around up to a week before the launch and they were way off compared to what actually came so maybe the same is happening here.

    If Apple leaks some undesired concepts, then that will make anything that is better look good and worth having.

    Those disappointed by the iPhone5 leaks are disappointed because they want to be disappointed. Those who look for fail, find fail. Think different people.

    Exactly, kch. Besides, look at the number of sales that the 4S has had so far in spite of the number of people who said they wouldn't buy it due to the same design as the 4. IMHO, people need to look past the physical design and start looking at all of the good features that the New iPhone is going to have.

    i actually like the mock up of the iphone 5 as well as the two-tone back
    whether the mock up is or isn't the real thing, i'll buy it

    as for the GS3 i really don't like the look nor do i like the size, it's way to big for me
    not that i've ever been a fan of any samsung phones (both regular as smartphone) even tho i never owned one, all of my friends and family who owned one got rid of it after less than a half year i think

    I actually like the new iPhone rumored pictures. I like the enhanced screen. I have always loved apple and will never stop, but I secretly love the android hudge screens. So I for one am excited for the reveal.
    Check out this picture from this other post on iMore.
    Tim Cook talks new iPhone speculation | iMore.com

    Everything about this picture I love except for one thing...
    THE CHARGER!!!!!?!!!!
    The slot for the charger won't accept the chargers that when know and love today. I'm just saying, but once your at the airport and forgot your charger and you waiting on a flight not to many will offer you a charger that is for your generation!

    I mean sometimes, since I travel a lot, someone has an iPhone and I over hear them say, "Dang! Put charger in check luggage!"

    Then your screwed over with boredism. I may be over reacting. But other than that it passes my inspection...haha.
    Have fun with that one apple
    P.S-Dont have to much cause we like things when they say they are supposed to come out. But take your time and make it the best iPhone yet!

    This comment takes the award for dumbest comment on iMore.

    Are you saying that we should be happy and settle with ANY Apple release? If so, you are an overly obsessed fanboy.

    Your comment about failing is also amusing. I am not going to discuss personal/professional accomplishments online.

    You should have just said, "I don't care what it looks like, I'll buy it because I'm a sheep and follow the Apple."

    I find it a bit strange to feel disappointed on a phone that hasn't even been released yet.

    All the rumors etc are just hearsay, until Apple announces it.

    I think the point here is that Apple are far ahead "in certain areas" as in usability, apps, sales per individual SKU etc

    How did you derive this from what was said? There is NOTHING factual about the new iPhone on the internet right now, just a bunch of "leaked" information that could have come from anywhere...people who are looking to be disappointed with the iPhone anyways are going to do this prematurely of course because that is what they want to reflect as an opinion...

    He was referencing the idea of being turned off to a product that has no official information out on it yet, based on a few tidbits of random (and probably false) information.

    You're quick to label, which tells me that you're probably one of the same people who are already forming negative opinions about a product that hasn't even been PREVIEWED, much less released for a real once over. Interesting you'd call someone a sheep...when you yourself are following a herd.

    Don't see why an iPhone 4 owner like me would be disappointed by the iPhone 5 rumours. It's going to be at least 3x faster, have 2x the RAM, a bigger screen, a better camera, a slicker OS (I'm stuck on my jailbroken iOS4 :'[ ), and I'm even digging the metal back. Might even be able to go caseless now.
    Can't wait!

    Sean - Maybe you forgot to read the name of the thread. I didn't say I was disappointed in the iPhone 5 - I said I was disappointed in the iPhone 5 Rumored Photos. It doesn't matter if it has 20 GB RAM and 5GHz and other insane hardware specs - the images are proposed to be the final version and that is what I am disappointed in.

    Again, I don't care what is on the outside. I want the outside to look great.

    It reminds me of when you friends try to hook you up with an ugly girl. You ask if she is pretty and they say, "She is really nice." [Referring to inside beauty.] The outside has to equally be as nice.

    I think pappy53 hit the nail on the head.

    No they will only lose a few because their loyal followers upgrade no matter how tiny if an upgrade it is. Reason why I phones sell so well.

    I repeat...there is no legitimate information online right now about the iPhone, that includes pictures. Those are leaks, and if anyone recalls what happened last year before the 4S release, the amount of purely bogus "pictures" of the coming phone was staggering. Again, anyone that is disappointed with the info that is on the internet right now is doing so prematurely.

    To use your analogy in a way...it'd be like a friend hooking you up with a girl he's never met or seen before, and when you ask what she looks like, he goes "Well, i searched for this girls name on the internet and found this picture on google images...", having no real idea if that person is her or some random stranger somewhere far away. And you decide to be disgusted because you assume that is her.

    You act as if anyone who upgrades to a minimally updated iPhone model is doing so purely from a loyalty to Apple...what about people who simply prefer the way the iPhone is laid out (iOS and design wise)? Those people who prefer the customer service given to consumers who buy Apple products? Those who don't feel the upgrades throughout the generations of iPhone's were minimalistic?

    I could literally go on for days with variations of different kinds of approaches to people who buy iPhones and why they do it outside of the idea that it's simply through loyalty. And loyalty certainly deserves it's place within the reasoning, but i find it laughable that someone would consider that a main reason iPhone's sell so well...and absurd if anyone considers it the ONLY reason they sell so well (as you seemed to imply).

    Never said it was the only reason I said its one of the main reasons and its laughable if you think otherwise. Also to go with your 'how its laid out' I think more has to do with people buying it because it is an iPhone and they do not care about anything else.

    And the leaks could very well end up being legitimate then you would be eating those words right now its just leaks but in a few weeks we will find out for sure.

    You're absolutely right, they could end up being the end product pictures...no doubt about that. But words will not be eaten my friend , I'm simply talking about the "now", where people are getting pissy over pictures that are just early leaks of something that MIGHT be the iPhone, or MIGHT be a chinese knock off. Point being, hold your passionate judgement for the real deal...it can go either way on these things (like last year, where everyone hyped up a bunch of leaked pictures that turned out to be BS).

    As far as what you said before, i can only go on your own comment, which was "Reason why I phones sell so well." I didn't see "one of the reasons" there, so i could only retort on what i was reading...
