    It makes perfect sense, look at past iPhones, none of them made sense either except for the iPhone 4, obviously Apple doesn't care about matching numbers to generations, 5 comes next after 4 and is what 99% of the general public is already calling this years iPhone.The iPhone 3G was the secondf gen device, the 4S was the 5th gen device, they aren't gonna skip 5 to call it the iPhone 6.

    So 5 is just the most logical, period, calling just the "new iPhone" is retarded and everyone will have fits this time next year when the "new iPhone comes out again. Why on Earth would Apple do something so ridiculously stupid??
    This is the reason why numbers need and will go away.

    The numbers it was called all had a reason:

    iPhone
    iPhone 3G for first iPhone with 3S
    iPhone 3GS which meant iPhone 3G Speed
    iPhone 4 for 4th generation
    iPhone 4S for iPhone 4 Siri. Yes Mr Cook stated it was for Siri.

    Could a 6th gen be called iPhone 5? Yes it could but very unlikely. This is now where numbers should go away as my last post above stated. I firmly believe it will be referred to as iPhone once again.

    People all over this site and others..
    You are 100% wrong about that. In fact, the only thing i have really read on THIS site is people simply referencing the move Apple made with the last iPad release (name wise) and saying that it is logical to assume they would follow the same path. No clamoring, no love or hate for the idea of "The New Iphone", simply people going by Apple's move with "The New iPad".

    To be honest, start calling it exotic animals (like OSX) for all i care...iPhone Zebra Monkey, I'm all in.

    It's not "The New iPad," it's the new iPad. Just as there has always been the new iMac, the new iPod, the new MacBook... and it being introduced as the new iPhone makes perfect sense. And yes, you will still know which one you have as it will be identified in more technical contexts as iPhone (2012) or iPhone (6th Generation).

    LOL, thats the bigger issue for me, I wait 2.5 years to upgrade my iPhone 4 and all I get is space for another row of stagnant icons? No wonder even my die hard Apple friends are buying S3's!
    Really? Apple hasn't even said what the new iPhone will be called or what the true specs are for it and you're this quick to put it down.... Not cool. Anyway, if your friends were that much in a hurry to get a new phone that they couldn't wait till Apple made the announcement, then that is their loss, and I doubt they were the die hard Apple fans that you say they were. Personally, I think people are making too big of a deal out of the whole name thing, and the look thing as well. I've gotten used to hearing about the looks, though. People complain every year about what it looks like, "OMG, the new iPhone looks just like the one last year, I can't get the new one now as no one will know that I have the new one", lmao!

    That worked great when there was only one iPhone, again, I still haven't seen a logical reason for Apple to confuse everybody by just calling it an iPhone.

    BS, on this site and others I've seen countless people throwing fits when someone calls it the 5, they think because they did it with the iPad that its set in stone they are doing the same with the iPhone.

    Where have you been all summer? Have you not seen all the leaks? I hate to break it to you but if you think Apple is gonna give us anything other than a stretched 4S then you are dreaming. It's obvious Apple thinks they are on top and always will be and doesn't care to keep up with the competition who has passed them and is speeding off into the sunset. It would take some really revolutionary hardware to impress me, but nothing is out there to indicate they are doing anything other than another incremental bump. We know iOS6 is a big dud and looks like a joke compared to Androids point release of Jellybean. We know we're getting a 16:9 screen to fit another row of stagnant icons, iOS6 doesn't contain anything else that could spice things up.

    Unless they've pulled the marketing stunt of the decade, and all the leaked phone parts are fake, I'm afraid you're going to be in for a disappointment.


    Anyway, if your friends were that much in a hurry to get a new phone that they couldn't wait till Apple made the announcement, then that is their loss, and I doubt they were the die hard Apple fans that you say they were.
    Sorry but I think I know my friends better than you, their minds were changed by a family member who got a S3, you see, not everybody has blind devotion to a company, even if they are big fans of them. I was surprised they made the switch but apparently the S3 made their iPhones look dated, I'm still waiting to see for myself, I can wait until Sep 12th, although I'm not expecting anything special..

    I really hope you aren't insinuating that I am one of those fashion victims, as you would be sorely mistaken. I could care less if it looks too much like this or that, I care about the hardware and the software, period. I care about the screen being wider, not just taller, I care about getting a better chip that is much faster, I care about a better camera, I care about getting a notification light, and I care about an operating system that isn't stuck in 2007. I always thought it was the fanboys that cared about showing off their iPhones and Macbooks, putting different colored bumpers on their phones everyday to match their skinny jeans and sweater vests..

    Just wait and see when the iPad 4 comes out, will it be the "new iPad"? The "newest iPad"? Or the "new, new iPad"?
    It will be called the newer iPad...

    Not at all! There are plenty of legitimate posters on this website that prefer the phones and features that i do not...and we disagree with things, debate about them...what have you, but where the difference comes in is the spirit in which they post. You understand exactly what I'm referencing, but feel free to post as you like if it makes you happy...it's not like you're subtle.

    It's either new iPhone or iPhone 5. The 4S is already taken... And 4GS is really not likely to happen.

    The iPhone 4S is already the 5th iPhone device, so it will not be called the iPhone 5... fact!

    I think it'll be called "the new iPhone" or "iPhone"

    I think iPhone LTE would be great, but it can't be called that because LTE doesn't exist overseas like it does here. Look at the problems they ran into with the iPad. Had to change the 4G name.

    The chances of it being called iPhone 4GS are about 0.001% and I only say that because anything is possible. It will most likely be named The New iPhone, following what they named the iPad 3. I think they should name it "Apple Galaxy S4"
