    The iPad Mini was a decrease in size and not an increase. Furthermore, it a great deal of people who purchased the iPad Mini purchased them for their small children and as a Apple version of a book reader. In no way am I saying that "everyone" purchased the Mini for those purposes because that would be untrue. Furthermore, the market for a smaller iPad to compete with the Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab and the like was ripe for it and made more sense, in my opinion. I am not convinced that the outcry for a phablet size iPhone is all that great. I could be wrong, though.
    Devices like they GS3 are selling like hot cakes for a reason.
    There are plenty of smaller Android devices on the market to choose from yet the GS3 remains a huge seller.
    The world is ready and has been ready for larger sized devices.

    You could very well be right, but for the sake of this conversation, let's say that the world is indeed ready for larger smartphones. Samsung and others already have larger device readily available for purchase so why does Apple need to create one when they are making money hand over fist with 3.5 and 4-inch display iPhones? Having a choice to choose between a smartphone with a 4.3-inch and greater display and one with a 4-inch or smaller display is already available and the same is true in regard to having a choice between a semi-open OS and a closed one.

    Of course, there are specific things to take into consideration that would assist in the decision making process, however, some people are demanding that Apple create various sized iPhone without seemingly taking into consideration the things you mentioned even caring. Furthermore, some conclude that if Apple don't increase the size of the iPhone to that of its competitors, they are doomed and will suffer a fate like that of RIM/Blackberry.
    I think allowing the OS to get stale will threaten Apple more than keeping the screen size small.

    I agree that modifications to iOS is more pressing than increasing the size of the iPhone at this point in time.

    Lol. You are missing the point my friend. Apple doesn't make a smartphone over 4 inches.
    3.5 -4" is not much of a choice at all.
    Plenty of Apple customers desire to stick with the iPhone but at this point in time there isn't much to chose from as far as screen sizes are concerned but you already know this so I assume you are just trolling now.

    Tim Cook, why are you being so stubborn? Just admit it that you are wrong with the 4" screen and apologize. Now release a 4.85" phone!

    Not really. I'm simply disagreeing.

    That is correct

    That is subjective. Besides, for people who thought that a 3.5-inch display was too small and a 4.3-inch display was too large, the iPhone 5 size is an arguably perfect for them. Still, I understand what you're saying...

    If Apple's core users are satisfied and people who continue to set aside their S3's and Note 2's for the iPhone in it's current state then there is no need for Apple to put out a larger sized device simply because an arguably small percentage of people think they should.
    but you already know this so I assume you are just trolling now.

    The below information says otherwise.

    iPhone 5 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Commercial Reception
    ​Techcrunch reported that the
    iPhone 5 sold out twenty times faster than the 4 and 4S models. Apple said that they were "blown away by the customer response".[97] Phil Schiller, Apple's vice-president of worldwide marketing, said that over two million iPhone 5 orders had been received in the first 24 hours.[98][99]AT&T said that the iPhone 5 was the fastest-selling iPhone the company had ever offered, selling over five million units on launch weekend and exceeding the supply available.[100][101][102] The release and sale of the iPhone 5 has also slowed down the growth of Android according to market share reports released by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.[103]

    I would never be pompous and state that Apple "needs" to release a larger phone. They don't "need" to do a single thing that enters my mind. I also don't want to see them replace the current 4" design with a larger one. But I do wish they would offer a larger size in addition to it in order to accommodate that target audience. While I do agree that Apple is appeasing the majority with its current size offering, I also feel the number of folks desiring a larger screen size is more than some on here give credit to. In the end, Apple will do what Apple feels is best for its business and we will continue to have choices either within the Apple offerings or outside.

    I am excited to see what IOS 7 brings. I just hope it has more substance than simply changing colors, shapes, and patterns.

    There is nothing wrong with you wanting that.

    I may very well be underestimating the amount of people who want an enlarged iPhone, but then again, I may not...

    4.5-5 in device from apple would be perfect for me.

    I know a number of people switching to the s4 solely because they know the name of it and it has a bigger screen.

    I'm not saying everyone is doing that buy it would be nice if they had current sizing options and a bigger model.

    But like stated they will do as they sit best.

    I had to leave iPhone 5 and go to Android's bigger screens because of vision problems. The larger screen is just SO much easier to read on the Droid DNA, and Jelly Bean seems to be just as smooth, and faster than the iPhone 5. But I really enjoy the ease of use and simplicity of iOS, even with it's limitations compared to Android, and I think that a larger screen would be a very profitable addition to the iPhone offerings.

    You make some good points. Apple is losing out on money and customer satisfaction by refusing to provide more options (meaning screen sizes) to their customer base.

    Toyota has the Corolla, and it is probably their best seller, but they also have the Camry because people want a larger car.

    I have a feeling that Apple will deliver on the bigger screened smartphones and like their other products, it will sell and sell big. There is just too much pressure and money to make for them not to. Look at what happened with the iPad Mini. Initially, they said that no one would want a smaller tablet. Then they made one and it sold. Same will happen with the oversized iPhone.

    As much as I would like to see it happen, if Apple does in fact release a 5 plus inch device then it probably won't be until next year.

    I think they do that because the "S" upgrade years they want to keep the case the same size for accessories. That encourages accessory makers to make a broad range of accessories for iPhones.

    Tim Cook, on the Apple earnings conference call....talking about screen size:
    My view continues to be that iPhone 5 has the best display in the industry. We always strive to create the very best display. Some customers value large screen size. Others value other factors such as resolution, color quality, white balance, reflectivity, power consumption, compatibility of apps, portability. Our competitors have made some significant tradeoffs in many of these areas to ship a larger display. We would not ship a larger display iPhone while these tradeoffs exist.
    Apple does better before bigger...

    Can't argue with his logic in that statement, I am not certain which conference call this was mentioned at, but I am assuming it was made before the Droid DNA and HTC One were released.

    No kidding? Geez. There are times I listen to what Cook, Forestall back in the day, and others say and I think "You know, they are dead on and I cannot argue with the stance they take". But then other times, like this, I feel like maybe they are in a bit of denial. I'll never defend an amoled screen against that of the iPhone regardless if it were 10 thousand ppi because the color gamut is simply off. But the screens that HTC are putting out? I would have to argue that the competitor has managed to provide said screen with less trade-offs than ol Tim mentioned at the call.

    I struggle everyday lately because at my size (overgrown to say the least), the iphone looks like a cheese-it in my hands. I crave that larger screen but I don't want to leave IOS. The phone itself in how it functions is perfect for me. I realize I am the minority in wanting that large iphone. And apple has no business changing its approach for those like me. But I wish the option was there. I'm eye-balling the S4 with intensity but ultimately, because of Android, it'll end up returned 10 days and a 35 dollar restock fee later :/

    If Tim Cook said it, then it must be true./sarcasm
    He obviously hasn't seen the DNA or the HTC One, as there are zero tradeoffs in those screens.

    Apple does not have to change its approach for you, but it should indeed take your wants into consideration....
