    I don't think they'd abandon the current 5 design entirely. I think there's credence to a 5C-type model to complement the 5S. Then again, the leaks have been mostly about the plastic phone, not the. next-gen aluminum housing.

    True - most of the leaks are around the cheap iPhone. We have really just seen supposed internals of the 5S. What that actually means, I have no idea.....

    I remember when all the leaks of the iPhone 5 happened, we knew exactly what the phone looked like.

    I'm sticking with the higher end iPhone. I don't think the color models are the 6/7. It will be a cheaper phone.

    If the iPhone 5c is true - then it's game over. Apple will see so many of those. And if it's cheap enough for countries like India, then it's really game over.

    One worry re the 5C is that Apple may cannibalize some of its own sales. But I suppose that those sakes were being taken away by Android and Windows Phone cheap devices anyway, so...

    Maybe both are right and the 5C will take the place of the 5, period, with specs of the 16GB 5, but the plastic shell allows a further price drop. While the 5S stays metallic and is available in 32/64/128 GB versions with the upgraded internal hardware...
