    I'm leaning towards this reason. If you notice that on the stickers on the back of the boxes that show you all the info, they feel a bit more different that previous. A little bit more rougher. Feels like a different material.
    Recycled paper boxes have that thicker more rough feel. So I think that is what is going on here.

    Well there's goes our hunch on the "easier to make" boxes for all phones because you don't have to put the color of the phone on the box.

    Did anyone notice that whatever color phone you have, that's the color of the "iPhone" writing on the side?
    I noticed on Friday when the lady next to me was picking up her gold and I was getting the silver.

    Are these all yours? If so, why do you have so many?
    It's kind of a tradition
    Here is one from the iPhone 4 launch, when I use to augment my mobile set up with blackberry.




    I currently use 4 iPhones each with a different SIM card, I travel a lot for business; venture capitalist focusing in the mobile sector, so I need to stay connected and accessible.

    Most of my colleagues are either utilizing two or three handsets each.

    Not sure where this will lead, as far as future naming conventions, but if the pattern holds, next fall will bring the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

    Notice the 6 is the only one with an apple in front. Also, notice it's called Apple Pay and Apple Watch not iPay and iWatch. I get the feeling it will be Apple Phone very soon.

    I don't think they would have ever used Ipay, I + a verb doesn't seem to work. Apple never released an iplay, instead it was air play and carplay.

    Regarding apple watch, it's a peripheral not a stand alone product. Think Apple TV.

    I didn't know what to think when I first saw the packaging. Haha I don't necessarily like it but I'm not worried about the box! I did however expect something great.

    I think they are prepping us for a new naming scheme just here me out in the past we have always had the number designation now you have just iPhone on the box. I think they are moving away and the future iPhones will be just that just like their MacBooks and other devices no numbers just names. The blank white box is apple to a tee one they were releasing a new product if the box partners printed the actual image color and so on the box this would have leaked and confirmed more crap so apple just left it plain and white with a big phone on it like a casket or something. this is just my thoughts but get ready for no more numbers the next iPhone will be just that iPhone and iPhone Plus

    The big difference is upgrade cycle. A computer gets updated less often, so it makes sense to not change the name every year. An iPhone,on the other hand, gets changed out every one or two years, so I can see why they need new names each year, and new numbers every two.
