    I love the size of the 5s I currently own but am thinking about getting the 6.

    Do you guys think Apple will go back to a phone design that will be smaller than the 6?? Or are we living in a world where "bigger is better" and they'll stay the course of the smartphone world?

    I haven't held them so take this with a grain of salt but from what I've read, there's not much noticeable difference between the 5S and the 6. its just an extra 0.7 inches. you'll hardly notice it except that the screen will be a bit easier to read.


    now me, I ordered the 6 plus, but then I'm visually impaired. whatever pocket issues I run into will be preferable since I'll be able to use the phone much more easily now. no more squinting and straining my eyes and still often just having to give up and let Siri read to me, or use apples clunky zoom feature. (albeit that clunkiness is less so in iOS8)

    The phone's not even out yet. Wait until you see and feel the 6 in person.

    The iPod used to have three product lines, so maybe they will refresh the 4 inch iPhone next year, or they might not.

    I have no idea what plans or thoughts are going through their collective heads. Based on my cardboard cutouts, there isn't much size difference in the 5s and 6. Much less than I anticipated there being. I think we'll see them stay at 4.7 and 5.5 for at least one more cycle. Next year, we'll see if they keep the 5s and/or 5c (maybe updated with TouchID and A7 processor??) as lower cost options with the 4"screen or drop them completely. If the mix still skews greatly to the 4" screen, maybe they do something for the iPhone 7. Who knows. Also, if they find a way to cut down much of the bezel, we could potentially end up with a 4.7 that is nearly identical in size the the 5s. Who knows what the future holds.

    What ever Apple will do, it will sell. May not be the norm. but either way people out there may want something smaller.. But right now the "fad" is big devices........

    No. The majority of people want a big screen phone which is why Apple made two new models. Honestly 4.7" isn't THAT big....

    I just looked in my crystal ball and pulled out my tarot cards. The answer is no.

    Anything is possible, but not likely especially for 2014.

    Suspect the 6 is close enough to the 5s that they won't.

    Those who like the 4" size should get a 64GB 5s while they can...

    My opinion is big phones are here to stay for a long time. If anything I can see Apple keeping the same sizes but with less bezel in the future.

    I doubt it you will have to adjust to the bigger model.
