    I hope they do better that would be awesome , they don't really update iPad airs yearly this took 2 or 3 years until they updated it
    They have updated the chip in the ipad every year, except last year the iPad got same chip as iPhone. Usually iPad always gets boosted GPU

    Sometimes I feel like Apple intentionally left the 6 and 6 Plus with 1 gb RAM so they could use 2 gb as a major selling point for the 6s and 6s Plus.

    Yeah, except I have never heard Apple tout RAM at all.

    They should refresh the naming cycle next year and use iPhone (The 4.7"), iPhone Plus (5.5") and iPhone Petite (4"). Each of them have the same CPU/GPU, RAM and CAMERA, but differ in weight and battery sizes.

    Upgrade wise I'd like to see them slim the top and bottom bezels of the device which shouldn't be that difficult to attain. Perhaps increase the thickness of the device and get rid of that camera bump which (I Imagine) should also help with any "Bending" issues.
    More RAM and better internals are a given, but I think the current iPhone's are pretty well equipped and I'd rather see them focus on improving usability through design rather than focus on hardware improvements.

    Price and product line-up wise I think both the iPhone and iPhone Petite would be $199 and the iPhone Plus would continue to be $299. I'd drop all the older devices minus the iPhone 5S and sell that for free with a two-year contract.

    I'd be happier if they had an iPhone Pro (5.5") iPhone Air (4.7") and iPhone Mini (4")

    That way, the naming would be similar to other Apple product lines, like the iPad and MacBook.

    Just because they do not tout it, doesn't mean they won't include it. Apple also doesn't tout the battery, among other things in their devices.

    Wont happen. Like with this year and the iPads, apple clearly wants to differentiate their products, so see the 5.5" continue to have a higher res screen, and camera, maybe even ram.

    6s+, 6s, 5s with no refresh is my guess

    It's a good guess though. If they don't offer a C version, we'll know that experiment didn't go so well for them. This keeps things simple. And the 299/199/99 thing going. One could argue about a free version, but discounts should provide that and a 4" version would still be enough in demand to keep the 5S at the same tier.

    Yes, this forum is actually called iphone 7..a 2016 product..lol Although it's almost against the law on here to talk about products that long away (or at least it is in Sep/Oct), you know we'll see a 7 plus and 7. Perhaps 5S too? Or maybe Apple does a iphone 7 that's a 4" version to take up the 99.00 tier and drops the older 5 & 6 series altogether.

    I would say the iPhone 6 plus and 6 would get a refresh, but with an added 5s refresh added to the portfolio next year....

    Predict the next lineup here! Hope to see some interesting replies.
    2015 -> iPhone 5s (will not be refreshed), iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s plus. End of line for iPhone 5c and 32 bit devices.
    2016 -> iPhone 7 in 4", 4.7", and 5.5-6" sizes.

    They haven't touted the actual numerical amount of RAM in an iPhone. But (and I may be wrong) I believe when the 3GS was announced Apple made a point that the "S" was for speed and had double the RAM and CPU speed compared to the iPhone 3G. That is the only time I think they have ever mentioned it at all.

    If they offer a 4" screen iPhone at all next year, they will want it to have NFC/Pay capabilities. So it will either be an upgraded (refreshed) 5s or a totally new iP 6s mini. Or whatever they might call the 4" version of the iP 6s. Why would they wait until 2016? They're pushing Pay pretty hard.

    This wouldn't be a sound business decision


    If there gonna update the 4" form factor they will not wait two cycles to do it. Customers that held off from upgrading will be chomping at the bit for a new device next fall and will end up making some type of compromise before the 2016 line up

    I dont think it will be next year, but I have a hunch that they will change the name when they reach iphone 7. I dont know why. It just seems like 6 iterations of a product is enough. 7 seems like the technology is outdated, or something.

    What do you all think? will there be an iphone 7, or will they switch to something else?

    6s Plus and 6s with 2 gb RAM. A 4"screen 6s mini with 1 gb RAM. More camera improvements. We say goodbye to the 4s and 5c in the US Market.

    Hadn't considered apple pay mainly because I don't use it. You're probably correct they would update it in 2015 for a 4" version.

    How does that bother you? There were plenty of prerelease complaints and negative comments about the protruding camera. But it appears most no longer see it as an issue. Many put a case on that levels it. So I'm curious why it's still an issue with you. I don't have one of the 6 phones yet.

    Imagine if they did 6s, 6s+ and 6c. The 6c not an older handicapped device but the same design, same internals except with a 4" screen. It's not something that sounds like what Apple would do but damn it would hit the sweet spot for every size. I know that it is pretty damn close to the 4.7" so like I said it's not something Apple would be known for doing.

    I don't think that they would lose any sales. Most high end phones have moved away from the 4 inch market.
