    very nice publicity stunt. he was not very involved with a phone that was just released after his death. but a lot more involved with a phone that wont be released for another year? makes perfect sense

    It would be called "4G" or "6" possibly. "iPhone XL" if they ever increase the screen size😉

    Giving it a name like XL for a larger screen size would circumvent the numbers game that has so many grown men fighting like children already. To be honest, the thing could be called the purple box that makes the interwebs work fast and people will STILL buy it. A rose by any other name...

    Next year, the iPhone won't be called the iPhone 5. It'll be called iPhone 6 or iPhone 4G. It's the 6th generation iPhone. Or it'll have 4G network and that's why it'll be called iPhone 4G.

    The iPhone 5 better be mind blowing out of this world device worthy of memory towards Steve Jobs. And please put Steve Job's name on it.

    I heard he was so far in advance with ideas and prototypes I heard well stop seeing/hearing his ideas for seven years. (don't quote me)

    His "theory" is spot-on. The iPhone 3G would have been more appropriately named iPhone 2 and the 3GS should have been named iPhone 3. Instead, Apple capitalized on using 3G as a marketing ploy, kicking off the confusion.

    Gen 1 - iPhone
    Gen 2 - iPhone 3G
    Gen 3 - iPhone 3GS
    Gen 4 - iPhone 4
    Gen 5 - iPhone 4S

    I hope they just name it iPhone 6 and move on. An acquaintance still argues with me that there was an iPhone 2 thanks to the idiots that dubbed the original iPhone "iPhone 2G". If they call the next one iPhone 4G, I may just smack him when he revamps his argument to use 4G as proof that there was a 2G.

    Um, no.
    Um, yeah.

    iPhone 1 = iPhone 2G
    iPhone 2 = iPhone 3G
    iPhone 3 = iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 4 = iPhone 4
    iPhone 5 = iPhone 4S
    iPhone 6 = iPhone 5

    I think it'd be stupid to call it the iPhone 5, and I'd be surprised if that's what Apple calls it. I imagine it's what the journalists are calling it right now because everyone knows exactly what they're referring to.

    I love how so many people are SO positive the iPhone will be called a specific name. I guess everyone works for the iPhone team developing the iPhones. I mean how ELSE would you be so definite about the name?...incase you didn't realize by now, that's complete sarcasm. WHO CARES WHAT IT'LL BE CALLED!...5, 6, Xl, iPenis, it just doesn't matter! So get off your high horse and find another topic to ruin. Kids these days

    iPhone 5 makes the most sense. They've never named the phones after what generation they are. They only do that with iPods. Skipping a number would make everyone confused.
