You could also get off your high horse and quit telling people what they should and should not talk about.
Then, I would have to get off my high horse and quit telling you to get off your high horse.
Of course, by now the horses are so high we'll get hurt just trying to dismount, so I'll stay atop my perch up here.

That was a coincidence. Now there are two phones with the number 4 in them.

iPhone 4 is the only model that had a number referring to its generation version. The first iPhone was called simply "iPhone" and did not have 3G data capability. This was before 3G really started taking off in mid/late 2007 and 2008. Next came the redesigned iPhone 3G. This one had 3G data capability, so they stuck the 3G suffix on there. The 3rd generation iPhone in 2009 had redesigned internals with lots more features, but retained the same exterior design, and so it was called the 3G[S]. 2010 saw the 4th version of the iPhone, but only the 3rd exterior design. This 4th generation was named simply "iPhone 4".
This caused some confusion because some people thought it might have 4G data capability. Others mistakenly call it "4G" simply because it's the 4th generation, and "G" is often used as an abbreviation for "generation". So this current version is the 5th generation iPhone, but it retains the same exterior design, and as such is called the 4S. So yes, next year's model will be the 6th generation and could very well be called the iPhone 6. But who really knows what it will be called.
I think part of the confusion comes from the data speed labels. 3G data is supposed to be the "3rd generation" of cellular data transmission rates. And because Apple put that data transmission label as part of the iPhone name for 2 years, it now causes confusion for subsequent years that aren't using any data transmission rate labels as part of the phone's name.

Jobs is going to be like 2pac, every few years Apple is going to release something Jobs was "intimately involved" with.

Why all the rumors? Not even a week passes after the new iPhone was released out into the wild, and now we have rumors

Sorry but why is Steve jobs getting credit for the iPhone exactly? Wasn't it john ives and the other guy that is boss of ios development who are the driving forces behind the iphone. and ipods?

The only things I was certain about with this latest release was that it would be called the iPhone 5 and there would be no 64Gb version.
On that note, I predict the next release will be called the iPhone 42He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I'd be willing to put a lot of money on them calling it the iPhone 5. Will necro this thread when its released.

It doesn't take half a brain to- call oneself an analyst- talk about the next iPhone- mention steve jobsAnd bam! You have "fool-proof" rumor

People are just saying that it will not be iPhone 5. They did skip a number 2. There was no iphone 2. the iPhone 3G was because it had 3G data. Then they added the S, which said to stand for speed. The 4 because of the generation.You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
