Like someone said earlier, lets just leave the naming to apple

iPhone 4S is the 5th iPhone so the 6th iPhone should be iPhone 5.

You guys are idiots who keep saying ppl are locked into a two year contract and won't be able to upgrade. I bought a 3G with the two year contract price, I sold that for $325. I took that money bought my iPhone 4 and made $125. Sold my iPhone 4 for $380 and upgraded to 4s for only $20. Which is much better than opting for the ****** $200 "upgrade" they offer you. I'll do the same when the 5 comes out but I'm sure I'll end up with some profit this time.

Usually I read the comments for entertainment. This rename game is lame yo.

The next two years will be sweet, Jobs was working on projects that'll be coming out for the next few years, so we know they'll be good!

sadly, its still just an iphone. bigger screen, better camera, faster. just like every year. nothing ground breaking. oh wait maybe if they add in removable storage then I'll bite. My iPhone 4 has been passed on to my Wife. I have a Galaxy S2 now.
Apple has lost its magic to me.
I hope they can prove me wrong.60% of the time, it works every time.

Most customers could care less, do any of you really think that a normal user is going to sit there and think "iPhone 5?? but it's the sixth one!" In fact, most people would sit there confusedly looking at an iPhone 6 sign thinking "But that makes no sense." These are normal people, not tech businessmen looking at all of the details that I for one couldn't care less about. I don't think anyone would even care enough to REALIZE that it was the sixth iPhone released...no one's counting.

Well i can say is i have upgrades for the last 3 yrs from 3G,iPhone4, and now 4S. Plus i have other 2 lines on my account that are available for upgrades LOL

Absolutely right! The fact is that actually the iPhone4 has been the only phone so far with the model number matching with the actual generation. From a marketing point of view it doesn't make sense to skip a number, that will just make it confusing. On the other hand, Apple needs to find a new naming convention sooner or later as from certain point the numbers loose the appeal and being out of sync with the iOS versions is not helping. If Apple sticks with the current concept we would see an iPhone 5 next year, iPhone 5S in 2013, iPhone 6 in 2014 and by that time we should already have iOS 8.

I've upgraded every iphone since day one, and had them all on release day. I take out 12 month contracts, so it's no skin off my nose. Yes, I may be a "fanboy", but i've had android phones and never will again.

does it really matter what it's called?
Seems like you kids are more concerned with what it's called instead of it's internal components.
Stop creamin' your pants over what its called and spend more time worrying about whether or not apple is goin to bend you over and eff you out of $700 again.
The transition from iphone 4 to 4s was so minuscule compared from a 3g to a 4. It was embarrassing on so many levels.
And if you're soo worried about what the next ones going to be called... do us all a favour and go play in rush hour traffic.
You annoying whinin' b!tches

if the iphone 5 dont have a bigger screen, i'll be waving bye bye to apple and the iphone. seeing the same screen size for 4 years. is to small for my liking.

Staying on topic.... with the rumor bs that got out of control with the 4S, I'll believe it when Apple unveils it. In one ear and out the other Gene. Sorry.
SN: Doesn't matter what the phone/tablet/laptop/desktop is called, your going to buy it. Shut your face!!!
