    I can't believe they are calling it the iPhone 5. It's because all the people on the Internet were calling it the iPhone 5. It doesn't make any sense. It's the 6th iPhone not the 5th.

    But all those "Brainiacs" insisted that there was no way it would be called the "iPhone 5".

    *** {Said in the most over the top, stereotypical nerd voice}

    "Everyone knows that the gravity of the galactic center of Photon-Xterianto929158 is far less than on Photon-Yestero45362. Geesh Guys." Snort Snort Snort ***

    Thats how I perceived it every time I had to read that there was no way that Apple would call it the iPhone 5.

    "Itsch the sixtch generatchion. Only a moron woldch callch itch an iPhone fivech". Snort Snort Snort

    There is still a chance its not called the iPhone 5. But I dont care. I also dont care what they call it. I just find it funny when "brainiacs" think they know everything.

    They're not calling it the 5th iPhone. Just calling it iPhone 5. I really don't see the issue, the iPhone 4 was the only iPhone to have its name coincide with the nth model.

    Its been fairly clear Apples intentions are to do full number increments to the name every two models.
    Next year expect iPhone 5S, in 2014 expect iPhone 6 yet it will be the 8th model. It's not that hard to understand or make sense of.
    If you really want, just think of the iPhone 4S, as iPhone 4.5. Cos at the end of the day that's all it was, I slight improvement to the iPhone 4

    Why get butthurt over a name? Assassins Creed 3 isn't the third game in the series, you don't see people having freak outs over that.

    If you go by the model numbers then Apple considers it the 5th iPhone. By their thinking basically the first iPhone and the iPhone 3G were pretty much the same, at least internally (with the obvious exception of it being 3G capable).

    iPhone 1,1 iPhone 2G
    iPhone 1,2 iPhone 3G
    iPhone 2,1 iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 3,1 iPhone 4
    iPhone 4,1 iPhone 4S

    Grow up. Until its name is officially released, of course people will refer to it as iPhone 6 as it will be the 6th iPhone.

    I give it a month. They have a jailbreak for the beta version of ios 6 I believe. Apple will most likely patch it right at the last minute before they ship it.

    It's been fairly clear? Why didn't the original iPhone have an S model? What happened to the iPhone 2 and iPhone 2S? And what are with the random G's in iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS?

    The only thing that is fairly clear is Apple doesn't know what the hell to call their products any more. iPad coming before and after iPad 2 is proof enough of that.

    No, you get some intelligence. There's a difference between "iPhone 6" and "6th iPhone". Herp Derp.
