    Default Analyst Predictions for the Future of the Apple Product Pipeline


    In a research note which was recently issued to investors, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster predicts that Apple may scale back iOS 7 on a rumored low-cost iPhone, possibly withholding the feature set by deactivating Siri on the device. Munster took the chance to update investors on his Apple product pipeline predictions for the rest of the year and into 2014.

    The analyst’s expectations for the next-generation iPhone that many have dubbed as the “iPhone 5S,” seem to be in line with several rumors and speculations that are afloat. Aside from incorporating a fingerprint sensor into the home button, which Munster believes will be limited to user authentication, the 5S will feature the usual “S-series” component upgrades including processor performance, extended battery life, more memory along with a few other specification improvements.

    Although his outlook on the iPhone 5S are in line with the anticipated rumors, Munster’s thoughts on the rumored less-expensive “iPhone 5C” are a bit unconventional. Like others, he predicts that the iPhone 5C will have a plastic casing, 4-inch display and slightly lower-end internal components when compared to the iPhone 5S. However, the analyst believes that Apple will exclude software features when the handset launches, with Siri being one of the exclusions. He continues to state that the low-end handset offering is a move that “makes sense” for the company with the contingency that the company discontinues the iPhone 4S product line to change the pipeline.

    Last but not least, Munster agrees with the September iPhone event rumor and sees October as a likely timeframe for both the iPhones along with a new iPad and iPad mini. He continues on further to mention that Apple might debut a new TV product before the end of 2013 as well with the rumors of a larger-screened iPhone and the much-rumored “iWatch” to be released by mid-2014.

    We’ll have to see how much of this speculation turns out to be true and how much it remains a rumor in time.

    Lots of people use siri. Especially when you're driving. If you haven't noticed... every other brand has come up with a voice assistant after apple.

    I honestly think Siri is completely useless and overrated. It just never works properly.

    This dood's "predictions" have been what's been speculated by anyone that's been paying attention to Apple Inc. this past year. Sh*t, in the course of the last few months, the local newspaper has covered nearly everything Nostradumbass has mentioned here.

    Apple should just drop Siri and suck Google d*ck by replacing it with Google Voice Search (which actually works) systemwide. I like the idea of an i-5Cheap, but not as much as the idea of an i-5inchScreen. The other useful thing to come of this article is the update on the iMini release date ... DESPERATELY hoping they'll release a mesmerising hi-res update .

    If Siri is excluded from the so-called 5C then people will have to buy the 5S for that feature. Pretty simple

    That would be like Porsche announcing that the new 911-C will be just £10,000 - but for £50,000 you can have one with a digger-arm on the front.
    LOL

    I rarely use Siri as she does more harm than good. Sure while im driving i've used Siri but failed miserably. She always adds a word or like spell check inserts something different. Then I have to pull over and just type it anyway. Other devices added voice assistant to compete not because its used. I can count on both hands how many times i've used it and not go over. Great idea but still needs work.

    I have a hard time believing they would cut out Siri... they have Siri on the latest iPod touch for Christ's sake. Is this new C device really going to be that slow?!

    Why not evict Siri that was the main reason everyone got the 4s. Why couldn't they do it again with this phone

    Apple WEREN'T the first. Google(Android) had their voice assistant before Siri came out AND Siri WASN'T Apples idea. Siri was made by someone else and Apple brought the company and killed off the Siri app which worked on ALL iPhones. It even worked on the iPhone 1.

    And I had Siri on my iPhone 4 and used it all the time. It was great in the car. Now I got an S4 and still using the Voice Assistant all the time. Its even better now as I can turn things on and off just by speaking. I've never touched the phone when an alarm goes off, I just say "Stop" and the alarm stops. Something Siri doesn't do and should as its an awesome feature.

    So they are going to release an iPhone without Siri. So they are re-releasing the iPhone4. Tell me how thats a good idea?
    People dont want their devices limited thats why we need jailbreaking. To give the device features it should have. I've seen they are releasing features in IOS7 on the iPad4 but not in the iPad3. Now WHY are they doing that?

    I hope this analyst isn't a paid one, because all he's doing is regurgitating the same stuff we've been hearing for a while. And the last couple iPhones have had October releases, it shouldn't take an analyst to speculate what the sep 10 event will entail.

    Hey... at least we get updates without the need to buy a new item. It's rare that an android update comes out for older devices. I don't get why.

    really?

    apple did not invent Siri, it was an app in the app store before they bought it, pulled it and "revolutionized" it. AND Google has had a voice assistant application called ‘Voice Actions’ since August 2010.

    Google has been at it longer than apple, that's why Google Now is superior to siri, it also gives you information without you having to specifically ask for it. I'm sure you'll disagree but there are plenty, and I mean plenty of YouTube videos and blogs that support this.
