    When they use the term 4.7" do they mean just height increase? Surely they'll keep the aspect ratio the same by widening it too, right?
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    It's great that Apple are keeping themselves in the phone frame by making one with a modern-size screen - but it makes you wonder just how many trillions Apple has lost in waiting so long to do this ... whether out of respect for the late Mr. Jobs or not.
    Now that Apple's out of mourning and the gloves are off, it'll be interesting to see what else they can bring to the table.
    Welcome to 2014, Apple!

    Oh, and I think Apple should really be charging more for the iPhone Air.
    It would give all the whingers on this thread something to REALLY complain about.
    Hehe.

    No-one's forcing you to buy one.
    If you think it's so unfair, ask yourself this - does it make more sense for Apple to price to their business model or to the whingeing of those who want a cheap phone ?
    Apple is aimed at a premium demographic - and going downmarket would be suicide for the brand.

    Quality and image are an integral part of Apple's brand image and appeal.
    So rather than hating on Apple for sticking to their business model, why not man up and keep feeding your piggy-bank until you CAN afford an i-6 ?

    Agreed. iOS has outgrown 16gb. The phone is pretty much useless. It's like have a Ferrari and only giving you 1 mile of road to drive it. I've had 64gb since it was available, and I need more elbow room.

    Lol. Loved it. If the iPhone is too expensive for people, maybe they shouldn't be buying iPhones. I've never thought about the price honestly, and I'm not exactly rich. I just have no problem paying for a premium product.

    Not if you keep everything in cloud including your music. With iTunes Match I have more than enough room on a 16GB.. Don't need to have my entire music library LOADED on my phone.. Plays instantaneously from the cloud. I keep my favorite 100 on the phone for when I don't have internet access. Everything else I need for daily work/personal life is in cloud..
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!
