I am sure most of them knows this news...however would like to share with you'll that the APPLE is the most valuable company now...this proves that being in the industry for just 5 to 6 years the Apple has beat all the mobile manufacturers who was in the industry for so long.....

Take into account that Tim Cook isn't Steve Jobs which me... moreEXACTLY - I see the culture changing a lot at Apple in the coming years - like the rumors of Apple planing a smaller iPad, even though Jobs was against them. And Apple beginning to pay dividends to shareholders. That was not necessary - the shareholders have been "spoiled" in a way. Now that the investors have tasted dividend, the share price will be more sensitive to revenue/profit changes. You give it to them once, they will expect it more of the time. And when sales dip just a little, they panic, scared that it may affect their dividend prospects - SHAREPRICE CRASHES.
I also suspect that this new dock may affect iPad3 sales. Surely some buyers will hold off getting an iPad3 until they get the new dock? BIG PROBLEM considering iPad3 isn't even six months old yet.

And with Jobs gone....so far they are still up to same illegal games. Things haven't looked different yet

Take into account that Tim Cook isn't Steve Jobs which means there could be several changes in the way that Apple designs their products.
Apple isn´t the same without Steve Jobs at the helm.
Looks fake. i believe it will still be 3.5 inch. Stretching the screen will break alot of apps, i highly doubt apple will take that move. What makes the phone worth while is the large collection of apps.
The bump in the battery / and 4g at the cost of reducing the connector size and sim card size seems reasonable.
My guess of the new iphone would be:
slightly better processor / gpu
smaller & slimer (like ipod touch current gen)
longer battery life
32/64/128gb (maybe) - to complete in local storage
Spudly, 21 Aug 2012Far from me to defend Apple (far, far, far from it..) but at least they have had a standard do... moreExcept that they have introduced a new smaller one...
Just when all the HI-FI have the connections for the old standard one.
Will be called iphone 5, you don't get the Strategy behind the "the new..." names. They Renamed the iPad behause they want to Stress Out that it is a Post pc device and is Part of their mobile Computer product line-up. Like the nomenclature they use for MacBooks which also dont have any Numbers in their names (in commercials).
BurnyMatt, 21 Aug 2012LOL, fanboy. Read carefully: "which renders all my accessories with ipod docks useless&qu... moreCouldnt have said it better myself. Apple will make enormous profit from new accessories, especially knowing previous iPhone accesories wont work, unless PURCHASING either new accessories that will fit, or at worst case scenario an adapter to make the previous accessories fit the iPhone 5 port.
The rest of the phone manufacturers are smart enough to use MicroUSB, why can't Apple?
Ali, 21 Aug 2012Too fat and thick to be the real new iPhone How is this too big and thick to be the new iPhone? Look at the size comparison between the Samsung galaxy S1 and the Samsung Galaxy Note.. From what you would call back then to be a "small" size to the Note being a "very large" phone...
Far from me to defend Apple (far, far, far from it..) but at least they have had a standard dock connector through most of their iterations of the iPhone. In fact, in many ways it's one of the things that has contributed to the success of the iPhone, the huge range of peripherals. It's a pity that Google couldn't get together with Android manufacturers and come up with some sort of standard themselves. It's the one and only thing that I am slightly envious of.. but I'll get over it, and be happy with my vastly superior Android device..

Denzo, 21 Aug 2012Your leaving Apple, the best phone company in the world, because the dock changed and you'll h... moreLOL, fanboy. Read carefully: "which renders all my accessories with ipod docks useless"
Example: A car with built-in iPod cable and dock, desk clocks with ipod dock, speakers with built-in connector/docks, etc.
I don't think it will be a mere $10 cost. Since when were optional car accessories and fancy desk clocks $10? I don't think an adapter will work well with all the said accessories.
My 2 cents though, might be Apple and their 3rd-party product manufacturers' money-making ploy to have Apple fanboys, like yourself, buy all new accessories. Thus making one's you've already invested in almost useless.
Still one phone a year, still same design and still one phone fits all.
Other phones companies offers different phones for different needs. Most people gets Iphone because is fashion (like sell is body parts to pay for it) and most of this people don't use even 70% of its features.
Good luck apple addicts.
