This deserves a meme. "Can't tell if joking or serious." New phone basically gets new insides and some other crap- erm hello, that's been the same thing since iPhone 2G and sgs1!!!

Considering the standard of all other major manufacturers are releasing, surely this is a time for Apple to break away from these set bi-yearly incremental updates.

The iPhone 5 is looking more and more like something from the ark.

Samsung has already made its marginal update a few days ago.

I saw this article title and my immediate reaction was, "Well duh..."

It's Apple people. They are the kings of marginal updates.

If the new iphone screen is below 5 inch, it not the phone for me. I've iphone 4 and iphone 4s and are collecting dust in my drawer as they are just too small to enjoy.

Apple can't make brand new designs every year people!
They're also human!

I've got the 4S and will not buy another iPhone until the screen size increases to Samsung 4 levels. I think Samsung are ahead at the moment, although I will say Apple have a more stable operating system but i understand that is not enough for many.
The iPhone 5 was not a big enough improvement over the 4S and I don't think the 5S will be either.

If these rumors are true, it looks like Apple is taking everything for granted. They're no longer leading in smartphones and tablets, yet they insist in that "beautifully built iCrap" approach. I believe they're in for a big surprise!...

Unless Apple decides to be more generous about file sharing like Android, that new iPhone won't even get a wink from me. Until then, Zieg Android!

Samsung goes very well and after the release of sgs4 it will go even better! hopefully for apple, the new iphone whether is called iphone5s or iphone6 should be a lot better than iphone5, otherwise apple will lose another fight!!!

Do we really need RUMOR in front of it? All iPhones are marginal upgrades of the predecessor. Improved processor and camera. That's it. LOL
