The iPad Mini 2 will help. Many many people are waiting for a new retina display iPad mini to be released. The iPad is still, hands down, the best tablet on the market.

I think a delayed iPhone 5s will be good for them. But I still think they will release an updated 5. It's the iPhone 6 that will have the most changes.

It's been a pretty uninspiring year for all smartphone manufacturers, as none of them have that killer feature that sets them apart. We're entering a time where phones are advancing like the PC is.

The reason many people dont buy iphonw is because their screen is too small n their hardware are losing to competitors despite their high price. Apple do make a change

I aint a citbank analyst and I could hv predicted tht iphone 6 wouldn't launch this year.

this year is gona go to Samsung, HTC and Sony. Samsung coz of S4 htc coz of htc one and rumored M4 and Sony coz of first flagship xperia Z and second flagship if they announce thts abt it.

I can see many ppl at my work place don't hv iphone 5. most of them goin for Samsung note or waiting for s4.

im expecting the same. not a delay in the iphone 5s, but definitely not seeing the iphone 6 release this year.

like ive said many times before. if i was apple, i would skip the iphone 5s. I would go straight into that big leap of iphone 6 and release it sometime before summer of 2014, like it was before the iphone 4 white was delayed(years before the iphone 4 white color, the iphones were released around march) and now all iphones are released on sept/october.
