If the display goes bigger, the screen resolution+screen technology (IGZO)+processor WILL HAVE TO be upped in addition to the expected "More Ram and Camera". If this happens.....its no longer gonna be iPhone 5S, its going to be iPhone 6. Correct me if I'm wrong.

It should have more and new features.
Also, it should be more stylish and more colors to choose from.
And most of all, it is worth the cash.

This should have been released by now.
Instead delays, delays and more delays.

Why bother seriously? Anyone who buys iphones anymore is someone who is very unstable mentally. Sooooo many great phones out there nowadays anytime i see gsm write an iphone article i laugh it off as something comedial. Once apple was at the forefront of tech and design. Today not anymore.

Hey Apple, are you playing game with your loyal customers??????????????

Nowadays, almost all the flagship phones at least have 4.7" or above.

But you Apple still believe a smaller display is better.

Come on. Be a man, equip your iPhone 5S with 4.8" retina display!

Want 2 watch a movie-buy a tv
Want 2 play games on the go-buy a nintendo or psp
Want to listen to music-buy an mp3 player or walkman
Want to read a book-just grab one (its not so heavy)
but too bad everyone wants all in one device

So if they now make bigger screen its going to be longer and wider so the aspect ratio stays same, but i dont believe this 4.3" also i dont believe those news about delays. Same with every product from apple we have seen these news every time before every new products, and yet it never didnt happen.

These are again free advertising for apple, get to people talk about apple and their devices and oh boy they talk, it works everytime. This week for example in this site apple rumour news has got many comments just like always. You Hate Apple or love it but one thing is sure, people talk about apple a LOT.

So apple gets so much free advertising because all the haters. I mean without haters, would you guys think that these news would get much comments, no. But when haters comes, its like click, click, click, click...

He seems to be just trying to add things to the phone and os that, frankly, should have been put in there ages ago. Imo it's better than the old bluster that Apple used to put out about innovation etc whenever a handset or the OS was found to have quite blatant problems or things missed out.
Whether Apple are going about it in the right way or not is another matter. If they aren't careful they will end up with ios with an Android skin on top. I love Androids and Apple phones and I'm hoping that Apple give me a little more choice this time than the regurgitated mess (both phone and OS) that was passed of as the last 'NEW' iphone.
