But, but, Apple told us 3.5" was the perfect size. Then they said 4" is the perfect size screen

I don't even think Apple knows what the next iPhone is gonna be like this early in the game.

Who really thinks it's going to have a curved display?

Yeah. I still think the size of the iPhone 4 (while holding it in my hand) was PERFECT. I appreciate the larger 4" screen on the 5 and 5s, but it just doesn't rest in my hand as comfortably as the 4 did. I have to shift the phone in my hand to tap buttons in the top left corner of the screen and while it's not a deal breaker, I certainly loved the feeling of the iPhone 4.

That being said, I can't imagine an even LARGER phone in my hand. I think that'd be dreadful.

Then you don't have big hands. I have average hands and can easily operate it with one hand. My wife has small hands and has no issue operating with one hand.

Credibility of this roundup: 0... until they add "improved camera" to Specs.

This feels like when the national media started talking about the 2016 US Presidential election just a short while after the election in 2012.

If it comes with a screen the size of my nexus 4 I will think about returning, if it keeps the small screen and the feminine form factor of the 5S then I'll pass once again.

A wireless only device is a MAJOR PITA when it bricks.... and when you sell 10's of millions of iPhones, thats a lot of bricks.

Not to mention, a plug is just such a fast, simple, cheap and the most reliable option that removing it just wouldn't make sense.

The iPhone 5 is already pushing my pockets. If Apple creates a larger phone, they'll keep offering the current size as well. No doubt that some people want as large as possible, but at the same time, many of us want something comfortable to pocket. There should be at least two different devices, to satisfy both camps.

Change in resolution

For some reason, MR seems continually continually concerned about the fact that the iPhone 6 might require a resolution change, and that that could be as problematic as the iPhone 4s to iPhone 5 transition. I just don't see it. The reason the iPhone 4s to 5 transition was a bunch of work was because it was a change in screen aspect ratio not screen size. If Apple keeps the iPhone 6 at a 16:9 aspect ratio--and I haven't heard any contradictory rumors--then iPhone 5 apps will continue to run and look just fine. The only difference is that the iPhone5 apps might be ever so slightly fuzzier, but one of the benefits of a retina display is that that would be really very hard to notice.

My prediction is that Apple will likely follow the crowd to a 1080p screen, at either 469ppi (4.7" screen) or 400ppi (5.5" screen), or both.

I'd like a 4,5 or 4,7 inch display on the next iPhone. And I wish they keep the 16:9 aspect ratio.

Bigger (and lighter?) battery, thinnest form factor... And the A8 being twice as fast as A7 and being more energetically efficient.

Thats what I want from Apple.

And also a notification LED, but I know that's impossible with Apple.
Or any other kind of Notification (via iWatch, via Mac, via neuro-implant... whatever)

I think the same, I believe Apple is testing a lot of different prototypes right now. Very similar prototypes, though, with subtle different screen sizes.

If they really come out with an bigger iPhone screen - I hope they also make that same model with the current screen size. I get it that some people want/need bigger screens - but I don't want to have an oversized phone, I like the current size. It would be nice to have the choice (and one of the choices not being last years model)

How about giving users a choice? They're not going to shrink back to the pre-5 size, but offer the current one AND a larger one. I just had a Galaxy Note 3 for a few weeks and it was so great! Big screen and still fit in my pocket. Could pair with BT keyboard and mouse to act as a tiny laptop! My 5s seems so tiny now.

I agree with everything that you just stated.

Look at the iPad Air...the processor is more efficient, but they used that to shrink the battery and reduce weight rather than increase the battery life.

stop making things thinner, bigger, or faster.. Let's make the iPhone battery last 1 full day with lots of usage.

Based on the innovation of recent apple releases, this one might be called the "iPhone 5S S"

I think iOS 7 is insufferable.
