Icons incorrect

Only thing that lets these renderings down is that the icons on the larger phones wouldn't simply get bigger, there would be more of them - as happened from 3GS to 4.

Some of us aren't:

- women with giant $1000 suitcase purses
- farmers with that big front overalls pocket
- hip hoppers with pants 10 sizes too big
- kangaroos

Apple please make a phone I can fit in my normal sized 'white guy with no rhythm' pockets!

They look amazing and definitely in the style of Apple, an understandable evolution. I LOVE that edge to edge display...I really want a bigger iPhone.

Looks good, but I think the camera and flash should be just a little more to the left

At glance seems like Samsung-ish... Hmm.. hopefully bigger screen can provide unique benefit instead of bigger fonts and view only...

Unless you're the "white guy with no rythm" with "Skinny white girl butt jeans" you shouldn't have a problem. I'm guessing you get your clothes in the woman's section? Maybe wears daisy dukes? Possibly "tiny girl hands?"

It looks more like a 5C and less like a 5s, why is the bezel so thick along the edges of the front? Thats a step back IMO. Design looks good, but the rendering makes me cringe

Actually, being EASIER TO SEE is the only good reason to make a phone any bigger.

Need real estate? Get iPad.

Whoever did these renderings forgot the Dual/True-Tone Flash next to the camera.

Neither will I, but for a right handed person it would actually be much better in the top left. Holding it in your right hand, you could easily slide your index finger up to click it.

Why have they reverted to single LED flash vs 2-tone flash?

actually, the power on/off button on the top left feels more natural using my left hand. less extending of the index finger to the right side.

One thing I was looking at in the rendering was the number of icons were the same on all devices.

The design is pristine. I think Apple finally got a good one.

Worlds better than the total ridiculousness of iPhone 4, 4S, 5 & 5s.

The 5c is a good design. This one looks even better.

I think my best estimate is the Iphone 6 with 4.7 will be about as big as the HTC One.
and the 6 with the 5.7 will be about as big as the note 2.

I See 3 Problems Here...

One, the camera. I don't believe there will (or should) be a protruding camera. Looks bad, and will feel bad, snagging on various things in close proximity.

Two... a 4.7" screen makes sense, a "phablet", doesn't. The former will begin to mildly cannibalize iPad minis... the latter will really take out a chunk of that market. (And both will put the Touch market further into decline already.) I'm not seeing much upside to this other than holding off Samsung, and for not much profit. Apple's not really known for playing defense, is it?

Three... whither the dual-led flash...?

I think that this looks like a possibility for the lower price model of iPhone rather than the top end.

No two tone flash - in 5S but not 5C
It doesn't look as if it could free stand either. So FaceTime can only be done with it held in your hand, on it's back or in a cradle/dock.

Or, of course, it could be just so much imagine-ware (most likely).

As usual we will have to wait for WWDC for the big reveal.
