Apple needs to keep the secrets alive. I love the anticipation & announcement day. You need to something to look forward to in order to keep the spice of life going. Go Apple!

Why are we trusting VentureBeat? Their last rumor about Apple was a major FAIL.

got really excited.

until the very end of the article where it says that pretty much none of this is factual, and he is often wrong. lol

The 5/5S looks pretty blocky and dated next to the new shape.

The Beats lightning connector headphones are very interesting; glad to see those rumors keeping up. I do not expect it this soon however.

I do think it is clear that the next redesign of the iPhone (iPhone 7) will see the removal of the headphone jack. It will now be the thickest point on the device, and Apple doesn't like limitations like that.

So many rumours about a 4.7" iPhone and a 5.5" iPhone, but none seem to have a view on if there will be a 4" iPhone. Are the new sizes an addition or replacement? Apple have said in the past why they think 4" is optimal, so I hope they continue to have that as a size for the current model (as opposed to retaining it only in a 5C format).

Really to me it looks like Apple is going after the traditional Motorola design aesthetic. From the mid 1960s going forward. Motorola was of course copying the 1959s Braun German design aesthetic, and they were copying the Swiss from the 1920s. Ultimately Deco makes a comeback every 20 years, and here we are again.

Are you implying it's not incredible for this use?

I'm finally getting 100Mbps internet next week. If it can handle that, then that's all I care about as far as the radios go. I might finally buy an AC router though—mostly to have solid range across my house with beam-forming or whatever. The chips used in the iPhone for years also supported FM radio but were never used. Just because it has NFC in the package doesn't mean Apple has to use it.

2GHz A8? Holy cow. That's a lot of horsepower for a phone. Are they sure that's not for the next iPad? Seems like a high clock for a phone. If it's true then I guess the die shrink really helped. Now we just need 2GB of ram and we'll be set.

I've thought all along that the sapphire screen was going to be some type of composite or laminate. Everything I've read about sapphire is that it breaks easily, but is really scratch resistant. To get the best of both worlds you need a composite solution.

I think in the 7 revision this is likely.

I figure by 2016 there will be a better way to connect headphones to devices.

Honestly I could care less about sapphire display. I have never broken my screen or even scratched it so its a no factor for me. I would rather have any of the others suggested than sapphire glass.

That sounds nice,but how would I charge my phone and use my headphones at the same time?

Although,if they did do that I could see them making a lighting to headphone accessory for 29.99. That way others without beats could still use their standard headphones.

With the supply Apple is buying, this is unlikely.
