Talk about sacrificing practicality over a sleek design.. Laying this on every surface will be a pain.

That's how the iPod Touch 5 has been for years. It's not too bad once you get used to it.

Maybe it is actually the iPod Touch 6 that we have been asking for .

They just don't sound right, but its time to ditch the numbering, the iPad just did it last year, so this might end up happening.
The iPad didn't just do it last year. Ever hear of the iPad with retina display, or the new iPad? It's 100% about marketing and what Apple believes will be the best marketing for the device. I'll let you guess why the iPad Air is called the iPad Air. Just kidding I'll tell you: they wanted to market the fact that it was much lighter and physically smaller in every dimension.

I think it's a great idea to alienate everyone that wants the 4.7" by making the 5.5" better specs. Oh wait.

So you think the 0.8" screen size increase justifies the extra $100 people will be paying? I don't.

They should use the extra space for battery. A protruding camera is just hamfisted.

The bands as depicted are horrible. Either they're not real, or they look a lot better in person.
Hahaha I did the exact same thing with mine until I broke it, and consequently broke my habit of pushing it. It was an awful idea, and it's only use has been people pushing the button for fun.

Those people getting the 4.7" iPhone will be paying $100 less. Doesn't that count for something?

The protruding camera on the iPod touch 5th gen. isn't that bad but this one seems to stick out a lot farther and that might not be good.

I think they'll name them:
iPhone 6 not that great (for the 4.7" version)
iPhone 6 way better pro version (for the 5.5")

That way they alienate all the customers purchasing the 4.7".

Well, it better be a bad ass camera, cause that looks ugly as hell. Anyway, it's kinda a perspective thing. When the iPhone 4 leaked everyone said it was ugly. The same with the 2 materials back of the iPhone 5/5S. We'll get over it (I hope).

Well, if you want to believe this rumor, there's either a 5.5" part leak clearly pictured there or the 4.7" will have a protruding lens.

And note this:
First tangible "New Mac Pro" rumor June 5, 2013: http://www.macrumors.com/2013/06/05/...r-new-mac-pro/

First time the public got to see one June 10, 2013: http://www.macrumors.com/2013/06/10/...ation-mac-pro/

That's 5 days between tangible rumor and reveal for a completely new design that looks nothing at all like it's predecessor. Apple couldn't possibly do something like that with a 5.5" iPhone, which is primarily (visually) differentiated by a screen that is less than 1" bigger diagonally.

Apple wouldn't light that logo in a trillion years, it's an absolutely terrible idea. It's likely cutout, and possibly Liquidmetal for some sort of antenna or signal to pass through, and I think Liquidmetal may be the best material for that.

It seems like they are toying with liquid metal, trying it out on these little parts before going full fledge.

It counts for nothing. People want the best specs, hence why the newest iPhone always tends to outsell the older models. If no one cared about specs, they'd buy the older model which is... you guessed it, $100 cheaper.

Still not digging those antenna-lines.

Would love to have it look like this below (via nowhereelse.fr):

Well I can't be bothered to get worked up over parts leaks. If the final design for sale has a big ugly protruding camera for no other reason than Apple being obsessed with thin then maybe I'll care.
