Anyone else think its more likely to see a 'lower cost' iPhone in June(ish) and the 5S in September(ish)? I cant imagine the 5 being Flagship for such a short time and I cant imagine ios7 being ready unless its a minor release.

I suspect the cheaper one will roll out first possibly with iOS 6.something followed by a later iPhone 5Swith iOS 7. They need to make the cheaper iPhone look cheaper and older so not to hurt the normal iPhone sales. If the cheaper is the newest product in the line up for the run up to christmas it might look a more attractive option?

Exactly. But one might also ask if every analyst's guess based on imagination/sources really needs to be distributed though (including this rumors site).

This is actually something that came up with the growing success of the iPhone. I can't remember an equal number of analysts predictions provided before that time. I understand the mechanism of the market, but the distribution of the predictions should also be handled on a more selective basis.

I am thinking there will be some announcements and iOS7 shown at the WWDC, maybe a bump in the MBA, or MBP but iPhone 5S not until Sept-Oct time frame, however I assume that is when iOS7 will be available to all. I wonder if iOS7 will support the 3GS, 4, 4S, my guess is no 3GS or 4 Support, but who knows.

I will be keeping my IP5 until 2014 when hopefully the bigger screened IP6 or whatever it will be called comes out. Tired of upgrading and wasting money every year and dealing with selling the old one on eBay, what a waste of time

If I'm make a prediction that Apple will release a watch sometimes before the end of the year and that this prediction is based on me guessing...

...does that make me an analyst? Will somebody pay me for this?

You have to hand it to the guy: he really gets paid!

iPhone rollouts are becoming mundane and uninspired, almost comical really.

Until Apple does a complete UI revamp of iOS or some stunning design changes then I don't see why people should get excited about an iPhone release these days, and I don't understand why people would stand in line to replace their iPhone 5 with 5s on the day its released. Why buy a phone where everything just works the same way as the last iPhone you owned?

I want Apple to be innovative and ahead of the curve again, but lately they are not even playing catch up anymore. They seem to be lost in their own little reality field, you know, the same way RIM was when the iPhone was first released, just before they lost most of their marketshare.

Inspiration through apathy. If all there is to look forward from Apple is a watch, then they lost everything they have gained over the last 5 years.
What kind of innovation for a smartphone do you expect these days?
There cannot be a revolution every 5 years. These days phones are getting faster and "better".
A smartwatch could be the next. Needed: Flex-display plus flex-battery.
But consumer technology is not that far yet.
Maybe (just maybe) it´s you lacking imagination.

How about fix iTunes 11. Fix Match. How about some real battery life so Im not spending 100$ on a ugly Mophie with every phone? Quick neutering OSX like iOS. How about I dont care about a watch. How about innovative value? This is retarded I know very few people who got a 5. I wont get another one [if I do] til 6.

All really stupid.

Wireless charging, good battery, NFC could be cool but I live fine without. Id also like to see my supposed LTE phone and iPad actually be on LTE and not 3G carriers... seriously [and I live in the middle of the westside of LA]. Were getting ripped off. Your favorite customer Apple 6-7 years ago is looking off into the Samsung horizon more and more
face the mirror...
