That pico-projector rumor if confirmed would make an upgrade quite tempting.

Wanna bet? I guarantee you they will release a larger screen iPhone. Maybe not the 5S, but definitely the 6.

Multiple Macbook Pro sizes -> Multiple iPad Sizes -> Multiple iPhone sizes.

Embrace the future.

Why not betting

I meant that they won't get the size any larger than that.If it become a phone like S3 size I would never ever buy it.They are trying to make people use more tablets that's why they have different sizes of Ipads and secondly they want to finish the netbooks also that why they have the smallest the biggest

So that's why I believe Apple wouldn't go to larger screen.They could do different sizes but not larger than this one.

Im on a 2 year contract but say double batterlife would make me consider an early upgrade, since i find the battery life to be a constant source of stress.

Besides that im happy with the phone. Dont need it to be faster, dont need a better camera, dont need a bigger display. All that can wait 2 years easy.

bigger screen, I'm not doing the 5 to 5s like I did the 4 to 4s because it was just pointless

A tablet does not replace a phone with a larger screen. Theres a big difference between a tablet and a phone. A tablet doesn't fit in your pocket, a phone does.

Bigger screen please with sugar on top. Or improve screen readability in direct sunlight. But if performance can be doubled I will still bite.

Not all of us think that way. I think about the same like you do but a lot of my friends use Iphone and Ipad Mını and they have laptops.The ınteresting thing is I was saying the same thing like I am good with Iphone and Mac but 2 days ago I saw Ipad Mını , and bought one.I have Iphone-Ipad-Mac. But if the size of the Iphone gets bıgger I would asked myseldf should I buy it or no ? But this time I didnt beacuse there was a big difference.That's why ıf Apple makes the screen size bigger on Iphone , why whoul you buy and Ipad or Ipad Mini ? Got my point ??

I like to be able to put my phone in my jeans pocket. If Apple make the iPhone screen too big it's not the iPad I wouldn't buy...

for 99% people up here, the only feature the new phone would have to have for them to buy it, is a big shiny apple logo.

Obviously not bigger than your pocket. But a 5 inch screen is still perfectly pocketable.

I think the answer is that not everyone wants an iPad mini. Those that don't want to buy three separate device will look elsewhere if Apple doesn't provide an incentive to keep buying Apple.

FALSE. Anyone on Verizon that has a smartphone and has LTE i.e. ANDROID can do this...It's Apples hardware limitations not Verizon's LTE.

I know...I had a Thunderbolt since they were released. But since we are talking about the iPhone 5, and my carrier is Verizon, I simply meant that the Verizon iPhone 5 can't do simultaneous talk and data, unlike other carriers. I don't give a rat's ass whose fault it is. If the next VERIZON iPhone has simultaneous talk/data, that's all it would take for me to sell my 5 and upgrade.

Hope that's clear enough now.

Larger screen, (not just taller, but wider as well), and NFC capabilities.

a little bigger screen (4.3"-4.7")

problemless wifi

better battery life

faster processor(although the i5 is fast!)

better multi-tasking (split-screen)

app killer (hate the double touch home screen crap)

updated siri (app intergrated)

I wouldnt mind a notification light like other smart phones have
im sure there is more....
