This thread is meant to be a discussion on what the next iPhone might be. I have looked at some of the rumors out there; they seem to focus on the belief, or hope, that the next iPhone will have an even larger screen then the iPhone 5, may be available in several colors, and even more options for screen size. And rumors contained speculations of the next iPhone being called the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 5s. Based off of the pattern I have seen from Apple I think it will be called the iPhone 5s. There was the iPhone, then the iPhone 3G, then the iPhone 3Gs, the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4s, and finally the iPhone 5; 3G, 3Gs, 4, 4s, and now 5... It simply makes sense. If they weren't going to stick to the pattern, why wouldn't they have called the iPhone 5 the iPhone 6, being that it is the 6th generation iPhone? Another thing that would follow the pattern Apple has set so far, would be to increase the power and performance for the next iPhone while keeping the same look as the iPhone 5. Comparing the iPhones they have available now, you can see that the 4 has an A4 chip, the 4s has an A5 chip, and the 5 has an A6 chip (The new iPad had an A5x, and now the newest iPad has an A6x). Based on all this evidence. I think they will come out with the iPhone 5s when they figure out the new technology they need to make the expected upgrade; as far as the chip goes, once they have the A7 and A7x ready. (http://www.apple.com/iphone/compare-iphones/) I think the iPhone 5s (name is an assumption) will have the A7 chip, which, as far as we know, doesn't yet exist. Now for the RAM: the original iPhone the 3G both had 128MB , the 3Gs doubled that to 256MB, the 4 double again, to 512MB, the 4s stayed the same as the 4, and the 5 doubled to 1GB (1024MB). So, I think upgrading the RAM depends on two things: what the competition looks like, and if they can fit more in that slim phone. According to the pattern, again, the battery life is likely to drop a little. And, finally, according to both the pattern and what Apple has said time and time again; what they have said about every single phone they have made, the phone is likely to be available with one screen size. Apple has said that they specifically made the iPhone with this width because it is comfortable and usable with one hand. This is a major selling point every single time. They are likely to never make the screen wider. And, being that 16:9 is such a popular ratio, they will likely stick with this exact screen size right up until the last iPhone ever made. Now that is my take. And as far as what I hope for, I like the iPhone 5 the way it is. More power is always a very welcome thing, so I like the direction they seem to be going; I like the new 16:9 ratio and, in fact, had hoped for a smart phone with this ratio for a long time. So, what are your takes, hopes, and theories?
