    DigiTimes claims that Pegatron Technology has received orders for 15 million iPhone 5s from Apple and is set to start shipping in September 2011.
    DigiTimes is a frequent source for production and order rumors from Apple. They had previously predicted that Pegatron received an order for CDMA iPhone 4s for the fourth quarter of 2010. The actual Verizon (CDMA) iPhone was announced in January of 2011 and shipped the following month.

    I find it very hard to complain about the current design :D
    It's amazing.

    Isn't the AT&T/GSM one technically a world phone? :confused:

    Hmmm... Yip I might be doing the same. I could do with a change though since I've had this same design since the 3G came out.

    yeah, for the first time i dont think i'll be upgrading. iphone 4 is great, i dont see what they could improve worthy of the hassle of upgrading (and make no mistake, the hassle of all that contract business is a road block for some users)

    "does not seem..."?

    Doubtful they'd put out a big fat important-sounding "5" device number without some significant change.

    Otherwise it would be a "4"....

    Here's a novel idea...everybody wait till September before blowing your horn in outrage. sheesh

    Why waste all that time?
    You could probably sell your 3GS and your iPhone 5 for enough money for the iPhone 6

    Android is cheap plastic crap with horrible battery life junk. I would take a 3GS over any Android phone.

    That will be the day I switch from iPhones forever. 3D is a headache inducing gimmick.

    A few minor redesigns and a hardware spec bump is about what I expected.
    It's not like there's likely to be a radical redesign every generation.

    I agree about the design. I would actually be disappointed if they changed the look of the phone. IMO the best looking iPhone of the bunch.

    That being said, these coming months of rumors should be a blast. But, I'm still going to take everything with a grain of salt until I see Steve showing it off.

    Now, cue the arguments of what the actual name of the phone will be. I vote for iPhone 4GS°.

    Glad I signed up for a 24 month contract. Meant I got the phone cheaper, and with nothing to upgrade to glad it paid off.

    The iPhone 4 isn't even 4G yet. The update could be just that.

    My prediction:

    Same screen as iPhone 4
    Extremely similar body style
    A5 like the iPad 2
    Upgraded camera
    Universal Qualcomm radio across all models, Verizon model may not have SIM slot though
    Capacity bump to 64 GB
    Black and white from launch

    Wow you must treat it good! I went through 2 original iPhones, which both gave up the ghost. Still got them lying around somewhere...
