If Apple say stick to a October launch for Ipad anybody worried they may have to push the Iphone 5S back forward to give some time between launches?

No there going with a yearly cycle, everything will start to be launched/reupdated every October

Don't be worried to much because the iPhone 6 comes after the iPhone 5S.

LOL people are taking this way to seriously...

With the new 4th gen iPad just announced it would seem more likely that the iPhone be updated more regularly, maybe every 6 months. Am I worried? No. Is it likely? Who knows. Competition is so far behind they have no reason to worry about refresh cycles right now.

I doubt it. If so they would have called it "the new iPhone."

The fact that they're still numbering iPhones leads me to believe that they won't be doing quick 'soft' updates with it like they are with the numberless "new iPad" (whose name does not need to change even when it does).

Ugh. Yeah! I'm so worried. I just got my iPhone 5 a few weeks ago. Having the 5S in June would be torture!

Everyone should know Apple had to update the iPad due to the lightning connector. The iPhone & iPod line up converted, leaving the iPad as the only remaining iDevice still using the "outdated" 30-pin.

This connector is a major shift for Apple and to rip the band-aid off so to speak, they had to do this. Now the entire Apple iOS family has a standard connector.

Obviously, updating just the connector would be embarrassing, so they also threw in the latest chip specs too.

Do not expect these mid-year cycle updates to become common place.

I for one am glad to see Apple jump head first into making the lightning connector conversion a rapid reality. I'm not a big fan of having multiple charging cables laying around for different devices.

Nope... I rather hope it is... I'm going to have to skip the next upgrade so the sooner it is out the better.

Nope, I'll wait for the 6 in a couple years and use my upgrade. I can't possibly imagine any new technology that will force me to get the S.

I expect it. Why any 5 owner (including myself) would care, though, is beyond me.

Of course, I get to upgrade every year since my wife and I have staggered upgrades, but even if they announced a 5S in March, it really wouldn't bother me. I'd just probably wait for the 6 at that point.

Worry? That would be great news!

I hope it is wider!

I think you are guessing just like everyone else. Steve is gone now and Apple CAN change their sales strategy and it looks like they have.
