Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part, but I can't help thinking back to what Tim Cook said recently about increasing security around new products and wondering whether we're being fooled. The comments were, I think, made after some parts were leaked, but even so I am sceptical that all the iPhone leaks are genuine. Maybe the comments were made in response to those earlier leaks, but continued "sources" are still saying things that don't fit with Apple's desire for secrecy. If anyone can keep a tight rein on info leaking out, Apple can. Either they've failed to do what they wanted or else the current leaks etc are just a cunning plan to divert attention from their real plans (or are just fakes). Apple are responding to the thirst for information that they've set up an elaborate ploy to keep us and their competitors guessing. I guess I just can't see them setting themselves up for a fall by saying that they were increasing security and then releasing a phone that matches part leaks that were public 6+ months previously. While the part leaks could be genuine, some reports that the phone is only just starting production are rather inconsistent with them being so. Would such parts really be escaping Apple's tight security so early? The new phone - if that's what it is - does look pretty good with the gunmetal sides and drilled holes at the bottom, but I can't help thinking - like others - that its not really the upgrade we'd expect. After 2+ years, I'm ready for a change but if the pictures we're seeing are real, I'll probably look at a 4S unless other improvements make a compelling upgrade.
