I'm going to guess that the 6 debuts with iOS 8 and that both device and OS are some type of big leap forward because iOS7 looks pretty but is not mind blowing and the 5S will be better but again - not mind blowing. Better luck for 2014. :apple:

5S - Better camera, faster processor. Possibly a useless fingerprint scanner.
6 - Same as above with a bigger screen/different screen size options.

Fingerprint scanner, iOS keychain, and fingerprint functions for developers

These features would:

  1. eliminate the long alphanumeric passwords currently required by government and corporate networks;

  2. provide secure authentication for mobile payments, including purchases from the Apple Store, as well as wireless payments made to vendors using near field communication or Bluetooth;

  3. simplify web login/password entry for the web, whereby a fingerprint scan would populate the user's login/password and personal information from a secure password store (IOS Keychain) in Safari;

  4. eliminate login/password entry for third-party iOS7 applications (e.g., your bank's IOS app), by allowing third-party developers to substitute fingerprints for passwords;

  5. provide seamless multi-user support, which would benefit home users, as well as corporations and governments, that share one device (e.g., iPad, future Macbooks) among multiple users.

Well when you put it like that it doesn't sound so useless.
