    if yes, how large do you think it will be?

    seeing as all the ''S'' models are only internal upgrades

    4.5 or 4.7 (like HTC ONE ), for me the maximum will be the 4.7''

    It will definitely be larger, no clue as to how big. 5" Seems to be a good size for a smartphone these days.

    4 inch or 4.3 inch with same form factor. Apple will not go wider as Samsung and others. Tim Cook stated he wants a phone that can be held, and used with one hand, and for the masses. Not for the fanatics (kids) that want to use it as a main computer to play Games, YouTube, Movies type stuff. Samsung is your choice if you are a Movie/Game user. But we shall see won't we ? ;)

    I just want it big enough to nicely run iPad-style apps. I dont like the iPhone UI for a lot of my apps :[

    I agree but with the new swipe gesture to move between messages and emails it seems that a wider iphone will still be usable with 1 hand with this new feature.

    This makes no sense. Why would they change the aspect ratio again? That would make it even harder for the developers than a relatively simple resolution change with a bigger screen. Seems like no one understands why the iPhone 5 got taller (hint: 16:9 is a common, reasonable aspect ratio).

    Will this thread be the basis for the final decision? I think it will be 7.1.

    Hoping for 4.3" without increasing the width too much. I use my phone with 1 hand very often and the benefits of a larger screen don't outweigh the loss of my ability to use the device with ease with one hand

    Yeah I think something like 4.3 it makes a difference in a small package. I have both a s4 and iPhone 5. The s4 feels to big. Great phone but it feels like I have a pc in my pocket. Iphone 5 is just about right. Many friends of all ages says the same.

    Yeah, and I wish there was a way to have a bigger screen on my DS to play Nintendo-style games. Oh wait....

    larger screen

    I would like to think or dream that the iPhone 6 will have a larger screen but now I am not sure Apple is capable of developing one. They are on a backwards trend right now.

    Since Apple will not go wider and can't really go any higher, I would bet the screen will stay the same. They can't change the screen size every year after all.

    If the mini had native texting, I would be a happy camper.

    Who said Apple won't go wider? Just curious if you can share the source of this fact, as you state it.

    Because Apple is watching out for all the tiny handed people in the world.

    It's not a fact but a simple observation. However this may change just like they moved from 3.5 to 4, despite Steve's believe that 3.5 is the perfect size.

    Look what I found on the subject:

    He speaks of it but then again, we didn't need copy and paste when the iPhone came out and look what we have now.

    I understand the issue Cook has with the battery, but to say that any screen larger than the 4" elongated one that is in the 5, would automatically be darker and display colors poorly is hogwash - I guess I better get rid of all my HDTV's & iPads at home and link up a bunch of 3.5 retinas - It may look stupid, but the colors will be accurate.

    Did actually someone at Apple said that about copy-paste? I think this is rather the Apple strategy-not the first, but the best.

    not as their main phone, they won't make it bigger. and there's no point, really, in having two phones, one 4" and one 4.3". i think going 4" was apple's last card to play.

    No more than someone at Apple said that there will never be a wider screen. Tim Cook simply weighs pros and cons.

    If they don't go with at least a 4.7" screen a lot of people are going to be done with the iPhone including myself. The 5s will be the real deal breaker though if they don't increase screen size.
