    For every new product that Apple has introduced in the last 3 years, has there ever been TOTAL secrecy, with no leaks? I don't know, but I am getting a bad feeling that we are going to be let down with just a spec bump.

    Only case designs for the iPad 2 leaked, and considering the iPhone 4 fiasco its not outside the realm of probability that Apple cracked the ******* down this time around.

    The iPad 2, I'm pretty sure we only had case leaks for that as well. That said, I think you're in for a disappointment as well.

    If we're only going back 3 years, then the iPad 2 and Apple TV 2

    In a very similar manner to the iPhone 5, which keeps my hope alive:)

    None of those were leaks, all mockups - the same as we've seen for the "iPhone 5".

    I hope there is an iPhone 5, a "4S" will be disappointing. Hopefully they are just being incredibly secret about it and will make us all giddy when they say "oh, and one more thing"

    Actually, does 9to5mac getting the white bezel count as a leak?

    Touché. More of a leak than we've seen for the "iPhone 5".

    Apple have had full control of all information from day 1. They are very very very good at manipulating the media and Internet. Everything you've seen online is intentional. Everything you haven't seen online is intentional. I have attended entire seminars based on Apples marketing strategy. Everything is controlled by them in some way with regards to hype. People queue on release day because they've been manipulated into doing so by the hype that is driven by the Apple marketing machine.
