    If S = Siri in 4S, will next iPhone be iPhone 5S? Obviously, Siri will not be a new feature next year.

    Guys this is not a dumb question 3G to 3GS was for Speed but 4 to 4S was for Siri.

    Did you even read the link which quoted Tim Cook from his All Things D interview?

    no no its not dumb. just the s always stands for speed, it was just a coincidence that voice recognition was called siri, worked out well for apple. they can say its both.

    I'm not sure why they're attacking you, but Tim Cook did say at the D10 Conference this year that "S" in 4S stood for "Siri".

    To answer your question, maybe they won't go with 5S, but another name for the next iPhone

    Why because you look like an ass attacking someone and then being proven wrong?

    not to step on any toes here but SIRI was an app long before the 4s came out. Ive had it on my old 3gs even before it was announced for the ip4s. Apple bought the app and made it a feature.

    S in 3GS means Speed.

    During the D10 interview, Tim Cook said he was thinking S as Siri in the 4S.

    Thanks for providing the link to that article I coulda sworn I read it somewhere! There are IMHO two likely scenario since apple names things arbitrarily:

    1) go back to 5S where S means speed again, (this will solidify naming scheme for consumers for the iPhone line but might carry "bad memories" from the 4-4S transition)

    OR

    2) follow iPad scheme and call it The New iPhone (which IMHO would backfire since it would be more a mid cycle update)

    In the iPhone 5S, Apple will add a NFC chip and tilt to zoom. The S will stand for sacrilege.

    I do think it's a losing game in general to try to predict future iPhone names. They clearly do not have a coherent or logical naming policy for the iPhone -- it seems to just be whatever sounds good at the time. When they called the iPad 3 "the new iPad," I thought for sure they were going to extend that to the iPhone line and just call this one "the new iPhone." But no. So the next one could be the iPhone 6, or "the new iPhone," or 5S, or the FunFone 5000.
