    There is much speculation that Apple is working on a new generation iPhone to take the place of the only recently released iPhone 4. The speculation is that because of the iPhone 4 antenna issue, Apple might push out the iPhone 5 as early as January 2011.

    Will you get the Iphone 5...even though you just got the Iphone 4?

    Do you think Apple will release Iphone 5 in Jan?


    {all polls/votes are for Jan 2011 and not for 2010}

    as dates of the poll were incorrect should be 2011 instead of 2010

    Honestly, if it did come out, I'll sell my iP4 on eBay and get the new one. Heck, Android comes out with a new phone every 2 months and always screws over their customers.

    Yes.

    The horrendous PR that Apple has received from the iPhone 4, well before it launched, will force this.

    27-1 No is winning by a slight landslide.

    I wouldn't be upset since it is easy to resell an iPhone, but I would be shocked if they do. If they release a new one it will just be a new version of 4 more compatible with a new service provider.

    It's not happening. That's a whole lot of wishful thinking and hot air...

    Everyone that voted that it is not being released this Jan already has the iphone 4. And they would probably start crying and have a heart attack if the iphone 5 comes out so soon.

    This thread and poll is worthless and means nothing

    This would be PR nightmare x2 for Apple. First of all, most people who suffered through you're-holding-it-wrong 2010 will be rather upset that, in fact, they weren't. But then what? People buy a "new" iPhone 4.5 (since fixing an antenna and going to Verizon hardly justify changing everything again, again) are six months from WWDC WTFdom.

    Just not feasible, not reason to bring up the bad memories again.

    EDIT: Where is the option to buy an iPhone 5 next June (when it will be released)?

    No, I'm 98% positive it will not come out in January. That would be stupid on Apple's part.

    I'll be upgrading in June (like always) to the iP5.

    Sad thing is. Even if they did release a new iphone Jan 2011, Apple would knowingly piss off the 3+ million that bought the IP4. Those people (myself included) would piss and moan, cry foul and curse Apple to no end. Ultimately, probably a good percentage of those "pissed off" would probably get the new iPhone anyways....myself included.

    Hopefully they won't since I don't want to go through the hassle of getting a new one, ditching mine, syncing, blah blah blah. IF they did, they would undoubtedly have to make some sort of restitution to the current IP4 owners in one way, shape or form. And another free case wouldn't cut it this time.

    Nobody even cares about the antena issue anymore it seems like. People who like the phone have it and those who do not like the phone have moved on.

    That's because the "issue" was largely one of sheer fabrication, wrought by the OCD-damaged and hyped by the media.

    I'm going with no, it won't. The next one Apple releases will be the White version of the iP4.

    Come on , just enjoy the phone rather than worrying about when your self-esteem is going to take a dive because the device you think makes you cool is no longer the newest thing on the market.

    Considering thousands [millions?] have used their upgrade, i doubt people will spend $400 for a new iPhone after 6 months of the release of the iPhone 4

    Seriously i dont know why people make the antenna issue a BIG ********* PROBLEM

    Yes i do have the antenna issue but in reality it isnt a real problem, this is coming from a guy that gets 1-2 bars at home

    Threads like these make me sad.

    Absolutely not. The iPhone 4 is hardly keeping up with demand with international releases, with some countries waiting in the wings still.

    Just use the damn thing, bumper or not.

    At least here on MR, a good chunk of people seem to upgrade their hardware, be it iPhones or Macs, with each revision.

    Also, this rumor could very well be true. With the advances that Android is making, and HP's push for webOS and Win Phone 7 launching, Apple might move the iPhone up to a 6-month lifecycle.
