I've read multiple posts where people are preaching that the iPhone 5 is coming in the Spring time, and other posts where people think its coming in June like past iPhones. I think both predictions are way off base. When has Apple EVER (at least in recent memory) released a new product under a year from the release of the previous one? If I'm not mistaken, every new iPod, iPhone, iPad, iMac, and Macbook in the last decade has been on sale for at least one year before a new generation was released (please correct me if I'm wrong). There may have been intermittent upgrades for laptops, and maybe the occasional memory bump on an iPhone, but generally a year is the minimum. That's why I'm convinced that all these people calling for a new iPhone 5 sometime in the spring or summer are just having some wishful thinking. These people are in the first stage of grief - denial. I just cannot imagine Apple releasing a new iPhone before October 2012. I know that there were several software issues, but it seems Apple went out of their way to establish a new iPhone release schedule - why change it again? And why alienate all the people who buy the iPhone 4S with a new phone in 6 months? My luck a new phone will be released in Spring and this thread will be rehashed to show how wrong I was, but I firmly believe it will be at least 12 months until another iPhone is released.
