    Snapshot, if there is a big enough camera upgrade, or perhaps sensitivity, if they add force touch.

    I don't think it was officially stated that is what they stood for.

    It's always been speed. Never meant anything else.

    Unofficially, but also within Apple I believe.

    Same.

    There will be some changes in the S model but never as many as we all wish for. Force Touch seems to be the most interesting and how Aplle will use it in the S model.

    With the 4S wasn't it rumored that the S was supposed to stand for "Steve"? As in 4 Steve.... Ala.... For Steve

    I remember when the C was announced Tim said colourful/classy. I think that was a joke..... The s just means an upgraded phone, c being an alternative phone.

    They aren't doing sapphire screens just yet. I think it will be force touch if anything 'sensitivity'.

    ----------

    Sensitivity- force touch.

    I think back in the day when the 3GS was rolled out, it stood for speed, after that, it was just a differentiator, that is, it really didn't mean anything.

    I believe in either the 5S or the 5 launch, 4S did stand for "Siri". Someone has said that in a keynote. I could go back and look but it's time for me to head to the office.

    Will unofficially stand for 'specs' because the 6 Plus needs better ones.
