    I think that latest report about force touch in the next iPhone is premature. I'm sure that's whe the technology is heading, but it's probably too soon. I doubt they'll change the casing. Didn't Apple buy a sapphire plant? Not the one that went bankrupt. After seeing what the watch does with sapphire, I'm sure they'll want it on everything if they can cheaply produce it.

    Actually iPhone screens are laminated to the glass since the iPhone 4. :)

    With how brittle sapphire glass is, I hope it isn't

    No, the other guy is right. They didnt start truly laminating to the glass until the 5

    That's not an "S", on my planet it stands for hope.

    S stands for Samsung. New features added in S model always get copied by Samsung.

    Not true, in fact the correct spell is "3Gs, 4S, 5s" the second "S" being the only uppercase (Siri).

    The "s" stood for "speed" in 3Gs. I don't think the rest actually stood for anything. It's just a naming convention. It's not like the people at Apple are sitting around thinking specifically about what feature they can add that starts with "s".

    Except for when Cook said that the S stood for Siri in the 4S... ;)

    Finding the actual quote about it it seems like that's what they were thinking about when they added the 'S', but not necessarily what it officially stands for as it wasn't even mentioned anywhere at all (unlike the 3GS case when they at least mentioned it as part of the announcement). So perhaps it's more appropriate to refer to it all as things that Apple thinks of when it comes to 'S' that is added, and not so much what they "officially" stand for (since for the most part, at least officially speaking, they are just simply part of the name without anything specifically, again officially speaking, attached to them).

    With the iPhone 5 they removed the air gap so it looks like "the pixels are on the glass".

    amazed

    I honestly never knew that 'S' actually stood for anything. To confirm, I checked online and the 4S and 5S actually meant different things. I am curious to what iPhone 6S will stand for. :eek:

    Apple did it right the first time so they are going to offer the same iphone 6/6plus this September and people will buy it.

    That said the S is plural. They'll own iPhone 6'S

    ZING!

    I think Apple will wait with force touch until the sales are decreasing, Force Touch will make ft-apps, so all old iPhones will become useless and people will be forced to buy an iPhone with Force Touch.

    First two were official.
    S for Speed
    S for Siri

    S for Security, not official. But likely and conveniently fits.

    Probably the 6S will get OIS since Samsung can stuck that into their regular S6.

    An upgrade in RAM size to 2G (LPDDR4) would definitely appeal the geeks like me.
