    It is possible to create an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 with all the power and features of the iPhone 8? Call it the Steve Jobs Edition. I would pay $1000+ for this phone. I will never buy a huge $1000 gesture based iPhone. Can the 8’s 3D Touch, 2nd gen Touch ID, haptic engine, 256 GB memory, 2 GB ram, and iPhone 8 level Bluetooth and modems be scaled into a 4 or 5 body? This feat would be a legitimate excuse for no headphone jack.

    I would buy a SJE but it would need to be a plus sized phone.

    Scaling and implementing are two different things. Can some of those features be implemented into a 4 inch iPhone? Yes, The whole reason Apple didn’t include those features was to keep that phone cheaper. What you’re asking for is something likely the general market isn’t interested in with a 4 inch iPhone with all those features, even though I see the attraction and so do others On here, Apple doesn’t, because the consumer market has spoken that they like larger phones with more battery life.

    I think the closest you’re going to get is the iPhoneSE, which isn’t a bad iPhone and does have lots of the features you mention. But it isn’t an 8...yet.
