    Thanks Tim. Personally I don't really car what it's called. More interested in the features etc.

    You specifically signed up to MacRumors to let us know this.

    Thank you very much for that, please do share how you came to this conclusion.

    Don't state your predictions as fact.

    First and only post. That's the best you can do?? How about adding some facts?

    Edit: Very nice. Now toss in a little spam for good measure. :mad:

    Nope. I have unconfirmed sources outside of Apple that say it is called the iPhone Pequeño (4.7") and iPhone Grande (5.5"). They live in south LA though, so maybe they are using local terminology?

    Several sites on the internet mention the names that the OP did. If it's true, I really really don't like it. Not necessarily the names, but the philosophy that bigger is better. Apple joins the masses. I am perfectly happy with the 5s size and think any bigger is too big for my liking. I'll withhold judgment until I see the phones, but I think apple has just lost this customer. HT anyone?

    Are they other forums, or sites with people in the know? Because if it's the former, then anyone could say anything. I predict it will be called the iPhone flabber-waggle-bottom. Now watch the android sites have a field day with what 'other sites' say it will be called :)

    Saying that, they can't keep going with the number convention forever. I always thought they would introduce the 'air' name at some point and I do honestly think with the designs we're seeing that the '6' will actually be branded the 'air'. Dislike the 'pro' though.

    I suppose the bigger question is that if they go with 'air' and 'pro', and we assume another 'c' will come out next year, what will that be called?

    They should call it Air and Mini to be consistent with iOS devices rather than MacBooks, but the 4.7" isn't exactly mini, is it?

    First post that made me chuckle aloud today. Thanks for that.

    ----------

    Many believe that it will also include bumped specs, so having better specs and larger work area would make it more "pro," wouldn't it?

    I don't have an inferiority complex concerning my size nor my title, so buying the smaller and it not being called "Pro" doesn't bother me in the least. You?

    Really? The naming convention with the numbers was convenient and made it easier for me to resell the phones.

    East LA is little Tijuana. South LA is rural San Diego. ;)

    Nobody knows for sure what it's called yet except Apple. Just wait for the keynote, it's less than 48 hours away :)

    Thanks for clearing that up, man. I was losing sleep. :rolleyes:

    In all seriousness, I think there is some risk in the Air/Pro thing. Implying that the larger screen is Pro is not a good idea. If you had a setup where they continued the C line of phones and you called those "Air" and the new phones (regardless of screen size) "Pro" it would make more sense.

    Realistically, keeping a numbering scheme of some sort makes the most sense because phones are something that people are likely to upgrade yearly or every other year, while laptops and desktops (and even iPads) are something that people are more likely to hang onto for 3-5 years or even longer in some cases.

    People will want to know what version of phone they have at a glance and whether it is newer or older than other versions.

    You're partially correct. In a major new partnership it will be sold in these sizes.

    The iPhone 4 will be brought back as the iPhone Short.
    The iPhone 5s will be known as the iPhone Tall.
    It's the iPhone 4.7 inch that will be the Grande.
    And the 5.5 will be the Venti.

    The partnership of course is with Starbucks.
