    I read that there was going to be a soft update, or 4GS, then a full upgrade this coming summer or whatever. What's the situation?

    The 3G to 3GS upgrade was the biggest steps hardware wise for the iPhone.

    All signs right now point to a faster A5 and different design.

    Er, no. iPhone 5 would be iPhone 5, iPhone 4GS would be iPhone 4GS. iPhone 5 is not the same as 4GS.

    lol

    I'm sure there will be many spec geeks who will complain it doesn't have the most ram, fastest processor, or biggest screen. They'll point to all of the devices that have a better spec in some area. They'll call it the 4S and bitch about it.

    The rest of the world will probably just call it what Apple names it. iPhone 5. New iPhone. Cloud Thingie. or whatever they end up calling it.

    Based on these strong rumors/facts, I doubt it will be a small upgrade:

    - Stronger competition
    - Elongated home button (gestures?)
    - It's been a longer time between regular iPhone upgrades
    - This is Apple's main source of revenue, they won't do a small upgrade this time around.

    The situation has not changed since the last person asked this question last week, or the week before that or the week before that etc...

    No one knows until it gets announced by Apple.

    How bored did you have to be to answer it that way?

    (Yes, I know that can be turned round on me too, but I get fed up with the holier-than-thou tone of these sort of replies!)

    Given the difference in parts it'll be very different.
