    No one knows. Why is the name so important?

    Why would Apple go BACKWARDS in the iPhone number naming scheme?

    5 does not come after 6.

    Who cares. Is it that important to make a post OP ?

    You can call it whatever you like right now, but we don't know the official name until Apple says so.

    iPhone 7c,
    iPhone 6c,
    iPhone 5e,
    iPhone 5c (Second Generation)
    iPhone 5c S

    Agreed. If Apple makes a 4" iPhone this year, it will most likely be named some variant of iPhone 7.

    Not if this phone debuts before the iPhone 7...if this phone debuts in the first half of the year, it would be very unlikely to be called 7-anything.

    I agree - I would hope that a new phone would not be named "7-anything"
    Maybe they will call it an "Almost-7", or "Nearly-7", or maybe just "7-short"

    There's some dumb threads 'round here today. Just thought I'd contribute to one.

    Another thought - how about "iPhone 7/4"?

    I don't know, it kind of sounds like it might be interesting to know exactly what it is that Buddy might know about it all.

    Sure. But if it comes out before the 7 it will probable be a 6-something, not a 5-something.

    I agree they won't call this a 7x. Something like iPhone Mini is more likely IMHO.

    Expect this thread type to continue until about April, when iPhone 7 speculation frenzy will begin in earnest. New Years to April 1st are thread doldrums months. Normal, happens every year.

    I think calling it the "iPhone 5e" would be a mistake. The iPhone 6 is too popular a model for a newer phone to have a lower number in its name.

    I could see people thinking a 5e would be much older than the upcoming iPhone 7, even if it technically wouldn't be.

    It will actually be called the iPhone SE as Apple did not want to confuse the consumer by naming it the 5 while being on the 6 cycle
