    It's not like it is but for some people the S stands for something. 3GS is speed, 4s is Siri, 5s is security, soon 6s is for screen. the whole time it was 6s for the screen

    I always thought the 5S stood for sensor, but that's debatable. What is it about the screen you think is noteworthy? I'm hearing a near sapphire level hardness, is that it?

    I would guess the force touch screen, but who knows.

    iPhone 3GS: "S" is "Speed"
    iPhone 4S: "S" is "Siri"
    iPhone 5S: "S" is "Security"

    I can think of a word the S can stand for if 16 gigs is the base storage again ;)

    Or it could be a new naming convention they've decided to stick to.

    The 3GS was meant that way, the 4S was more of an afterthought it seems (since it only came out later and they just sort of just attributed it to it in a sense), the 5s I don't recall Apple really commenting on the 's' aspect of it.

    It's S for Snappier.

    Safari will feel snappier on the 6S/6S Plus.

    We can only hope, but I wouldn't get my hopes up for a new resolution.

    S stands for nothing. Only in 3GS it had a meaning given by Apple in its keynote. On the other models it was just a naming convention for a model that keeps the same exterior design as the previous model.

    Rumour is that it will have a screen, I think you are on to something special...

    I heard a processor will be included in this S upgrade as well. Maybe the S stands for "silicon".
