    Apple has changed the speaker on the 6 to only 1 with less holes. I know that on previous iPhones that one was a speaker, the other a microphone.

    Do you guys think that it will still be loud or even louder then the 5s?

    Since we're just speculating, I think the 6 will be louder. I've never been impressed by the iPhone 5 speaker, and I'm guessing/hoping they used the bigger phones to put some bigger drivers in there.

    The number of holes shouldn't really affect the output at these tiny sizes.

    Probably the same. Disappointing as I would like an iPhone with better sound..

    I hate using my iPhone speaker regardless of how good/bad it may sound. I always throw on my headphones if I am not in my car on bluetooth. If I don't have my headphones, I keep the conversation real short (god for bid we hold the phone up to our ear with our hand) :eek:

    Every year the phone's speakers get better (including the S models)

    My 4S's speaker was clearer and louder than my 4.

    The 6 will most likely have a better speaker.

    It's needs to be louder for navigation. The rental car I used recently didn't have Bluetooth and I had a hard time hearing the directions. Just make it louder! It can always be turned down. Ugh!
