IMO.

The 4.7 leaks are thick and fast. There can be no doubt of how it will look now. There won't be many surprises once it's finally released.

5.5? No schematics/Chinese rubber cases/blurry pics. Nothing. Nada.

Maybe eventually there will be one, but not in this cycle. I'm not sure I'd go for that big, but liking the look of the 4.7.

I hope you are wrong because I really want the 5.5" this year. However, it seems like it won't happen this year and more likely 4.7".
Me too. I was hoping to see them side by side and plump for one. Knowing me I'll get the 4.7 and then want a 5.5 when it's released....in 2016 :eek:

I actually think that Apple could do similar to what Samsung does with the Galaxy and Notes. They can release in two separate times of year.

Personally I won't be in the market for the 5.5" only the 4.7.

I also find my 5s to be a perfect size the only want I have is an HD Screen

Ah, come on!

This is ruining a lot people's fun! Surely you understand the entertainment value of rumors? It's keeping a whole bunch of folks engaged and content! It gives deep meaning and purpose to their lives...plus it gives everybody something deeply meaningful to talk about at the bar!

I mean, it's not really important that the rumor be true! It's only important that yours is bigger than theirs.

Yeah I don't think there will be a 5.5 I never thought that this year we would see one. But the problem is all these rumors have these really ugly make me want to throw up lines on the back if them... Those lines look like sh** and I hope like hell they won't happen

Sooo... 4.7" premium 6 (maybe even named 6s?) and 4" "unapologetically plastic" 6 (possibly 6c?)? This is what I'm hoping for. Slowly get me to a larger screen. Maybe so slowly that this fad will pass me by. :rolleyes:

For those who say I'm an old fogy, I'm in my early 20s. Eyesight is good, just small girly hands and a desire to keep the purse from getting too heavy (yes, gents, this is an issue; ever picked up a woman's purse when it's full?).

Heavens forbid anyone adds speculation to a site with 'Rumor' in its title.

By the way, sarcasm? Lowest form of wit. (Source-Oscar Wilde).

I'm getting a new phone this year and would prefer the 5.5. I personally think it will come out next year. Lots of advantages to waiting, not the least of which it would give them the ability to offer a completely new phone every year. 4.7 this, 5.5 next along side the 4.7S and so on.

Good thinking. I was wondering that last week. "Why are there no 5.5 leaks?" Maybe it doesn't exist.

4.7" is good enough for my tastes! :)

Oh I thought that was Olivia Wilde.....

You sure stated it as if you knew something. Of course ANYONE can write anything they want on a rumor site..... but maybe not doing that is a better idea... I mean for most, not you of course.

Gonna come back into this thread in a bit when the 5+" is announced and eat some crow?

Many people though Apple would never release an iPad mini either, but Apple eventually brought one to market.

My sense is that the 5.5" iPhone is inevitable, because there is a substantial market for this kind of device. It makes sense to create another high-margin premium product rather than cede the space to Samsung.

I think Apple deliberately leaked the 5.5" size for the iPhone. I really don't think it's the iPhone. I think it's yet another iPad.

He talking about there production orders. Apple has put in orders for 20% more iphone 6's than they did for the 5s.
Oh, now that makes sense. I think Apple realizes how many people on iPhone 4's want to upgrade. I'm so sick of waiting I almost got a 5S the other day but the screen is still too small.

I was thinking the same thing. I was going to post a picture like get ready to eat up.

Nobody knows for sure, but the announcement is coming soon. Personally I still like the 3.5" phone and clinging to my 4S. If a 4.7 and 5.5 get released I will probably upgrade to the 4.7. Though having a Galaxy S3 as my work phone, I really prefer the smaller phone. I just feel like it's time Apple is ready to release two sized iPhones. They have two sized of the MBA, two sizes of Ipads, and multiple sizes iPods, I think it's time for them to take the leap and release two sizes of iPhones.

I would love you to be right.

But I think you're wrong, unfortunately.
