Long Time Reader/Lurker, first time poster. As an apple nut, like most on this board, I've been thinking a lot about the iPhone 5, and in particular what Tim Cook Said about doubling down on security/secrecy. Obviously the amount of leaks ahead of this launch is astronomical. But if they were serious about doubling down, maybe they did, and whats been leaked has been controlled and maybe we really haven't seen the iPhone 5, but instead redesigned 4 and 4S models. Hear me out... Amongst all the rumors lately, one in particular regarding the iPad Mini / new dock connector got me to thinking. The rumor that I'm referring to is that when they launch the mini they are supposed to be also launching a slightly redesigned iPad with the new dock connector. So along with the Mini, New iPad, New iPhone, and all of the new iPod line, everything will be using the new 9 pin connector...except the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s. So it stands to reason that Apple would want to get its entire product line updated with the new 9 pin since they will likely be selling the iPhone 4 for another year, and the 4S for two more years to maintain their "Good, Better, Best" Product structure. Redesign also makes sense for Apple for another reason, LTE, they probably understand the likelihood of someone wanting a free 4S a year and a half from now, and that without LTE that likelihood will drop by quite a bit, especially with the Cheap android LTE options already saturating that price point today. So to keep with the times, this gives them the opportunity to move to a more modern 4" screen, LTE, and update to their new pin Connector, all in an effort to not only unify their new 9-pin connector but to ensure their good & better options will continue to relevant option in the marketplace. This would also explain why all the leaks look more like the 4 and 4s than any of the teardrop and radical redesign rumors that were all floating around last year. So if this is the case, maybe the 5 in the invitation is not just a nod to the iPhone 5, but maybe a 5" iPhone. Think about it. The GSIII is 4.8" and currently the #1 smartphone on the market. If anyone can put a 5" screen in a smaller, sleeker, thinner form factor it would be apple. Of course, maybe 5" is a pipe dream, and too big, but even still if its just a nod to iPhone 5, if these are leaks are new 4 and 4s models, they could still go to 4.3 or 4.5 inches on an iPhone 5 model with a radical new design. This could also be the reason NFC is nowhere to be found on the leaked models, as that'd be a feature reserved for passbook and the iPhone 5. Especially at a time when the iPhone is no longer the #1 smartphone in the us, this model above would not only shock the tech industry, but also put in place a new plan to not only retake the #1 spot (as its sure it anyway) but to once again dominate the marketplace altogether by offering viable Free and $99 options that boast new screen, LTE, and dock connector. What do you think? Just a pipe dream? Realistic chance of happening? Or will the iPhone 5 just be another "Evolutionary" step instead of revolutionary. Maybe I just hope it is because I want a bigger screen, NFC, and a compelling reason to keep my iPhone, because if it just turns out to match the leaks, I'm gonna take a hard look at Galaxy SIII and Note II options.
