    Once the next versions of iPhone comes out..
    It will be very confusing to the public to have so many different names for 4 iPhone's

    iPhone 6
    iPhone 6 Plus
    iPhone 6S
    iPhone 6S Plus

    Since plus might also mean as added features instead of just meaning plus as in bigger screen. Plus can mean like more premium features.
    Not sure if I am making sense.
    But I think Apple might skip the S cycle and call it 7
    BUT it is true that the iPhone 6 package does not say iPhone 6 on it..It just says iPhone on it. Not sure why Apple choose to name it that way.

    Apple typically uses the same form factor for 2 years for cost savings. This allows it to reap incredible economies of scale compared to throwing out their design and R&D work and manufacturing setup after just 1 year. This strategy has worked pretty well so far and I don't see Apple abandoning it anytime soon.

    It could change next year. My theory is that Apple might offer a plastic version of the iPhone 6 (but no 6+), reserving the larger iPhone for the 6s+ (or whatever it's called).

    All the more reason why they should skip the S model and go straight to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+ IMO

    Don't forget iPhone 6 mini and iPhone 6 mini plus, the rumored 4" display.

    That makes absolutely no sense. We had the 4 and 4S, as well as the 3G and 3GS, in the same year and nobody got confused.
