    when the 4.7 and 5.5 gets released this year, will you be selling other idevices that you have, ipad rMini, ipad air etc.. right now I have the rMini along with my 5S. I'm definitely buying the 4.7 and the 5.5.. the question is I don't know if I should skip the ipad mini 3 because the 5.5 will compensate for the "bigger screen".

    you guys think 5.5 will cannibalize or replace the mini 3?

    There is a chance I'll skip the 3rd Mini if I can get an iPhone in a 5.5" size. When I was using a Note 3 I didn't see a need to have a tablet as well as I only read/play games on my tablet.

    I know, a lot of people are selling their rmini and buying 5.5 as the replacement. I wonder if that will cannibalize sales.

    I think it will Cannibalize it. I've already thought of not buying a tablet, selling my 5, and allocating 100-200 more on top for the 5.5 inch model. Not sure if that's a good idea but it's one way to go!

    Not everyone sells their iDevices to help pay for a new one. We don't (my wife and I). We keep them. And since we don't use cases (I hate them) they would not fetch a mint condition price anyway.

    It's not necessary when we use either a portion of our tax refund or the one or two spare paychecks I get a year.

    That said, it will probably be the spare paycheck this year that lets me get the larger iPhone 6.

    LOL! I wish I had better income so that spare paycheck would just be pocket change!

    One paycheck goes to the rent, the other goes to bills. I get paid bi-weekly and I am the only one working (my wife is a stay at home mom). It's a struggle every month. So, the fact that there are one or two months a year with 5 weeks in them equals one or two extra paychecks a year. We count on those to help us out - plus our tax refund.

    Really? Where are they buying this nonexistent device? Just curious. And while you're at it, what will Apple stock open at on Wednesday?

    I don't understand why some people are intending to buy the 4.7 *and* the 5" iPhone.

    We are on macRUMORS to talk about possible rumors and scenarios. Its very likely a 5.5" iPhone will be released. No one is talking about buying right now, its about a "would you do this if..."

    I won't be buying one this year, but the 2015 model I will be buying. I won't sell/trade the iPad for it, but the 5s I have today will go towards the new one.

    I will buy the 6 the day they are released.

    Could care less about any mini as I love both of my Airs.

    ipad & iPhones are two different devices. I would not get one because of the other. They fit different needs.

    I plan on selling my iP5 and getting the rumored 5.5" iP6, pending the final design/feel of course. And if I do, I'll definitely be skipping buying a new iPad. As someone else posted, I used a friend's Note 2 briefly a while ago and size and general usability-wise it greatly overlaps with an iPad, mini at least.

    I might sell my 5G iPod touch, but that's about it. Everything else stays.

    The 5.5 is too weird of a size imo. It's too awkward to use as a phone and too small for a tablet. The 4.7 I think will be perfect for just about most things.
