Every time I hear someone make some prediction about the upcoming
iPhone 5 I cringe. You see, we don’t have to make any predictions
about the iPhone 5 because we have it already. The iPhone 4S is
the fifth iPhone Apple has produced.
Logically, yes. But let’s face it — if Apple decided that “iPhone 5” was a good name, they’d use it, whether it’s the sixth actual iPhone or not. (I’d argue the next iPhone will be the seventh: the CDMA iPhone 4 is a different device [including a better antenna design] than the GSM model.)
Regardless, I think logic dictates that the next iPhone will
simply be called “iPhone” and be referred to by Apple as “the new
iPhone” just as, at this point, none of Apple’s other products use
I agree, which, if we’re right, makes the whole “Will they call it iPhone 5 or 6?” question moot.
