@dhergert Not everything is hardware related, no. If Apple wanted, it could make the animations on each device take 5 minutes by simply changing a number (if iOS is written how I assume). Apple could, by the same method, change the animation to be faster. If the processor of the device running the animation could not keep up with what the code was asking of it, the animation would see slow frame rates and you would see more harsh movement in the animation in question. Because of this, the A6 and A7 shouldn't show too big a difference (if any at all) when it comes to this sort of animation. The differences in the A6 and A7 are more suited for once the application has actually been loaded, in how fast it can run the startup functions and get the user to the content of the application. A simple animation such as how the application "flies in" when opening shouldn't put enough strain on the processors to show a distinguishable difference between the A6 and A7; and if it is, Apple is doing something very, very wrong.

 @JonGiardina  @CallChrisNow Using the term "cheaper" for this rumor is beginning to become a little confusing. By "cheaper" we are not talking a sacrificed build quality - I agree, Apple would never do that - we are talking cheaper price for non-subsidized. The iPhone 4 is indeed free now, but only on a contract. It is not free for people in emerging markets who buy their phones off contract, however. That is where the "cheaper" comes in. If they were to build a device, such as the above render, using older parts, etc, Apple could bring the non-subsidized price point down, therefore making the new device a "cheaper" iPhone.

1 year, 9 months ago on Will the LG Nexus challenge the iPhone? [Editorial]

 @JBLmobileG1 I personally owned 2 Android devices before deciding to purchase the iPhone 5. They were not cheap Android phones either, they were full-fledged smartphones that were great at their respective time (the Droid Incredible, and the Droid Bionic). Albeit the Droid Bionic was a flop shortly after release, it did improve with successive updates. I made my decision to purchase the iPhone 5 not because I was "brainwashed" by Apple, nor because I have hundreds of dollars worth of music purchased through iTunes. I chose to purchase the iPhone 5 because it is superior in many ways to most Android devices. Not "inferior" as you suggest. There are pros and cons of both operating systems. It all comes down to personal preference. I, at a point, preferred Android. I develop for iOS, and have started looking into developing for Android. So I look at all this from a developer perspective. I now prefer iOS. One of the main reasons is build quality. You can't deny that the iPhone is built fantastically, and if you do deny it you are blinded by your arrogant hatred towards Apple. If you wish to call me a "fanboy" as your only opposing argument, so be it. You are only making yourself look a fool. I owned Android. Loved it for some time. But have moved on. It's nice to have a change now and then.

The same black bezel every "Apple hater" said was horrible and pointless when the original iPad launched, and now every person that said that is going out and buying a tablet with a large black bezel around it. I am not saying that Apple was right, or that all of them "copy" the iPad, but you have got to admit, Apple nailed the form factor for a tablet device. Everyone that makes tablets now, sticks with this same "iPad-esque" design look because it's what consumers want. Just give credit where credit is due. Apple did a great job at designing the iPad. If you disagree, care to explain why you are on an iOS centered website?

I do at times feel cluttered, and when that happens I take a step back and scale down on the things I'm trying to do at once.

My only problem with it is Windows in general. They should have rewritten in instead of just adding on to the "fluff" that is in the OS. I'm not talking bloatware application wise, I'm talking code wise. They do too much adding and not enough eliminating. There are files in there the OS will never use because they were written for XP. And some that the user will never see. Windows needs a rewrite. When it gets a rewrite and more stability, I will consider using it again over the more elegant, useful, and powerful OS X. In the meantime, maybe a developer will boot Chromium OS on this. So that those with a distaste for Windows can get their fill too. I will give it this, the design is nice.

I agree with most of what you are saying, however, I do have to disagree on the feel of holding the 4/4S. Both my parents own one or the other (you know, same design anyways) and I love the feel. I guess the reason for that is materials and solidity of the device. The plastic 3G/3GS felt, cheap. An iPhone shouldn't feel cheap, because it isn't. But the curve was good at fitting the hand. I think it's just a difference in how we perceive what feels good: actual feel, or sense of materials. I first saw the original iPhone a week after it was launched, my dad's boss of the time bought one for business reasons. It truly is a beautiful device, but wow looking back was it not near what the iPhone is today. If the black plastic at the back could be replaced, and if the thinned it down plus put modern specs inside, that would be the best designed iPhone for sure. No contest. That black plastic bar gets to me though, and the thickness. I can't wait to see some comparisons.

 @RaduTanasescu That's very true. Apple spends years developing products. Steve Jobs probably had a touch on what is even coming next year. It's a few years from now that will show where Tim is taking the company.

 @RaduTanasescu Very good points. Steve said to Walter Isaacson in his biography that he thought Tim was the obvious choice, because they both held the same values that are at the core of Apple. Hopefully this means Tim can make a "wave" of his own, as you put it.

 

As for product innovation, it's sure sounding as if that's just around the corner. Tim has something up his sleeve yet.

I've got the MacBook, iMac, iPad (multiple actually), iPod (again, multiple), and now the only piece of my puzzle missing is an iPhone. I "need" LTE and a larger screen. Don't get me wrong, I recommend the iPhone over all others, it's just not for me, yet. I have a feeling this next will more than suit my needs. Great article, very entertaining read.

I agree with all those, especially 5. With the (possibly) inevitable change to a larger screen on the next iPhone, there would be more room to facilitate such a feature quite easily. And being Apple, I'm sure they could make it work on the 3.5" screens of current generation hardware as well. The only reason I see Apple not agreeing with your first requbattle simply put: battery life. They would be nice, but they would definitely have restrictions on what they could do. It's definitely possible though.

 @samichaels96 You're right, it doesn't mean the next one won't have an LED Flash. The issue with it is previous ones have, and it's normal for the camera and LED to be mounted together. It just brings into question the authenticity is all.
