The next Apple iPhone...

Today, I see a lot of rumours starting up in the news about the iPhone 5S.  I don't think we're going to see an iPhone 5S, and here's why: 

1.  We all pretty much know a new cut-priced iPhone is in the pipeline.  Whether it's called the iPhone Lite, or iPhone 5C is immaterial.  If this is coming out this year, you cannot simultaneously introduce an iPhone 5S and say the only difference is materials.

2.  This idea that we go from a model to an S model is getting dated.  If Apple does something dated, you know it's going to get shaken up eventually.

So, my money is on an iPhone 6… rather than an iPhone 5S… and I think it'll be something of a departure from the usual "S" style of update to the current model. It'll be a new iPhone, like the 4 and 5 were.
