Is it a forgone conclusion that the next phone will be called the iPhone 5s and not the iPhone 6?
right reason are lower unemployment and booming housing market.
Before, the only thing that shot the market up was QE. Now we have a strong market and a strong dollar. This is what you wanna see.
thats the plan. This is why Cook keeps telling investors to be patient and hold apple for the long run.
Apple needs a portfolio iphone. A cheap, a large and the current inbetween. They did it with macs, ipods, and ipads, why not with iphone? They do it with iphone and samsung is history. As great as the iphone is, it's very hard to compete as one vs seven phones.
it means apple is confident in what's coming and feel no rush in introducing marginal design upgrades like samsung. Samsung releases a bigger phone every 6 months and calls it innovation. You know apple is working on cool must have features that everyone will want. Patience! iPhone 5s will be good but iphone 6 will separate them from the competition.
