    Hahahahahahaha - that makes me laugh. Apple are experiencing some real falls from grace here, especially if it's a design "issue"
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    I seriously doubt this. It would totally devalue the Apple brand and really annoy their customers.

    I doubt this as well.

    Unless they came in with a bigger screen as well how could they justify it? Or is speculation to do with A6x chip they will be bringing out?

    "The same Chinese news source also indicated that Apple TV and a new version of one of the iPad family will be out in the same time-frame as the iPhone 5S."

    So an iPad Mini with Retina then? Or iPad mini with current display but same hardware as the newnew iPad? Unlikely to be both, they need to keep something on hand to add on for 6 months later

    Re: News - Apple iPhone 5S to be launched in Q1 2013?

    They did similar with IPad 3(new ipad) and Ipad 4(new new ipad) That was about 6 months between release dates so its not as if they havent done this kind of thing before.

    Plus to say it will annoy the apple customers I think that if telling them they dont know how to hold a phone correctly didnt piss them off then a new phone coming out after 6 months is unlikely to cause them to cry too much.

    Agreed, with the behaviour of the company I would never recommend, or purchase, one of their products myself but none of that seems to bother their customers.

    Maybe we are the weird ones for caring how a company acts...

    Yep. Although from one perspective they had to do it to bring the new connector across their line of products and bring the chip up to a similar speed with the iPhone 5. I counted that as annoying and maybe a one off with a return to a 'yearly' cycle of their products. If they were to release a new iPhone, 6-8 months down the line it would annoy (need a stronger family friendly word) a lot more people.

    However if they need to do something, add a Retina iPad Mini ...

    They're trying to catch up with Chrome 23, Firefox 16, Opera 12 and IE10.

    Not sure how this will do Apple any favours. Apple fan boys who just got the 5 will be mega cheesed off - more than they were already with buying a piece of rubbish in the first place!!..:-)

    This will tear a deeper gap between Apple and its customers...

    Re: News - Apple iPhone 5S to be launched in Q1 2013?

    This is typical Apple and why i hate them with a passion.

    There should be no Iphone 5S, there should have never been a 4S or a 3S. this is pure money making by Apple. The S version of each phone should have been the first release not the second.

    Better to Burn out than Fade Away
