Iphone 5S and Iphone 6 for 2013

Recommended Posts

Hold the phone! Apple is going to release iPhone 6 this year?! No way! That would only follow the schedule for every iPhone released thus far.

Actually, it wouldn't. The release cycle has been, so far:

1.) iPhone

2.) iPhone 3G

3.) iPhone 3GS

4.) iPhone 4

5.) iPhone 4S

6.) iPhone 5

 

So the pattern is:

1.) Revolutionary new iPhone.

2.) Same iPhone with revolutionary new features. (Speed in 3GS, Siri in 4S)

3.) Revolutionary new iPhone.

Well, they've never released two phones in one year, so it doesn't follow the schedule at all. It is all rumors though and I don't see it happening.

 

A 5 inch iphone would be interesting, especially if the battery life was out of this world. Unless it offered something amazing over my Note 2, I'd probably pass.

You guys are missing the joke. That a new iPhone will be released in a given year is hardly breaking news. Talk of a new iPhone lasts *only* everyday for the 150-250 days in the year before a new iPhone is inevitably released.

 

Sigh...

Any hope of apple ever destroying android went away when Steve Jobs passed away. Anyway, what apple needs to do is release the rumored iphone 10.

Hey, there was a valid reason for that. There has been one incident in the 4 months I've had this phone that no SVDO/SVLTE gave me a problem.

Okay, people, if you want to keep this thread open, keep the ad nauseum Android/iOS debate to a minimum.

 

Thanks...

We get it. You don't like the iPhone. I swear you post in this forum more than actual iPhone users.

Its funny how just about any apple news turns into a ios vs android debate. Anyway to get back on topic I just don't see apple coming out with two different iphones around the same time. I think the iphone 5s will be the typical minor refresh from the iphone 5 but I do think that the iphone 6 will have a larger screen than 4 inches but then again there are two current versions of the ipad that are different sizes so who knows. It will be interesting to see how this will play out but apple is really leaving a hell of a lot of money on the table with their one size fits all approach.

This is why the idea is atleast plausible. They already down sized the iPad(mini) to try to cash in on the smaller than 10 tablet market. The only two things that might stop Apple from coming out with two phones in one year is the possible cross shopping of two new iPhone models and the number of iPhone models currently in production. Assuming they drop the iPhone 4 that would leave the 4s,5,5s and 6. Thats four phones with three diffrent designs. Unheard of for Apple and it may decrease their profit margin on each device sold.

And yet you're in this forum.

 

 

On topic, I'd be surprised to see the iPhone go the iPad two-size route. Apple might eventually go with a slightly larger than 4” size, but I'm not sure the market for big phones is large enough to make it worthwhile for them.

I wouldn't be surprised if we just say a 3.5, 4, 5 inch iphones.

 

Everyone has a different preference.

I don't think Apple will come out with another different sized device. We'll see the iPhone 5S come out this year with perhaps a better camera, or something minor, and next year we'll see a 6, which will have something crazy and unique. Maybe thinner, with a higher res screen, or something out of the box.

 

I foresee NFC in the 6.

Apple rumors are worse than assholes - everyone's got several and there's always more crap coming out :)

 

Don't pay any attention. Apple will do whatever they think makes for a great product.

 

 

We can also be sure they won't make the phone bigger or battery life worse to support SVDO because it requires two separate channels, one to run CDMA 1X, another to keep pumping LTE or EVDO. They aren't going to do that just to temporarily accommodate an end-of-life technology only used by a few carriers worldwide. There's nothing wrong with VoLTE, Skype is VoIP and makes up 1/3 of all international phone traffic now - that's over all sorts of random internet connections, WiFi routers, etc. In fact I can hold Skype conversations over Sprint LTE just fine, the only reason I drop a call is because the LTE coverage isn't 100% and the 3G network is worse than dialup, but so long as I keep an LTE signal it even hands-off between towers reasonably well - and that's tech not even aware its running on a cell network!

 

As soon as Sprint deploys it, the whole simultaneous voice/data problem goes away. (LTE supports QoS to dedicate bandwidth to the voice traffic so it will be perfectly reliable.)

Don't come into the Apple/iOS forum, take a big ol' dump on everything, then act innocent/offended when people get upset. You knew what you were doing and did it on purpose.

 

I don't go into the Android subforums because I don't give a shit about Android and will never use it, therefore I have no reason to bother those people.

 

Do us all a favor and extend the same courtesy. If any Apple users pester you over there, report them to the mods.

 

 

 

Speaking of, I'd like to recommend a ban for blatant trolling by Rukin1, Exhibit #1:

Power management has nothing to do with it. The issue is antenna design and separate transmit paths. Apple's external antenna design is both an advantage and a limitation.

 

They aren't going to do that just to temporarily accommodate an end-of-life technology only used by a few carriers worldwide.

 

"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated."

 

CDMA1X will still be alive and kicking five years from now. You can come back then and eat crow.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.

      CONTEST CLOSED!!!
       
      LIMITED TIME PROMOTION!!!
      YOU COULD POSSIBLY WIN A NEW iPHONE 8 IF YOU DONATE TO SUPPORT S4GRU
      **OR COMPARABLY PRICED ANDROID DEVICE!**

       
      The Goal
       
      The goal is to have some fun and raise some money to support S4GRU.  If we can raise enough money to cover the device by 8 PM Pacific Time on Friday, October 27th, then we will schedule the raffle.  The contest winner can select the color from what's available.  The winner can also select the carrier (not limited to Sprint).
       
      The Plan
       
      If we are able to raise at least as much as the device costs us plus incidental charges like taxes and shipping, we will add any additional proceeds to the S4GRU general fund.  If we can't raise enough, we will provide opportunity to refund.
       
      And which model it ends up being depends on how much money we can raise.  If we raise just $750, it will be the iPhone 8 64GB ($699 value).  For each additional $500 we collect beyond $750, we will give another $100 in toward upgrading to the iPhone 8+, iPhone X or memory/apple care upgrades.  The winner can select any variant or upgrades, but they will need to pay any cost difference, from the prize value.  Increases in prize vales will be announced in this thread.  THE WINNER CAN SELECT AN ANDROID DEVICE IN LIEU OF AN iPHONE, IF THEY CHOOSE.  Like a NOTE 8, Pixel 2, LG V30, Essential Phone, etc.  Equal or lesser value to the winning iPhone prize.
       
      The Raffle
       
      Each donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO will receive a range of numbers, equating to one number for every dollar you donate.  The minimum donation to the cause is $10.  If you donate $10, you get a range of 10 numbers.  If you donate $100, you get a range of 100 numbers.  The more you donate, the greater your chances of winning.  There is no limit to the amount you can donate...in amount or frequency.  But it needs to be at least $10 per donation to the iPHONE 8 PROMO.
       
      You will receive a Private Message (or email if you are not a S4GRU member) from S4GRU giving you your numbers after your donation.  Most likely within 8-12 hours, but could take a day or two.
       
      We will stop accepting donations at 8PM Pacific on Friday, October 27th.  Any donations received after that time will not be counted toward this promotion.  Date and time of the drawing will be announced after the close of donations acceptance.  We will select a number at random using my random number generator app in my Pixel XL.  You do not need to be present in the live chat to win.
      All money donated to the raffle will be credited to your S4GRU accumulation total and will count toward future upgrades.  If you are not currently a S4GRU Sponsor, you will be given Sponsor status for six months with the minimum $10 raffle donation.

      To Enter
       
      Go to the S4GRU PayPal Donation section by clicking on this hyperlink or by by clicking the donate button in the upper right hand corner of most S4GRU pages.  Enter an amount you want to donate for this promotion, minimum $10.  In the notes section, tell us your screen name and type iPHONE 8 PROMO.  If you forget to do that in the PayPal donation, then send me a Message.  You will get a message response giving you your raffle numbers by 11 PM Pacific on 10/27/2017.  If you don't get them, message me.

      Rules
       
      S4GRU Membership is not required to enter.  S4GRU Staff Members and their families are ineligible to win.  Dollars spent on the promotion will count toward future member upgrades.  There is no cash value of the prize.  S4GRU will pay the shipping costs to send the prize to the winner.  The winner will be offered options as to network selections, device options and colors based on availability within the winning prize amount.   S4GRU cannot guarantee availability of any products, types, varieties or colors.  Although many devices can be used on several networks, S4GRU cannot guarantee operability on any network.  A SIM card purchase for the winner's preferred network may be required and is not paid by S4GRU.  This contest is void where prohibited.  Pre-scheduled automatic recurring payments to S4GRU during the contest period will not be eligible for entry in the contest.  Should the winner desire a phone other than the iPhone product offered at contest conclusion, they can request an Android device of equal or lesser value.  If a device more expensive than the iPhone offered is desired, the winner will need to pay the difference before the product will be ordered. If winner selects a less expensive phone than the prize offered, S4GRU will retain those funds as a donation.  The contest may be subject to amendment, extension or cancellation as necessary.  S4GRU reserves the right to provide a gift card or PayPal payment of the value of the prize for convenience or difficulty in sourcing the prize occurs.
