There's been a few flying around the last few weeks, being an Apple user I tend to get a few emails a day concerning Apple products, and just recently have had a few suggestion what the next iphones going to be. I tend to ignore most of them. But I have been interested enough to not buy the S4 or HTC One until the Apple announcement.

I am a total fanboy and have loads of Apple hardware including an iphone 5. I just got my hands on an HTC One as I am bored with the iPhone.

The HTC One is a fantastic phone but I am already irritated after one day being out of the Apple eco system. Apple make everything work so well together. Damn you Crapple!! I want a bigger screen and an up to date OS.

Will probably be sending the One back as much as it pains me. Its stunning. Great build quality, amazing screen and SOUND. Damn you Apple... Grrrr

Yes there's a few things I'd like to see on the iPhone 6, slightly bigger screen, sd card for photos and music, widgets for turning on wifi, 3g etc or at least a quick access button for the most used features hidden away in settings.

I think between the S4 and HTC One I'd go for the HTC but I do like the way all my Apple products work together, and I would miss that should I go over to Android.

You may see a bigger screen and quick access toggles but I doubt you will ever see an SD card slot.

Agreed. Apple will never include this and even some other manufacturers are starting to move away from it.

Yes its very annoying Apple's reluctance to put a SD card slot in, even if its locked down to just photos, music, movies etc.

I wonder how long before the "Droidboys" come along to tell us all these things are available on Android devices?

I don't see Apple telling anyone including the networks about any new phone until they officially anouce it. The network may have put it on the system ready for the next iPhone. But if they told a network then they would be as good as telling everyone

"Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services that we can't wait to introduce in the fall and into 2014"

That one's Tim Cook, I'm guessing that you can't get any more reliable than that...

Giving how the cost of the iPhone 5 seems to be falling quite rapidly in price on contract and off, there could be some merit in this. May sellers and resellers want to clear their inventory in anticipation?

To be fair, they're virtually giving away the 16gb models, totally useless if you ask me. The guy in CPW the other day tried to get me to take a 16gb model, I pointed out the my current 32gb iPhone 4 has 22gb used on it, so straight away I'd have to ditch some stuff. Talk about going backwards.

I would think iOS 7 will be announced in Jume and released probably in September along with the new iPhone.

To be honest, the only thing keeping me on iphone is how daunting it would be to have to try and pull my music collection off itunes. But the 5 has been so pants that if the 6 doesn’t really do something special (and I really can't see it happening) I will probably finally move away to android.

Agree, I was underwhelmed by the 5 and decided to stick to my 4. I have looked at the 5 again and its ok, but I have decided to wait and see what the 6 offers. Wasn't that blown away with the Galaxy S4, so it my be the HTC One if the 6 is crap.
