If any of the rumours are true and apple are about to release the main new iPhone and 2 lower spec iPhones with various colours

could they not just call them all

Apple iPhone 5S for the new lowest but better than the iPhone 5.

Higher spec than iPhone 5S is the iPhone 6

Newest best version & with the same number as the new ios the Apple iPhone 7

Not rocket science and gets the phones and iOS releases up to date with each other.

I really hate and don't understand the S on the end of the name for its incremental update.

The S has always stood for Speed, well put it this way, all the S models have had upgraded processors/more ram/ better graphics chip.

Says who? Apple have never said that. The same can be said for all the non S models too. In fact all iphone updates are just upgrades.

I'd assume that the S would more likely stand for Second as its the second version of that generation iPhone.

Apple says that the S stands for Speed, as of when they launched the 3GS.

Tim Cook said in an interview that the S in iPhone 4S stood for Siri.

That was the only time you noticed the speed boost the 4S felt no quicker and I expect the 5S to be the same.

I've had a 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4S and I can tell you each one IS much quicker at everything, from booting up to loading apps etc.
Think I timed my old 4 and my 4S booting up and the S was a whole 20 seconds quicker. Which is massive really.

I did that as well when i had my 4S and the missus had her 4. The 4S was a fraction quicker. Not 20 seconds though!

Also doing most things like browsing, opening apps, the 4S wasn't much faster. Games, there wasn't much i played the Mrs couldn't either.

I couldn't personally see the point in the 4S.

The iphone 4 didn't even take 20 seconds to boot up!

Seeing as we haven't had any leaked different case designs like we did with the 4 and the 5 i'm willing to put my money on the 5s.

I just tested this with my wife's iPhone 4. It took 39 seconds to boot. My iPhone 5 took 25 seconds. I would think the iPhone 4S is somewhere between those two.

THe problem is that all modern phones are so fast you don't actually "feel" a difference. But I do know when I went from the 4 to the 4S the time it took TomTom to calculate a route virtually halved.

I guess it depends on the apps but when I tested the 4 and 4S side by side there was hardly any difference in speed.In fact the 4 was slightly quicker at opening some apps.
The speed difference from 3 to 3G was was far more noticeable.

I think you may be confusing wake from sleep with boot up. I've just rebooted a friend's 4S and it took 38 seconds. My own iPhone 5 takes 30 seconds (but that may be because I am running Beta software).
