    Why the fuck is it called the iPhone 5? It's the sixth.

    Why would they jump to 6 when their previous model was 4S?

    I sure hope Apple adds an A6 chip into iPhone 5. That thing is going to be quite a beast.

    Because the "revisions" of the iPhone 3G and iPhone 4 don't really add to the count.

    I feel a bitching contest coming on, feel I need to be the adult before it gets started, Doesn't matter what re-iteration it is, it's a phone.

    I really wish Apple would just ditch numbers. Like the iPad, and all of their computers.

    Just "The (new) iPhone" simple and all the customer has to do is say that to get it.

    In Singapore, our Apple store "geniuses" call the new iPad as iPad 3 to avoid confusion.

    But since the 1st iPhone was discontinued long ago, I guess it would be safe to name it The new iPhone.

    Still, I prefer numbers.

    The original iPhone was called "iPhone 2g".

    There was a 3GS wasn't there. They might be revisions but I think they still count to a degree. So 2G(first), 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S and soon 5.

    I was replying to a silly man who claimed that the revisions of the iPhone 3g and 4 didn't count.

    If there's an Iphone that comes after it, what will it be called?
    The new NEW Iphone?

    Or wait, the super valuable, fantastical, ergonomical, economical, technological, continental, increadible, unbelivable NEW Iphone? XD

    Yeah... Iphone 5 is good enough for me.

    It'll be called "The new iPhone." I can't give any sources and you have no reason to believe me, but just remember this post on September 12th.

    How do you know this? You're guessing based on "The new iPad".

    I'm not guessing at all. I know for a concrete fact that it'll be called "The new iPhone."
