    Any thread is a good thread to proclaim that the compulsory replacement connector you paid 20 for doesn't fit the new phones.

    Was anyone expecting anything different + I'm not sure what there is to add to phones now other than software changes.

    Their normal cycle is big revisions - incremental - big revisions

    This just feels even less impressive than the 4S reveal. That the new model is still outshadowed by rivals already on the market is a big mistake, as is 4g in the UK which won't be of much use for most people for at least a couple of years unless they live in central cities.

    I'm a bit surprised that after all the rumours of an ipad mini, that wasn't announced. Or is it still going on?

    So the best they could come up with was another row for app icons, a slightly bigger screen that is still smaller than its rivals, 4G which most people won't have for several years, and another proprietary connector.

    Wow.
    So the bigger the screen the better? Nope. 4G being rolled out.Another proprietary connector - another? Are you fucking kidding me. When was the last time they changed that? I think it is a pretty damn boring update tbh, but you are being a complete try hard cock as usual with this attempt at getting attention. God you are a cunt.

    What big revisions did you want?

    Does this have any basis in reality?

    Genuine question, I don't have an iPhone so shit might have changed.

    Depends what connector - if the cable then the adaptor will make it usable. If it's any sort of dock then you're fucked.

    If anyone thinks Apple have gotten where they are through their monumental updates and improvements to their products, then I think you need your head examining.

    The Iphone 5 is basically exactly what everyone thought it was going to be. No surprises, and that in itself, is definitely not a surprise.

    Get bent.

    It's going to be in 16 major cities this year and I'm pretty sure that the majority of people live in cities. That's with just one provider too, the other networks will be rolling it out next year (which is only a few months away). So I wouldn't underestimate the significance of a 4G iPhone.

    And it won't be until the end of next year before other networks start providing coverage.

    I hadn't thought of that. I look forward to some funny episodes of Watchdog.

    Yeah. It's pointless to future proof things, what a bunch of twats.

    I said the same thing about the LCD tv I had supporting HD resolutions despite there being nothing widely available to drive it. Stupid samsung.

    Yeah, it would just have been better for ofcom to not remove all competition from EE for no reason I can see. The competition might have resulted in a good service for someone.

    Makes perfect sense for them to include 4G of course. Just that unless you live in one of the 16 cities that EE will cover, there's little reason for people to upgrade just yet if data speed is their main reason for looking to buy. There will be other reasons of course. I don't really think Apple are evil.

    On behalf the the Samsung legal team that lost the California case...(not really)

    Go Apple, its your birthday! :p :D

    Public fooled into believing 'iPhone 4S is iPhone 5'

    Actually did you know Apple was founded on April Fools Day?

    At what point does the worm turn? I can't see this being anything other than hugely successful. Yet you have to think this tactic will backfire at some point? Surely even the richest of people tire of five hundred pound yearly revisions with new contracts etc?

    FCUTA!

    They will always have a corner of the market but I only see it getting smaller now. Everyone else has pretty much caught up and will just nibble away their market share and power. Still, lovely devices and a great store to back it up so their user base will be healthy for some time to come. Apple are just wringing every penny out their current devices and will fall back before they come out with something that excites people again.

    @jonsaan

    And surely I agree with you but people just get a new phone every 2 years as part of their contract and don't mind when the cost is factored in for the service. Especially as these phones aren't exactly built to last.

    That is the most ludicrous lawsuit if true.

    Shouldn't be too surprising after the idiocy that was the Apple Records lawsuit.

    On the face of it, that is indeed a ridiculous lawsuit (if true). How does it tie into Apple Records though?

    It doesn't, other than to say that Apple have a history of launching ridiculous lawsuits against other companies (the ridiculousness with Apple Records was, of course, that the record label had existed for decades before Apple the tech company even existed)
