Re: iPhone 6

The GN2 fit in my pockets fine. Unless you wear very tight pants, or stuff a lot if shit in your pockets, I doubt it would be a problem.

I'm really getting kind of tired of the passive aggressive insults being leveled at anyone who has concerns about an over-sized phone fitting comfortably in their pockets. I don't wear "very tight pants". I wear pants that are the correct size for my frame (32" waist, 33" inseam). Some pants (dockers, suit pants, some cargo-style pants) have somewhat deeper pockets, and would probably not be an issue. But most of my jeans may not fit a 5.5" phone in a way that is satisfactory to me.

Maybe people who don't understand the problem are wearing over-sized cargo pants all the time or something. (see, obtuse pigeonholing of people can be annoying).

Simmer down. You're seeing offense where none was meant.

Sorry about that. I've just seen the "tight pants" argument used one time too many, and too often it is meant as a put-down.

Anyway, I do intend to give the 5.5" iPhone a chance when it is released. It's just that my hopes aren't high that I will find it a satisfactory "fit".

A good friend of mine is 6' 4", and therefore the pockets in his pants are much larger than mine. Needless to say, he is very excited about the 5.5" phone.

Re: iPhone 6

I don't put a lot of stock in that rumor, but if it's true 5.5" seems pretty huge. The "smaller" 4.7" size seems reasonable though.

Re: iPhone 6

I wonder if 5.5" would be big enough to effectively kill the market for the iPad mini?

I don't think it would, given the 2 1/2" difference in screen size, but who knows? Only time will tell.

Re: iPhone 6

I hope not. I like my iPad mini retina. 10" iPad is just too big.

I think it's the iPod Touch that's in danger.

Also read that only the 5.5" will have 128GB option.

IPhone 5: 6.84 in2
Iphone 6 5.5": 13.3 in2
Ipad mini : 30 in2
Ipad : 45 in2

Re: iPhone 6

Sounds like the 4.7" might be delayed until November and the 5.5" in to 2015.

Or, those just might be more unsubstantiated rumors. Kind of like the photos of completed iPhone 6 units that supposedly came directly from the production line.

Yep, very well could be. Which is why I used the word "maybe."

I know. I'm just finding it interesting looking through the comment threads at macrumors.com. They are getting pretty worked up over every rumor, as if they are all undeniable fact. Some have already pronounced the iPhone 6 a failure. Others have gone so far as to call Apple doomed.

All I'm saying is that everyone should just step back, breathe, and remember that most of these rumors are nothing more than people seeking attention for themselves.

I have a cable with the Lightning connector on one end that splits into a USB/power and a headphone jack. One goes into my AUX and the other plugs into my power source. The iPhone only connects using the Apple connector, no headphone jack required. My car has Bluetooth capabilities but unfortunately not for music.

I'll be more pissed that the $150 headphones I bought cannot be used without yet another $39.99 Apple adaptor.

Oh, and I could accept a slight increase in size but I like the way it is now. I have no desire for a large phone.

Re: iPhone 6

Luckily the 5S is really well put together with a lot of horsepower under the hood. I'll have no problem waiting for the 6S and enjoying iOS 8 on my 5S for the next year.

Re: iPhone 6

The iPhone can charge while playing music? I don't think I'd use the car bluetooth since I hear it really eats a lot of battery life.

Re: iPhone 6

Nothing's been announced. The 5S is 8 MP and is, IMO, very good for a phone camera.

i think so too. never had a problem with it thus far and takes really good pictures in all sorts of light. my favorite is i did a panoramic shot of Times Square. 360 degrees of still photos spliced together to make a beautiful picture of one of the most lively places on earth...

Re: iPhone 6

If I were to guess, I'd guess that they will up the camera to 12 MP. Apple has never tried to fight spec to spec with Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, etc. and I don't see them suddenly trying to one up them on megapixels.

Re: iPhone 6

The latest rumors have them using a new Sony Exmor IMX220 13MP, 1/2.3 sensor.
