    For the second time in just a matter of days a rumour has surfaced about the possibility of Apple launching an iPhone 5S, sooner rather than later. According to a report on BGR today, Digitimes has published news passed on to it by unnamed market sources, who have told the paper that the next iPhone will be released by mid 2013. Digitimes also says that the same sources have told it that Apple also plans to release another iPad by mid 2013 as well. While the iPad story seems a little unlikely, given that the fourth-gen iPad has only just launched (although you never know, stranger things have happened!), the news about the next iPhone, possibly the iPhone 5S, follows on from other rumours that Apple has already started testing the next iPhone. One credible reason for this is to correct the design flaws that have made the current iPhone 5 rather difficult to manufacture.

    I'd like to see iPad 5 sooner than later. iPad mini, too, if it involves fewer old parts.

    Why iPad 5? Are we considering the mini 4? In any case, I look forward to the day my "New iPad" becomes the most foolishly named product in Appledom.

    Are you asking because you don't know there was an iPad 3 and now there's and iPad 4, as well as a mini iPad? The next full-size iPad will be the fifth one, no matter what Apple calls it.

    So typical of Apple. I notice not many people are liking the iPhone 5 and they are turning to the Galaxy s3. I saw an black friday ad that the Galaxy s3 will be down to $50.

    What so typical of Apple ? Every phone manufacture releases new models at least 2 to 3 times a year so replacing iphones or tablets once a year or even 6 months is normal.

    I think a 6-month update cycle is something apple needs right now to hold off the competition. And android side is releasing new devices weekly.

    That's one area where having multiple manufacturers developing products using your stuff is a benefit. It's apple vs everyone else, essentially. IMO, apple still has the tablet market pretty much in hand. The mini was arguably hardware challenged and still sells well. Give that puppy some more red meat and she's a killer. The full size iPad is just a great product. My second gen unit is still getting it done.

    Phones OTOH are seeing big action on the android end. They are gaining market share and momentum.

    Sit back and let them all fight it out. Ill take the better and cheaper products, thanks. :)

    I won't be angry cuz after the 5, 5 minutes later there will be a 6. Have to get on board sometime.... No one is ever going to be ahead unless you buy each and every updated iPad.

    I've got a 4, but I don't have a prob with Apple introducing replacements quickly. To get my money, all they have to do is produce something I consider worth buying. I don't mind that they try more frequently, lol.

    I have one as well!!! One stays in my purse and the other at home. I don't think it is useless though. Technically, it is only a few months old as I had to replace it because of bad pixels or something.
