I am sorry if this question has been asked a thousand times, should I wait for the iPhone 5s or just get an iPhone 5? I can not get it until Fter the 28th January anyway so should. Wait for the iPhone 5s? Isn't there a rumour it will be released April time or smething?

Why do you think there will be an S model? I thought the 4S just meant that it had Siri?

Mainly rumours but there does seem to be a pattern... Apple might just invent something that begins with s lol

There has been an iPhone 3G, 3Gs, 4, 4S and now 5. It is entirely possible that a 5S may come out this year and entirely possible that a iPhone 6 may come out too..

Though, one thing is certain, looking at the difference between the 4 and 4S, they are fairly negligible and more annoying than anything else. The difference between the number changes are more important and significant..

I wouldn't expect to see another iPhone released until the Summer at the earliest, regardless of what it's name it going to be..

I might wait and people expect that they may have colour and honestly I want that so bad and although it is a bit unlikely it still may happen.

That looks 3rd party mods to change the outside case. I would wait, and see what Apple has to offer in 2013. As much as I like the iPhone 5 it could be better. The "s" models are usually better anyways.

I know what you mean. Except that isn't a concept for the iPhone. It actually does it exist. Linky here. It's a third party company that specializes in mods.

If I did get an iPhone I'd love to give them it and my ipad mini and get the coloured blue. That would be awesome

I rarely pay attention to rumours. Instead I have this novel approach of buying what I think is best at the time I need it, and enjoying the heck out of it, then repeat when I need a new one. This has served me very well so far. Still loving my iPhone 4 and iPad 3, don't feel a need to contribute to the "rat race."
Oh I know I can't rely on rumours, kind of why I asked the opinions of you kind folk. Im a really impatient person so I don't think I will be waiting for the next iPhone. I would be happy with a 4s so I wouldnt mind being a phone out of date for a year or so. Thanks for the reply.

The average number of days between new iPhone model releases is 338. It has only been 105 days (a little over 3 months) since the iPhone 5 has been released.

So I think that it's safe to say that buying an iPhone 5 now wouldn't be a problem...or you can wait approx. another 233 days (7.77 months) for the next iPhone model to be released!
