    I really hope it's not the '4s' because I would quite like a re-design.. even though I *do* love the iPhone 4... My contract is up next month so will have to see how the pennies are then :yes:

    Ive had the software for ages so nothing new there for me BUT it is brilliant and I kinda forgot that yeah, it'll be a huge deal when it comes out for everyones phone.

    I imagine they'll announce it tomorrow.

    I really hope for a redesign too Josh but Im not sure it's looking promising :unsure:

    That's typical Malcolm. I think Apple threatens them with hot bamboo shoots under the fingernails if they so much as breath a word. :eek:

    Of course, the real truth is that they probably haven't got a clue yet either.

    Remarkable visual on that one! Would loved to have seen your face! :ROFL:

    Tom :)macwave:... is there a market for iPhone life preservers? :unsure:)

    I had a good friend who worked at an Apple store in the US and he swore to me that they usually didn't know anything other than they may get told to expect a delivery and to leave it sealed until date x/y/z.

    They sometimes hear rumours and occasionally get a hint like "no one can have oct 22/23rd off and we'll need a shop floor area for a new display" etc....

    Same things I've heard. Apple is known for it's secrecy. And it's vengeance should anyone open their mouth.

    But it makes for great drama. :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... ohhh... and one more thing...)

    every rumour seems to be saying iphone 4s - 8mpx camera, A5 cpu, 1GB ram and dual worldwide cdma+gsm.... probably a modified antenna as well.

    That's OK but not really the iphone5 I was kinda hoping for ;-) although quite what more I need on a phone is debateable

    Ain't that the truth. :yes:

    I look at my iPhone 4 and ask myself "how can they make it better". Sadly, I don't get much of an answer. Voice recognition would be the only thing that I'd really like and that's rumored to be part of IOS 5. No new iron required.

    Tom :)macwave:... good morning iPhone. Fix my coffee, wouldja? Yeah. Right.)

    IOS5 is brilliant thats for sure. It's a great upgrade for those who havent yet tried it, imessage/text interface is in itself pretty great. Awesome to see when someone has read your message etc . Lots of goodness in ios5 and SURELY that must be out today for everyone? or if not, in the next couple of weeks.

    More for a phone hmmm... maybe a bit lighter but then too light and you start forgetting it. Perhaps edge to edge display but not TOO large or it taxes your thumb stretch-ability. Speed is always nice.. battery life... camera well there's a limit with those tiny lenses so more mpx doesnt bother me.

    Well it's more that the 4s suggests relatively little is new whereas a 5 would've been a larger upgrade. (and indeed so far, there's not much in there to make an upgrade worth doing)

    4G referring to speed of data down load, currently we are at 3G.

    S referring to speed of the phone itself...
