4. Identical Pricing

Apple has historically launched new iPhones at the same price as their predecessors. The move has helped improve iPhone adoption and increase revenue for the world’s largest company. Realizing that, why would it change its policy now? Look for identical pricing to come to Apple’s iPhone 5.

5. An Homage to Steve Jobs

According to numerous reports, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs spent little time focusing his efforts on the iPhone 4S prior to his death. Instead, he worked with the iPhone 5. If that’s the case, expect there to be some sort of homage to Jobs when the device launches.

6. An End to Numbered Branding

Although it’s a good idea to use the iPhone 5 branding to discuss the next Apple smartphone, there’s a good chance the company will be dropping the number. As the iPad has shown, Apple seems to want to simply offer an iPad and iPhone and not get into unique names for each device. It follows a similar naming strategy on the Mac side where it calls each version the same name, but adds improved specs and, at times, a new design.

7. The Same Screen Size

Yes, there are countless devices across the mobile space that have bigger screens than the iPhone 5, but it appears that Apple’s next handset will stick with the same 3.5-inch option available in all of its predecessors. For some reason, Apple thinks the iPhone’s display is the perfect size.iphone 5, apple iphone 5
