    With the new iPhone being an incremental "S" upgrade this year. We all know that the S has stood for "Speed and Siri" but what does it stand for this year? I thought today that with all the very heavy rumors of a fingerprint scanner on the new iPhone it may likely stand for Security this time around.

    Any thoughts?

    PS. You heard it here first!

    I did hear it here first. Makes sense. Did the 's' ever really stand for anything, at least officially?

    Yes. Phil Schiller said the S stood for speed when he announced the 3GS at the WWDC.

    "S"ecurity would be laughable in the wake of all this NSA BS. Nothing connected to the internet is "secure".

    Yup. Not what I meant. The included fingerprint scanner would add security. I mentioned nothing of cellular or internet connections.

    S always stood for speed, now it just stands there.

    There is a post on another thread with a quote from Cook saying it stood for Siri.
