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?
There was a discussion / thread that went on about that. I found and posted:

During the Q&A session at D10 today Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked an interesting question about how his company names its products. While many have speculated as to why Apple called the fifth-generation iPhone the “4S” back in October, Cook confirmed that the smartphone was named after its flagship feature, Siri.

“And if you keep the same industrial design, as in the case of the 4S, some people might say it stands for Siri or speed. We were thinking of Siri when we did it. For the 3GS we were thinking of speed.”
