Technically, it was 16 months, not quite a year and a half. I think fall 2012 is the most likely. They have always been about 12 months apart up until this release.Xanthous said:Okay, I agree with this post.
Just for the record. Apple took a year and a half to release the 4S. Releasing the next iPhone may take 2 years. If they release the 6th iPhone in 2013, it is possible there will be 5g networks (even though they're not expected until 2020). Therefore there is still a slight chance that the 6th iPhone could be named the iPhone 5.
Anyway thanks Europa, and I would like the title to be changed to "iPhone 6 Predictions" if possible.
My question is, why was the first iPhone named the 2G? since it was on a 3G network?
If that was the case, they would call it the iPhone 4G for LTE or iPhone 5G for the 5th generation cellular network, not iPhone 5. But like you said, the 5th generation cellular network is too far off for that to be a reality.
You're welcome. I'll change the thread title for you.
The first iPhone was simply called "iPhone." After the iPhone 3G was released, people gave the first iPhone arbitrary names to distinguish it from the iPhone 3G. 2G, V1 and orginal iPhone are the most common. The first iPhone didn't have 3G capability. It ran on the Edge network.
