iPhone 5S rumours hit new heights of craziness, get ready for the iPhone ‘Math’

iPhone 5S rumours hit new heights of craziness, get ready for the iPhone ‘Math’If you’ll allow us to bask in our collective glory for a moment, we’ve let a fair few iPhone 5S rumours fly by of late, partly because they’re mostly saying the same thing, and partly because some of ‘em are clearly nonsense.

But this one – this one right here – clearly takes the proverbial biscuit. If it comes true, I’ll eat Jan’s bass guitar.

Thanks to Commerical Times and China Times, we have some utterly fantastic iPhone 5S rumour nonsense.

Firstly, we should expect an iPhone 5S – essentially a souped-up iPhone 5 – in June, which pretty much chimes with what we’ve been hearing to date. So far, so good.

However, it’ll be joined by a second new iDevice. Huh? Brace yourselves for something called the iPhone “Math” (seriously), with a whopping 4.8in display.

To be fair, I’ve been semi-jokingly touting the notion of a 6in iDevice (snugly fitting between the iPhone 5 and iPad mini) for a while, but realistically we don’t expect to see Apple leap to 4.8in as early as June. And that name; the iPhone Math. Genuinely astounding.

Had enough yet? Too bad. Supposedly we should expect a third new iPhone to land in time for Christmas.

What's the point? Well, while iPhone 5S and iPhone Math specs will supposedly include an 8MP camera, the third new iPhone will boast a 12MP rear shooter.

But think about it: listen folks, the iPhone is a hit, so we're gonna make one that can't make calls with a 9.7 inch screen and namel it the iPad.... People were in stitches.
It'd be cool if they made a bezel-free 4.8-incher. The iPad Mini is good at nullifying accidental thumb-action, so it is possible.

Yeah, I'm not into these huge phones, but I'm pretty sure Apple could keep more or less to the current size of handset with a larger screen. Get rid of the side borders and narrow the borders at the top and bottom and that'd get you a bit of extra space for a start, I'd put up with the phone being a touch wider, as in a couple of mm's and that could in theory get them 0.8" extra screen space.

The problem with making the phone wider is they've made big song and a dance about how the phones current width means you can reach all parts of the phone with your thumb, I doubt youll see an iPhone screen size change in the next generation.

I don't buy this rumour at all, the iPad mini had an obvious niche to fill (competing against the 7" tablet) but I can't see where a 4.8" "math" would slot in inbetween the iPhone/iPod and the iPad mini?

They don't mind changing their tune though so don't see their song and dance as huge obstacle.

I'd love a giant sized iPhone. I might be able to switch off of android!

Having a nexus has shown me the future of Android. Its not one that appeals to me.
