Apple Store Down

    The lack of photos/leaks of a wearable product doesn't mean much to me. It just convinces me further that Apple deliberately leaks iPhone photos (or at the very least doesn't stop it) while staying super-hush-hush about larger reveals. This sort of stuff just reeks of stealthy marketing and I think people are happy to eat it up and imagine they're seeing something Apple doesn't want them to see.

    As for the iPhone upgrades, I don't care much about screen size or even the iOS 8 features. I just want better battery life and I'm also long overdue for a new phone. My volume-down button stopped working a long time ago and my screen has a hairline crack right down the middle.

      I too believe that Apple deliberately leaks pictures to build hype - it's an excellent Marketing technique to build hype, for a company like Apple anyway

      Screen size being a "big seller" for the iPhone 5/5S was one of the reasons I didn't buy. Sure the design was different to the 4/4S, but I'm not interested in a larger phone. Granted I'll have to cave in, and the iPhone 5 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but will the size get out of hand (no pun intended!) - I'm not sure.

      Lack of photos could just bc they haven't started production yet, due to their later ship date. The leaks tend to come from the factories, not from the US.
