    Introducing the iPhone 6. The first iPhone designed for the exclusive purpose of reducing Samsung's market share.

      Or meeting demand.

      "People don't know what they want before they have it" only works for new lines of products, disruptive innovation. When you reached the 7th iteration of a product that billions of people use every day, you have to start listening to them.

        Am I the only one who remembers Apple fanboys lording it over Android fanboys because superior Apple products only had one (two, when the iPad came) screen size to develop for?

    While I personally prefer the smaller displays of iPhone 5 compared to the larger Androids.. this is what you get when you poke fun at competition for cheap laughs instead of minding your own business. They've done the same with the NFC chip in the past and suddenly now invented Google Wallet 3 years after Google.

      Speaking of poke fun at competition for cheap laughs, I think Samsung is actually pretty aggressive by all count.

      I don' think I need to remind you the series of ads where they portrait people that uses iPhone are either sheeps or just hipsters.... Not only they made fun of the brand, they actually made fun of the users too...

    The 4 was the ideal screen size. The should have stuck to their guns and focused on reducing thickness.

      That's the most disappointing thing I've seen during this whole keynote. It's like they're not even trying anymore.

      • "Jony, I can't tap that button. The phone is too big."
      • "Nonsense! It's a perfect 5.5" mini-tablet! Double tap the bottom of the phone so that the top will slide down to the bottom, so you can go back to the top to press that button. One tap simplified into 3 taps."

    As a Nexus user I think it's about time they adapted.

      I was a long time iPhone kind of guy but decided to try out a Nexus 5 for about six months. Going back to the 5S made me wish I had a bigger screen. Couldn't be happier with the announcement.

    The best ratio was the 4 but they've to do a new phone every two years and they're forced to change its screen dimension.

    This does not feels like a move that Apple would do. Times have changed for sure. The iPhone 6 and 6+ are catch up products, What happened to "leap ahead" ?

    The iPhone 5 is an ergonomic phone, iPhone 6 not, tendinitis in coming...

    To be fair "Reachability" seems to solve this problem quite well.

    I wonder if the iPhone 6s will be slightly smaller to accommodate the people who love the iPhone 4 and/or 5.

    We should also take a look at how Samsung tried to solve the same problem:

    In my opinion Apple has a much more elegant solution to the problem (both visually and interaction).

    Duh!

    Break your thumb in two places and stretch it. Then let it set and viola; no more problems.
