Apple’s ‘iPhone 4S’ Will Be Only New Model This Year

Despite numerous rumors to the contrary, Apple will only launch one iPhone model this fall and it will be a modest upgrade that closely resembles the current iPhone 4.

Keep up with the latest technology news on the FOX Business Technology Facebook page.

In a note to investors on Wednesday, Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair says that Apple will hold a special event between September 28th and October 5th to unveil several new devices. Only one of those devices will be an iPhone, however, and Blair says it will be an incremental update as opposed to the redesigned iPhone 5 that has been rumored on multiple occasions.

"We expect the focus of the new iPhone will be iOS 5, a speedier A5 processor and a higher resolution 8 MP camera with a small possibility of a larger 4 inch screen,” Blair wrote. “We believe the casing will be largely similar to the iPhone with some particular modifications to the antennae [sic]. We don’t expect a second, dramatically different iPhone to accompany this as we don’t think Apple needs to have 3 models in the market to address the high end, mid-tier and low end since the iPhone 4 (with memory lowered to 8 GB) will drop to $99 and effectively attack those markets.”

The analyst believes that in spite of the anticipation generated over the past few months by the possibility of a redesigned iPhone 5, launching two new models wouldn’t make sense for Apple. “Why would Apple bump up only the processor specs of the iPhone 4 in addition to a newly designed iPhone 5 if the goal is to sell it into the pre-paid market at a lower cost?” Blair wondered in his note. “A 4S would simply cost more and a 4S itself wouldn’t create a mid-tier market unless it was priced at $99 and the iPhone 4 went to $49 with the new iPhone at $199. We see this scenario as unlikely.”

But Wedge Partners does expect another device to be unveiled at Apple’s upcoming event: a 3G-enabled iPod touch. Blair says the iPod’s cellular data option will work just like the iPad, allowing users to purchase data plans on a month-to-month basis with no contractual obligations. The notion of a 3G iPod touch aligns with earlier rumors.

Blair’s iPhone estimates remain at 24-25 million units shipped in Apple’s September quarter, and he sees shipments growing to 27 million units in the December quarter. Calendar-year totals will come in at 91 million units according to the analyst’s estimates, which would represent growth of 92% compared to 2010 and will include sales by new carrier partner Sprint, which he expects to sell 4.5 million iPhones over the next year. Blair thinks Apple will begin accepting pre-orders for its next-generation iPhone within days of holding its media event, which will take place on October 4th according to a recent report.

It's makes a lot of sense. Can't see myself jumping on this unless it's bigger and even then I'd have to think about it. Why waste the upgrade?

I wish we would be able to use the 4's on Sprint's network (the Verizon one obviously) once this drops...

I could just dupe a n*gga for his iPhone fast

"ay man just trade me your iPhone for my Evo the sh*t is about to be worth $50 once the 5 drops"

I wish I was wrong, but I called it months ago. 4s first, 5 in 2012. iOS5 has too many bugs to iron out to make it in time for October, and they're probably gonna be doing last minute improvements.

I love my iPhone 4, I'm in no rush to upgrade.

Why are y'all complaining?

AT&T/Verizon users shouldn't even care about this sh*t. It's us Sprint users that would like to get into the world of iOS, majority of us just wanna leave Android.

I would MUCH rather cop a Verizon iPhone off a n*gga, unlock the bi*ch (if I have to) and tell Sprint I got a new phone to go to instead of upgrading to a 4S this year and then DROOLING over the 5 next year.

I'm sure your phone doesn't need to be constantly plugged in, and when it isn't, lasts 5 minutes with use before shutting down. I was out of country until February and decided not to get a 4, b/c a 5 would most likely drop this summer...I don't have to tell you it's almost October and THIS is the news I get? A lousy 4S? ...THIS is why I'm complaining.

. I bet this a conceit that they didn't expect androids to progress this fast with lte and large screens and fast processors. Hence they didn't drop a new iPhone to appear being behind in technology. a new iPhone with a smaller screen and no lte coulda been a hard sell to most non appleheads.
