Rumors are undeniably strong indicating that regardless of what the next iPhone is actually called or numerically sequenced it’s going to have a slightly different form factor allowing for a taller 4" screen.

The bright side of these cloud of rumors (and subsequent rumor-motivated video creations) is that we won’t have to wait much longer to find out what the next iPhone is going to be all about.
