Next iPhone to Have Worldwide LTE Support
The next-generation iPhone will support LTE 4G in multiple countries around the world, reports the Wall Street Journal. Citing sources familiar with Apple's plans, the Journal said that the iPhone will work on the LTE 4G networks of operators in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, though the Journal's sources didn't specify which network operators. The next iPhone will not support LTE across all bands in all countries, which is impractical from an engineering perspective (36 different spectrum bands are in use around the world for LTE). In the U.S., the two largest LTE networks, currently run by AT&T and Verizon Wireless, operate in the 700MHz band. Sprint is deploying LTE in the 1900MHz band, while T-Mobile will deploy LTE in the 1700MHz band. The Journal also reported that the next iPhone will have a "slightly larger screen." Apple has scheduled a press conference on September 12, where it is expected to reveal the new smartphone.

It need to be a radical re-think from the ground up...
They can't be satisfied with these minor, incremental changes any more...a longer battery life, a faster processor, a slightly better camera, they need to rethink everything from the ground up...
The next iPhone needs to be as radical a change in philosophy as Windows 8 is from Windows 7.....only this will make the iPhone the 'it' device again.....
If they make yet another minor update....Android wins and iOS loses...
That's the amount of applications Apple has.

How Do They "Get Away With It"?
Apple's delivery on the other hand has all the excitement of Christmas morning until you realize your parents simply took your old toys, re wrapped them, and presented them to you as "NEW".
If the "leaked" videos and the developer specs are accurate, then I feel like a chump for waiting when I could of gone out and purchased a GSIII two months ago! Oh, that's right, Apple is trying to ban the GSIII!
Thank you, Apple for eliminating my choices as a consumer, and investing in costly litigation instead of product development.
How about ...
