Please Get the Name Right: iPhone 6

This is a open letter to all those that keep on using the term "iPhone 5" to refer to the upcoming iPhone. I am surprised by how many of you are out there, people like the writers from the tech blog BGR. 

The upcoming iPhone will be the "iPhone 6"! See and count:
  • Original iPhone
  • iPhone 3G
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4S
  • Upcoming iPhone
The iPhone 4S was the "iPhone 5". Furthermore, in terms of product names, Apple will mimic the iPod, which is what we saw with the iPad too. That means the upcoming iPhone will just be called the "iPhone". The differentiation will be through the use of the word "generation". Once the newest iPhone comes out, it will be the current generation iPhone. 

So please no more iPhone 5 talk. I get what you are saying, but it sounds so wrong...

I know... I don't understand Apple. I'm right and Apple is wrong.
