How would you feel if the iPhone 6 didn't have a bigger screen?

The iPhone 6 is a hot topic right now, especially in the iMore forums. Apple's CEO, Tim Cook recently discussed a bigger iPhone, and while he wouldn't say no to the idea, he also said Apple wouldn't rush one out unless and until they had the technology to do it right. Namely, they didn't just want a big display, they wanted the best display.

What channels would you like to see added to Apple TV?

Over the past little while Apple has improved their Apple TV channel offerings quite a bit and while it seems it's not enough for folks to ditch their cable quite yet, as a product the Apple TV is more compelling than it ever has been especially when you consider the $99 price point. It's pretty much at the point now that if you're already buying your content on iTunes, it's a bit of a no brainer to pick up an Apple TV.

Do you regret getting a gold iPhone 5s?

Ahh, the gold iPhone 5s. We knew it was coming thanks to the many leaks ahead of its official announcement and while many folks had to have it from the get go, there was just as many folks out there who thought it was just a little too much. At launch, they ended up being only available in a pretty limited supply and a few folks went to some extremes to get their hands on one. 

Here we are now, a few months after release and Apple has since ramped up production on the devices and there is an increasing amount of them available making it easier for those who want one to get their hands on one.

But what about those of you out there who got one from the start? As asked in the iMore Forums, does anyone actually regret picking up a gold iPhone 5s? Looking back, would you have rather picked the space grey or silver options?​

Is having an Apple TV enough to cancel cable or satellite TV?

Over the past few years now there has been an ongoing rumor that Apple may be looking into getting into the TV business and with that there's been the obvious rumors of dealings with content companies and cable providers. That said though, there has been an increasing amount of cord cutting happening as well these days wherein people are killing off their cable and satellite packages and just simply going with broadband-only connections and getting all of their content online.

What do you like most about the Apple brand?

At this point it's no secret to many folks that Apple is one the most valuable brands in the world. Back in September, they took over the number one spot on Interbrand’s Best Global Brands report displacing Coca-Cola for the first time in 13 years and with each new release of a product, Apple's brand loyalty shows by way of the line ups outside of Apple stores across the world.

But what do you like most about the Apple brand? What causes you to get in those line ups and often wait hours to be among one of the first consumers out there to get your hands on their latest product? Is it the quality of the end product? Is it the top notch customer service? Ease of use and dependability?

Is the iPod a dying product?

If you tuned into the iMore show last night, we covered the Apple Holiday gift guide but when it came to the topic of iPods we found some of them still had a place in the world. Some, like the iPod Touch were easy recommendations while others, like the iPod Classic we had a tough time suggesting.

Looking back on it, it reminds me of a thread I came across the iMore Forums asking a similar question but placing the whole iPod category itself at the center with the question being, is the iPod a dying product?

What don't you like about iOS 7?

Now that iOS 7 has been around for a while and folks have had a chance to go all in with it, the moonlight phase with some of what it brought might be over.  Sure, there's plenty to love in iOS 7 and we've looked at all of that extensively but what about some of the not so great stuff it brought? 

When upgrading to a new OS there is always 'good' stuff to be had but some folks don't adapt to change all that well and often times, that leads to some frustrations with things that are new. A nice thread popped up in the iMore Forums recently that asks the simple question - What don't you like about iOS 7? - a lot of the answers are really interesting to read through.

Is the iPhone 4S still a good phone?

With the release of the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and finally, the iPhone 5c there's always that 'I must upgrade to the latest' feeling out there but there's still plenty of folks wondering if the iPhone 4S is still a good device to purchase, given that carriers that still offer them are giving them away and resale sites like Craigslist, Kijiji and others have plenty of them for sale.
