The problem Apple has is the accessories. If Apple does what's right and makes it wider, then it definitely won't fit in the docks/speaker systems and that means that manufacturers will have to make yet more new devices for the new phone. Apple is in a lose lose situation unless they include a dock with each phone that then connects to the speaker system or whatever so the current models can be discontinued and new accessories made only once.
