What Are You Hoping To See In The Next IPhone?

So the next iPhone (6), will likely be a more radical change than the most recent 5S. I have a 5 currently and will be due for an upgrade right about the time the 6 (or whatever it will be called) comes out.


So my question for you current iPhone users is: What enhancements would you really like to see in the next iPhone?


Personally, I would like to see a SLIGHTLY larger screen, but I don't want one as big as most of the phones now. Some of the new ones are too big and more of a tablet than a phone.

Secondly, I'd like to see a better camera (as I'm sure most do).

Third, I'd like to see additional colors available (like the current 5C, but in non-plastic form). Coming out with a Gold one was a great idea. Now I hope they expand on that and offer a wide array of colors to choose from. However, I'm probably dreaming with this one.

Other than that, the typical upgrade in processor to increase speed is nice, but those are the main couple of things I'd like to see.


So, again, what would YOU like to see?

I'd like to see a more innovative product that's not a recycled version of previous versions.

What was an iPhone 5 but a iPhone 4s with a larger screen? What is an iPhone 5s or 5c but an iPhone 5 with better processing capacity and colorful covers?

The iPhone itself was innovative (combining a phone with the iPod). What's the next step?

Adding a phone feature to the iPad Mini would be a huge hit. Imagine being able to talk and take notes in a better fashion. Now that's something I'd invest in. Granted, it would come with a bluetooth device or speaker, not hold it to your head like a phone.

Any bigger and you'd have a tablet. The Galaxy note, for example, is nothing but a mini tablet IMO.

You're not buying a phone for its camera capacity so it's understandable that the phone's camera capacity lags. The main function is communication. A camera is simply a plus.

You know you can change the covers through those third party phone stores...my sister changed the cover of her iPhone 4s to light blue.

How about a battery that can allow one to use the apps on their phone for more than a few hours before needing a charge?

I use my iPhone camera MUCH more than any digital camera I've ever owned. The convenience of having a good quality camera always with me is a huge plus.

Transporter. Replicator. Holodeck generator. That'll do for the next release.

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking of as an app for a future iPhone and other smartphones--the "Transporter" app that would enable me to teleport anywhere on Earth. With this app, I could map the exact location to which I want to go, then activate the teleporter.

This app would also allow me to program preset destinations so that I could quickly teleport to a preset location in an emergency or in a hurry.

Exactly! The best camera is the one you have with you.

An SD Card slot. Either that or a sensible capacity (128Gb or greater) at the entry level.

Apple needs to stop charging $100 for $12 worth of solid state storage. Then I might look at them again.
