Analyst says the iPhone 5S (really iOS) will have a new "killer feature", we certainly hope so

0. phoneArena 18 Mar 2013, 20:11 posted on

HTC, Sony, and Samsung have all had their big reveals for new flagship devices, and Motorola/Google is still a couple months away from Google I/O and whatever announcement is made there. So, that means it's time for analysts to come back out and talk about Apple. The newest bit of "analysis" says that the iPhone 5S (but really iOS) will have a new "killer feature", which seems like a pretty obvious thing for Apple to aim at providing...

Are you seriously saying trying to create a unifying brand is copying...anyone that thinks making a phone black and white was introduced by apple I cant take serioisly ...I can think of multiple devices way before apple that not only came black and white but multiple colours...if the s4 is an equivalent to a 4s upgrade than what is the iPhone 5 cause IMO the s4 has more changes than even the 5.

What's it like to be as crazy as you are? Like, do you make a deliberate effort? Do you have to stay in practice? Do you even know how crazy you are?

Just think about whatever the latest and greatest android feature is, and then give it a cute name. That's what the killer feature will be.

Remember when Apple Maps was going to revolutionize everything?

Yeah, analysts are always right.

You all have it wrong - the killer feature is iMaps finally works correctly. You heard it first on PA!

It's likely just a finger print reader to unlock the phone/sign-in integrated into the HOME button - Oh Joy.

Let's just hope whatever this 'killer feature' is it's far better (read: ready for prime time) than SIRI or Apple Maps, and comes with a nice overhaul of that tired 'iPhoneOS' errr iOS UI they've been using for some 7 years now.

BS article to pump up AAPL, it spiked after this was reported by Barron's. Original article has absolutely no proof, just conjecture.

Apple did NOT invent anything. Everything they created was from another company. They just took ideas that already existed and made them into their own calming they had it first. For people to stand behind a company with that kind of reputation is beyond me....

With what has and what will come out in Android land....its gonna be really hard for Apple, iOS, the iPhone to one up.

WP has Nokia and their innovations.

Hate to say it but the iPhone, iOS really is looking stale. It still sells alot....so does it matter?
