What people want to see in the next Apple iPhone

What people want to see in the next Apple iPhone
With rumors continuing to insist that the 7th generation Apple iPhone will be an an incremental update titled the Apple iPhone 5S, USAToday thought it might be an interesting idea to see what the average Joe wants to see on the next iteration of the phone. Houston cop Shynolan Reese would like to see the next Apple iPhone carry a larger screen size. "I want a screen comparable to the Galaxy," says the officer, who asked for the next iPhone to weigh in with a display of at least 4.5 inches. Remember, until the Apple iPhone 5, all iPhone models carried 3.5 inch displays. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 will have a 4.99 inch screen. 

It could be that Dallas based marketing pro Elizabeth Zamora does not know what a widget is. Zamora would like the next iPhone to offer weather information directly on the homescreen when she wakes up in the morning. We would suggest that Ms. Zamora check out Android. Even though iOS 7 is expected to have a re-design of the Apple UI, there is no guarantee that widgets are coming to the Apple iPhone.

Other changes wanted for the next Apple iPhone include wireless charging, something more likely to be seen in next year's new model. Meanwhile, a fingerprint scanner is on the wish list for Washington D.C. resident Brian Carter. That also is something more likely to be seen next year, especially since pictures allegedly showing the home button for the Apple iPhone 5S did not reveal any of the necessary components for such a feature.

So what features would you like to see on the next Apple iPhone?

iOS 7 with a very urgent updated UI. Not to mention, a proper file management system (which is never gonna happen.)

What ever changes we require is not going to be coming in the next iPhone... It will always be the same old UI and the same old screen and the same old logo at the back... This doesnt change anything...

Dude educate yourself, PLEASE.... There is a proper file manager for ios and all you have to do is spend 2 minutes of your time and jailbreak your device Is called iFile. You can also install widgets from Cydia and there are many options to customise your device. You've never seen a Jailbroken ipad?

well u dont need to sh*t on an android for just a proper file manager and widgets lol..u just have to turn the phone on and you have it

Yes but with jail breaking you can make your ipad work like an android device. One way another ( with jailbreaking ) an ipad can pretty much have all the benefits of android. But how exactly are you gonna play (lets say infinity blade or walking dead ) on your android device if the app simply doesn't exist?

Jailbreaking an ipad giives you way more power and features over any android devices rooted or non rooted at any time.

Maybe not... but you'll always jailbreak (root) your android devices for many more features just as we do with ios devices.

exactly, don't expect from iFeaturephone = iConboard to serve any significant innovation.... 1) no copy a file 2) no open any file in any app 3) just iCons from 1990

Why use android when android has apps in space that dont support a lot of devices including new devices yet to be released. I had a samsung gs 3 and everything was fine until a week later when i wanted to install an app, you know what it said? nothing!!! couldn't find it, not supported on the gs3 but supported on other phones like my roommates htc one s. When i went to the desktop version of google play, it said... "not supported on your device" or "your device is not compatible".. You don't think is BS to pay for such expensive items just to find out the apps you want don't work on your $700 android device? right, trust me, a lot of ios users had android devices and experienced the same problem, fact. And a lot of users still like android better than ios, but android is way too far behind when it comes to customer satisfaction, OS smoothness, App compatibility and many more... Period.
