Which rumored Apple iPhone 7 feature are you most excited about?


Apple is expected to announce two new iPhones in less than a month at its biggest event for the year. Meanwhile, we are bombarded with leaked pictures of shells and dummy units of those upcoming phones, all convincingly driving one point: there will be no re-design this time around. Apart from a minor change bringing more discreet antenna lines in the new iPhones, the two upcoming phones will mostly look just like the iPhone 6s family, which looked almost exactly like the iPhone 6 series.

Don't be so quick to write the iPhone just yet, though. Despite Apple's excellent track record with new designs, the company is also known for working relentlessly on new features that work smoothly and are mostly bug-free. This is the type of gradual hard work that has brought the company to where it is now.

And if you look deeper, there is a few expected and rumored things about this new iPhone that sound exciting. We've summed them up right below, and we're looking forward to you telling us your favorite. And if none of them is exciting for you, let us know your thoughts why and what would make a new iPhone exciting these days, all in the comments below.

Rumor based poll. What can I say? Is like expecting all the good things from Trump just because some think he'll do it.

Hey, can you guys stop brining politics (and religion) into these forums. Everytime I see trim or Hillary name I cringe and remembering that one of these clowns are gonna run the country makes me sad and ruins my day. Politely, AlikMalix.

Politics is everywhere...I'm just having fun. But coming back to reality, the future looks hazy except for the hard core supporters.

That's fair.

As if Hillary would produce any better results?

Offense*

29. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Actually, you are both right. But offense is used in US English, offence is used in British English. Same goes for humor/humour, color/colour,etc.

This after I almost typed "aluminium" in a comment about the Nexus 6P.

47. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

Haha that is British English version so correct :) Most countries outside US learn the British variant. But American movies and music has influenced quite a lot.

I'm excited to see how well they will implement the dual camera setup.

Agreed, I've been disappointed with HTC, LG and Huawei's implementations Hopefully Apple's is more polished and brings better results

What disappoints you about the LG implementation one out of interest? I find the wide angle camera excellent, plus seamless switching between them when zooming, even during video. More fps for slomo, and manual controls on video would be more icing, but the wide angle concept I think is a huge win.

LG's only allows you to take wide angle shots, which is pretty nice for the few situations where its needed or when a panoramas takes too much time But I prefer panoramas as quality is better and time isn't that bad now days I want a dual camera setup that seamlessly improves image quality of most the photos I take In particular, one that gives me better dynamic range, as that where IMO phone cameras can have the most improvement at the moment

PA, you all pride yourself in being a mobile-centric site, but years have passed and polls still do not work on your mobile site. Is there any push to get that working?

The only things that are remotely interesting about it to me, as a current iPhone 6 user, are better camera (even though the one on the 6 is still very good), more RAM as I'm still on 1GB and... That's about it. The RAM isn't a big issue on my current phone so it's only a minor improvement anyway. As someone due an upgrade there has been very little of interest about this phone. Even the dual camera is just for the phablet users, Apple seem to forget one of their trump cards is the 4.7" model as it's smaller than all the main competitor's models and that's something many people like about it. That should be the flagship and have any new features available to the larger model (space can always be found, they could always remove the 3.5mm jack to free up some room - oh wait!)

But the new IPhone is going to be so much thinner! Think how good that will be!

I don't even think it's going to be thinner! :D Jony Ive is a tit. His thinness obsession benefits no-one, one design element overriding all others.

Jony Ive should be a fitness instructor.

Exactly. I don't even think the phone will be thinner. In fact wager to say that the phone will be chubbier than before. Don't know where all these guys are getting the thinner rumor from. Even every leak so far has stated otherwise and even the prototypes, dummys have been shown to be fatter. Honestly, in as much as I like apple products, they've really fallen so hard in the interest and design department of things. Who ever thought a day will come where the galaxy note will ever out design the iphone and virtually outclass it in every way possible? Johnny I've is such an idiot tbh, he and tim cook. The only thing apple/iphone has over android/samsung at this point is the os and the die hards tbh..

Thing is it's not even just Samsung, the copycat Chinese companies like Huawei and Meizu are now out-iPhoning the iPhone with their latest designs. Every time I try an Android device there are things that irritate me about it compared to iOS, even on the S7 Edge my friend has, there are little slowdowns or stutters doing some things, ads popping up on the browser (I'm sure there are fixes but every bit extra you have to add to fix something it gets more like a PC which gets bogged down over time). But in the hardware stakes there aren't any complaints at all really, design was always Apple's thing and they've lost it. As much of a cliché as it is - Steve Jobs WAS Apple it seems.

Jimrod, I get an android device a chance every two years (my upgrade cycle) and the hype that the android people make regarding the best of the best of android is living up to a strong "meh"... Every time it's conversations go like this: "I though android had this ______?" The response - "oh you need this other android phone". But I like this feature on this phone that the other doesn't have" response all round off to "well, then you can root" or "I carry two phones, you can too". WTF. Maybe I'm just used to Apple, and it's own features like find my friends, apps, iTunes, FaceTime, iMessage and so on. You cannot be excited about new android version when you have an android device - you aren't getting it (but you can be excited about new iOS version because you're 100% guaranteed to get it with 99% of all features). Oh then "get a Nexus" they say, and here we go again.

Yeah, I agree - my group of friends has a few techy people and we always like to compare phones, there are bits we like and don't about each but I'm never wowed by the latest and greatest from Android (iPhone's are the same but nothing is enticing me enough to make the switch). We were even comparing cameras last week between the S7 Edge and iPhone SE and again there wasn't some big difference, the screen on the S7 obviously very nice compared to the SE but mostly due to the size difference, the images themselves were pretty close. It's all the little things - I design speakers for a living and have some new Bluetooth models I've been testing, one thing that's surprised me is that a friend's S6 Edge didn't sound anywhere near as good over Bluetooth (despite having aptX that the iPhone doesn't), much harsher - and then the same with the Sony phone (not sure which exact model) another friend had, even tinnier in-fact yet audio is supposed to be one of its strengths! This doesn't show up in any spec comparison but it's there, just one example of things the iPhone seems to do better for me.

I agree with all ya guys. I'm a fan of iOS and iPhones - but not happy with design as of late. Apple needs to hire one of these concept artists showing off their renditions. Johnny is done - he's getting fatter while making phones thinner - such a hypocrite, lol.

I'm actually interested in the supposed double speakers on the bottom now that the headphone jack is gone (again supposedly) and I'm also looking forward to see if they improved the camera/ photo quality. I'm not expecting much out of the battery life department but hey maybe they'll surprise us.
