Mine is due to the contract as well. I never got the first iPhone as the edge network was a bummer. So then I got the iPhone 3GS and now the 4S, next will be 5S.

Same here also. I've had the 4 and the 4S and I think the 4S was a great upgrade. I'm hoping the same holds true for the 5S as well. Patiently waiting for some pocket-sized LTE.

I don't have "fast-swipe" issue with my iPhone 5; however, I have had issues with screen not responding when connected to the charger.

No swipe problems

I haven't heard of problems with swipe issues with the iPhone 5, however I have been hearing multiple problems with the battery life. I hope they improve it with the next iPhone. This may make it heavier, however I would prefer a heavier phone with a better battery life then a light one with a bad battery life.

Actually, I think that is normal for the game. I have notice that if you keep your finger on the screen, swipe rapidly across it (while NOT letting go at all), then the screen will become non-responsive until you let go and re-apply your finger. iPhone 5/iPod Touch 5th Gen only.

I want to see a "scan on display" tech. Ya know the old tech support joke about stupid people putting papers onto the display to scan or fax? Build a light sensor into every pixel, enabling instant contact-scan: hold paper/hand/whatever on the screen, display pixels act as localized lighting for each scan pixel, all pixels scan at once. No more need for an external scanner. With clever software, might even be able to turn it into a large-imager lensless camera.

Would like to see someone invent/patent a rear touch panel that allows touch-action on the back of every iphone. This would allow you swipe with only one hand. Boom! I'll make millions.

Why should anyone care really? We are reading rumors right now. Information that may or may not be true and if true, was not meant for public consumption. Apple could very well change to a new touch panel tech in the next gen iPhone and not advertise it. It would not be considered to be a "feature" of any sort. Just a solution to solve 1 problem that Apple thought was important enough to solve in the new iPhone.

I am sure if iPhone 4 Antennagate hadn't been the public PR disaster that it had been, but Apple discovered the problem internally, they still would have fixed and improved the antenna like they did when they released the 4S. They just wouldn't have advertised it like they did at the 4S keynote.

Nope, not seeing it. Good excuse to play Fruit Ninja though.

The way I look at it, if Apple wants to give us a better touch screen, I'm not going to complain.

Wow, they just introduced in cell touch like it was all that. Is the whole panel 0.5 mm thick, or is that just the touch sensor?

And such a tech would be able to see the shape of the pointer great for painting and drawing apps. Although they could do that with the rf tech used by the finger print mob they acquired recently.

Too bad blackberry isn't the best my more. They take ***** forever to come out with new devices, so you can have the current version for quite some time. Unfortunately, blackberry sucks! Although I like the design of the 9900/9930, the OS is nauseating at best! I hate paying Apple $1,400 a year for 2 new iPhone devices, at least ( if you go 16gb), just to keep up with current tech!

I am very optimistic about the tech that this rumor addresses. I believe that if they work out the kinks in development then it will offer incredible display quality and virtually no distortion.

A more practical example would be for drawing apps. In the few times I used my iPhone to draw, I definitely noticed the touch event dropping when colouring in objects.

That said, I haven' t noticed any lag with touch response compared to my iPhone 4. I do wish touch screens in the whole industry would improve in terms of touch like Microsoft's proof of concept screen with 1ms lag.

Yes, but I will fall back to my old argument... what is practical for you, isn't practical for everyone.
