I guess they could always make it "faster", but my I5 is already fast enough that I don't think I could really tell a difference.

I think the camera is already pretty darn good. I could see them doing something to get rid of the "purple haze" problem. And this does indeed exist b/c mine does it when held at the right angle towards a bright light source.

Battery? Outside of improving the software, they would have to add more physical battery, which would increase the weight. Not sure they want to do that, but the i5 is so light, it's almost too light. I think they could add some battery and not hurt the phone.

The screen size won't change. I would love to see a 4.3, 4.8 screen, but that just isn't Apple's business plan...........yet. Like someone else said, I could see the iPhone 6 getting a bigger screen though. That is pefect bc that is close to when I can upgrade again.

I really like the i5, so I'm not going to care about the minor updates to the i5s. I will simply wait to my contract is up in 6/14 and check out my options.

About the same time we can realistically expect people to stop talking about it a year before it comes out.

That's really all I think, they need an A7 to make this a worthwhile update.
This.

This seems like a nice little upgrade for a S model. I'm looking forward to the colors.

and alot will be locked into a 2 year contract

That really doesn't effect a lot of people on At&t since they allow the subsidized upgrades. You could easily sell the 5 and and buy a 5S and actually make a profit or break even.

ignoring that fact though everyone else would suffer from the problem you described

5S will have iOS7 which will continue to bore millions. It will have a more durable finish and perhaps a harder aluminum so it doesn't bend so easy. And of course better build quality.

It won't have a better battery, because they would have done that when they first designed the iPhone 5 (and could have made it a tad thicker to last longer). They chose thinness over usefulness.

We can realistically expect the next iPhone to be boring and conservative.
