My predictions:

Still the same screen size and resolution with IGZO and image quality improvements
Faster processor (custom design)
Faster graphics
12 Mpx camera with improved post processing
Much better battery life
Slightly thinner
NFC for Passbook and new features competitors don't have
Mobile payment and secure authentication
No inductive charging (pointless and makes the phone thicker)
Improved Siri and a couple gimmicky features you may or may not use
UI changes for the sake of change just to shut up the whiners
What do you mean by custom design lol. Clown.

I would tend to think we will get:

-Faster Processor
-Slightly better battery life
-Camera Upgrade
-NFC as the "big" feature (like Siri was for the 4S)

Apple has run out of motivation to create... or so it seems.

Instead they are enjoying the safe, take no chances position of replicating the same flat slab shape, with it's "proven track record".

Held back by their very conservative "keep it simple, sell it to everyone" thinking, and the convincing position they hold... "it's not about specs". It seems that there is indeed little reason to change.

Yet that won't stop them from making the real changes to their sales pitch to ramp up the buzz... a proven method to keep those sales rolling.

Highly doubt the iPhone will get a redesign next year. Im guessing use of liquid metal in 2014 or if not, 2016.

Was this supposed to be a response or is it just another soapbox rant? You have the floor to say what you want and instead you launch in some weak spined defeatist rhetoric. It sounds more like you have run out of motivation rather than Apple.

Well, whatever Apple decides to do with the future of the iPhone with regard to upgrades, I'll discover it in some 2 to 3 years.

My current upgrade from the original iP to the iP5 is fantastic. Hopefully, this new device will serve me as well as the previous.

At this point the iPhone is coming along nicely.

I don't anticipate any form factor changes until the revision after next which may or may not use Liquid Metal in a more substantial way.

I'd like to see NFC not because I think NFC is anything more than a buzzword but who knows what can be done.

I'd like to see 802.11ac for Wifi.

I'd like to see LTE Advanced

I'd like to see 128GB options.

I'd like to see a camera with more optical zoom

I'd like to see support for taking RAW photos.

I'd like to see an A7 processor with PowerVR Rogue graphics and HEVC support

I expect them to keep making custom CPU designs like that.

I don't see this happening. I think they will focus on quality refinement vs. size bump.

Hands down you got the explanation but you couldve just skipped that part - I mean sure there's plenty of people who can understand but in the same time you are writing hieroglyphs for the majority of the forum members. Just sayin'.

Let's just say: Apple will keep having a very powerful iPhone that is also very energy-efficient, allowing to have performance that competes with the fastest (and often bulkiest) Android phones while maintaining a very compact form factor.

The fact that the iPhone 5 is currently a beast of performance while being super compact and portable is the result of the hieroglyphs I had previously written .

Wall street already saying Tim Cook hasn't come up with something new since Steve jobs death. I would have to say that the next IPHONE has some major changes such as ;

NFC
New Size
Gaming features, such as the vibrate touch screen etc
and a new MYSTERY FEATURE
IOS 7

It will be the iPhone 5S, they won't change into a new design next year. The changes in terms of design and features will come from iOS 7 next year.

I doubt they will get rid of the iconic home button but I think you are probably correct about the other predictions
