Thumbs up What features will Apple add to the iPhone 5 S⃣ ?

With the new rumor of pre-production... what do you think they're producing?

I highly doubt this will happen, but the addition of a 128GB model would be incredible.

No, that would require a leader with a set of balls willing to risk everything on demanding his vision of perfection, and he my friend, is gone.

Can you add -more durable body-more durable finish?

I say faster processor.

Really none of these things matter to me. If it were a better camera I can see myself being suckered into buying it, but otherwise I am happy.

Hopefully they'll fix the problems with the 5 (scuffing, I heard people complained about it bending or something, etc), maybe add NFC for s**ts and giggles, expand LTE range, maybe add native AM/FM radio (that'd be nice so if I don't have any reception [natural disaster? i had no reception during Sandy and if we didn't have a radio at home we would've been screwed] I can listen to the radio) and other stuff like that.

Can't figure out how to add a poll option... just vote for Teleportation if you want the better finish.

7 people picked 128gb storage option, but only 4 picked lowest model having 32gb of storage!

Do you think that they will release a $499 128gb as well!? I for one think that is very unlikely :/

I would have thought 32 becoming base will be key this year (massive MP camera, 1080p video, super large apps) with 128gb being the third option only being a possibility.

I can see a 128gb iPad this year, not sure about iPhone.

I hope they add WIDTH!

No need in more meory unless Apple gives us a FILE/Folder option where we can store our own docs and files. But that ain't going to happen!

If the next iPhone does not include Teleportation, I am switching to S3.

I think the 5S will just be a maintenance release.
  • They'll fix most of the software issues with iOS 7 and throw in a couple bones that most people won't use.
  • Re-manufacture the case with harder anodized aluminum with will solve two issues: Finish will last like a Mag light and it won't bend in half when you sit down with it in your pocket.

Those are the main reasons I passed on the 5, but will be enough for me to get a 5S.

the iPhone 5S will look exactly like the iPhone 5 but have upgraded internals.

i hope we see a bigger iPhone soon though, because I really like screen on the S3.

I sincerely hope that NFC is not included, and if it is, that it is not touted as a major feature.

As of right now, it is 99% useless outside the 48 contiguous United States (and infact, useless in many of them anyway) for 'paypass', and the only other remarkable feature of NFC is Bump, a feature which I can install on my phone without NFC.

The Vice President of iPhone Thickness said it will certainly be thinner.

That's enough to pump fanboys up.

How do you think they will improve the back camera? More megapixels? Is that an improvement??

Maybe 12MP camera? They have always improved the camera for the 'S' models.

Faster processor. *As if A6 isn't fast enough*

Better LTE coverage.

iOS 7 (Of course)

Some other iOS 7 feature exclusive only to the iPhone 5S.

Phone will be the same width. So those that want a wider phone, give it a break, it will not happen..... Period.

New iPhone 5s will probably have a fingerprint reader, slightly better camera sensor for the back and front, not a 10 or 12 MP since that does not really amount to an improvement, and maybe a slightly faster processor A6X or even an A7. That will be it.
