Hardware wise, a better scratch resistant body.

Software wise, quick settings in notification center and a quick reply like bitesms.

One feature? That won't be enough to get the next iPhone. But a bigger screen would be nice, doubt it'll happen this year though.

Battery.

Battery, battery battery battery battery.

The iPhone 5's battery sucks, and the Lightning debacle means I can't even buy a battery pack for it.

1) I've never heard of someone that has never gone to a restaurant/grocery store/movie/coffee shop/etc before. You're right, NFC is useless for everybody because you've never left your house.

2) Email is dead? I thought you bought everything online? How do you receive order confirmations and receipts?

I guess if you tweet and have your head in Facebook all the time they might be useful, I don't know as I rarely use either.
On my previous Android devices, the first thing i did was disable all the widgets. They drain battery life and reduce stability.

I'm sure you are aware that you shooting down every suggestions will annoy people after the 2nd or 3rd time.

It's not what will personally appease Ste Nova.

I don't own the iPhone 5, but I thought the battery was supposed to be better than the 4S?

Ability to delete stock apps. Or the ability to replace defaults with 3rd party apps.

Because not all widgets are pointless crap. You also sound stupid by putting it that way. If iOS allowed widgets, it doesn't mean you have to use them, even though I bet you would once you see that they aren't just useful for social media purposes.

Look at all this "innovation"...

Even if we included everything in this thread (including the holographic strippers) people would still flame for the iPhone "being more of the same".

Ask them what they'd like to see more of though, and it's just the stuff in this thread (and NFC lol...).

The iPhone 5S will get a minor speed bump, maybe more/double storage, and a few new features through iOS 7. Maybe it will get a few new colors? Maybe. Then the iPhone 6 might have a fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, a better camera, and a few software enhancements.... That's as "innovative" as it's going to get.

The iPhone is a grand slam. It obliterates andy single Android phone in terms of actual sales (not sales to carriers, sales to consumers... sorry Samesung). No need to radically change ANYTHING.

I hope Apple DOESN'T put in NFC... just because it's funny to see people whine about a feature over 99.5% of users would never utilize.

Pop up video (can't remember exact name, S Video???) that Galaxy has, where you can continue watching video whilst doing anything! Mailing, texting,surfing the web!!!

I think Samsung may have that patented though

Do you ever leave the house? People that live their lives outside of their homes buy things at stores, like groceries, coffee, and beer.

E-mail is dead?? What world do you live in?

How many times do you use picture in picture on your TV? Pop up video is useless.

I have use it. And it's still crap that takes up most of the screen space. Not for me.

That is not a good comparison. PIP on a TV is the same as wanting to watch 2 videos at the same time on your phone, which is not the purpose of what he is stating. I don't think it's that useless to quickly respond to a text or check an email while watching a video on YouTube.

Wireless charging. On I side note: I think it's funny that with how much people complain about how the iPhone and iOS is boring, and then when there's a thread asking what should be added, everyone says widgets or idk. Not a bad thing, just think it's kinda funny.

Improved iMessage:

- allows you to send and receive text messages using an iPad (using an iPhone over iCloud)
- delivers messages on time <_< at the minute Facebook messenger is infinitely more stable.

you've not used http://www.tesco.com/ to buy food and beer then?

email is dead for me and my friends the same way msn messenger, yahoo messenger, skype, aim, icq is, it all about right now instant, fb chat is the main method of communication

email for work is still a good tool, but in work i'm getting more and more lync usage for simple stuff that would have been one liner emails
