    They have nailed the screen, and battery life what else could you wish for?

    For me I'm hoping that they can shrink the bezels, and make the iPad 5 much lighter.

    I know the bezels are forecast, but making it lighter while maintaing great battery will be a challenge.

    What are you guys hoping for?

    A7X Processor

    I would like to see an A7X processor (Quad core, With quad core graphics, unlike the dual core iPad 4), a better bezel, Colour options (Red, Green, Blue) and a better design and colours for the smart covers. (Even colour the hinge) Intel i5's would be nice :D

    A more than decent support for stylus input like Wacom does - it would require an overhaul of the digitizer - but Samsung has been showing the world for a nr. of years that it is possible and we are toying around with half a**ed solutions, each one of them less than perfect.

    A replaceable display. Doesn't have to be by us. I'd be fine if it was an in store only thing but we have too many oops on set and I'm really getting bored with spending afternoons restoring etc. it's been a godsend to me that the iPhone 5 can have just the display replaced.

    My number 2-5 or so would be even better oleophobic coatings, something to make them a bit more readable outside, better sound for the speakers. Better battery and faster processor if that is possible without making the battery terrible (I'd settle for faster processor with the same battery life if I had to I just don't want less). More RAM or whatever to make it less crash crazy. Smaller touch spots to get finer draw lines and perhaps add more handwriting options, and I wouldn't scoff at some pressure sensitivity but I don't expect it to be hundreds of levels like a Wacom. A dozen or so would be a fine start.

    Number one wish? It won't happen this year, but I would like an ~11" diagonal screen with a slim bezel and the same overall size as the current 9.6" iPad.

    2. Same form factor as iPad Mini, including the dual speakers
    3. A7 chip (quad core graphics)
    4. 8MP iSight camera
    5. As light as it can be given points 1. & 2. above.
    6. Fingerprint scanner embedded in home button.

    iOS 7 additions:

    7. All the iPhone/iPod Touch iOS apps added - weather, voice memos, passbook, compass, calculator etc
    8. Panoramic photos

    That it comes out tomorrow :D



    But seriously I've never owned an iPad and I intend for the Ipad 5 to be my first (or a retina mini if that impresses me more).

    Mostly I just want continued improvements in iOS (so it is more than a phone OS) and the ability to use an active stylus so it can replace pen & paper.

    Would love to have it on iPad 5 but apparently there are less chances as we mostly don't get from Apple what we wish for :)

    Give it the dimensions and heft of the iPad 2. Otherwise, it's already great.

    iPad mini has stereo speakers, so the chances of iPad 5 getting them as well, are pretty high.

    My # 1 wish is for an enrtry level 32GB model. I know it's unlikely to happen in the next refresh, but it sure would be a nice surprise if we do see it.

    I echo the same wish list. Would also like an SD slot but hold no illusions that will happen...

    To be able to manage an iPod Nano with the iPad.

    Come on Apple, please. It's not like I am asking for a pony.

    The ipad 5 should in a sense be a consumation of the initial ipad vision--especially if it weighs in under .8 lbs. I am not sure where ipads go in the future, which is why apples stock is suffering. The mobile "expansion" is sort of played out

    Thicker. The bloody thing is hard to hold on to. iPad 1 was great in that regard, the new versions are a mess.
