    Might not be used that often but it would be great to have. It's amazing what features we'll take for granted once they've been around for a few generations.

    A specific implementation of those same features is worth protecting. If a company is using someone else's IP, then a suit is in order. If a company's business model is based on "free" usage of someone else's IP, then perhaps that company's business model is unsustainable, and bankruptcy results.

    Choice isn't bad until you decide to insult/annoy others if their choice is different from yours. Do two wrongs make a right? Nope. But it's oddly satisfying.

    + this is a Internet chat board, what fun would it be without trolls and flaming?

    What I want from the iPhone 5S:

    Thumbprint scanner enabled NFC

    32 - 64 - 128 GB storage options at the current price points

    Sapphire crystal screen ( I realize that one is unlikely, but I'd still like it)

    Internal hardware upgrades :cool:

    NFC won't be coming, Apple decided to go against it with Airplay. The storage seems the most likely, although id rather have it on the iPad.

    Only problem with this is you definitely need a lot more space. 16 GB is just NOT enough room for everything anymore even on the iPhone 5.

    If anything, this is when they should make 32 GB the minimum for the 5S. Keep the cheaper iPhone at 8/16/32 GB, and the standard iPhone with insanely better camera at 32/64/128.

    I do hope if they upgrade the camera in the 5S they redesign it to have a smooth re-focus.
    The 4/4S/5 are no good for filming in the respect that changing the focus looks horrid because of the way it's done.

    Except, "Siri" wasn't truly hardware dependent. Developers in the jailbreaking community easily ported "Siri" to unsupported devices.

    Apple has generally tended to announce new features as hardware dependent to sell more devices. That's great, it's business, but a slight slap in the face for us tech savvy enough to know better.

    I'd rather new devices have significant h/w updates aside from slight processor and camera tweaks. NFC would be a big one; whether you agree or not, it's been used and popular for years in Europe and especially Japan. N. America has some catching up to do.

    Actually, this is a feature that's in the iOS 7 beta right now. There's an API that allows for smoother focus shifting.

    It's the fact that it will shoot video in 120 fps that makes it work better, not that it will be natively supported.

    Slowing down a 30 fps video to 7.5 fps (1/4 of the original frame rate) will obviously not look as slowing down a 120 fps to 30 fps (also 1/4 of the original frame rate).

    The apps that exists right now for the iPhone will never give as good results as the Note 2.

    Would be useful for races such as the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb where they go by so fast you barely get a chance to see them!

    Call me whatever name you want but I love Instagram and making 15 second slow motion videos of my food going into my mouth will bring me great joy.

    if Apple does, hopefully they don't do the half-azzed job of it that Samsung did... Read up on how many people's S4 Active phones are dying from water intrusion.

    would like to see this happen

    I love doing videos on the iPad mini or the iPad 4 but I'd like to see more frame-rate features. I'd also like to see auto-focus respond faster.
