    What chance would you guys give to the following happening on a NORMAL iphone 6s:

    1) Non protruding camera

    2) waterproof

    3) higher mpx camera

    4) 2gb of ram

    5) reduced phone size (reduced bezels)

    ?

    1 - 50%
    2 - 0% chance, gimmick.
    3 - 95% chance they cant keep on with 8MP forever.
    4 - 99% or there will be riots by the refreshing gods.
    5 - 2%

    my opinion only ;)

    1 - 0% external appearance will be the same
    2 - 0% as above
    3 - 80% I think this will be one of the new features on the 6s
    4 - 80% as above
    5 - 0% - External appearance will be the same

    1 and 5 will probably be addressed with the 7. 2 may be addressed with the 7 but only if they can do it without adding bulk or port covers

    1) 5%, they won't change the exterior
    2) 0%, see above, plus I don't see apple wanting to cover ports and things with cheap little covers like Samsung does.
    3) 90%, the camera will definitely see improvement
    4) 95%, speed will be their biggest selling point
    5) 0%, they won't change the exterior

    1) Non protruding camera
    50/50 I'm sure they'd prefer it not to protrude

    2) waterproof
    0. Water resistant chance is high

    3) higher mpx camera
    They will up it minimally but I'm fine if they don't sensor size is more important 75% chance I'd say they go 13mp

    4) 2gb of ram
    95% chance. They used every bit of that 1gb and it is fully optimized. It is time for 2gb.

    5) reduced phone size (reduced bezels)
    Minimally reduced only. The form factor and stylization is iconic. They will not stray too far too quickly. Changes will be gradual.

    Agreed. If Apple follows what they have been doing in the past, the 6s will be the exact same size and have the same external appearance as the 6.

    I'd be willing to bet the 6 gets OIS. There should be decent camera upgrades on the S model, and I suspect RAM will finally be stepped up, as well as the A9 processor.

    I'm also predicting the front camera will be bumped to a 5MP.

    I don't think for factor will change. I do think that the 6S will be the one that should have the longest usable life of any iPhone to date.

    It almost certainly won't be waterproof as Apple designs its stuff for a very sterile, ideal environment.

    I'm surprised you guys don't think they'll change the protruding camera. the iphone 5s had a different home button appearance compared to the 5.. which is why i thought the 6s may have the same slight change to distinguish itself as superior to the 6.

    I don't think they will get rid of it. The camera has to have good specs, and the phone is very thin. I don't think most people mind having just a tiny ring portrude on the back if it means great images. Most people also get cases that negate it protruding at all.

    You know how Apple sends out those cryptic invitations to their special events?

    I thought it'd be funny if they did the following.

    Setup the iPhone as getting.

    Double the RAM
    Double the cores with a quad core A9
    Double the "Shatterproofness" of the screen via Saphire

    And then send out an invite that has just "The 2nd Coming..."

    Too many newbies here. They never change the design/form factor for "S"-type updates.

    3G to 3GS and 4 to 4s didn't have any major external change to distinguish the latter as superior, yet they were able to sell a boatload of them.

    You're SO wrong! The 4S had antenna lines on the SIDES instead of on top, it is clearly way superior! /s

    Only number 4 is certain. #3 is possible but there's really no point. The rest 0%.

    I wrote major changes. Antenna line placements are not major changes and neither were the metalized imprints on the back that the 3GS gained over the 3G.

    2. 0%
    3. 80%
    4. 99%
    5. 0% if you mean reduced bezels. 100% if you mean thinner.

    Here's the thing: If you make the camera thinner the chip has to get smaller because the lens is even closer.

    I'm not sure Apple is going to take that hit on quality and low-light ability.

    It's nice to say "oh, cool, it doesn't stick out." But you have to ask what the cost is in terms of image quality. And I don't think Apple's willing to pay that cost.

    You actually think they'll make the iPhone 6s/6s+ even thinner as a S-type update? I'd think they'll reserve that for the 7/7+, as they don't typically change the form factor in between.

    FYI, sapphire is a harder material than glass. It'll shatter easier but is more resistant to scratches.

    1. No, they won't change the design at all
    2. I hope they do as that was one of the things that made me switch to android and I'd like to go back. However being realistic I don't think Apple will do it soon.
    3. Probably, they need something to market as better.
    4. I'd say almost 100% there are enough people who would be upset if they didn't
    5. No because they won't change the design, probably for the 7 though.

    If they make the 6s waterproof I'll pick one up. BUT, I doubt that will happen, a waterproof iPhone makes way too much sense...
