USB c to lighting cable; I believe I missed off fast charging too.

I think the laser scanning 3D thing could be a game changer. Imagine a 3D portrait style photo that moves like the parallax home screen

You realize, don't you, that aside from the Taptic Engine, most things in that list came first to Android.

Lmao, give OP a break; we're sorely in need of these "features" on the iPhone side. I'm excited for such a big change myself.
I'm pleased to see it coming to the iPhone...just pointing out that many of them were on the competition's phones.

And if the 7s/+ don't have many of the new features, in essence Apple is charging a hefty premium to get them.

We'll have to see.

Byn Abdroid, you mean Samsung. Nobody has laser front scanning with 3D sensing tech. If they did face recognition would be a secure feature then the unsecure way it is now.

That's exactly what they're doing, and most people on this forum are aware. I'm alright with it, but seems a lot aren't.

Given the recent leaks of the product design, the only innovation will be the front OLED panel with almost zero bezels and glass back. The phone will retain the same design as the current iPhone 7 which as been used for 3 years now. Only one "leak" imaged from popular leaker Ben Geskin showed off a square body design similar to the iPhone 4 - iPhone 5S. Not a fan. I will however be very interested to see how Apple implements the home button. Will it be always visible or will it disappear or will it only be a vibration.

I just hope,
The bezeless is not a burden of real world usage. Or i will not buy it.
Other stuff are cool enough to worth playing around though.
iPad is my next target for headphone jack.
