    I was just wondering if you guys think that the "new iPhone" will have live screens aka rain screens like some of the andriod phone have.

    That'd be an iOS implementation, not a hardware implementation.

    And since iOS 6 beta doesn't support live wallpapers yet, I'd say... not yet ;)

    Honestly, I do not think there is a big market for them as they completely destroy battery life...so most likely no

    Common misconception.

    They're only active when the display is active, and at that point, the tiny bit of processor power that's being used to drive the live wallpaper is insignificant compared to the power being used to drive the backlight at that time.

    So while there is some amount of battery life that is eaten up by having a live wallpaper, it nowhere near destroys battery life.

    And, it's always nice to have options... don't like it, turn it off. :)
