    With all the rumors of the new iPhone what feature are you actually wanting?
    I do not care about a fingerprint scanner on my phone- care less I don't even use a security code - now I would want a fingerprint scanner on my macbook for sure. awesome to store credit cards or info in fingerprint scanner folder
    I don't care about a 12 megapixel camera i don't need better battery Colors choice is neat but i still use a case anyway.

    I WANT A BIGGER SCREEN!!!! that is why I would upgrade from iPhone 5

    What everyone else wanting in a new iPhone?

    All i really want is a 16:9 wide angle camera. I really hate having 4:3 pictures on the widescreen iPhone 5, laptop, monitor, tv, etc. For now I'm using Kitcam as a software solution, but a native wide angle sensor would make me very very happy :)

    The option to get the Aluminium parts coloured on either the black or white model, the screen is perfect. I would never want a phone that looks like a half tablet

    Re-quadrupling of the pixels! – Well maybe that's a bit far off.

    A 16:9 sensor sounds interesting as would 60 fps video but all together a new camera system should only be one of the features talked about not the whole announcement. What were those lenses called that could re-focus on elements of the photo post-capture? Faster HDR would be astounding; it hasn't really lived up to it's potential as too many photos have moving subjects. Non-destructive (digital) zoom anybody?

    A Siri update so when you ask for a video to be taken it actually switches mode in the Camera app instead of just loading the app.
    A Siri that talks less too. It's horribly frustrating when he says "Let me check on that" or "Checking my sources" but the answer to your question has already loaded by the time it's on the second word. Siri is your assistant not your friend and doesn't need to remark "Oh, so you like [actor x], do you?" When you ask what movies someone has been in! Just read the list!
    While I'm on this subject actually what's with "I found 12 restaurants, 8 are fairly close to you:" – Surely there are more than 12? Why do I need to know about ones that aren't nearby? If the distinction is between walking and driving distances maybe this could be made clearer in some way.

    A new audio setup with 4 speakers hidden behind the glass in each corner to provide stereo sound in either orientation (two outputting each channel)? – A setting also for the speaker orientation determination process to ignore orientation lock. A volume rocker like on the 7G nanos (+, centre-click, -) ... like on EarPods too.

    Faster speeds I guess? iPhone 5 doesn't have 802.11 AC does it?
    Wider LTE support in the UK & Elsewhere.
    Lower-powered electronics for longer battery life.

    Edit: Fingerprint sensor could be useful but if there isn't one then an option to remove the lockscreen if no password is present would help speed things up too.
    So would no bloody screen fading on/off... I'm looking at you iOS7. iPhone is too small for the fading to reduce impact on your eyes – fading is beyond annoying. Displays are welcome to stay fading on/off on Macs.

    Actually thinking about it if the 4 speakers were arranged in a diamond formation (still under the glass and directed forward instead of outward like current devices) halfway along each side of the device then in portrait the two speakers near the centre of the device will work, and the two at the ends of the device's long axis will work when in landscape. During the act of rotation the system can work to dynamically adjust volume of each speaker to keep left and right channels equal in volume and correctly oriented to the user at all times. (But as the speakers will all be pretty small the corner placements will allow louder/stronger sound overall as two speakers output each channel at all times during playback). Using all 8 would probably be expensive.

    The ability to leave group iMessage conversations.

    Fingerprint scanner. Will really speed up unlocking of device. Better camera - I could care less if it's higher than 8 (no one uses 8 or higher anyways) but would like image stabilization added in. For the iPad, a camera without a lot of zoom would be nice. Removal of home button - make it touch.

    microSDXC slot, removable battery, QWERTY slider, bigger screen, sideloading, and FM tuner, for it to be a proper phone.

    I'd really like to try a bigger screen. I love the 4" screen on the iPhone 5, but having the choice of 4.5" with same internal specs across the board, apart from maybe battery life, would be great.

    I'd also like a battery that doubles/triples the life, but I'm not sure how near we are to that yet.

    Apart from that, there isn't much that needs 'upgrading'. I think the camera's fine, the speakers are fine, the PPI is fine. However, other new features like a fingerprint sensor would be great -- in time, even cooler, newer tech may be implemented. iPhone with built in projector, anyone?

    Better battery life - more Siri involvement (enabling more voice interaction) can't think of anything further at the moment.

    Frankly, a better battery and more robust quality (eliminating iP5 bending) is all I'm really needing in the next iPhone. Everything else is expected icing on the cake (A7 processor, updated GPU, new global LTE chip, new lower-power wifi chip and sensors, possible fingerprint sensor, etc.). I'd love a bit wider body in order to fit a 4.3" edge-to-edge or further-minimized bezeled screen, but that's simply wishful thinking.

    For 5S? Meh nothing actually i am so satisfied with the 5, its fast enough, takes great pics, and for the build quality its superb, never had an issue.

    Now for the 6, i would like a new design, bigger screen(but not bigger than 4.7), and a quad core chip would be nice.

    Only one thing could get me to upgrade this year - bigger screen (which won't happen).

    I also want my phone to completely replace my wallet but no way that is happening this year. Even if the 5S includes NFC it won't be widely adopted at retailers for another year or two.

    Me too... or I go back to Android. Come on Apple! Get away from this "one phone fits all" mentality!

    I'd love a bigger screen on the order of the Samsung Galaxy phones - but I doubt that is happening this time around...
