People say they are perfect the way they are.
What about you. Should they add stuff like kick stands?

No.

They can do the obvious things, such as more RAM and storage, better camera sensor, much better battery life, and a bigger screen.

However, what they really need to improve are their software and services. iOS is lacking in terms of functionality (especially when it comes to file sharing between apps because of the oh-so-difficult filesystem) and customizability (like setting default apps).

Hardware wise I think the iPhone is on the right path, but software wise there needs to be some improvements. Apple should not put something on the phone just to say it is there (samsung). They should and do add things because it betters the users life and is useful.

3D is such a fad. I'm not a fan of 3D movies either in theaters. But yeah, I hope they focus on other things instead of things like 3D cameras.

I believe they should add HD resolution to their screens. I hope the IP6 has at least a 720p screen. And hopefully a more efficient battery.

Would HD matter? Isn't retina more pixels than I can actually view anyway?

The 1080p screen on the HTC One was 469 PPI, and it certainly looked better than my iPhone 5s screen.
I don't care about "better." Better is color saturation/contrast/color balance etc.

Would an HD screen make a difference if nothing else was changed? Isn't retina supposed to have indistinguishable pixels? What good would adding more do?

I mean, it may not matter so much to the ordinary user. But, it would be pretty sad if Apple can't push out an HD display for their phone and it's 2014.
Not =/= Can't.
Can =/= Should.

I see no reason it would even make a difference. From my experience, the only difference in most high end handsets are display calibrations and settings. The resolution seems fine to me.

You'd have to use one to see. It has a BETTER screen.

Yes a HD screen makes a difference. Higher PPI makes an image sharper. On the HTC I could read finer text without eyestrain. It may not be noticeable to everyone, but I certainly saw a difference.

It depends how close you are to your phone but yeah I think 400-500ppi would be awesome, iphones are really lagging behind with those 326ppi

  • Larger iPhone screen option
  • Same or slightly higher PPI ("HD" doesn't mean anything in phone screen world)
  • Ability to set default apps
  • Significantly better battery life
  • Optical image stabilization
  • 2 GB RAM (end the Safari refreshes already!)
  • Better file sharing system between apps
  • Siri APIs
  • Better use of iPad screen real estate
  • Customizable Control Center
  • More utilization of the fingerprint scanner (Keychain passwords? payments?)
  • And let me finally be able to delete the Stocks app, will ya?

This would make me happy.

Unless you are holding the screen 10 inches or closer you wouldn't be able to see a difference even if you had perfect eye sight, also keep in mind there are other things that can make a screen look better besides pixels.

Flash cards

I think they should add flash cards for flash player
However i dont think thats possible becuase apple did say that they dont want adobe exploiting their information in Steve Job's biography

They need to make IOS more "advanced".

What I mean is that people 7 years ago barley know how to use a smart phone so Apple made it very easy. But now a days, 2 year olds know how to use iDevices.

We don't need the "basics" anymore. Give us more freedom, more choices, more features. Can you imagine what would happen if IOS was more advanced like android? It would literally dominate the whole tablet, phone market.

Now I'm not saying I'm a philosopher of technology. I'm giving you the basics on what needs to be done. I don't know how to execute them. This is Apples job not mine. Hopefully someone there thinks this same logic and we see literally "The most advanced mobile operating system".
