    yes we're getting the 6S this fall more than likely and same form factor as the 6. But how about the next iteration? Is it going to be glass, aluminum or plastic? I've always said that I love the glass back of the 4 series and the Galaxy s6 obviously copied the idea. What does apple have its sleeve for the iPhone 7?

    I hope they keep the aluminum back. Lose the ugly (in my opinion) antenna bands and replace them with a better looking design. Change the screen size to around 5.1 inches.
    I would also like iOS 10 to allow home screen and lock screen widgets and also let us arrange app icons in our own layouts.

    Reduce the device size by getting rid of those ugly bezels. Improve battery life on non-plus models.

    It's going to be sphere-shaped and bounce-able. I happen to know this. It will glow in the dark. I know this also.

    Yes, I second these suggestions! And while were at it, let's go for broke. Give us a removable battery and expandable data storage.:D

    Smaller bezels. Better battery. Haptic feedback. 4K video camera. Better glass.

    I'm 100% confident we get at least 3 of these improvements.

    Paper thin, has the ability to control your bowel movements, and dual boots to Windows Vista.

    It's too early to think and I havent had my coffee...

    Only thing I can contribute is I hope they drop the 16gb as the base storage offering and make it:

    32, 64, 128.

    I get why they have 16gb as the base, but seriously.

    Oh and I would like wireless charging.

    Just realized this is speculation on the iPhone 7, I was thinking it was about the 6S. These are my hopes for the 6S. Again I havent had my coffee, carry on.

    I sincerely hope that we don't lose the antenna bands because the phone won't pick up a WiFi or cellular signal then, we'll only be able to play games and look at the calendar.#

    I think it's gonna be a little chip that you're getting implanted and never have to change. It displays every information inside your eye and when you call someone, you didn't have to speak. You can just think about it and your voice gets rebuild inside the brain of you talk partner.

    5" OLED screen with 1080p Sapphire Glass
    2GB of ram
    Apple A10 tri core or quad core
    12mp camera with 4K recording & OIS.
    5mp front facing camera with HDR
    Open NFC & Bluetooth
    Haptic feedback & force touch whatever it called
    Touch ID built into the screen making for thinner bezels at last & say goodbye to the button in the middle.
    Water resistant to some degree
    Few more bits and bobs they add to it.

    Storage size 64GB 128GB & 256GB, 16GB will finally be scrapped hopefully.

    I'll want 3GB of RAM in late 2016, with 2GB minimum in the 6S.

    Funny. The ugly antenna bands. Is that better?

    Antenna bands in a metal casing are an absolute necessity. Sure they're ugly on the iPhone 6, I'm not disputing that, but they need to be there. Perhaps Apple could make them look better...#

    As long as they reintroduce a 3.5" or 4" screen size with either the 6S or 7 I'll be happy and come back to the iPhone.

    Yes. I corrected it and added ugly antenna bands. I think you can stop picking apart my post now.
