If the new iPhone (iPhone 6th generation) had these:

- iOS 6 (Siri, Maps, FaceTime, etc.)
- Improved, Thinner design (7.6 mm, 18% thinner)
- 4-inch Retina display (640 x 1136 resolution)
- Dual-core A5X chip (1 GHz CPU & 1 GB DRAM)
- 4G LTE (AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint)
- FaceTime HD (1.3 MP FaceTime camera)
- Group Chat (FaceTime between four iOS devices or Macs)
- Better speakers
- Smaller dock
- nanoSIM
- Enhanced Bluetooth 4.0 Sharing
- Enhanced Airplay
- Panorama mode for Camera
- Better battery compared to iPhone 4S

Think these are the most reasonable features.

No, because those are just the known rumors.
In addition to those, I am expecting:
Lytro like camera capabilities.
Even longer lasting battery.
Waterproofed hardware.
iOS 6 native and easy way to toggle Bluetooth ON/OFF.
iTunes Match and iCloud that works faster.
Free Apple server service to connect to my Macs, then evolving to the future dream of an iCloud service = OS X online machine 1TB.

If the new iPhone (iPhone 6th generation) had these:

- iOS 6 (Siri, Maps, FaceTime, etc.) I see no advantages over iOS 5 for my purposes
- Improved, Thinner design (7.6 mm, 18% thinner) fine the way it is, but I'll take it.
- 4-inch Retina display (30% increase, 640 x 1136) Better than what we've got but that's about all it is.
- Dual-core A5X chip (1 GHz CPU & 1 GB DRAM) zzzzzz
- 4G LTE (AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint) so I can burn through my data plan faster, yay
- FaceTime HD (1.3 MP FaceTime camera) don't care, don't use it
- Group Chat (FaceTime between four iOS devices or Macs) no need for it
- Better speakers not bad the way they are
- Smaller dock zzzzzzz
- nanoSIM zzzzzz
- Enhanced Bluetooth 4.0 Sharing zzzzzz
- Enhanced Airplay better ways to get from point A to point B
- Panorama mode for Camera There's already apps for that

Think these are the most reasonable features.
Nothing here really shouts "here's the next new iPhone!" to me.

I think all that is quite realistic. It's going to be something very close to that. The "smaller dock" will be USB 3, and hopefully MagSafe as well. The back camera will almost certainly get an upgrade.

What would "enhanced AirPlay" consist of?

I don't think magsafe is possible with a device as light in weight as the iPhone. Or at least not practical in real life use.

Apple makes the new iPhone WATERPROOF and it will sell 50 Million easily. LOL

Seriously, I would be very happy if this was the new iPhone. *I can't remember who posted it here.



4.3"+ Retina Display
2GB RAM
1.5GHz Dual Core A5X
LTE
$650 for 32GB in White. I never cared for Front & Back Cameras so they can eliminate if it means keeping the price down.

The MOST important, 10 hours of Battery Life.

This is the issue. People's expectations are set too high.

your expecting water proofed hardware? Where do people get these expectations? They come out of nowhere then on the 12th there will be an onslaught of disappointed threads because these unrealistic expectations dont get met.

I'm hoping for all the things the OP posted plus "maybe" NFC and wireless charging. but im hoping doesnt mean im expecting it to 100% happen.

No...if those are really the specs, I will keep my current iPhone 4 as an iPod and get one of the competing phones with more compelling features as my phone.

4.3 retina + 2gb ram is too high after 2 years of the 4 and 4S? Sounds to me like you are the perfect apple fanboy: a persons with expectations too low.
wtf do we need 2gb of ram on a phone? The 4s is smooth as silk with 512. competing android phones with 1gb+ of ram are not even a fraction as smooth. so why should apple bump the ram that much. and 4.3? your going to bitch about .3 of an inch on the phone?

But man were those Galaxy S3 leaks inspiring!
Tell me when the iPhone gets 2 gigs of ram, or finally catches up with NFC, LTE, larger screens.

Likewise, let's talk about Smart Stay, or Pop Out Play, or tilt to scroll, direct dialing via proximity sensor, wireless charging; most of these things put the 'smart' in smartphone. Far more inspiring than iOS 6's biggest feature so far, Maps and Navigation. Welcome to the party, iOS.

I'm not even that big of a fan of the GSIII, but I'm not afraid to admit when the competition is rising to the occasion.

----------

We now know that Apple actually pays very close attention to consumer feedback (thanks to the Apple vs. Samsung trials).

I've always said that if people aren't intellectually honest about Apple's shortcomings, Apple has no reason to change. Ultimately, this will hurt the consumer, whether he knows it or admits it or not. Example? I present to you the next gen iPhone* and iOS 6.

*If the leaks are real.

----------

People's expectations are set too high.
And yours is too low. Apple's trained you well.

In retrospect, if the phone has the longer same width display as we've been seeing, there's several advantages I'll enjoy.

1) Put off by the display, I'll pass & save a few hundred bucks.
2) I'll learn what it's like to use the same old iPhone for two years straight.
3) The newness worn off, I won't be so careful with this 4S.
4) One look at the elongated model makes me appreciate the 4S more.
5) I'll recalibrate my expectations that Apple will likely recycle the long phone. Using the same 4.0" 16:9 next year as well.

Once I've let go of all expectations, a vanilla iPhone will suffice just fine.

Easy Peasey :)

Well said.
Sure, for a typical fanboy.

Who gives a **** if it's 2gb or 1 gb an upgrade is needed oh and don't get me started on the screen size. Anyone who is happy and was happy with the 4 and 4S and now this taller screen has to be a typical fanboy apologist. Just like the people happy with no multitasking ( still not true even after all this time) and copy paste and every thing else that apple has been late to the proverbial party on over the years.

Bottom line is that apple has stopped being innovators and are just being complacent litigators.

Still hilarious that people like you guys will never see the bigger picture.

If the new iPhone (iPhone 6th generation) had these:

- iOS 6 (Siri, Maps, FaceTime, etc.) Well It's not magically going to get iOS 7 at launch is it? :p
- Improved, Thinner design (7.6 mm, 18% thinner) Yeah sure. Why not?
- 4-inch Retina display (30% increase, 640 x 1136) I like it.
- Dual-core A5X chip (1 GHz CPU & 1 GB DRAM) *yawn* I'll be playing with the Quad Core HTC One XL instead
- 4G LTE (AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint) Absolutely!
- FaceTime HD (1.3 MP FaceTime camera) Pretty good. I think we can make it 2.0 though :D
- Group Chat (FaceTime between four iOS devices or Macs) Not a bad Idea, didn't think of that!
- Better speakers YES PLEASE
- Smaller dock Not a selling point for me
- nanoSIM I'm on Verizon so SIMs aren't really a big concern for me.
- Enhanced Bluetooth 4.0 Sharing In what way?
- Enhanced Airplay What enhancements?
- Panorama mode for Camera iOS 5 tried it, did it horribly.
- Same/better battery compared to iPhone 4S Better is a must. If it's the same it will have worse battery life than the 4S

Think these are the most reasonable features.
