I like a lot of your ideas , Especially for the hardware. However, a long with a bigger speaker grill, i hope they make it louder and reposition the speaker because there will probably be more interference.
Log in account I see more so with iPad only because the iPhone is a phone , its suppose to be more personal than a computer. iPad is like a minivan and a iPhone is like a coupe =] occasionally a friend comes a long...
I like the light in the home button. If Apple can find a LED that is extremely efficient then they may do it.
Rene stole of these ideas for his article lol ...
edit: He also spoke about a notification widget that will show up when you double press the home bottom for multitasking, that would be a dream. Less intrusive message alerts. I mentioned that the top bar can expand to 2x it's size and can definitely temporarily be a place to preview messages ( if the phone isn't in a full screen game mode )
Usually every year I make a list of things Apple can do to improve the following iPhone but I gave up. I know I want AirDrop an File manager.

After seeing what the iPad2 is, I have this feeling that the iPhone5 will be coming later in the year. I would agree that it would be a 4G phone on both networks if it comes out at the end of summer or sometime in fall. This would allow Apple time to see how the 4G networks work and would come across nicer to the new VZ iPhone customers. The way I see it, Apple knows they have the upper hand and probably has the most perfect device already made, but they are just stringing everyone along to keep us upgrading. Until the other competing devices start upping the ante or until a redesign is needed, Apple will cruise along with small upgrades to the iPhones.

As of right now, the new iPhone is scheduled to launch the same time as it has in previous years. It's not going to be late summer or anything. It'll release in mid-to late June. Expect lots of NFC goodness as well. And different than other manufacturers have tried to date, we're talking about Apple here. And LTE is too immature for Apple currently. Wouldn't expect a 4G iPhone until next year.

Themes would be nice, but that would add quite a bit of bulk to an already huge Apple Store.
I think the option for a less intrusive alert is great, as well.
I definitely think the AT&T version should have LTE capable. I could see where Verizon might not because their 3G network is so drastically different than LTE. Though, doing one LTE and not the other might really make people angry. But if you released the AT&T one in the summer and the Verizon one in the winter. Then they could release both of them as LTE.

I think that the one soon to be released will have minimal upgrades to it. Most of these will be available with a software update. I think the IP6 will be the greatly improved and sought after device...which will release 2012 or '13..imo.

Obviously it appears the biggest need from the majority of responses is a better notification system. To that I couldn't agree more. I would also like widgets but for some reason I don't think we'll be seeing them in iOS 5 but I would at least like to see more voice commands (i.e. bluetooth on/off or wifi on/off) right now it is a pain to switch bluetooth on and off.
Now who doesn't want a faster phone with more memory but I have NEVER once thought to myself that I wish this phone was faster. Just give me an improved notification system, LED light, widgets and/or more voice commands and LTE/HSPA+ with a longer battery and I'll be a happy camper.

You might want to bring your iPhone back to Apple for it to be looked at.
BTW, I never close apps but occasionally I'll soft reboot my phone just because and not because it's running slow.

iPhone 5 Hardware:
-8 megapixel camera, 1080p recording.
-iPhone antenna design will be the same for both Verizon and AT&T except SIM card slot will be added for the AT&T version.
-Will be available in 32GB and 64GB
-iPad's Processor and RAM
-4" Retina Display
-Some kind of coating over the metal band, masking the "antenna-gate issue."
-MAYBE, just MAYBE, 4G speeds
(my realistic predictions at least)
- 03-25-2011, 12:48 PM #69
- design might be different
- there won't be 1080p. There's no real point, and 8MP is also pointless unless they increase the sensor size again.
- 64GB might still not happen.
- it will have the iPad's processor, but possibly more RAM like we saw this year.
- if it's 4" it wont be over 300ppi anymore, so it won't be a "retina display". They could go to 3.8" but they won't make the device any bigger so 4" isn't going to happen.
- recent news indicates apple is not interested in NFC as not enough retailers support it yet.
- we can only hope they get their heads out of their asses and fix the antenna. It's not a big issue for me, but it's still annoying that in some places my pinky drops a call.
- it will probably have HSPA+, but not 4G LTE.

In regards to the thread, dont change the size I already make fun of friends with droids saying they need a backpack to carry their phones.... Saying the iPad is smaller etc.
They could potentially release a 4g iPhone even without major capability because it can still use the current 3G then use 4g where available....
Tapa talking that shizzzzzzz

For hardware, I'd like to see dual core, 64GB, reception issues resolved and the home being made touch. I'm not bothered about larger screen unless the resolution increased with it, iPhone 4 may not be the largest screen but it's still got the highest resolution.
IOS 5? Needs to have better camera control and better bluetooth utilisation. I don't know of any other phone that can't bluetooth a picture to another phone. Serious work needs to be done with the camera roll and photo album. Need iTunes to create, modify and delete albums? Come on.
Would be great to have built in security settings too. We all have pics and videos we want to keep private. Yes, you can buy apps for this but it would be better built in.
Better integration between IOS and apps would be perfect. Netportal, Quickoffice, Dropbox, Bump etc, all able to fully integrate with each other and IOS. Maybe that can all be done now, I'm not sure.
Having moved from Nokia 95 8GB last November, I'm not sure what the fuss is all about with notifications?
One thing that also needs to be done is the iTunes application for the desktop. It needs to include methods to control the iPhone's calender, phonebook and so on. Synchronisation is also confusing, I've had my apps dissapear, icons moved to different screens ..... Something that works similar to Nokia's PC Suite.
Connectivity to iTunes via wifi.
Lastly, cut the cord between iPhone and iTunes. I'd prefer not to need to have a desktop to use my phone.
