Predictions for iPhone 5 & iOS 5
Right now i have the iPhone 4 and really can't wait for the next generation iPhone to come out. Here are my predictions for the next iPhone 5.
iPhone 5 Hardware:
-Same Design but instead will have aluminum back & black apple logo to match the iPad design
-5 or 8 megapixel camera
-Notification light on the home button
-Proximity Sensor will be "fully" fixed
-Bigger Speaker Grill
-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
-More RAM and Faster Processor
iPhone 5 Software (iOS 5):
-Notification system will be better
-Mobile Me will be free
-Widgets will be implemented when you double click the home button, similar to dashboard on Mac
-Social Networking will be integrated with contacts
-The weather app will have a live icon, similar to the calendar icon
-Spotlight Search will allow searching in Google Maps
-Voice control will be system wide in text fields
-You will have your own login account when your turn on your iOS device. This would be beneficial for the iPad because if you have multiple people using your iPad you can have each account with it's own settings, saved games, and apps.
-You will be able to delete each individual call history. Right now you only have the option to delete your whole call log.
-Game Center will be updated so all your games will be synced to each iOS device so this way you don't have to start all over in a game on another device you can just pick up where you left off.
-Photo Booth, iWorks, iPhoto will be announced for iPad 2 and iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and iPod 4th Gen.
-iPhoto will allow for basic photo editing
-Photo Booth will allow for live video & picture effects with the front facing camera.
-Camera app will be updated to support live picture effects on video & pictures.
-Text Messaging app will allow the option to show each individual time & date reports.
These are my predictions of what the future of iPhone and iOS 5 will be. All these things might not be implemented in the next generation but I think somewhere down the road we will see a lot of these features on future iOS devices.
Let me know what you think in the comments....or let me know what other predictions or hopes you might have.

I doubt that Apple will bump the screen size to 4'', for one or two reasons. First, from an ergonomics standpoint, 3.5'' is a good size for the average human hand. Apple is a slave to Industrial Design, and won't change something unless it is a) aesthetically pleasing and b) functional.
Unless they can keep the Pixel Density the same, I doubt they will do that. All a bigger screen does is "blow up" what is on there, if it is the same resolution. There is no real net gain at that point.

Plus if anyone could do it right, it would be Apple. Not to menton if they do come out with a 4" phone Apple fans will buy it because it has an Apple logo on it.

Larger screen at same pixels? Does not = more content.
Apple fans will buy it because it has an Apple logo? I waited nearly 4 years for my first iPhone. Because the network mattered to me.

and maybe not you, but a lot of other apple fans will go out and buy the iPhone "HD" because it has an apple logo on it and that jobs will say "its the best thing ever"

Honestly, if they don't change the screen, then it's going to look like the same phone forever. I like my iphone, but honestly I love using my friend's evo. Granted, the screen kind of looks like a poo smear compared to the retina display, but I love not having to constantly pan around when I use the web, and I like how I can see a lot more twitter, facebook, and instagram posts without having to scroll.

Please no notification light! I hate them! I do agree that iOS will get a better notification system (finally). I'm not sure about the 4 inch screen though. To keep the retina display they would have to up the pixel density. Also every single app in the app store would have to be re-worked to fit the larger screen size. Since the 4 only upped the pixel density, developers didn't have to change anything if they didn't want to. They had the option to update to show the new pixel density, but I have many apps that did not update for the retina display.

I'm sure they wont do 4" this time around unless it's retina. People were clamoring for Retina Display on iPad 2 and with the big leap they wont go backward on a new model. iOS 5 needs Lockinfo smushed together with biteSMS as the notification system. The ability to save files on the web just like you save images and then it syncs over to your computer when connected. The ability to browse your albums to upload pictures to sites right from the device. The ability to forward calls and notifications to your iPad from the phone to rival HP's whatever it's called. The iPhone 5, faster processor, more storage, better battery life because everyone always wants better battery life.
