If I were to ever get an iPhone it will need to have BETTER notifications. Purple pop ups are annoying as hell. Hell on the iPad they are annoying. Not sure what made Jobs think it was the greatest thing ever. I do hope its something a little more then what android offers and more then just a list bellow the search box, but nothing too gimmicky.
Widgets are nice, and of course can be turned off.
I dobut the larger screen will happen, but if it does, people will buy it because it has an Apple logo on it
I do like the "share as" feature on android. I take tape a photo and share it with any [rogram or service with out needing to leave the app.
also, allow the user to turn off or uninstall the stock apps.

As for hardware I'd like; LED notification, dual speakers, and longer lasting battery
For software; widgets, live icons (as a weather app that show actual temp), much improved notification for SMS, emails, etc...
In all honesty, if they added a LED, improved basic specs as they do in every year, I'd be happy but I do expect for Apple to blow us away considering all the competition.

The question is, WHERE would the light be, and how big/small would the light be?
I think the home button. The little white square could light up. nothing fancy. Just a white LED. Nice clean appearance. (and yes I dobut the home button would be removed.)

Most of my wants could be solved by software upgrades, I'm sure. A wireless sync would be GREAT, the ability to customize text/ringtones like ANY OTHER phone out there, widgets for home/lock screens, in depth personalization options.
Hardware related would be: swappable battery? microSD slot? stereo mic for some background noise cancellation? 4G?
A notification light would be nice, if you had the option of turning it off. An LED in the home button had been mentioned, and that would be nice, but then again, this could be solved with a lock screen widget.
All in all, I'm still using a 3GS and I'm thrilled with it, but I'm coming due for an upgrade soon... it's gonna take something fairly convincing to lock me into another contract.

and what exactly do you mean by the copy and paste?
The lock screen is there for a reason. Everything else is locked out

Led notification, SMS that is more like bitesms, bigger screen. Maybe 4". I had the droid X and it was great. Love the big screen, but even with the smaller screen the iphone is a better phone. Then once you jailbreak it, the phone is incredible.

64GB: the 4 right now can play HD videos, higher res means heavier files.
4-Inch Screen: Larger screen real-estate
No Glass Back
Higher Res Front Camera : at least 2mp
Louder Speakers : probably even reposition it into the ear speaker
They can continue to make it faster as well. Software wise, they'll eventually add more features so thats not a problem... just being stuck with a physical device you can't easily change is annoying.

I'd switch it around to not assume I'm buying a 5. So I'd say, what would cause me to buy a 5? Sure, the idea for the LED notification is great but would it cause me to buy a 5? I doubt it. More memory? No, because I can swap in and out of my 32 gig current phone. I mean, I'd take it, but a 64 gig iPhone or even a 128 gig one wouldn't cause me to buy even if bundled with the LED notification system.
I'm really in the other camp of what would make me buy and I can't think of anything which would. The move from the 3 to the 4 was stupid easy for me due to the display, plus I prefer the 4 design and feel. However the 5 would really need something wonderful that I've yet to hear mentioned to cause me to upgrade again.

Rumors abound about 2 separate iPhone 5 versions. The Nano, which would be smaller and cheaper, and a larger (4.3 inch screen) version.
What would I like? For AT&T to give me an upgrade and for the 5 to drive down the price of the 4.
Notification lights are nice, but I can honestly say that I don't miss them anymore. Widgets would be nice (Android-style would be ideal), same with the ability to move icons anywhere. 5 icon dock standard? I'd be ok with that, but again I can Jailbreak and get that.
