    Current trends seem to indicate the 5.5" is the largest we'll see for a while. The LG G5 actually got smaller, which is pretty crazy.

    Agreed. I honestly don't need to carry around an iPad Mini Mini either so I'm fine sticking with 5.5". As far as 3GB RAM is concerned, Apple stuck with 1GB for so long I doubt they'll make any upgrades this soon. I don't think additional RAM is really necessary at this point anyway.

    My prediction is that Apple will release 3 models in September. As well as the iPhone SE this March. Here's what I think the different models will be.

    iPhone 7 - no headphone jack (lightening EarPods will be included), wireless charging, water resistant, slimmer form factor, better camera.

    iPhone 7 Plus - everything iPhone 7 does but bigger!

    iPhone 7 Pro - Here's where I think Apple will introduce a new line to their iPhone collection. Well actually they will introduce a new line with the SE model in March but this is going to be marketed towards "professional or multimedia" users. This iPhone will have a dual lense system making it superior at taking photos then the other iPhone models. I think iPhone Pro will only come in 128GB or 256GB storage options making the starting price $949 and going up to $1049 for the 256GB model. They will also include wireless EarPods/AirPods. I think the headphones will look similar to the PowerBeats2 headphones minus the hook that goes around the ear, but will have a detachable lightning cable that can be used to charge the headphones when the battery is low by plugging it into your iPhone. This will make the headphones both wired and wireless when needed. I also think they will use the same 4 speaker system that currently exists on the iPad Pro line. This will extremely enhance the sound that already exists on the current iPhones. Finally I think the iPhone Pro will be compatible with the Apple Pencil. This will make the iPhone Pro very similar the the IPad Pro line, just think an iPad Pro in your pocket.

    As for the iPad line, rumor has it that Apple is going to announce a new 9.7 inch iPad Pro during their March event. This model will carry all the same features the current iPad Pro has but in a smaller form factor. Now you can see where the Pro line can range all the way down to the premium iPhone line.

    Predictions seem to be focused around same screen sizes (4.7" and 5.5"), thinner, no headphone jack and a Pro 5.5" model with a dual lens camera. It's early still and these seem like pretty weak upgrades to me so I think Apple will have to do something more to drive upgrades.

    My wish list:
    -Smaller bezels (nothing crazy, but an iPhone with the same screen sizes but a slightly smaller footprint would be nice)
    -Waterproofing (I think Apple should step up and match Samsung here and they proved it can be done without ugly flaps and covers and the 6s already appears to be halfway there already anyway...)
    -Camera upgrades (not just for the Pro model, some Android phones are beating the 6s in low light performance so I'd like to see Apple step up their game here)
    -Improved battery life (this doesn't need to be a big improvement, but an extra 15-20% would help with the heavy use days).

    One thing I don't care about at all is it being any thinner, the current model is plenty thin.

    I think is possible to do 6 inch iPhone with 4gb ram, better cpu and gpu. A10x chip will be awesome.

    Battery life will be able to last nearly 2 days with heavy usage lmao

    I think it would be great to have an iPhone "Pro" with more advanced features, question is will it be called iPhone Pro or iPhone 7 Plus?

    The iPhone Pro wouldn't be too good IMO, it would devaluate iPhone Plus (I haven't seen anybody so far with 6s Plus to begin with) and complicate the selection.

    If the leaks are true then I wonder how iPhone 7 will visibly differ so much from 6s to keep things fresh. It has to in order to withstand the Android onslaught.

    I'd be happy if they focused more on battery rather than thinness. Make it 1-2mm thicker and put a large battery in. Since they love those huge bezels, the plus is out of the question. No reason they cant stick a 3000 mah battery in the smaller phone. Samsung was able to do it. Come on apple!

    7+: QHD or 4K (UHD) 5.7" or 6" Retina HD display with 3D Touch, waterproof design, A10 and M10, 2GB or higher ram, better camera with OIS, FaceTime HD 1080p or 4K recording with OIS, new feature that 6s+ doesn't have.

    What features do you all think the next iPhones will have?
    this are great prediction, but i suggest to apple, let the consumer enjoy first the iphone 6 and 6+ before they make another upgraded version

    What do you mean? The 6 and 6 Plus will be two years old by the time the 7 is released.

    The iPhone pro sounds great. Unfortunately for Apple they will either have to make it huge or come up with a different design to separate it from the plus model. Honestly I just want to see the same excellent battery efficiency along with more compactly for the next model. The real question is what is Apple going to do hardware wise to push the platform forward.

    Better camera with other improvements. iOS 10 needs to have most of the goodies!

    But the 7 phones will be released in september, that's like 5 months away. You have plenty of time to enjoy your device. However, enjoying your device now doesn't really fit in with our consumerist ideologies so you have to constantly look forwards to things that will never actually satisfy you .

    Maybe this time around they'll hit us with some crazy battery life so we stop complaining about it for once :').

    Imagine if they came out with another color! It would probably be a metallic color, so what if they did copper? I think that would look sick, and possibly more gold looking than the actual "gold" color.

    Why complain? How often do you upgrade to a new phone? Each year? Every 2 years? A battery will last at least 2 years under moderate to heavy use. The only concern would be if you plan to use the phone more than 2 years. But even then only under heavy use. All the obsession with battery is ridiculous IMO.

    I'm not too much of a complainer usually, I mean the people buying phones in general. I think people were unsatisfied with the 6 mostly because of the battery? If I were to have major complaints I would just buy an extra battery pack.
    But I don't get to upgrade my phone as often as I would like, I think it's usually every two years, but I've definitely had phones for longer. I use a lot of gaming apps so battery never seems to last very long with me, especially after it's damaged. I would definitely like to see a better battery though!

    My iPhone 7 and 7 Plus predictions

    iPhone 7

    Design: Same design with iPhone 6/6 Plus/6s/6s Plus but no antenna bands and no camera bump

    Display: 4.7'' 720p Retina HD with Advanced 3D Touch (Apple will stick to this resolution for the non-plus model but will introduce a screen technology ala Triluminos Display and X-Reality Engine of Sony Xperia or ClearBlack Display of Lumia phones) or a bump to 1080p Retina HD with Advanced 3D Touch

    Processor: Apple A10 chip with M10 co processor embedded, 2GB RAM

    Storage: 32gb (hopefully no more 16gb), 64gb and 128gb

    Software: iOS 10

    Rear Camera: 12MP or 13MP or even 16MP iSight camera with True Tone Flash, f2.0 or f1.9 (Apple can even go as low as f1.8) lens, Live Photos, Focus Pixels 2.0, a new camera technology ala Deep Trench Isolation for better low light performance, noise reduction and improved tone mapping

    Front Camera: 5MP iSight camera, f2.0 lens, Retina Flash, wide-angle lens for wider selfies?

    Battery: Battery capacity prediction ranges from 1830, 1845, 1860, 1890, 1920, 1945, 1965 mAh or even higher), true wireless charging or Apple will finally adapt fast charging.

    Miscellaneous: Waterproofing? (Or at least slash proofing like the Apple Watch), no headphone jack in exchange of dual speakers, wireless earpods?


    iPhone 7 Plus

    Design: Same design with iPhone 6/6 Plus/6s/6s Plus but no antenna bands and no camera bump

    Display: 5.5'' or lower like 5.2'' (to improve one handed use) 1080p Retina HD with Advanced 3D Touch (Apple will stick to Full HD for the Plus model but will introduce a screen technology ala Triluminos Display and X-Reality Engine of Sony Xperia or ClearBlack Display of Lumia phones). A jump to Quad HD is unlikely but can still happen. Apple can do anything they want!

    Processor: Apple A10 chip with M10 co processor embedded, 2GB RAM

    Storage: 32gb (hopefully no more 16gb), 64gb and 128gb

    Software: iOS 10

    Rear Camera: 12MP or 13MP or even 16MP iSight camera with OIS and True Tone Flash, f2.0 or f1.9 (Apple can even go as low as f1.8) lens, Live Photos, Focus Pixels 2.0, a new camera technology ala Deep Trench Isolation for better low light performance, noise reduction and improved tone mapping

    Another Rear Camera Prediction: a dual camera setup like the LG G5 (I hope this is not limited to the Plus model)

    Front Camera: 5MP iSight camera, f2.0 or f1.9 lens, Retina Flash, wide-angle lens for wider selfies?

    Battery: Battery capacity prediction ranges from 2750, 2800, 2845, 2890, 2915, 2945, 2960, 3000 mAh true wireless charging or Apple will finally adapt fast charging.

    Miscellaneous: Waterproofing? (Or at least slash proofing like the Apple Watch), no headphone jack in exchange of dual speakers, wireless earpods?


    iOS 10 Predictions

    1. Same flat design (A major redesign is too early plus the flat design still looks good)
    2. Customizable Control Center
    3. Dark Mode
    4. Apple Pencil support (HOPEFULLY)
    5. Split-screen multitasking like from iPad (HOPEFULLY)
    6. Set default third party apps
    7. Guest Mode
    8. Deeper app linking
    9. Proactive Siri improvements
    10. Option to manually clear App caches for all apps

    I'm thinking given what I've heard the iPhone 7 will be thinner and will not have the audio jack. Not to beat a dead horse, but that rumor was one motivation I had to get the SE. There were other factors of course, but unlike prior years, I'm not as excited about the 7. I'm sure once they roll it out, I'll be wanting one (but my wife will kill me).

    No we can't. Apple releases a new iPhone (other devices also) every September. Right now the current iPhones are already obsolete.

    Front facing speakers
    I would love to see the bezels get shrunk
    While I don't think it is ready yet, I'd like to see the fingerprint reader incorporated into the screen.

    There are reports that the home button will be flesh and on the main screen with the front of the device and the back, being flush.

    I have a bad feeling this iPhone 7 won't be as big of a departure as most of us are hoping.

    Me too. I'm sure the 7 will have a nice couple of adds and a slight exterior upgrade but the big change is probably going to happen in 2017.
