What's ahead for apple?
Not sure what forum to post this in as it's just discussion or speculation of what Apple might bring in the next year.
The iphone 4S should have clued people in somewhat on Apple's strategy. No longer am I expecting a retina game changing ipad 3 in the spring. I'm thinking more like an ipad 2S. Upgrade the camera, add in Siri, A6 processor, 5.x bump in software, hspa+, etc.
Iphone 5 in fall? A6, LTE, double RAM, redesign, iOS 6, and i'm thinking the exclusive feature might be Apple Navigation, iNav or whatever Apple calls it. With Siri integrated into it, that could be impressive. This is a weak area for Apple and probably one they one to sever google from. Will Apple Ditch Google Maps in iOS 5? | News & Opinion | PCMag.com provides some details. Imagine the icloud at work with it as well.

As for the next iPhone, I don't see them calling it the iPhone 5 as it won't be the 5th iPhone. I think they drop the number game and just call it iPhone. I also think this will be the redesign everyone was looking for. I agree that LTE will be there IF Apple can get LTE to play nice with the battery. I also see a bigger screen 4inch is perfect.
I would love an Apple navigation app. I think this has been a weak point as well and think this is over due in my opinion.

I agree with most of what cardfan and Click are saying..
iPad 3 will be probably first part of next year.. Retina Display will be its biggest improvement.
iPhone 5 will be June as normal.. Its biggest improvement will be LTE and 4 inch screen.

Last I saw, Qualcomm's next version of quad band radio chipsets that's expected to be thinner, and less of power hungry, and be LTE capable isn't due until Q2-2012. My guess: We'll see an LTE iPhone on the streets in about a year from now.
