    Since we will be starting a new year soon, I thought it might be interesting to see what everyone thinks Apple should do in the new year.

    What do you want to see from Apple in 2014?

    What products and services are you hoping get updated?

    What brand new products and services would you like to see?

    Please explain why you feel these products and services are important.

    How about you, though? I know there are a lot of articles about rumoured products, but I'm interested in hearing what iMore members would like to see personally.

    I am happy with the size of the current iPhone, I hope it's not bigger...

    I want to see more laptops and less tablets, so hopefully some more Macbook options. I have no interest in tablets, I need a really powerful machine in a laptop form to run my graphics suite on there and a tablet would never cut that mustard, plus i have no desire to tote another item around in the abyss of this bag.

    I will be curious to see an "iWatch" which I hope is not huge or hideous, which seems to be the way those things go.

    I agree that it's time for a MacBook refresh. I'm also interested in seeing what's new with the MacBook line.

    I think big watches are just a fad now with watches in general, even those not smart. Many current women's watches are bigger than men's watches from 20 years ago. But I think watch sizes are cyclical, and we'll see smaller watches again, just like a lot of other fashion trends make a comeback.

    I would like to see them update iTunes and iOS 7 so playlists can be successfully transferred to my phone without:

    Unchecking sync music
    Apply
    Unplug phone from PC
    Plug back in
    Sync music
    Manually add music
    Hit sync

    That would be nice.

    I would like to see some new features for iOS and iPhones. Like the ability to chose light or dark themes as they have on blackberry, a better notification hub, I would also like to see them bring on some of the features that the samsung galaxy s 4 has. I know a few people who have s4 and there are a few features I wish iPhone had, like the wave your hand over your phone to answer or check the time when it is locked.

    I also think a iWatch would be nice too but nothing to big and bulky

    This is probably a farfetched idea but I think it would be awesome if apple implemented something similar to the moto maker where you can order custom iPhones directly from Apple.

    Also I need a bigger sized option at least 4.7" to 5".

    For me I am locked in for the next 2 years and when you have their latest in the the 5S and don't mind. I just hope they listen and the next phone they come out with no matter the name that they give a good deal of thought to the consumer and trends this time and give them in order of importance of consumer requests and what they can do and maintain their usual good tastes and give the consumer and good looking, well designed, solid phone that will take them to the next level and totally seperate them from the competition. Mainly i think this is the perfect time that if they are going to give us a new phone with a larger display, This is when they do it and make it sensible that everyone will like.

    Surely you are just kidding right about an IOS better than BB and Android?? Notifications will always be a part of the OS that will undergo changes as needed but won't be done because of the competitors you mention and more because of what the consumer needs, asks for and makes good sense for Apple to include in the OS on a brand new phone.

    My answer to you is not total disagreement in that I only am not agreeing with the word intuitive as the others you mention.

    Precisely the customers asked for a notifications system but however I feel Apple hasn't really placed a good implemention on there yet. It feels far less intuitive than what I see on my Android and other phones, besides Windows Phone...

    Sure, they added it in, but I have to say they need to really put more polish and change a little of how they placed the elements there. As it stands, I can't really give a wholehearted recommendation.

    I don't need/want a bigger screen. I would like to see a new iPhone hardware design, which I am assuming we will see judging by their track record (new model, s version, new model, s version, etc). I am excited to see what the newest line will look like.

    I'd be fine with a bigger screened but NOT a physically larger iPhone. Reduce the side bezels to increase screen real estate but the physical size is perfect as is. Sure, release a monster sized version in addition for those who like phablets.

    Apple TV needs to make the jump from hobbyist toy to full fledged TV market disruption. And I'm not talking about an actual TV set, make the set top box a game changer by lining up subscription deals with content providers and letting people get cable TV content with a monthly subscription tied to my Apple account *A LA CARTE*, and not have to go through bundled deals with cable companies. Add in an app store, Siri, and Facetime integration, and it would be the next big game changer in the TV market akin to what the original iPhone did to the phone market. If they really want to go all out, support controller integration (present in iOS7) and make it into a decent game console as well.

    I'm 'meh' on an iWatch. I don't wear a watch currently as is and wouldn't intend on getting a smart watch unless it had a killer 'must have' feature, of which I cannot think of anything that would qualify at the moment. But that's just me.

    I'd like to see a refreshed Mac Mini. I've never owned a Mac before, but if I did, an updated version of the Mini would make the perfect entry level OSX device to get my feet wet. If it has the juice to play some of my favorite mid-ranged specced games, I'd be sold. And it would be a perfect companion to an Apple TV to load up my entire video library into and stream to my big screen TV.

    I just thought of a feature that would be insane, but likely not to happen in a million years...

    I want to see a video version of iTunes Match. Load my favorite physical DVD's into iTunes, and it matches with the same iTunes version on all of my Apple devices, just like the music version of the same feature. I'd even be fine paying more for the yearly subscription for such a feature. However I could see that as opening a door for rampant piracy: rent a movie at Redbox for $1, copy it to iTunes, and have the rented movie forever on all of your devices. Bummer.

    I'd also love to see Apple add in true hands free voice commands a la Moto X, without the need to hold the home button to bring up Siri.

    I don't care if it's copying the competition, being able to say "OK Siri, play my playlist" would be sweet!

    Vudu has something very much like this. You can take your DVDs to a participating retailer and get the digital editions which you can access online via web or app. You do have to leave the DVDs with them so the piracy issue isn't an issue.

    That's a deal killer for me. If I legally own the DVD, you're not going to take my property away from me. That's absurd.
