    Couldn't this all be resolved by buying an Apple watch? No need for a "blinky" light then...

    One can almost equate the blinky light to The Pavolv's dog theory.....

    So you were in a very similar position then and you don't see where the users that want the LED are coming from now?
    Not a similar position at all. I didn't BUY a phone with Instagram. It was an app.

    A similar situation would be buying a blackberry and demanding iMessage and getting frantic because it didn't have it.

    Who is frantic? Because they should look into some high blood pressure medicine or perhaps see a doctor.

    Tell them.

    I'm genuinely intrigued by the concept of buying something that hasn't got what is desired and then going on for what......seven pages......about why it must be had.

    I like cars, so I use car metaphors...don't like it? Tough sh*t. It also clearly got the point across to you, and you understood it quite well (regardless of how much you're tired of seeing car metaphors), so in terms of functionality, it was quite useful. Just like the tape deck was replaced by newer technology, so has this idea of a notification light with the slew of things that new age smart phones can do to let you know you have a notification or message. Adding a light to the phone, with the sole purpose of notifying you of something, is a redundancy that is simply unneeded, and negates the technology that has evolved over the years to eliminate the need for such a thing.

    I used the 1% number to represent a tiny number...is it 1%? I have no damn clue honestly, nor do I care to dig up the numbers to accurately represent what the actual demand reflects. What do I know? The demand is tiny, and always has been...otherwise we would have seen it on the iPhone by now (because like you said yourself, Apple follows consumer demand trends...bigger screens, etc etc etc).

    Maybe Apple will, one day, add some kind of notification light to the iPhone...maybe Apple will add furry arms to the iPhone so that people can snuggle with it at night. I can't tell you for sure that neither of those things will happen, but in my opinion, I'm pretty damn sure they won't.
    I don't want blinks lights but furry arms sounds kinda cool.

    Just to reiterate Bakron's POV and give an opinion from the business community here in India and from my limited contacts in Indonesia , I can confirm that the people in my industry ( Custom Brokerage/Freight Forwarding/Logistics/SCM), do miss and wish for the LED lights on their iPhones. Not having it makes no difference, but having it, would be welcome
    This could essentially be, because of the fact that both countries have been huge on Blackberries and are moving on to the iPhone, slowly and steadily. A majority of the low end Android devices sold here ( Karbonn/Micromax/Samsung), already have the LED notification.

    Come on guys and gals! You do realise that if Apple does ever fit a "blinky LED light" to a future IPhone that it will suddenly be the coolest and most innovative thing going? <Sarcasm folks> 😆

    That aside, I am 50/50 about said "blinky light". Yes, it was great when you were 20 feet away from your phone in a noisy environment to know that you had either an email, message or missed call notification. On the down side when in any meetings with any colleagues at work when we all had BlackBerrys it was annoying when people would constantly pick up their phone to check it every time it went flashing away, even with phones set to silent.

    Personally I don't miss it really, and not hankering to have it back on my IPhone, or any future phone for that matter, but can understand why so do. Would it matter to me if Apple ever did stick one on an IPhone? No.

    You don't need a BES to make the light blink. I also don't see the pro blinky people getting frantic. The zeal on the other side however is curious.

    I said it correctly the first time. Hundreds of thousands of iPhone users agree. No damn blinky light.

    OK I was going to stay away from this but.....

    What does BES have to do with the price of tea????? WHERE did I mention BES as a requirement for the blinkity blinky blink blinking light?!!?!

    The zeal is simply put I don't want my iPhone turning into a BlackBerry. That simple. Don't think that's too hard a concept.
