What the next iPhone should look like: share your thoughts
When it comes to smartphones, everyone uses their devices just a little bit differently. And when it comes to the iPhone in particular, people sometimes have very specific use cases for work, home, and social lives. Some users might feel like the iPhone's screen is too small for their spreadsheet editing on-the-go, while others might feel that the entire device is already too big to fit into a pocket while skydiving. A fingerprint scanner could be useful to those who work high-security jobs, while it might come off as a superfluous expense for a teacher.
With Apple's September 12 media event just around the corner, it's time to begin speculating seriously about which features would benefit current and future iPhone users the most. We recently rounded up some of the most likely rumors about the next-gen iPhone, which include 4G LTE support, a screen-size bump, a revised dock connector, an improved camera, the 4FF's new "nano" SIM standard, and the iPhone's overall look and feel.
But the intricate details about these alleged new features are largely still missing—what should the new dock connector look like and what will be the goal of the redesign? How much can one really improve on the iPhone's camera? Will LTE be supported outside of the US and Canada (unlike the third-generation iPad)? And when it comes to the processor, should Apple upgrade the iPhone from the current A5 to a quad-core "A6" processor, or should it go with the A5X "extreme" that's currently in the third-gen iPad?
