    Default iPhone 5 ideas

    What would you like to see in the new iPhone - both the OS and hardware.


    I'm not so concerned with things Apple will clearly never do (interchangeable batter, flash, etc..). I'm interested in things they aren't definitively against. I'm also not interested in the network that the phone runs on. Again, just the phone and OS itself.


    Hardware:

    - Faster, of course. Processor, RAM, graphics card, etc...

    - First nearly indestructible smartphone. I want ricochet it off a rock into Niagara Falls, jetty it into space, and have it re-enter the atmosphere, landing on my concrete driveway... all while Facetime'ing in HD.

    - Badass battery life

    - 32G (basic) and 64G of memory

    - Message indicator light

    - (3D?) OLED Retina Display

    - Better sound from built-in speakers

    - Speaker-phone that's actually useful

    - 5MP front facing camera with flash

    - 8MP rear camera with improved lowlight

    - 1080p video (i doubt this will happen considering Apple TV's 720 output)

    - Maybe two rear cameras for 3D pictures/videos?

    - Holographic projector?


    IOS:

    - Custom MMS tones

    - Custom email tones for different email accounts

    - Better Photos app. Search Photos by tags; add ‘more info’ option for photos, display date taken, geotag info, faces, tags, camera info, etc. Rotate pics, allow copying of more than 5 pictures, allow editing the maximum picture/video sharing size.

    - Organized Notifications. It seems like Apple fails to make decent use of the lock screen. If I have multiple notifications, right now I only see the first notification on the lock screen. Once I unlock my device I'm hit by a flurry of unorganized notifications.

    - Individual time labeling for text messages while in editing mode. I can't find out the exact times the individual messages were send/received

    - Google turn-by-turn voice directions

    - Landscape mode of basic apps

    - Improved/additional app organizing system. I have over 120 apps, it's hard to keep count. Maybe something similar to iTunes? Organizing them automatically alphabetically, most used, by genre, something?

    - Implement landscape keyboard support in all settings screens and universally in all applications

    - In the calendar if appointment location is address, make it freaking clickable please and link to map! and the ability to drag appointments in day(/week)/month view to change the date and time

    - Allow voice mails to be ‘shared’ like voice memos

    - Sync voice mails via iTunes and allow backup/archiving

    - Phone: on ‘Recents’, add ‘In’ and ‘Out’ options to ‘All’ and ‘Missed’, allowing you to filter only for incoming and outgoing calls

    - Allow individual contacts to be made into home screen icons – tap to dial pre-defined number

    - An alarm clock that works even of the phone is off

    - Wireless Syncing. 'Nuf said.

    - Printing. Yay!


    That's all for now. For now...

    Works better than my PC.

    People always complain about the iPhone because of AT&T's service, or there lack of - UNLESS you live on the west coast, particularly the northwest, in which case you're getting some of the best cellular service out of all carriers in the US. So if you live there like I do Verizon and Sprint can suck it. I always have full bars, always have fast 3G, never drop calls, never fail a text, can always use the internet... everything, well, just works.

    If I can't use the 5 as a hover craft, Apple isn't advancing quickly enough.

    I want speech to text built in. I want to be able to change the built in keyboard with an app.

    That's about the only big things I miss in my iPhone 4

    I would like to this feature..

    The phone senses when you are spending more time on it than you are with the people/person you are with or when you are at work, and shuts itself off for 4 hours, any attempt to circumvent the temporary block and the phone self destructs.

    These. and an easier way for me to assign different message and ringtones to people. It's a pain in the arse.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    also, don't turn the screen sideways automatically, because sometimes I want to lay in bed and text/surf the internet horizontally!
