There are many rumors revolving around the upcoming Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 5S and iPhone 6. Although it has yet to be confirmed, it’s most probable that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will release the iPhone 5S this year and the iPhone 6 next year. It’s also important to point out that the iPhone 5S will be a small upgrade from the iPhone 5, while the iPhone 6 will be a more significant upgrade.
Tech Fans Hopes For Apple’s iPhone 6
What are tech fans hoping for the most with the upcoming iPhone 6? Senior Editor for CNET Donald Bell explains what was missing from the iPhone 5 and what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) should add to the next iPhone. In the video, he starts with number 5: near-field communication(NFC) which allows users to make payment with their phone or share things like contacts or files by placing the phone over a sensor. Number 4 is higher capacity. He said the average iPhone user has about more than 100 apps. That along with videos, photos, music, and HD content, the iPhone will fill up it’s capacity fast. He suggested that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) increases the capacity or add a microSD card slot.
Number 3 is biometric security which would protect the phone even more by reading your finger print. Currently, anyone can access anyone’s iPhone with a simple swipe to unlock the screen. Number 2 is wireless charging. It’s surprising that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) didn’t design a phone that could be charged by a wireless charging plate. The number one feature Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) should have added to the iPhone 5 was better battery life. Apparently, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) thinks customers want a thinner phone but in reality, most customers want better battery life.
Also mentioned in the video is the worst new feature found on the iPhone 5: the lightening port. It may be smaller in size but that’s it. It doesn’t add design or function to phone.
iPhone 6 Release:
The iPhone 5S (or possibly the iPhone 6) will likely debut later this summer or early autumn.
