Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) just unveiled their latest generation of the iPhone, and although it’s still considered a nice upgrade, there are still some things that need to change. The iPhone 6 needs more than just a few upgrades to really make an impact.
Expectations for iPhone 6
According to Lance Whitney for CNET, there are six things Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) should offer with the next iPhone. His list includes a bigger screen, near-field communication, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, improved battery life, higher-pixel camera, and 128GB version. He then goes into further detail about why these features are important.
Crucial feature to be added in iPhone 6
NFC is a crucial feature that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) really should offer with their next phone. Whitney explains the importance of such a feature, stating: “Rumors that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would adopt NFC (near-field communications) — most often talked about in connection with mobile payments, but potentially useful for a lot of things — have bounced around the past couple of years. But the technology is still a no-show. Again, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) likes to wait until a market has ironed out all the kinks before it jumps in. A lot of companies have been dabbling with NFC, and several rival smartphones support it. Still, NFC has a way to go before it reaches true consumer adoption. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is likely waiting for that to happen, but next year may be the right time to finally offer it. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s support of NFC could go a long way in helping drive the technology.”
Camera for iPhone 6
A camera with higher-pixels is another must for the next generation of iPhones or iPhone 6. Although Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has improved the camera for the iPhone 5S, it’s still the same 8-megapixel camera. Even the Nokia Lumia (which trails behind Apple and Android-based brands) offers a better camera with higher-pixels. As for the other must-have features like higher storage capacity, better battery life, and better wi-fi, they are just as integral when it comes to a new phone.
