Apple calls the iPhone 5s “forward thinking,” and there are plenty of features that back up that claim. This sequel sports a faster A7 processor with an advanced 64-bit architecture and a new TouchID fingerprint sensor that you can use to unlock the device and make purchases. You’ll also find an upgraded camera with a larger sensor, larger pixels and true tone flash. However, the 5s doesn’t have everything we want in an iPhone, and it’s never too early to start dreaming up what could be next. Here’s our wish list of features for the iPhone 6.
When Reuters reported that Apple had been experimenting with larger 5.7-inch displays, we had hoped to see an iPhablet added to the iDevice lineup. Apple increased the screen size of its smartphones from 3.5-inches to 4 inches with the iPhone 5 last year, but it stuck with that size on the iPhone 5s. This size is still significantly smaller than other successful smartphones on the market, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 (5 inches) and HTC One (4.7 inches).
A larger screen would make the iPhone 6 a better device for watching movies, surfing the web and playing games. You’d also get a bigger keyboard, which would make it easier to type. With iWork, iPhoto and iMovie coming to iOS 7 for free, we could use a little more real estate. We’re also hoping and expecting that Apple will up the resolution on the iPhone 6 to at least full HD (1920 x 1080) up from today’s standard def affair (1136 x 640).
