iPhone 5S Wish List: 10 Features It Positively Must Have
NEWS ANALYSIS: Apple’s iPhone 5S is rumored to be launching in the first half of 2013. If that happens, what features must it have to be successful?A report surfaced recently, saying that Apple is currently working on a new smartphone, called the iPhone 5S. That device will be available towards the middle part of 2013. Given expected reappearance of the “S” in the device’s name, it would appear that Apple is following the same strategy with the iPhone 5 as it did the 3G and 4: launch a new product one year and a nominal upgrade the next. Whenever the “S” is attached to a device, customers know to expect the same design with some new features. But just because Apple has made that move time and again, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll need to follow that plan in 2013. In fact, it would be nice if Apple actually delivered a more significant upgrade to the iPhone 5. As nice as that smartphone is, and as well-designed as it might be, it’s not perfect. Apple left some key features out of the iPhone 5. Customers took notice and are not too happy about it. So, let’s cut through Apple’s marketing speak and get down to the features that should be built into an updated iPhone 5. Apple’s current flagship smartphone is great, but it has room for improvement.
