Apple iPhone 6 Wishlist: Expectations Know No Bounds

September 20, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The iPhone 5S and 5C have been officially announced and will be soon available on the market. And like many others, we are already looking forward to the next iPhone.

Yes! We are quite greedy. Moreover, it would be great fun to have a wish list of specifications we would like to see in the upcoming iPhone device.

If Apple sticks to the nomenclature, the next iPhone might be called the iPhone 6. And, the first thing in our wish list for the iPhone 6 is a better Siri.

Dream. iPhone

Apple’s built-in voice control feature called Siri has improved with the introduction of iPhone 5 and iOS7. Reportedly, Siri would get new features and a performance bump in the iPhone 5S.

For example, it will offer the option to choose between a male and female voice. Although this in-built voice control feature might need a couple of years to develop as a true personal assistant, we wish a better Siri in the iPhone 6.

The next thing Apple needs to offer in the iPhone 6 has to be NFC (near-field communications). Experts have already predicted that the upcoming (though we don’t know when) iPhone 6 would support NFC technology.

Many rival smartphones are already offering this feature, but Apple has still not shown any interest in including the NFC feature in its iPhones. May be Apple is thinking that NFC needs a revamp before being introduced in its smartphones.

It could be also possible that Apple may never bring NFC to its mobile devices and will continue developing its own mobile payments solution like Passbook.

For those who want to charge their smartphone using inductive wireless charging, they now need to purchase a charging case and charging mat separately. But, if you have a built-in inductive charging chip in your smartphone, you just need a mat to charge your phone’s battery.

Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) has introduced a new standard for inductive charging called Qi, so that smartphone makers can include Qi chips into their devices. Smartphones like Nokia Lumia 920 are already offering wireless charging. We just wish the iPhone 6 will also get some sort of inductive-charging chip integrated into it. But the chances of implementation of such kind of a chip are just 10 percent.

As you all know, Apple is always keen to improve its iPhone camera with every iteration. The latest iPhone 5S comes with 8 megapixel camera. Improving the quality of the camera and its flash performance is the best method to attract more customers for buying the new edition of the phone. So, we are hoping for an improved camera on the iPhone 6.

We would also like to see a built-in IR in the upcoming iPhone, so that it can turn into a universal remote. But we see little chances of implementation of in-built IR in the iPhone 6.  But then, who knows!

Rumors are rife that Apple has been testing larger screen sizes too. And, if it follows this habit, Apple will most likely offer the new model with a larger 4.7 or 4.8 inch screen in 2014.

It could be also possible that, in future, Apple will offer iPhones in different sizes, may be small screen for the cheaper version and a big screen size for the iPhone 6.

What’s your wish?
