i would like to see a 4 inch screen (at least) for an iphone 5 & iPod touch 5 with a much faster processor and more pixels. Apple should add more customization on the iDevices like themes and more features like android & being able to move icons to anywhere.

I think this thread should be categorized under "OTHER DISCUSSION" being its not relevant to General Game discussion but anyway...

For the iPad 2, I'm hoping for:
- Smaller overall size.
- Front/rear facing camera.
- flash enabled.
- possible USB port(I know this wont happen but one can wish right?).


Anything else would be welcomed, but those would be the main things I'd hope for. I cant comment on 5G because I skip generations on iPurchasing(even numbers).

Hardware: better front camera, better battery, better/louder speakers... Probably more...

Software: keyboard swipe, iChat, internet tethering (I thought we already did get that with iOS 3?), more supported video formats... There's a long list...

Im pretty sure they'll add just enough features for people to justify buying it, but not enough that they wont have more features to add to the 6th gen devices. And people will buy them, including me.

I think the 5th generation iPhone/iPod Touch will be a relatively minor upgrade. Like a better battery life, fixed antennae issue and maybe a better camera. I'll probably skip it and get the 6th or 7th iPhone instead.
