The iPhone 6 was just released into the wild last week, and so far it’s selling like crazy.
People are loving the bigger screen, the better camera specs, and the new larger sizes.
Leading up to the Apple event on Sept. 9, though, there was a ton of speculation and rumours bouncing around about what the iPhone 6 would possibly have. We pretty much knew the device would come in two sizes as far back as February. And we even had an inkling that the camera lens would protrude.
But then there are the rumours that didn’t pan out. So let’s raise a glass to those guys, and hopefully we’ll see them in the next iteration of the phone, or at least the iPhone 7 a few years from now.
We thought we'd see GT Advanced Technology's ultra-durable sapphire glass on the iPhone 6 display, but Apple only put it on the camera. It's also going to be used in the upcoming Apple Watch.
Sapphire is more scratch resistant than Corning's Gorilla Glass, which has been used on previous iPhone models.
Upgrading the iPhone's display would make buying the pricey phones that much more bearable.
We realise the iPhone 6 just gave users a major display upgrade, but we think there's no such thing as a display with too many pixels.
Since Apple released the iPhone 6 Plus, users will be watching even more video, and they will need a display with the resolution to match.
When the iPhone 6 came out, Apple insider John Gruber had just one question: Where's the 32GB model?
We agree with Gruber. Apple should nix the 16GB iPhone and give the base model 32GB of storage, enough for most people's music and photos.
Although we don't think Apple will add removable storage to the iPhone anytime soon, it would making customising the smartphone a whole lot easier, and potentially less expensive.
Now that apps like Snapchat and WhatsApp have become ubiquitous, a high-quality selfie camera is more important than ever.
We won't stop asking for a better front-facing camera until selfies look like they were shot by professionals.
The Home button is already used to talk to Siri and return users to their home screen, but we think there are situation-specific opportunities to use the Home button for other functions.
It would be cool if you could program it to, say, open the Camera if you tapped it three times. Or maybe a double-long-press could open up your Spotify app.
To top it all off, a waterproof iPhone 7 would be fantastic. Samsung has already begun waterproofing its smartphones.
Obviously this shouldn't come at the expense of the iPhone's sleek form factor, but it would be yet another reason for Apple fans to wait in line for the company's next flagship device.
