OK, so many of us have had our flashy new iPhone 5Ss for a few days now. (Condolences to those who haven't.) But anyhow, now that we've had adequate time to get acquainted with these and figure out what's missing, let's start requesting and speculating what Apply might finally give us in the iPhone 6, out next fall.

@chris, you may want to add a new section to the forums.

As far as hardware goes, I'm expecting a new design along with the option for a bigger screen, a faster processor and improved camera optics. I don't think they'll do NFC.

well i think it's safe to say 128gb will happen for sure. their are already 128gb micro sd-cards so it's only a matter of time before they are integraded into the phones

A larger screen, improved SoC, camera optics and more RAM.
Well, you got two of those in the 5s. I'm not sure what the fascination is with more RAM, though. I know some Androids have more RAM than the iPhone, but my belief is that they need it due to the inherent inefficiency of the architecture and poor hardware/software integration.

I agree with ZR on this one. Although we got a processor upgrade this year, it's not something they can stop upgrading each year. And it wouldn't make much sense to continue to upgrade the processor each year but leave the RAM where it is now. The camera optics can be improved even more next year as well.

More RAM for the new 64-bit architecture, I guess. I think Android allows multitasking which more RAM is needed. I also think the more complex the apps get for iOS, the more RAM is going to be needed. Wouldn't more RAM allow faster photo and video editing?

I agree with Chris with regards to the screen size. 4.8 would be great but I still want to be able to "one hand it". I think that if Apple ups their game with a larger screen they will sell a ton more phones than the 5s did on the first weekend.
