While the world is going gaga over the new Android phone launches every other weekend, we all know what the fact is. And yes, let me shout it out loud here on “ShoutMeLoud” in crystal clear words. The iPhone remains to be the most desirable. It recently got felicitated as the Gadget Show’s Gadget of the Decade and it has been awarded year after year after year. And with rumours fast spreading of a possible iPhone release next year, we cannot stop ourselves from demanding these seven possible changes that we want from the iPhone. So here we go.
Front facing Camera -for video chat
To be honest, I do not know why Apple is still keeping us away from this particular feature. It only makes sense with an internet enabled smartphone with Fring and Skype being available as free apps to be able to make Video Calls. And a front facing camera is the only logical way through which we can video chat while watching our mate’s face on the other end of the chat. C’mon guys at Cupertino. Hear us out.
I know it is not an essential one. But c’mon. With London having almost 15-20 stations, we love our FM Radio. Spotify and Lala stream music over the internet and also the iPhone’s memory contains enough space to carry your own music. But the rush that you get when someone plays your favourite track -especially Aerosmith over the radio when you’re on a bus, stuck in a traffic jam at 8:30am in the morning, just uplifts your day. And it is only fair that the iPhone has one when the neighbouring guy with an HTC Tattoo can show off his HTC Radio.
We have been crying it out loud since the first iPhone released. And will not stop until Mr.Jobs listens to us. I know there are no signs of this happening in the not-so-distant future.But still, it is worth an effort, just asking for it. Puhleez Mr.Jobs. I can have detachable batteries?
With flash memory cards, SD, MicroSD and the like getting smaller and smaller, and prices taking a nose dive, why not rectify this big shortcoming of the iPhone and give us, the users, the freedom to expand our memory according to our needs and not select a pre-allotted memory size on the model.
A New iPhone OS.
I know the iPhone OS has gone through firmware upgrades and the lot, but let’s make this revolutionary with the new decade and all. Surprise us with something dashing. A new GUI, a new work flow, dashboard. Make touchscreen work better. I don’t know how, but just do it!
Friggin better headphones/earphones.
We all know that iPhone headphones suck big time. I know we can go for Sennheiser ones, but why doesn’t Apple collaborate with them and offer it in the boxed set. Am I asking for too much?
lower price Or cheaper version.
The iPhone is still not cheap. No matter how much subsidy the carriers offer, it is far from cheap, and that includes even the 8GB version.[Comparative study of the price of the iPhone in the UK]. I just want to experience those awesome Apps that developers have made for you iPhone. But I don’t want to shell out a massive sum of my monthly mortgage over a phone. Neither would I consider selling my kidney for it. So please, do us a favour this festive season. Release the a 3GS 8GB version or surprise us with an iPhone Nano on a price that suits my pocket.
So there you go. That’s my list of the seven things I want on the new iPhone. What did you think about it and what else would you’ve liked to add to this list? Shout it out in the comments.
