Keeping in view of various disasters that had hit iPhone 5 including ‘Maps Saga’, it seems necessary for Apple to rejuvenate its flagship smartphone to keep its base strong.
So far following five features have been listed which would be part of next iPhone, you can name it iPhone 5S or iPhone 6.
Smart Rear camera:
Not a very smart camera right now in available iPhone series phones, the next version could have a real smart camera system.
“The iPhone 5S is still months away from mass production, but our source suspects that the star feature will be an upgraded rear camera — perhaps featuring Sony’s 13-Megapixel sensor, plus the aforementioned flash upgrade,” iLounge Editor-in-Chief Jeremy Horwitz said in a recent post.
Similarly an analyst, considered best in predicting Apple’s product, says new iPhone will be having a better camera system perhaps including rear side with f2.0 aperture and enhanced photo-taking with a “smart LED flash”.
Replacing username and password phenomena from iPhones, Apple is likely to introduce an integrated fingerpoint sensor.
The sensor will be placed on home button of iPhone, the only button on its face, giving it an edge over Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and Windows phones.
It’s also logical after Apple’s purchase of AuthenTec in July last year to introduce fingerpoint sensor in iPhone 5S or iPhone 6.
Timer for Photographer
Usually when taking picture of your family or a group of friends it’s come to your mind that you should be the part of this picture. But in self-timing cameras it’s very hard to get a better picture as most of the time photographer has to be in haste to reach his spot before the camera could snap.
To resolve this, Apple has already taken a patent with name self-timer which can identify photographer’s face before taking the photo. The timer function asks photographer whether he wants to be the part of the picture or not. If photographer nodded in yes then iPhone will not take the snap until it does not recognize photographer’s face.
Photography in 3-D photography
Taking another step to sustain its positioning of leading technology company, Apple may be the first to introduce 3-D photography in its smartphone, now a major source of picture-taking instead of camera.
According to International Business Times, Apple’s patented solution integrates systems, tools and methods to capture a 3-D image by using multiple sensors and cameras.
“One sensor would capture a polarizing image, while two other sensors would capture two different nonpolarizing images, and Apple’s system would combine the images into a composite.”
Forget Retina Display! Now IGZO display is on
Display is the edge of Apple’s iDevices as compared to other manufacturers so far. It has put a great deal of skills, investment and time to improve display technology for its devices.
The Apple’s eye could be now on Sharp’s IGZO display technology for its next iPhone device instead of using its Retina Display.
According to Apple analyst Horace Dediu Apple has made a massive $2.3 billion investment in “product tooling, manufacturing process equipment and infrastructure,”. The amount was believed to be a package to Sharp to overcome its financial straits.
IGZO display technology is thin, tough and a good handler of higher screen densities. It’s reported capacity is 330 ppi while even iPad 4’s density is only 240 ppi. It’s another benefit is its lower consumption of power which is a real demand of iPhone users.
