With the launch of a new Apple iPhone coming soon, I found my self wondering what it would take for me to fork out $1,000 on a new device. Here are some of my feature requests.
- Water proof to 30 meters
- VR dual-lens cameras
- Simultaneous front and rear camera recording
- 12 hour battery
- 128GB storage with 256 and 512 GB options
- USB-C with lightning
Virtual Reality & Pro
I know, a bit much. This crosses over into iPad Pro territory, right. However, this setup would blow the competition (Samsung) off the map. Forget rounded, edge-less bezels and give me VR and augmented reality.
Give me water proofing so on my vacation I’m not leaving my camera phone at home!
Give me more battery to record and edit on the go.
Push the apple watch performance to include a SIM card and make the iPhone stand on its own.
Push the iPad Pro to include a mac Sync mode and finally give the Mac touch and pencil.
Push the Mac into Pro territory with ECC memory and maximum core count.
Software and Hardware
Usually hardware vendors are hamstrung with terrible software learning curves and a half baked OS. Apple is lucky in that it has great software that can easily take advantage of additional RAM and CPU cores with little modification.
By enhancing the peripheral devices, they elevate the Mac.
If Apple is hoping to get me back into spending lots of new money on hardware, I need it to scream state of the art.
