Apple is expected to announce the next-generation iPhone in the coming months, at the end of Q2 or early Q3. With an October release penciled in by analysts, we have less than six months before the world's most popular smartphone hits the store shelves.
Since the iPad 3's release earlier this month, Apple has given us a glimpse as to what could be coming in the next iteration of its smartphone, the iPhone. We'll explore what consumers and business users want in a smartphone, as well as giving a prediction score to gauge the likelihood of Apple implementing such a feature into the smartphone.
Feel free to leave your own comments on what you would like to see in the next iPhone.

Apple brought out the iPad 3 with an advanced A5X dual-core processor with quad core graphics. This gives some serious 'oomph' to the tablet, allowing fantastic games with extremely high-definition graphics to be played. Amidst 'Warmgate', where the device was tested to be 13°F hotter than the iPad 2 at its peak, Apple could still throw in a faster processor to make the smartphone one of if not the most powerful smartphone in the world.
But Apple could always keep the A5X processor in the iPhone 5. With a smaller screen size, yet still powerful Retina display; it may not even be necessary for an A6 chip. Frankly, it all depends on 'Warmgate' and how that plays out, and how much memory and processing capacity iOS 6 needs to run.
