“Unlike any other brand, Apple products have had a lure on the global consumer,” Richard Saintvilus writes for TheStreet. “The iPhone 6 won’t be any different.”
“In September 2012, after the release of the iPhone 5, Cook asked consumers for feedback. More specifically, he wanted to know what features the iPhone 5 lacked and what device buyers would change if given the chance. These answers were revealed in the patent case between Apple and Samsung,” Saintvilus writes. “According to documents presented during the trial, consumers asked Apple for longer battery life, improved mapping and a bigger screen — in that order.”
“It is said Apple plans to release two different versions of the iPhone 6. One will have a 4.7-inch screen and the other will have 5.5-inch screen. The latter version is what everyone is excited about. It is expected to carry a display size of 2272×1280,” Saintvilus writes. “The phone is also expected to sport the A8 chip with quad core processor… [which] consumes less power and offers faster multitasking. This means longer battery life. And if Tim Cook adheres to the consumer feedback, the quad core will kill two birds with one stone.”
“The third item on the consumers’ wish list was an improved mapping feature,” Saintvilus writes. “Tim Cook has listened to that demand as well. For all of the complaints about how Apple doesn’t make acquisitions, it has, in fact, acquired 23 companies over the past 16 months.”
