Apple needs to promote Swift Shopper, a universal mobile checkout that works practically everywhere. It decreases checkout times by 75% Stores will save 100$s of millions and shoppers save valuable time. Stores are implementing an HOV lane using Swift Shopper. If Apple promoted this on their phone, people would be using their phones as often as they use their credit cards.

ThatGÇÖs it? Color and NFC?
* How about a wider phone? Even women with small hands tell me the iPhone is annoying size wise.
* How about an SD Card slot? Maybe I want my stuff on an SD Card. Maybe I want more memory.
* How about a better word substitution program? Everyone I know with iPhone hates that feature. BlackBerryGÇÖs is great.
* How about one way sync with outlook? iPhone doesnGÇÖt respect Outlook but a lot of
people use it.
What a junky article. Its like a 3rd grader trying to add words to expand his two sentence paper. How did you get this job?

What? You want him to make up stuff that is not real? He's just telling you what he has heard on the rumor mill. It is not his fault that Apple is not adding a slew of new features :|

And yet their sales, revenues and profits keep climbing. Mobile activations are projected to double by the end of 2016. Don't think anyone in that space(mobile) is sweating too much

re: iPhone Needs More Than Gold To Regain Mojo
It's called "FOOLS GOLD"...!!!! Even though Apple have good sells, they are slowly losing the smartphone market. Without real innovations on new phones, people realized that a phone brand is not worth it when it lacks so many features.. If Apple don't innovate in their new phones, they will begin to slide harder. After 20 years of being an Apple fan and still owning many Apple devices, I cannot see myself buying any obsoleted iphone again. Everytime I bought the next iphone, it was like buying the same phone again. My other phone, which I will not name because I don't want to spark naive Apple blind fan stupidity, has so many more additional and useful features for real work and other practical aspects, that Apple will have to do a lot better to gain back the old/wiser/deep-pocket former Apple fans like me (which there are a lot).

I agree with a lot of your points. I think Apple's stubbornness to add NFC technology and other innovations will catch up with them later, much like Blackberry's lack of innovation stalled sales, and Apple and Samsung were able to overtake them in the smartphone market.

Ok forget color, if apple wants to grow it's share it needs to release different screen sizes 3.3 to 5.5, one size screen dose not fit all, I know people that either left iphone or just went to Android as their first smart phone just for the larger screen, I know I'm one I left iphone for an HTC Titan and it's 4.7" screen. Apple say this again and again One size dose not fit all, One size dose not fit all.

Most IPhone users I know are really happy to have a reasonably capable smart phone that does most stuff. It has a Mothership (ITunes) to manage literally everything and a benevolent(?) Overlord (Apple) to protect them from the dark forces. They don't want to tweak things and they don't have a problem with Apple setting their limits and engineering the system to discourage non-Apple enhancements and encourage full replacement phones when the battery goes bad.

This is cool. I like to tweak and customize and I'm glad the market is big enough to support both kinds of users.

I am very much looking forward to the new Mac Pro "smokestack", with enough processing power to blow past 100's of these weak, stupid phones. Who ever got any actual work done with an iPhone anyway?

Color on an iPhone is mostly ridiculous since most phones get covered anyway. It's not really something the iPhone has lacked.
