    scream
    In terms of specs, performance, and features, the iPhone 5S is Apple's best to date.
    This doesn't mean it's as good as it could be, however.
    There are a few egregious omissions here – features that we not only want in our iPhone, but that we feel are overdue.SD card support for extra storage
    We'd like to be able to extend our device's storage capability beyond the 64 GB maximum. History suggests that external SD card support isn't going to be in a mobile Apple device any time soon. Or ever.
    NFC for mobile payments
    Instead of building NFC into the iPhone, Apple would rather have you use its Passbook system, which lets lets users store tickets, gift cards, boarding passes, and the like.
    It can handle some (but definitely not all) of the tasks that you might use NFC for. NFC also lets you beam content between devices just by tapping them together.
    An improved texting solution on the keyboard, like Swype.
    Swype is something of a mainstay on Android phones. Instead of tapping out your texts letter by letter, you can drag your finger over them without lifting it. The end result is that you get your message out much more quickly.
    Let's implement speedier texting on iPhone!
    Some good news: Apple's new iPhone software, iOS 8, will let users install third-party keyboards like Swype. It's coming this fall.
    A 128 GB option
    The iPod Classic offers users 160 GB of music and video capacity. Many people (ourselves included) had no problem filling it right up.
    Now that the iPhone is an easy replacement for your old iPod, we'd love to be able to carry the same amount of content around with us without having to pick and choose what stays at home.
