Here’s a shocking fact – Smartphones also make calls and send texts! Amazing, right?
Sarcasm aside, it’s becoming clearer with ever month that passes that the only way Smartphones are able to gain a lead over their rivals and really strike a consumer chord if they can successfully masquerade as other devices. Cell-phones first became MP3 players, then cameras, then video cameras and are now for all intents and purposes fully-functional pocket-laptops.
As such, it’s always worth looking at how Smartphones are actually being used aside from their native functions to determine what might be the shrewdest move to make next.
…and so, onto the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6.
New research had confirmed that the iPhone 5 has been adopted by millions as a full-on replacement for their digital cameras, having registered millions more images on Flickr than rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and S2. What’s more, more images taken means more data usage which means more money for carriers.
Or in other words, for Apple to focus heavily on the cameras earmarked for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 could prove to be seriously effectively strategy. And of course, at this stage in the game it takes far more than a beefed-up megapixel count to get it right.
This is where prior rumors begin to creep into the equation again, suggesting various goodies for the iPhone 5S and 6 like interchangeable lenses, wide-angle sensors, water-resistant properties and any number of further enhancements.
What’s more, simply focusing on the camera rather than the rest of the device as a whole would go some way to explaining why considerably less appears to have been invested in production of the iPhone 5S and 6 than previous models – the core makeup of the iPhone 5 is already all it needs to be and nothing that isn’t broken is on Apple’s list of priorities for fixing.
