8 Things the iPhone 5 Still Can't Do

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/8-thin...-can-t-do.html

In terms of specs, performance, and features, the iPhone 5 is Apple's best to date. This doesn't mean it's as good as it could be, however.

There were a few egregious omissions from the keynote presentation features that we not only want in our iPhone, but that we feel are overdue.


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. For example, you can't use Passbook to wirelessly send money to a friend via PayPal.

NFC also lets you beam content between devices just by tapping them together. Samsung's Galaxy S III takes advantage of this feature.


Swype
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.



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.



A 128 GB option

The iPod Classic offered 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.


Non-proprietary dock connection

We've never understood why our iPhones can't use a standard USB port and a standard USB cable to sync. Now the iPhone 5 introduces a new micro-dock connection requiring the use of its own special cable.

If you want to use your old sync cables, you have to buy this $29 adapter.



A micro-HDMI port

Once again, if you want to get video off of your phone, it requires the use of a special adapter. (Unless you buy a $99 Apple TV.) The Kindle Fire HD and several Android phones use a micro-HDMI port, letting you run a cable straight from your tablet to the television.

This makes it easier, better, and more affordable for the user.



Replaceable battery

The battery life on the iPhone 5 has seen some nice improvements, but for the power users who are glued to their phones all day, it won't suffice.

We'd love to be able to carry an additional fully-charged iPhone battery that we could pop in whenever the first one bites the dust.


While we're at it, better battery life!

The iPhone 5's battery life is about the same as the iPhone 4S'. Yes, it has a bigger battery, but the new 4G LTE radio and bigger screen use up a lot of that extra power. We wish Apple had included a better battery in the iPhone 5 like the one on Motorola's Droid Razr Maxx. The Razr Maxx can last several hours longer than the iPhone 5.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Swype. I'd be lost without SwiftKey, though.

SwiftKey is great. Its prediction is fantastic and really does save a lot of keystrokes.
What kind of phone do you have?

I have to agree. I didn't like Swype at all.

And if you want HDMI out for your iOS device, the Apple Digital A/V adapter works very well. I have XBMC on my iPad, and I can output that via HDMI. Very handy for traveling and such. Output 1080p is purtty.

I have no idea if they'll have a solution for new devices using the Lightning connector though. Reducing the pinout like they did has removed the video out functionality according to Apple. That's a hot load of horse shit as far as I'm concerned.

I'd be dumbfounded if they didn't have SOME way to do video output.

Sweet, thanks!

AirPlay. I use AirVideo to pipe video (any format including AVI and MKV) stored on my server to the TV all the time. Audio too, for that matter.

Plugging a phone or an iPad into a TV across the room seems like ~2003 when I had RCA cables going from my laptop to my stereo.

AirPlay was supposed to be some kind of published standard, but not a lot of AV outfits seem to have picked it up. They're trying to get rid of cables and connectors all together at this point, which is the way of the future.

It's called iTunes match. I can get to all my music whenever I want.

Either of these do require digging a little deeper into the whole Apple ecosystem than just buying one thing without any additional services, but it all works really really well together.

What if we don't want all of the additional services? What if we just want the device to work like every other device we have? Oh that's right, Apple can't gouge us for money if they allow that.

I've got the same types of services with Google as well as on my own NAS at home.

This just in.... Apple evidently added a "Laser keyboard" and "Holographic display" to its new model....



Silly reporter found an online video of several concept ideas that dont' exist, and went ahead and attributed it to the new phone....
