The iPhone 5 is here and millions of people will buy it and love it. But its arrival also starts the clock ticking on the next iPhone. Approximately a year from now Apple will have a new model, which may be the iPhone 6 or simply be another iteration of the 5 (a lot of people have their money on a 5S).
What will the next iPhone have that this one doesn't? That I don't know, but I do have a wish list for what I'd like it to have.

As usual, you can agree or disagree with my picks, and feel free to suggest your own. The list is shorter this time because Apple did include some features in the iPhone 5 (and iOS 6) that had appeared in my iPhone most-wanted list. Also, I decided to remove features from the list that I knew Apple had no chance of including, such as expandable memory, a removable battery, a micro-HDMI out, and a standard micro-USB port instead of its new Lightning port.
Note: the nine items in the list are ordered from least important to most in a reverse countdown. I've also included what I think are the odds of Apple actually implementing each request.
