Next Apple iPhone might feature a smart stylus, rumor suggests - read the full textAs the rumor has it Apple might be working on a smart stylus for its next-gen iPhone 6. It should work the similar way as the Note and Note II S-Pens but support even more functionality. You should definitely take this one with a healthy pinch of salt as it's coming from The Sun, which is not...

Surely, you must be joking. Although there are several stylus-patents on the file, Apple wouldn't do what it detested doing with the stylus. It's a phone!

I guess Apple will call there new iPhone the "Apple iNote" considering this feature is blatantly stolen from Samsung.

Whos the copycat now?

I love this idea it is innovation apple style, like facetime and the widget and my Favourite being able to have more than one screen to put your widgets on. like none of the are copied. come on apple do something that's not been done before or thieved from someone else and call "an apple innovation that changes the way we use our smartphones" or some bullsquirt like that. the stylus has come, gone and come back. if it were great every galaxy phone would have one... so it looks like apple have lost the ability to innovate. i've already put money on apple inc shares to drop below $300 after the iphone 5S/6 plus watch are announced. looking forward to the 500.000 i'll get back easy money

> In reply to optimus- @ 2013-03-07 08:25 from tUwV - click to readMost changes is in the application and developer api (more tools to make app better)..

iOS experience is in the applications .. not in the launcher itself.. Anything happen to the applications.. apple will be in serious trouble.

The launcher is already very well done IMO, one quick glance at the homescreen without touching, you can see: time/date/connection/telco/battery/notification badges. And the information is not duplicated and all over the place.

Simple yes.. no customise yeah. But thats how some people like it. If you really dying to customise .. u can still jailbreak.

But its not all sunshine and good thou. iOS6 is the worse update to date, mainly the changes to the core applications.. ie. bad themes, potcast moved out .. slow update fixes, app store bloated slow etc.. they have to make up for iOS7.

Apple is giving a chance for samsung or andoird to grow. Why. Omce you make you platform opensource they are done.2nd your phone is to small for comfortable browsing. 6 inch is good for a phablet.3rd punchy colour retina display that is excellent umder the sun. Your display atent good at all under the sun.4rd better hardware like processor please up till now still using dual core o god. Apple you are to proud to stay put nokia. Someday android will take ip your place.

There's always a bottle neck in everything. So I am strongly believed even with Steve Jobs around, there's hardly any other people products that he could "Copy" and then "Re-invent" and making above 70% profit margin. Just look at fallen ipod, ipad, mac pc/laptop and you'll know what I mean.

With Steve gone, it could be great thign to happen in Apple. At least now they can do things whatever Steve does not allow or disagree to do so. So it's "Re-volve" time for Tim and Apple now instead of the done and gone Steve old "re-invent" thinking.

It's funny how thing changes from Steve jobs self claiming "Post PC Era", now turned out to be "Post Apple Era" within 1.5 year.

Look like Microsoft, Google, Samsung and the rest of the big name in personal and mobile computing again will continue shines like a Diamond again at the expense of fallen Apple.

Apple will make a stylus based phone, will sue firstly Samsung, and then sue all the other companies that had stylus' ages ago like Palm and HTC and what not, claim that it was their idea to bring the stylus form factor to the world.

They will then go on to sue companies that make actual pens, because those who buy Apple products are too dumb to realise the difference.
