One more thing about the iPhone 6. Or maybe 7, 8, or 9, but it's coming soon.
According to a New York Times report, big innovations in smart phones are in the works. In a few years, the look and function of the iPhone and others could be vastly different thanks to recent breakthroughs in technology.
In the future, your phone may be on your face instead of in your pocket. Engineers working on "wearable computers" have already developed eyeglass frames that display texts, e-mails, and other information on a screen in front of your eye.
A new flexible, thin, strong glass has already been developed so smart phones could have more curves. You could wear one on your wrist. Kind of like Dick Tracy's two-way wrist-radio?
Apple has already filed for a patent on a small fuel-cell power supply that could lead to a phone you only have to charge once every few weeks.
And mobile payment systems incorporated into smart phones will replace your credit cards. You'll be able to make payments wirelessly at cash registers.
The only thing that won't change is we'll still be doing news stories about people waiting in line for hours to place their pre-orders for the iPhone 10.
