    Lighter weight and more storage, without giving up battery life!

    Lighter, proper hdmi output, less proprietary connectors and maybe the ipad mini form factor.

    I wish it came with color options like the ipod 5th generation. Would be nice to have more options.

    That could happen since they will like go with the body design inspired by the 5th iPod touch, as they did with the mini.

    I wish they'd go with a more useful design. The current design is attractive but impractical. I'm waiting for my iPad 4 case to arrive and ipad 4 is slippery without a case, plus the frame edge digs into your hands. I don't see the point of attractive design that you have to cover to make useful.

    Some better speakers also would be great. Even my iPhone 4S, Kindle Fire original and Kindle Fire HD, and Samsung Galaxy Note have better speakers, and they're all cheaper than my iPad.

    Ok, so optional color choices and have an improved ergonomically designed form to the next ipad. That's seems to be more realistic and make it more functional to use.

    I think they will improve the edge design (I don't like the knife edge either). I don't believe they will go away from the metal back, however. All those accessory makers will continue to make a living. :)

    I doubt they'll move away from the metal back, too, at least in the foreseeable future.

    How about this............

    I like it the way it is........ :D
    Nothing is ever perfect and you change something to suit some people and someone else won't like it.
    I'm thrilled every time I fire it up.


    The edge doesn't both me at all as I almost always use my Bluetooth keyboard case.......

    That seems obvious, but this thread is about individual preferences, lol.

    So if Apple asked you, you'd say you like it how it is and you're thrilled? OK, so how is Apple going to sell you a new model? Not that you can't love your iPad as-is, but the thread is about what changes individual users would like to see as Apple works on newer models.

    You better re-read the op's post.............I gave my response and don't need it scrutinized by you because it doesn't fit your idea of the thread.

    btw - Maybe you should clear out your inbox so someone could send you a message?

    I'd like it to be lighter too, and colors would be cool, also I'd love to be able to side load apps from other app stores,

    Curious: What kind of apps would you like to side load? (I'm thinking that unlikely because Apple wants to maintain the quality of the user experience.)

    Also, apps have to be written for the device they're intended to run on. That's why an Android app, for example, wouldn't work on an iOS device, even if you could somehow download it.

    I would like a 128 gig Model. In addition, I would like a usb port - Something that can be used to show pics or play music or vids on an external usb device.
