Your next iPhone!

By Mark Bazer

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | "Apple Inc. plans to begin production of a refreshed iPhone ... in the second quarter of the year, according to people familiar with the device's production, teeing up a possible summer launch for the next version of its flagship device." -- The Wall Street Journal

The iPhone has come a long way since it first came on the market in 2007. It's difficult to remember now, but the original iPhone was hardly the robust smartphone it is today. In fact, the first-generation model only allowed users to make basic phone calls -- and only to tell people that they had an iPhone.

It wasn't until the third-generation iPhone that the late Apple founder Steve Jobs could confidently announce, "Finally, we have given to the world a device that allows you to completely shut out your surroundings." With each new iPhone comes, of course, improvements. And with each new announcement of a new iPhone comes rumors of what those improvements will be.

While most of those rumors don't turn out to be true, we have the inside scoop that the next-model iPhone will indeed include the following exciting features.

  • Senses whether fingertips belong to a 2-year-old -- and immediately turns off ability to make outgoing phone calls.

  • Sobs loudly, uncontrollably for one month if stolen.

  • Acknowledges that you don't care what the time is in Cupertino.

  • Includes more megapixels than you can conceive of. Go ahead: How many megapixels can you conceive of? ... OK, that's pretty good. The new iPhone will have one more than that.

  • Doesn't allow Fandango to text you when "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" tickets go on sale.

  • Includes never-before-released footage of Steve Jobs talking trash about Angry Birds.

  • Arrives preloaded with all photos that will ever exist of Kim Kardashian.

  • Enables Suri to communicate with your Segway.

  • Replaces Maps app with vintage gas-station road map of Indiana.

  • Syncs iPhone's calendar with any wall calendar (except Chippendales).

  • Lets you tap iPhone on people's heads to convey information without actually talking.

  • Syncs all your sinks.

  • Allows you to make purchases by simply winking knowingly at device.

  • Blocks out Facebook friends' posts that would engender self-hatr

  • Quietly snickers whenever you pass somebody with a BlackBerry.

  • Runs on 9-volt battery.

  • Texts you with rumors about the next iPhone.
