Apple is living in a new world in 2013. Some loyalists have crossed the border to Android running atop Samsung's Galaxy S III. Others have moved to a similarly functional OS via the HTC Windows Phone 8X. Yet, some stay loyal to Apple and their products. But no matter your opinion of Apple or their products, the exorbitant influx of doubt is a rising tide.

So, how long can fruits float when forgotten at sea?

Some remain complacent and rest on their deep faith in everything Apple. "They'll make the next one better." "I don't need NFC." "Android is too complicated." "iPhone's are the best phones because they were first." Lately, Apple has multiplied attention, subtracted loyalists, added minor features to their aging hardware and software, and divided the amount of viable alternatives to iOS down to one.

That alternative is Android.

Google's Android is a chameleon, ever-changing and evolving to perpetuate functions we might not know we need, and incorporating them into everything iOS is not. And as compared to iOS, Android's main advantage is in variety. Any hardware manufacturer can differentiate the baseline Android software into their own by adding true features atop different hardware and software fronts.

Yet, like a bad dream, Apple isn't responding. I keep waking to the same products and mentality. The same icon grid. The same home button. The same colors. And I want to be surprised and happy with what Apple has done with the mobile computing industry, but I can't be.

In 2013, I will not settle or sympathize for an outdated, overstated, underdeveloped, and outrageous marketing tactic thrown at me. Enough is enough.

In order for Apple to regain my trust as an unbiased fan of all things in the mobile realm, here are three things Apple can do as a unit to impress me.

 

Update iOS and change the experience

And make it magical.

It's not terribly understated when someone looks at an iPhone or iPad and thinks "wow, this is so easy to use and navigate." The problem with this thought-process is we are no longer in 2007. The year Apple announced the first iPhone running iOS 1.0, the world was turned upside-down. Nearly 6.5-years later and iOS remains largely unchanged. Is it okay that Apple has only added "features" when it deemed necessary?

I'm sorry, but it's not. I have very little faith left in iOS and it's upsetting. Look no further than multitasking which seems almost second nature to any other operating system. Compare that experience to Android's implementation of true multitasking, or even Windows Phone 8's version and it's clear Apple still has some work to do.

A few things are going to have to happen to iOS for me to acknowledge it's viability as an alternative in the mobile operating system penthouse.

First, shortcuts on the lockscreen which allow easy access to any application would be a welcomed edition. There are many times when you need to get in and out of your iPhone without unlocking it and launching the app. Give us the option to get to it from the lockscreen, please.

Secondly, iOS needs something to let us utilize the iPad to its full potential. Look no further than Samsung's multi-window feature on the Galaxy Note II. I am thoroughly unimpressed by iOS on an iPad due to the wasted space, and underdeveloped usability of those extra 5.7-inches.

I'd also like to see a more intrusive Siri that helps me like its competitor, Google Now. Her uselessness is becoming an apparent gimmick in comparison. Siri's adversary has a list of features that is unparalleled. I'd like to see Siri do the following: email and event reminders, news, public alerts, traffic updates via location, and local reviews.

Another feature Apple can add to iOS that will largely influence my previous recommendation is an update to the homescreen. It's no secret that the homescreen is iOS's greatest strength and weakness. It's uninhibited simplicity is iconic…and extremely boring. Take your pick from this list of features that can be added in one context or another to the homescreen: tiles, widgets, images atop the wallpaper, icon-resizing, home screen carousel, and jailbreak swipe gestures.

 

Get out of your comfort zone and update the hardware once and for all

Apple products are renowned for Jonathan Ive's designs. It's no stretch of the imagination to say that Ive's role with Apple is a lifeline. But my million dollar question is: can he change the designs of his products without a large refresh of iOS?

I don't think so.

For instance, the home button serves a vital role in how iOS is navigated on any Apple device. Without it, there would be no way to get back to that iconic homescreen. The iPhone faces the most hurdles in adapting to any significant hardware change. Even the speaker grills, volume and hold buttons, and headphone jack are placed in a way that does not negate the manufacturing of the device. And I'm not going to tell them to put those antennas too close to each other; that could cause reception issues.

One thing Apple should have added with the launch of the iPhone 5 was NFC. Near field communication is a set of standards which allow devices to establish radio communication to each other. When connected, devices can share pictures and videos.

However, the main reason we need the next iPhone to have NFC on-board is to get an industry standard in motion. Contactless payment systems are here to stay. With a simple tap of your phone at the grocery store, you can transmit credit or debit card information directly from your account to the store, like you would with traditional plastic. Apple needs to adopt NFC to standardize the process and set guidelines for the mobile industry. Due to Apple's widely accepted standards of use, they're the only hope in moving our future towards truly contactless payments into a reality.

Another needed addition is durability. The past few months I've touched on HTC, Samsung, and Sony's approach to hardware durability in the face of adversity. But it wouldn't be a party without Apple. Let's see dust and waterproofing IP55 and IP57 labels on the next iPhone. Rubber edges to deter damage in a freefall. Glossy plastic to hide scuffs and aging. Less aluminum. Less glass. I guess I'm really asking for a completely different looking iPhone.

 

Apple needs to calm down and face reality

If in 2007 you had told me that there was going to be a phone that had a 3.5-inch screen, I would have laughed at you. "There's no way I need that." "It's too big to carry around." "It doesn't sound like it will catch on with consumers."

And here we are. Just a few short years later and the iPhone is an icon in the mobile industry. It's the epitome of a dream brought to reality by a man with a vision. An unenforced, unconscionable dream that paid no mind to doubters and naysayers encountered over the 25-years in Steve Jobs' life.

We believed in the product a few years ago. It was revolutionary. Even Magical.

Was revolutionary.

Where does this leave the Apple of today? Well, competition has left them in a rut. No, they're not going under. Investors will continue to back whatever device they concoct. They'll adhere to Apple's beliefs that their products are truly "magical." For lack of a better word, Apple is safe for the indefinite future of computing.

But there's a problem in the mentality of what Apple has pitched to consumers. It is borderline irresponsible to let your followers belittle and deface competing innovations if it is not stamped with the famed "partially bitten fruit" around the backside.

Innovation is a highway. You either follow the traffic and take your exit towards one path, or you keep going. Onwards and upwards, as they say. On the contrary, I believe many Apple loyalists do not see Apple products as competition to the likes of the HTC One's and Samsung Galaxy S IV's of the future.

Why?

Because you can't change true Apple loyalists. Believing in a company and dedicating your life to it is one thing if you're Steve Jobs, but writing-off NFC, on-screen keys, gestures, or whatever else that wasn't "innovated" by the Cupertino company is despicable. In 2013, I'd like to see Apple acknowledge competition as just as innovative as what they devise in their next wave of products. It's a stretch, but if this happens, maybe Apple's followers will smell what BlackBerry, Google, and Microsoft are brewin'.

Then again, it's never easy arguing with a teenage mentality.

That's all, folks. What do you think Apple needs to do in 2013 to stay relevant? Do you think their time is up? What features would be truly magical in the next iPhone or iPad? Let me know what you believe in the comments below.

Vikas Nanda Innovate instead of reinventing
Steve Swiger
Steve Swiger Apple needs to emulate android in the sense that they need to open up their home pages more. Add more widgets, add the ability for the user to customize more. Add the ability to play any music and other medias. Don't make the user use I-tunes. That has always been my biggest complaint with Apple, the proprietary nature of their software.

Jeff Kennedy I dont hate apple, but I do love my note 2, the reasons I don't buy apple start with, no removable battery, no expandable memory, screen too small, stuck up attitude (ex. if you don't like it, return it(iPhone 4)), and stuck with iTunes.
Timothy Rosell
Timothy Rosell Screw Apple
Gareth Ridout
Gareth Ridout Great article. Those who know me may be surprised to read that I am seriously considering a permanent move away from iPhone to Android (my temporary dalliance with Windows Phone is coming to an end). My reasoning is Apple's failure to respond to customer needs...and for many long time iPhone users that is the option of a larger, "phablet" version of the iPhone. I even appealed directly to Tim Cooke via email for a larger Galaxy IIIS sized or Galaxy Note2 sized option for users. Only time will tell if Apple responds to customer demand for a larger iPhone.
Chad Dinkins
Chad Dinkins Stop making the same phone every year.
Jorge Lopez
Jorge Lopez Maybe... If they come up with an Android device
Jerimiah Reece
Jerimiah Reece They can go out of business. That might garner my support. Or how about they stop using Chinese sweat shops to make their stuff?
Roy Groh

James Carew
James Carew They need to tear down the wall, make stuff configurable, make battery accessible, make memory available to supplement, enlarge the screen, include a wacom stylus and killer software, and make multiple apps viewable on the screen at once. In short, out do the Galaxy Note II. Maybe running Android would help too. :-)

Matt Shipley
Matt Shipley Fragile? Have you seen the drop tests between the s3 and iPhone 5?
Joel Gomez
Joel Gomez Not only taller but wider screen please. Removable battery. Widgets. Better multitasking. No aluminum less glass so no case is needed bec phone is so fragile which laughable. Make siri understand and do a lot more usable features like reading emails or text while driving. File system so i can attach any file in the email. Enable adobe flash. Too minimal design is impractical. Stop suing for rectangles and icons.
Matt Shipley
Matt Shipley How is apple expensive? iPhone-$200. Galaxy s3-$200 note2-200 or even 250.
Paul Shotton
Paul Shotton apple needs to drop it's price on everything...way too expensive ,compaired to other brands.

Skylor Mitchell
Skylor Mitchell Hey need to stop trying to patient anything and everything that deals with mobile technology, and to stop trying to sue everyone over simple and stupid things.
Nick Kathrein
Nick Kathrein I think they need to make a movie staring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. Maybe a movie about two 40-something's who land an internship at Apple to get a full-time job. I think that would work for me. :)
Rick Hornett
Rick Hornett Better yet, just go away.
Florens Richter
Florens Richter Re-invent their devices
Steven Quacoo- Dorby
Steven Quacoo- Dorby I really don't think there is anything touching what they created in a sense that android copied and continues to catch up with iOS, but it would be nice to see something new on either platform
Kevin Peters
Kevin Peters Their not going to do anything! They're too busy chasing copywrite infringements to make their money. Apple is done! Samsung and HTC are going to finish them off in the next 2 years.

Mathew Poynter
Mathew Poynter First off, Apple needs to drop ALL litigation against Samsung. Secondly they need to completely overhaul iOS, its been largely unchanged since 2007. Sure iOS has great app support but it lacks some of the features that Android now offers.
Sheeraz Sarwar
Sheeraz Sarwar Only one thing which can save apple is...make a 5"inch iphone and another one keep the same as of the size of iphone 5...just only this thing can save apple coz majority of the people still believes in apple product build quality in which apple is boss of samsung... Also increase the no. Of f4ee apps from market
Timothy Phillips
Timothy Phillips More options to unlock the device, FIX MAPS, and wireless charging would be REALLY nice
Elvis Abor
Elvis Abor Apple should disappear, entirely. It's a shame! And they should leave the fact of producing the S line of their iPhones like the 3Gs, 4S. If they're going to release the iPhone 5S with the same basic and shitty stuff, then for me Apple's gone. Although almost 4 years on Android I still love it. I'm not in love with iOs but for their survival... they should innovate something with iOs 7 and leave the iPhone 5S project (even if the same with iPhone 5, lol)
Jesse Huertas
Jesse Huertas Stop being trolls and stop making the same phone since 2007
Lawrence Lepes
Lawrence Lepes Apple has to accept the fact that they are no longer the top dog. The Iphones are simply yesterday's big things. Samsung makes the best phones on the market. One thing Apple needs to do is stop sueing every time a company gives them competition in the cell phone business. Basically, the company of Apple is made up of a bunch of cry babies, and cowards!
Antonio Horn
Antonio Horn Will doyle. All that is in android phones already. Apple needs to change the os. It's plain outdated. I've owned the og iphone, 3g and 3gs. Went to evo, , siii now note 2. I can safely say ill never go back To boring os and lack of customization. Not to mention the itunes non sense.
Brandon Mims
Brandon Mims Any big changes Apple could do with their software would take them into Android, BlackBerry, Web os territory and good luck to Apple fighting that battle with their patents.

Robert Miller
Robert Miller Samsung is close to taking the crown because they release more than one phone a year like apple. I know apple has the iPads but who wants to pay $700 for something when they can get a phone that can do just about the same. The galaxy note 2 does everything that the iPad does and then some because of android.

Matt Cain They need to stop putting out the same basic thing. Stop adding one new feature and acting like you've revolutionized cell phones. Yes, Apple does make good products, but good is all they will ever be until they stop the games and make the phone I believe they can make that would blow every other phone out of the water. Samsung is coming to take your crown, Apple. What will you do about it?
Jon Ashley
