These days, expectations of the next iPhone are growing larger. All concepts are about edge-to-edge display with a digital home button. I wondered, what the best possible way to use the bigger screen is.

Studying the recent acquisitions by Apple, I became suspicious. Face and emotion recognition, connecting the real world with digital content, big data and machine learning. Any of them separately would create a better iOS, but what if they were merged into one big something? Let say, into Siri? If the rumors are true, more powerful hardware is on the way, which supports augmented reality (AR) smoothly in 4K resolution.

My bet for Apple’s next big hit,
is a new Siri with augmented reality support. 
Siri would now not only listen you, but would see the world. It would recognize objects,
know where you are, what your activity is and what you probably need in that moment. 
Siri is becoming a more clever conversational partner, so it can understand
contextual questions easily. 
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get health data about yourself
and your loved ones so easily?
In the case of an edge-to-edge screen, the Home screen would also need some change. The reachability of the top icons is hard even on an iPhone 7. It’s not a good idea to push them up even more. However, aligning them to the bottom would be a pretty good move. 

The augmented reality features would not only be accessible through Siri, but in all apps - if they have AR widget. For example, Facebook got a Friends Near Me
and a Live AR widget
