    Some of the iPhone X latest and greatest features have been seen on a few top Android Phones for a while. Apple may have improved on how well these features are implemented, but we've seen the hardware already. It got me thinking, what features do you think we'll see Apple take from Android or the top tier Android phones for the next iPhone?

    it is really hard to say...android has so many that can be taken but in all fairness, android has taken their fair share. like the slide to unlock that cause samsung to lose a lawsuit and all appeals.

    Can't think of how Apple could copy the note without looking blatant about it. Unless they copy the redmi note and then slap a suit preventing the redmi note from being allowed to be sold in the states because of copyright infringement. They could make the iPen part of a $50 accessory case that only Apple can make and sell.

    it depends if samsung owns the rights to the pen. a similar pen was on the hp ipaqs.
