An I Phone that automatically steers you around other people that do not feel the need to stare at their phone whilst waking around, with of course an attitude adjuster so when you do bump into someone you acknowledge that it was your stupid fault, and say "sorry I am a moron"!!

talking of iPhones....i'm dithering over whether or not to upgrade....however i suspect Apple will send me some kind of bug (if and when i do update the software) which will completely slow down my phone and hence i'll be left with no choice but to upgrade!

Really???
I have 2 iPhones here, a 6 and a 7+. The 6 is updated to iOS11 and the 7+ is still on 10.3.3. Both work just as they did before, if anything the 6 seems slightly more sprightly. Matter of getting used to some of the changes, particularly the control centre but other than that no issues, no worse battery life.

As a tip, or three. Before updating do a full backup of your phone in iTunes. Update then do a full hard wipe everything reset. Restore from your iTunes backup.

Get rid of all the junk, unwanted old app data. Just because you might have deleted a whole bunch of pictures they might still be there if you send any to others using WhatsApp, LINE etc. You need to access their own memory areas to delete them.

Other than a new battery my 6 has been trouble free and works as well if not better today than it did when new.

err that sounds way too technical for me.....when it comes to anything to do with IT,
i'm a thicko. I have the SE...i did have the 6 but found it too big since it wouldn't fit in my back trouser pocket (it actually fell in the toilet and hence went kaputt!)
