People tend to forget that telephones have ALWAYS been… tall and thin. Even the stereotypical candlestick phone is tall and thin, and it's not even the part you hold! And now LG wants to come out with a 5" 4:3 BRICK of a phone? No. People actually think they want this?!
My keys are typically placed in the adjacent pocket and are much smaller than my iPhone but I would love if my keys could get smaller or fewer in number. I certainly don't want them to fill up the entirety of my normal sized pockets.
*Exhale as on discovering something interesting* That's it. That's part of Apple's home automation scheme. I mean, they'll have to have one eventually, but whatever.
Your iPhone is your keys. The house unlocks (and/or security system disarms) when the iPhone/iPad you're carrying hops back on your home Wi-Fi network. Same with your car. Of course, you really wouldn't want it stolen in that case.
Guy steals your iPhone, takes your car, "Siri, take me home." "Getting directions to home." Goes to your house, cases the joint…
Of course then you'd have "Find My Car" to counter this: your stolen iPhone, in the possession of the thief, would be able to remotely shut off the car's engine. And your house would have an entry/exit log, viewable on iCloud.com.
