**Editor’s Note: Click here for our most recent list of hottest selling smartphones to see how Apple’s iPhone fared against the competition.**

Channel partners, other business users and general consumers who consider themselves “iPhone-philes” are eagerly anticipating Apple’s iPhone 6 announcement on Tuesday.

As usual, the Silicon Valley giant is being pretty tight-lipped about the new device, not even confirming the most widely expected news that there will indeed be two of the iconic devices launching next week – a 4.7-inch version and a 5.5-inch version of the handset.

FinancesOnline created an infographic based on customer surveys and comparing specifications of previous iPhone models. Included are results from smartphone users about what new features they would like to see on the iPhone 6, as well as what improvements they would enjoy.

The survey found that among potential new features:

  • 45.5 percent of those surveyed want the rumored sapphire screen;
  • 19.2 percent want an infrared camera;
  • 10.7 percent want new health and fitness tools;
  • 9.5 percent want 3-D images; and
  • 7.7 percent want new control tools for home appliances.

As for improvements, a larger screen wasn’t the most desired option. They wanted:

  • Better battery life (37.7 percent)
  • Bigger screen (19.2 percent)
  • Better camera (11 percent)
  • Better phone reception (11 percent)
  • More memory (10 percent)

The research determined that the iPhone 4 (2010 model) had the most innovations (12), followed by the 4S (2011) with nine.
