I agree about the live icons, it was the only major reason I ever jailbroke my iPhone 4 and if someone hadn't updated my 4S to iOS 6, it would have live icons too right now.

So yea, updated icons would be nice period and live icons for the weather and the clock would be an awesome change. A few color schemes to pick from wouldn't kill anybody either I don't think...

Allow multiple users to upload to a shared photo stream! I think this is a feature that would be a fantastic addition (and I'm surprised that it doesn't allow for this already).

I predict though, Wifi+Cell will make a re-appearance, some Maps improvements. Other than that, no idea!

Siri on ipad 3, with more languages?

Maybe the ability to add or change themes of the phone would be sweet

Forget Maps... How about fixing:

1) Mail bugs: Exchange Server connectivity, swoosh before SMTP, etc.
2) Battery life issues.

That is all, 2 things, and I'd be super stoked.
That would make these 2 functions work properly as they did in iOS5

I'm not asking for much...

They took it away in iOS 6.0 but it will probably come back in iOS 6.1.

From a developer perspective, there are a few bugs. For a web developer, there is a bug for "homescreen" web apps in which they can only request a GPS location a single time before the GPS API completely fails - silently!

Pretty huge problem for me and I'm sure others.

I hope they put in a serious effort in fixing the M$ issues in iOS 6 and wait till they can legitimately call it iOS 6.5... I think the maps issue may take a while to fix, though. They need to fix the wifi issues and purple hue of the camera as well. They also need to fix the M$ like quality control issues on the iPhone handset. I have an iPhone 4 (non S) and am leaning away from getting an iPhone 5 till these issuer are corrected...

I have issues. I was driving my friend home, he put his address in. He lives in a city that is not small, and it kept wanting me to drive past his house and go across a toll bridge. Even when we were right beside the street to his house, it wanted me to drive past the street and go on the toll bridge. I don't get it, Google never had this problem.

Shared reminders and shared calendars are already a feature of iCloud. You do it from the Calendar and Reminders apps in Mountain Lion and they become shared calendars or shared reminders on everyone else's computers and devices. Works well.

Not sure if you can do it without the new Mountain Lion apps though.

I would love apps with live icons to look like the ones on top row here, in a right to left sliding manner. On the iPhone 5 of course. Then you would have a dedicated space on top of the first home screen for apps with this functionality.

I really don't now what info would be there, but if implemented I think it should be done this way.

Location based reminders on iPad3 would be kinda nice. They -did- announce them after all.

I feel like Apple is slowly adding these features but just sticking them in there instead of redesigning the OS with new these new features in mind.

Like someone mentioned a way to turn off passbook and newsstand. I could see Apple just adding another toggle in general or something for this. The settings are a clusterf already IMO.
