I sent Apple some Feedback on http://www.apple.com/feedback/ for what I want to see in iOS 7. Just thought I'd share it here as well. Apple says they read them, so I hope they use some of these ideas. "Many people I've talked to that use iPhones that used to love them, even the older people I've talked to, are getting very annoyed that a few simple features are missing from the operating system. These features have long been implemented on desktop operating systems and are now being used on other mobile OSes. If you truly want to call iOS "the most advanced mobile operating system", then some work needs to be done to it. My requests are the following: 1. Allow users to delete default apps (Newsstand, Weather, ect.) and redownload from the App Store. This will also make it easier to update these apps, as the updates can be done through the App Store instead of pushing out an iOS update. 2. Widgets in Notification Center/Home Screen. Stocks and Weather are a great start, but developers should be able to sell widgets in the App Store to make it easier for users to do the tasks they want to do. For example, when I get in my car, I turn the Bluetooth on my phone on. When I get out, I turn it off to save battery. This process takes way too long to accomplish, and if Widgets were available, I could download a bluetooth toggle widget that would allow me to swipe down the notification center and turn off bluetooth. These widgets should also be able to be used on the home screen, assuming the user has enough space on their screen for it. 3. Weather/Widgets in Lock Screen. The lock screen on iOS has so much wasted potential. It's great that as of iOS 5, you can see your notifications on it, but you should be able to install widgets similar to those in Notification Center. 4. Quick Reply for Messages. It's great that iOS has the banner notifications. What's not so great is when you get a text message and don't want to stop what you are doing and completely switch to the Messages app to reply to the message. A better system for doing this would be: User receives banner notification for text User can tap on notification and reply right there, within his/her current app User can send the message from that app, or choose to switch to the Messages app. This should also be included in the SDK so apps such as Facebook Messenger can use it. 5. Ability to place apps anywhere on the screen. On the homescreen, the user is very limited as to how apps are placed. Users should be able to place apps wherever they like on the screen. For example, if a user has three apps installed on the phone, they should be able to place those three apps wherever they please, in whatever order they please. Right now, if a user has three apps on a page, those three apps will always be in the upper left corner of the "grid" no matter what. 6 Ability to pick default apps. I understand that you guys very much like the apps that ship with the phone. But let's be honest, some people need more features than are included in some of them. Such as adding a photo to a threaded conversation in Mail. It isn't possible. Some people need that feature, so they download apps that can give them that feature. The App Store is a great place for solutions like this, but the problem is that the stock apps are always defaulted and there is no way to change them. Allowing for the user to default apps would mean that people can pick which app best suits them in a particular situation. For example, someone that prefers Sparrow over the normal Mail app could choose to have all Mail functions route to Sparrow (of course, developers would need to program this in). This way, if the user taps on an email address, they are brought into Sparrow to compose a new mail message instead of Mail. These improvements would really make iOS work better for many people and make the iPhone the best phone on the market once again. I hope that you guys at Apple consider these requests and try to add them into iOS 7. Thanks, ----------"
