    Now iOS 6 is out and people have had a few days to adjust, what small (but significant) updates do you think will come in 6.1?

    Personally the only thing I can think of thus far would be a 'clear all' button in the notification centre, as opposed to clearing each app individually. Maybe this next one is a bit ambitious for a .1 update but a 'clear all' would be much appreciated in the multi tasking bar!

    Thoughts?

    Edit: it's never going to happen but a separate iMessages app would be fantastic! Much like BBM
    Btw first post! :)

    Maps that don't get you lost? Lets start basic functionality.

    I genuinely have no issue with maps, I live within a (very) rural part of a national park in the UK where most mapping software is inadequate, but the apple maps have been fine

    The ability to share Reminder Lists. This was a function in iCloud.com before version 2.0 came out with iOS 6. The function is absent in iCloud.com 2.0. I hope it is reimplemented in iCloud.com and added to iOS.

    ----------

    I don't think fixing Apple Maps will require a new iOS release. All the work is server-side. The application functions fine, it's the data that's messed up.

    Just give me:

    Something like NCSettings.
    The mountain lion dock.
    Upload files from safari (I need this for college, thank god for Safari Upload Enabler).
    An 'x' button on the notification banner (hate to wait 'till it disappears or quickly pull down and up the NC).
    A 'select all' in mail.
    A 'tap to kill all apps' widget.
    Ability to set four app shortcuts from the lock screen.

    ...And I will be happy.

    EDIT: Set the minimum brightness as the one iBooks uses. This is perfect for night-time.

    6.1 will be bug fixing and cleaning up the UI a bit.

    iOS 6 seemed to miss out Wifi + 3G from the final release. Would be nice to see this return.

    My home broadband goes as slow as 1.5mb/s in the evening, where as 3G can manage 5!

    I'd like to see the ability to set default apps for file types and different kinds of links (addresses, calendar dates, etc.)

    Maps seems like something Apple will gradually improve by itself online rather than require constant upgrades.

    As mentioned in other threads, maybe small refinements to existing features, like:

    1) Ability to set different 'do not disturb' timings for different days of the week (eg: weekdays/weekends)

    2) Bluetooth/wifi/airplane toggles available from notifications bar, or maybe even via siri

    and so on.

    To people who say that future versions of iOS will include a better map, you guys do realize that improving map is not done with iOS update. Map downloads data directly from Apple's server, so, updating is done on the server side. Fixes are applied on the server side. Nothing is done on our phones. Only new features/functions in the application itself would require an iOS update.

    FWIW, swipe from right to left and NC banners go away immediately.

    Do Not Disturb enhancements:

    1. Ability to turn on/off from lock screen or notification center instead of opening settings.

    2. Automatically to turn on/off from clocks app (perhaps tied to alarms people set -- if you set an alarm, you should have the option to turn on DND when creating the alarm).

    3. Ability to add individual contacts to DND instead of using lists (I really only want my wife and parents to have the ability to contact me when DND is enabled).

    - Refined App Store (cleaner, simpler and user-friendly UI and elimination of the +9,000 results' app "card search")

    - Google Maps for iOS 6x

    Hopefully the ability to create our own passbook entries instead of having to use a 3rd party and 'trusting' them.

    Lots of bug fixes, huge maps upgrade, Siri controlled toggles like bluetooth/wifi, etc

    Lots of bug fixes....have to mention it twice, this is a buggy release

    Bug fixes.

    I've been having poor battery life since iOS 6.0. I just started to look into how to restore from new but I'm afraid I'll lose too much data (contacts, pics, etc, not to change topic but maybe someone can point me in the right direction).

    Some more battery life and let me delete NewsStand. :)

    Oh, and by all means spend countless months on the other 200 things I don't use or care about.


    Uh... it's free.

    Hopefully it fixes the wifi issues many are experiencing.
