    Here are some things that would make :apple: ios 5 the best.
    The 1st thing is Exposé to get to all my open apps not that boring double tap home button app switching (also if there could be multitouch gestures would be good because sometime I feel like I am going to sink the home button on my iPhone).

    The 2nd thing would be better voice controls I would like it to tell me time or date (when I am working in the garden I have my headphone with mic. and control and I don't want to pull out my iPhone and get dirt all over it to check time, all I want to do is to hold the control and ask for time or date)Don't forget to make the voice control louder.

    The 3rd thing would be wifi or 3g sync (at least for small MB apps and music and photos). The bigger MB things can be don at the computer.

    The 4th thing would be, more things on my lock screen, like news,weather and email etc. and when ever I want to see more of what I what to see that is on my lock screen I will just unlock the phone.

    The 5th thing would be a new design to the iPod app (music app on iPod touch) I been looking at the same thing for years and would like something new to make me happier when hear my music or podcast.

    The last thing is something the everybody wants is, better push notifications. Whenever I am playing a game I don't like it when it stop the game when someone calls or text me, then when I get back to the game I mess up. ( I would like it to tell me when someone is calling or texting on the top of the screen and tap on it to answer or reply).
    Please tell me if I messed something and tell what you think.
    Thank you,

    Number two and six are going to be improved in iOS 5 IMO.

    I want the 4 and 5 finger touch to close apps, open app switch and slide between apps.

    And widgets could be cool...maybe just for the lock screen.

    I'd like to see 2,4, and 6 happen. (6 is pretty obvious. Apple won't release another iPhone with the crappy notification system they already have)

    Voice control already tells you what time it is. Just say "what time is it?".

    1) Better notification
    2) Dictation style voice command similar to Android ("sent text to John, Where are you?")
    3) Live icon (weather icon showing actual weather, etc)
    4) Lockscreen info

    Thats my list. Nothing superfluous, just practical updates

    That's too bad. I suppose they'll NE able to keep the factory open off the sales of the millions of people who are ok with the iPhone.

    Literally EVERYTHING you just mentioned can already be achieved by jailbreaking. I say give it a shot. I haven't looked back.

    So what will be your next phone because it won't be an iPhone. I personally, don't want any of them.

    You can change the volume of Voice Control independently of the main volume. Just use the volume buttons whilst Voice Control is active :)

    or you could jailbreak instead of waiting for apple to hear your wants

    It won't be Symbian now. And of course not Windows Phone.

    I would like Android if it were real Java.

    So it will probably be QNX, if the price is right.

    The better notifications needs to happen and fast. It's the worst part of iOS right now by far.

    - More info on the lockscreen
    - Better notification system
    - Many annoying bug fixes
    - Scrolling text in the ipod app is a must.

    this will not happen through Apple at least while Steve is around. And why I keep Jailbreaking. Sorry no iPhone for you then.

    In my opinion iOS4 is currently the best. These features you have suggested is just going to make the next iOS a lot better :)

    I want a new status bar, like in Mac OS X, and have it perform similar to SBsettings, with quick access to common things like WiFi, turn on/off/reboot.
    Just like Mac OS X.

    I'd be disappointed if they didnt do this in iOS 5.
