Mine is that you still can't combine conversations going to multiple addresses/numbers of one contact in iMessage. So annoying.

That "Do Not Disturb" wasn't enhanced.

Potential enhancements could include:
- the ability to create a weekly schedule rather than a daily one
- location based activation
- extending the Phone exceptions to Messages and possibly third-party apps (with new APIs for identifying contacts in notifications)
- the ability to control which apps are or aren't affected by it

I too wished Apple would add combined threaded messages like what Blackberry does

Ah, that reminds me of a semi related one - I want to block all calls that aren't from numbers in my address book. Pattern matching in the blocked calls list would be good too, with a tick box to say "except from numbers in my Contacts", then I could just put a * and tick the box to block all numbers that aren't in my address book.

Also, being able to dictate what happens to them would be cool - send to voicemail, let it ring on their end, disconnect immediately, for example.

That's a feature request though, whereas I think the multiple conversations in iMessage is a design mistake on their part.

Mine was that there is no split screen multitasking on the iPad Air, but if I think about it that's more a disappointment with the iPad itself - it didn't perform very well out of the box with only 1GB RAM, I can't imagine what it'd be like running two apps at once.

Otherwise, I would've liked a system wide dark mode which intelligently switches on for when I have to Google something/text someone late at night. Would be a bit easier on the eyes.

Auto dark mode would be nice. They did it to iBooks and I use it all the time.
