    I'd imagine something like dark mode would be at the top of the list for many here.

    On the other hand, it seems (if I'm reading it all correctly) there are now options to uninstall stock apps, which is one of the things that would get brought up here fairly often, and yet it doesn't seem like there's much discussion about it all.

    That would go against Apple's philisophy of "your personal device". Besides, Apple wants everyone in the family to have their own iDevice not share one. :)

    It would be nice if they added a kid mode though.

    I had high hopes going back to Mark Gurman's pre-WWDC '15 leaks, which were very accurate, and also said multiple accounts were coming but probably delayed till iOS 10. When the education feature arrived in 9.3 I hoped it was a trial for home use in iOS 10. Call me stupid but if I'm honest I'm still holding out for it in a point release, even if it does seem against their philosophy.

    I think one device per person certainly makes sense for watch and iPhone, but iPad sits somewhere between those personal devices and macs (which have multiple accounts of course). Ah well :)

    It's not an unreasonable request to be honest with you.

    They really didn't hi light the iPad at WWDC at all... Really disappointing considering the new iPad Pros

    Dark mode. They keep making light UI elements and it gets pretty annoying that theres no way to have a darker mode for night time or whatever.

    Joint accounts for iCloud Photo Library with my wife. I don't want to have a separate library and I don't want to pay for iCloud storage twice for the same photos. Also full quality/resolution sharing with iCloud Photo Library to friends and family. The lack of these features is infuriating...

    PIP/Split View on iPhone 6s Plus - Yeah, there is not much space like an iPad but can still work portrait and landscape. Very possible and would have been nice.

    Activity or the Health app telling me what time I fell asleep last night.
    Should be easy recording my last user-input.

    Removal of the icon "grid". I thought maybe, just maybe, after 9 years I might be given the ability to place apps where I want.

    They totally teased us with the dark mode in the Apple TV. Somehow they'll make dark mode be compatible with only the iOS devices that support the true-tone display...

    • PIP would be nice for the 6+/6s+
    • Peer to peer Apple pay would be nice
    • Ability to better protect/hide certain photos, very limited feature right now
    • Music control center app dependent functionality, would like to be able to Thumbs Up in Pandora for example
    • Optimize Photos, wish it was more transparent with what it's doing for advanced users
    • Ability to choose if dictation & Siri go through handset mic or bluetooth car/headset
    • iMessage export (PDF,CSV,XML?)

    I feel that a lot of the anticipated features will be shown in September (most probably exclusive to the iPhone 7/7Plus).

    There will likely be some exclusive features, but it's not likely that it will be "a lot of" them.

    One or two exclusives. One thing to note is that this is beta 1. Apple could add dark mode and maybe other features in the next few months in beta's 3-4. One feature that stood out is the handwriting is iMessage. Could that be a potential for Apple Pencil support on iPhone, perhaps a handwriting keyboard... Maybe.
