Top 5:
  1. Camera: manual controls
  2. Photos: Shared iCloud Photo Library
  3. Phone: STIR/SHAKEN
  4. Settings: delete individual app data without having to reinstall the app (deleting built-in app does not clear data)
  5. Settings: allow third party app to become the default app

  • Homebar disable
  • Control center bar disable
What I want is the ability to maintain where home bar is, disabled or not. I’ve had it enough switching out of an intense game session just because my swipe is too close to the bottom in landscape mode. Control Center bar is ok. This does not bother me much.
Spotlight disable
Mind asking why?
Shutdown spinner
This? Really? Jut wait a minute...
  • Music app alerts like ringer ui
  • Battery alerts like ringer ui
I have no idea what these stuff mean.
  • Rar file management
  • Mkv file management
These are reserved for macOS and PC. Most people don’t even care the video format of videos taken by their iPhone. They just share it anyway.
Setting for reset a app (clean cache etc.) without logout
While this is good, it is very difficult to generalise, unless developer follows a very clear unambiguous guideline.
With that being said, I want a feature to just delete website data without clearing history. All desktop browsers can do this. Why iOS can’t?
Speedtest function in settings app
Uh, just use Speedtest app, that’s it. I don’t need to keep track of my network speed when the website just load as slow as if I am using EDGE anyway.
Always listen siri (just say „siri“ anywhere in a sentence to activate siri)
We are pretty close to this one right? And I believe “hey Siri” is already a thing from iPhone 6s.
No itunes store app like on macos
Where do we old folks buy the music then? Forcing everyone to go for Apple Music or no music at all? Not gonna like it.
Automatic login password
This depends a lot on how website design their login page. Apple cannot cover all of them.

@OP, don't you think you're being greedy? :)

Maybe shorten it down to 5 things and then we're talking?

If you really want all these small changes, you could just jailbreak and have them. I had 70% of iOS 13 (Xbox controller, dark mode, volume etc) for months on iOS 12, plus some of the things you listed.

I would like to hear what others wish for ios 14. no need to discuss any of my suggestions :p
But it is only natural to nitpick every single feature you have listed and give personal opinions. /s:cool::p
With that being said, I think it is still pretty early to discuss about iOS 14 feature list when iOS 13 is still in beta 1 period.

There won’t be many groundbreaking changes. I’m into betas since ios 4, the new features and ui changes will see some refinements of course but this is our ios 13.

Import music from Files to Music. I don’t get all my music from the iTunes Store and Apple Music, so I’d like to download an album in Safari and import it from there.
I doubt it given apple’s serious push towards Apple Music and now they demote iTunes Store when you make a fresh install of iOS 13. It feels like they want to ditch iTunes Store within a few weeks or so, even though they may not.

Better mouse support including right click menu and Magic Trackpad gesture support, ability to set default apps.

I would hope we could see this during iOS 13, not waiting until iOS 14, given that we already have some level of mouse support already, including some game mouses with tons of buttons.
