    the OPTION to "hey siri" without being plugged in. Give me a warning box about battery life if need be, but I REALLY want to be able to just pull out my iphone and "hey siri".

    Hardware chip needed (like the M chip). It will be on the 6S.

    What is everyone's huge problem with the music app? I like it.

    Parts of it are in the list - but I'd like to be able to see and manage what is in OTHER with ability to delete what is doable without harm or ?

    Like to be able to do selective restores - like I want to only restore game levels but not the rest of the stuff.

    My biggest wishlist item would be iOS "Modes". When you setup iOS on your device for the first time it should prompt you for "regular user" or "advanced user" and install options accordingly.

    This will keep the geeks happy with all the options they want in advanced mode but keep grandparents safe and less confused with less options in normal mode.

    Furthermore, I'd like to see more optimizations. Like how Windows Vista sucked and Windows 7 was great.

    Office mode
    Outdoor mode
    Meeting mode

    Different volumes, ringers, buzzers, etc for each mode.
    "Siri, enable Office mode."

    2) Allow texts from VIPS to come thru during Do Not Disturb, like phone calls. Or an option slider to allow them.

    3) Allow better granularity for DND. Weekday/weekend, etc.

    The iPhone 4s will be four years old by then, time for a new phone I think.

    More granular options for Do Not Disturb. It allows calls from my favourites, but what about texts and messages from them? Something like a checklist which I can toggle on and off (would help for 3rd party chat apps, mostly).

    Document picker for Mail, so I can least attack files from dropbox and icloud drive.

    I would like the placement of the edit button in the photos gallery app to be revised. Right now, it is in a very unwieldy top right corner (and the 3 dots which brings up the photo-editing extensions then switches to the top left corner), which can make it cumbersome on larger phones. Either standardise the button placement, and / or move it to the bottom. Perhaps remove the trash icon and replace it with a swipe up to delete action? While we are at it, maybe swipe down to share or something?

    More stability for airplay mirroring. My iPad mirrors okay, but my macbook air barely chugs along before crashing the connection over peer-to-peer? :(

    All I want is the removal of UI lag on the at the moment ONE YEAR OLD iPads. Removal of the much more abundant UI artifacts and glitches on iPad as well.

    Finally, general bugs fixed across the board, iPhone and iPad. New and old.

    GPS, time scheduled, wifi setting based profiles. Would like my phone to think for itself and go to a preset configuration based on one of the above.

    Sms/iMessage auto reply

    Hate to say it, but it's android features that I wish we had.

    Multiple Users

    I want to have multiple users like on OS X, so I can have one user set up with my e-mail, address book, etc, and another user set up with games for my kids that doesn't have access to my e-mail etc.

    It's lacking when compared to their iTunes application. No up next. Not so great/efficient album view in landscape. And it could use smarter playlists.

    1. Speed.
    2. Bug fixes.
    3. More space in the music player. Pre-iOS7 was perfect. Who on Earth thought 6 different controls in the space of 2 cm was sensible with a finger controlled device?
    4. Make the Settings app overviews more logical. Right now it is a mess to find what you need, unless you go in there daily.
    5. Put Siri back to where she was pre-iOS8. I dont need useless catchy remarks and i want proper feedback back as it was. Also, make her more accurate as she was before, as she oftent fails after iOS8 was released, and I am even on iOS7.
    6. Add data to Maps. It is severely lacking and has multiple errors which still arent being fixed despite feedback, compared to Google Maps.
    7. Let me delete stock apps.
    8. Let me set default apps.
    9. Stop random song skipping in the Music app. Make it better at remembering which song I was listening to before (RAM issue?).
    10. Modes that are location or time sensitive, ie. "Work" that turns off sound between 8-16, "Home" that turns on BT when I reach my home adress.
    11. Add a software NFC chip and Touch ID to my 4S. :p

    #21 is so much better. Queue, crossfade, beautiful design, etc.

    1. Would be nice to have the option for a Dark system theme alongside the existing. :cool:

    2. No introduction to new software technology updates midway thru the life-cycle of iOS9 (ie iWatch on iOS8) , leaving valuable time to fix all the bugs before moving onto iOSX and introducing future tech.

    3. Better functional stock music player.

    Some semblance of text editing. Right now it's a pain to edit text written in imessage or and of the default apps. How about putting in some arrow keys on the virtual keyboard so you can move your cursor around and edit without needing to resort to simply re-typing everything out again as you can't simply back up and change or edit some letters.

    There is a jailbreak hack for it. I use "hey Siri" multiple times a day. If only it could actually understand. That is what needs to happen in ios 9.

    Hey Siri needs to be tied to a certain voice.... otherwise 10 phones will all go into siri mode.

    1. Custom icon packs bought through the AppStore and enabled via settings.
    2. True multi-tasking with functioning side-by-side windows IE as seen with Quasar jailbreak app (iPad's only)
    3. Customizable control centre toggles IE as seen with CCsettings jailbreak app
    4. Fixed icon placement IE as seen with Gridlock jailbreak app
    5. Single key press to clear notification centre notifications IE as seen with Always clear jailbreak app
    6. Custom font packs bought through the AppStore and enabled via settings IE as seen with BytaFont jailbreak app
    7. Ability to either uninstall unused system apps or at least hide icons of unused system apps.
    8. Push integration with Gmail - Although this feature was disabled from Google's side
    9. FLAC support
    10. File transfer via bluetooth, of all file types and across platform
    11. Equalizer built into music app similar to the one built into iTunes
    12. Screen color and temp calibration tool IE as seen with Color Profiles jailbreak app
    13. As already suggested in an earlier post, black mode - so white/blue text on a black background vs current white/blue on white background.

    That's all that comes to mind right now.

    The majority of the above is already available to jailbreakers.

    As a huge exponent of jailbreaking and the jailbreak community, the above list underpins the immense value (hacking and pirating aside) jailbreaking brings to the iOS experience!!
