    The FM Radio would be a nice touch I think because you can listen to it the entire day and not use data.

    Well, it's a wish list, so here are some far-fetched dreams:

    1. New icons
    2. Ability to navigate/play/pause music with volume buttons
    3. Dark/Light theme toggle
    4. Custom Control Center toggles with API for developers
    5. Dynamic Wallpaper section in Appstore with SDK support for developers
    I know I won't get them, but I can't help myself.

    Probably realistically an iOS 8 wishlist at this point but anyway. Mine are mostly to do with text input:

    1. Tap on a word that's not recognised (red underline) and add to user dictionary
    2. Edit user dictionary (it's learned some weird misspellings and SHOUTED WORDS that I must have used a few times and not corrected)
    3. Make dictation icon by the keyboard space bar respond to only long hold, not single tap
    4. Make language-switching globe icon on keyboard have a consistent position on all keyboards and also respond only to long hold
    5. Additional Siri voices in different styles (not just one male and female per language)

    Also, FM is just more reliable. There has always been breaks, when I'm outside listening TuneIn...
    Biggest need is eye candy?
    How come?

    Bigger keyboard, meaning in iphone?
    iPad's keyboard in landscape is pretty nice now and with iphone there's almost nothing left outside the keyboard? Wider screen has been the answer for all the rest, so Apple can't choose that.

    Week mode for calendar would be great!

    Because it sets the tone for the entire user experience. Also, at least for me, it's not just that I don't like some of the icons, it's that I think some of them are so garish, so amateurish, that they annoy me every time I see them. Annoyance isn't the emotion I want to feel when I use my iPhone.

    EDIT: In fairness, I should say that I do actually like some of the new icons. I think Mail and Weather are quite nice.

    I think it's a bit late for an iOS 7 wishlist, no?

    Well, it's not too late to learn what others would like to have or improved. Sometimes something new even comes with dot-updates...

    To me that's overrating visuality over functionality.
    But I guess lot of people buy iPhone just because of its looks...

    1.
    More languages for Siri. :) (Dutch, in my case)

    2.
    FM-radio.

    3.
    The ability to (temporarily) delete official Apple apps when not needed, and to put Newsstand in a folder.

    4.
    Copy & paste function for Calendar.

    5.
    Old YouTube app back.

    You can put Newsstand in a folder with iOS 7.

    And old YouTube app is never coming back.

    Finally, much better than just leaving Newsstand somewhere on the homescreen.
    I know original YT will never come back, just wishing it would. :)

    1. More calendar functionality. Bring back the old month view (month split with agenda).

    2. Quick Reply

    3. Better notification center. Customizable. Show calendar appointments like iOS 6 (show up in notification center a day before the appointment).

    4. Customizable control center

    5. More customizable home screen (let us place icons where we want, don't force us to lock to the grid).

    This may not perfectly fit with a ios7 wish list but I'd like the option for the iOS to send me a some type of ping tone whenever I receive an email or message as I wear my headphones.

    My phone is always on vibrate and oftens sits beside me at my workstation as I listen to podcasts or music or calling someone when coding. If I rcv a call, email or text I may not notice the two pulse vibrate notification.

    Maybe this feature already exists and I just don't have my phone configured properly.

    I'm happy enough with what I've seen in the betas. IOS 7 is certainly a jailbreak killer as far as I'm concerned as most of the tweaks I jailbroke for are now incorporated.

    Turn your phone off of vibrate? Then, you will get notified via sound through your headphones.

    I really want two new things for future iOS versions.
    1) Quick Reply - really believe that people will be blown away by how much that simple feature truly changes the way you use the phone. A much smoother experience.
    2) More Powerful Notification Center - ability to swipe and dismiss individual notifications so that the notification is marked as read and therefore removing badges from app icons; ability to delete or reply to an email with a right to left swipe on the notification to bring up options like in the mail app; replace missed tab with something more useful like Facebook and twitter quick post; consolidate the today tab to better use the space. No need to show hourly view on calendar when a list of upcoming appointments would be more efficient. That way you could see the tomorrow section without scrolling.

    Bonus stuff: use the space formerly occupied by spotlight; intrigued by the idea of an always on Siri like the "ok, google now" concept; would also love a multitasking gesture to further reduce the wear and use of the home button.

    Hopefully, we can see some of this, but quick reply is easily my number one most wanted feature. I'd take that before anything else. Good luck Apple.
