I'd like to see the following:
-Deeper app linking so apps can share stuff to one another much easier
-Default apps
-FIX THE DAMN THIRD PARTY KEYBOARDS!!!!!!!!!!
-Give widgets on home screens if we want
-Allow us to put homescreen icons anywhere we want to put them
-Dark mode
-Support for using PS or Xbox controllers over an OTG cable
-Extreme battery saver mode
-Customisable control center
-Support mice/trackpads (More so for the iPad Pro than anything else)

Make spotlight more "global". For example, when typing a movie title—spotlight should shows IMDB link,rating, etc. At the moment, only movies you already opened before from the app—indexed on spotlight. other than that, location, restaurant, places, etc would make it better.

Yes! Improve Proactive. Let developers REALLY play with it. Also allow developers to use Siri. Give em more apis.

Classic example of "If I don't have a issue,no one does " mentality"
classic example of what i just said

"i have an issue so this OS sucks!". "if u dont have any issue its cause ur cant notice it or ur lying or trolling or being paid by apple!"

right? right. dont tell me "but i didnt say that", u didnt (but some have!), no one needs to, its what they mean & they try to wear it proudly

Works both ways though...just because you may have an issue also doesnt mean everyone has, iOS is rubbish and Apple are deliberately breaking my older phone to make me buy a new one as we often see posted on here. A lot of the time a clean install will fix lots and lots of issues but folk seem to like moaning instead!

Expand the controller API and freedom so that any controller can be used. Nobody wants those overpriced garbage MFi controllers when they have PS and XBox controllers lying around anyway.

It already works easily and reliably on jailbroken units.

I really hope Apple is considering PiP for 6(S) Plus. And iOS devices should have the ability to run completely independent from iTunes (no iCloud Library is not a useful solution). At least a few of my big wishes from the last thread have already been added to iOS 9. So there isn't much left:

1) Extensions for Safari (Adblock!, Ghostery etc.)
2) Quick Reply Api (Whatsapp, Facebook)
3) Split Screen Multitasking
4) Touch ID based guest account (allows private browsing, blocks certain photos/videos albums and apps)
5) ability to add any file to an email
6) better Lightning/HDMI adapter encoding
7) customize Control Center
8) Dark/Night Mode (dark interface, even darker icons, maybe timer based)

9) better iPad UI (nine icons in a folder lol)
10) reduce unused space in NC, Mail etc.
11) make it possible to hide stock apps
12) USB iPad Display Mode (use it as secondary display)
13) Api for lexicon (integrated dictionary etc.)

14) 6Plus cut/paste keyboard for the iPad
15) Option to manually clear App caches for all apps

"read aloud mode" in safari or any other app that will read news articles to you.
I use this feature all the time already. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > then turn Speak Selection on. Now whenever you select some text you will get an option to have spoken too you. Its very very helpful to me and how I read all news articles as well many long post here on MacRumors.
