*Wiglets.

*Custom themes.

*Youtube back as a default app.

*Folders with windows rather than seeing all the apps.

*More social networking integration.

*Ability to delete default apps.

Anymore?

I agree with your last two, but also think quick reply from a notification banner should've been in there.

Wiglets.- I honestly don't see widgets making it on too ios, at least not in the way they are android. Live icons are more likely.

*Custom themes.- Not gonna happen. Maybe a little more control over the default theme, but themes aren't happening.

*Youtube back as a default app- Set YouTube as default... default what? Or do you mean installed by default? Very silly when it is a free download, if that is what you mean.

*Folders with windows rather than seeing all the apps- Huh? No idea what that means.

*More social networking integration- I know I'm in the minority here, but I so do not care about this. At least we got Flickr and Vimeo support.

*Ability to delete default apps- this would be nice, I agree.

The ability to set default browser, maps, mail app, and so forth would be nice, but I didn't think we'd ACTUALLY get that.

Apple should design iOS Betas so that the screen is scrambled, and only ADC members get special glasses that allows you to view the screen, therefore eliminating "me too" threads that duplicate the obvious.

I can't help but think this is a case of the emperors new clothes. Because apple is so secretive, they were unable to do A/B testing on the new designs.

I just hope the remove Ive from doing anymore OS work.

I could live with an ugly iphone or mac, but not an ugly OS.

Not sure what those are. ;)

*Custom themes.
Not until hell freezes over.

*Youtube back as a default app.
See above.

*Folders with windows rather than seeing all the apps.
What's wrong with the way the folders function now?

*More social networking integration.
There's an app for that.

*Ability to delete default apps.
Could cause bad things to happen. But granted, it's not totally unreasonable.

I think a more likely option would be to move apps like Stocks, Passbook and such to the App Store and continue to have the necessities such as Phone, Mail, Messages and Music being non-removable.

1. It was promised for iOS 6 and still has not arrived: support on external BT keyboards for the same autocorrect, auto cap, etc that the onscreen keyboard has. Double space for periods etc.

I just got a Mini and a Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover. Was disappointed with the small keyboard that the natural autocorrect of iOS was missing when using the keyboard.

2. On the themes, I wouldn't expect that. However, the one thing I would like to see is two basic themes. A light one like they did and a dark one. That way you can either match or contrast your phone color. But it is interesting they added things like making the phone dialer light up in a color pulled from your wallpaper.

3. UpNext for the Music app.

Nope they didn't forget anything. You just don't like that they don't agree with you that these things need to be there

TouchPal or Swype like keyboard!!!!! Better still, to open up a little bit like what Tim Cook said. That openness should mean allowing third party system wide keyboards.

They should have added the Twitter & Facebook status updater in the notification bar! It was so handy for a quick status update. Hopefully it's back in the Beta 2. :confused::(

The greatest omission is that of a proper input system (read: SwiftKey Flow / Swype / T9 / SlideIt)! iOS keyboard doesn't come anywhere near any of these.


There are less significant ones, too (such as a lack of 3G switch in the Control Panel), etc., but really, the lack if a proper keyboard would be my main gripe.

Next on my list would be a number of hardware alterations (I know, these have little to do with iOS 7, but in my opinion, they are well overdue), including a 5" screen (no, not just taller!), powerful Stereo speakers (such as those in an HTC One), waterproofing (Liquipel / HZO / NeverWet), 128GB storage and a decidedly improved battery life (enough to get one through two days of non-stop navigation app use. I know, we'll have to wait for this one at least 10 years). And - should it at all be possible, a much larger / more light-sensitive sensor (this one I wouldn't expect to materialise before half a century from now).

Autoreply

Is autoreply to much to ask for. I would like to ability to have SMS/iMessage autoreply with a response of activated. I hoping the new API's will allow an app developer to develop a 3rd party app

Umm... YouTube was removed as a default app because Apple's contract with Google ended, not out of choice... And why is it you're arguing for more default apps (ie. YouTube) and fewer default apps at the same time? :confused:

Agreeing with everything here. From the iOS standpoint, the number one area for improvement which did not materialise was the input.

I'm hoping they actually forgot to add song ratings. I actually frequently change ratings on-the-go and there is no way to do so anymore. If this was intentional then I'm pissed.

I hope they put it back too. I use this quite a lot.
