    Now that iOS is almost at it's prime with icloud, imessage, photostream and siri( and many others like camera hardware keys and shortcuts etc.), what else can you expect from next release to make it an unrivaled OS. What I wish is this:
    Proper homescreen and lockscreen widgets.
    All mobile bluetooth facility
    USB mass storage mode.
    I think these 3 points sums it up. What about you guys?? It is already sufficient the way it is but we always want more, don't we?

    I don't care about any of the things you listed, but I would like a Mobile Me style online photo gallery and the ability to delete photos out of photostream. The big thing I've been wanting since the beginning is multi-user logins for shared iPads, that's been a thorn and it gets even worse with iCloud syncing. Other than that, it rocks.

    I don't really ask for a whole lot. Just, PLEASE, allow me to decide what apps are on my phone! I wanna be able to delete weather, stocks, contacts, compass, voice memos, newsstand, etc. WHY are we forced to keep them?! It's not like we wouldn't be able to download 'em again should we change our minds. Ugh.

    This is something that should've been allowed since iPhone OS 1. For **** sake, it took 'em four freakin years to allow deletion of individual calls! As much as I love Apple, it's little **** like this that I can't quite understand or justify.

    I'm not even asking for new and innovative ****. I was just want **** that makes sense!

    I don't expect much from apples iOS. I depend on jailbreaking for my needs.

    I thought we were going to get new maps in iOS 5 since Apple bought two mapping companies recently. I'm guessing were going to see that as the main thing in iOS 6. I also hope Apple improves multitasking. I like to see them use more of a WebOS approach with cards and flicking them away type of deal, and I wish you could close all your apps at once.

    I'd like the option to have a speed dial/favorites on the lock screen...maybe even a number pad so you can make calls more quickly. It is a PHONE after all. :)

    Would also like quick access to settings like brightness, wifi on/off and bluetooth on/off.

    Basically I'd like LockInfo and SBSettings to come stock so it doesn't need to be jailbroken. :)

    Another thing I'd like to see: a face lift!

    I love everything about my iPhone and I can't see myself ever moving to another platform, however, after four years of staring at "squares" (the apps), I'm ready for a new look. I'm not sure what, exactly, but I wanna see something new and refreshing. Apple, I'm sure, can think up something sexy. As long as they don't turn into the clutter fest that Android is, I'll be okay.

    There needs to be just general improvements. They need to look to the jailbreak scene for inspiration.

    • Be able to lock in landscape mode (its very annoying to watch a long video)
    • Better access to brightness (SBSettings), lower brightness (Dimmer), maybe even a f.lux like setting
    • More than 12 damn apps in a folder
    • Quick composition of texts (biteSMS)
    • Theming (but that will never happen)
    • A way to read/send texts from your computer

    Yes! That's one thing I love about Google Voice. I love that I can go on their site and text all day long (when I'm at the office or in class) with my friends/family and not have to take out my phone. I'm guessing this whole iMessage thing is a small step in that direction. I think we'll eventually see it make an appearance in Lion, hopefully? An iChat integration would be nice.

    I just want to be able to copy a calendar entry (all details) and paste it into another date. I'm really surprised it hasn't happened yet.

    - Some improvements in the Maps/Navigation/GPS area. I expected that in iOS 5 :(

    - A lot more SIRI stuff (reading emails, opening and closing apps, close all apps, read the wolfram cards, support for more languages, a SDK to allow developers to integrate their apps in SIRI).

    - Tighter integration between SIRI and the improved Maps app. Calculate distances between 2 points, estimate the time based on previous trips and stuff like that.

    - More improvements for the multitasking

    - A facelift. Live icons and more customization options

    It will be interesting to see what comes post Steve Jobs into the next release. I wonder if there are features he didn't like that may now make it in.

    The BIG feature for iOS 6 will be the new maps feature Apple is working on.

    I hope they implement this in the next couple of revisions:

    Volume down for video.

    Since Volume up can be used to snap a picture, volume down should be used for taking videos. This will be quicker than having to slide the bar and possibly missing important moments.
