A refreshed phone.

Special mention for Do not disturb as well! With all the hype about Siri and Passbook, I feel like I'll end up using DND the most.

iCloud tabs, adding photos in mail messages, and using any song as an alarm (seriously, it was about time for that). Don't really care about anything else. Passbook might be neat if the new iPhone has NFC (I don't think it will.)

I don't know... Maps and Passbook I suppose? It's kinda disappointing how few new features we're actually getting.

Nothing the OP listed. only:

Secured, private info.
1 No longer obfuscated between location and photo access.
2 Some apps in iOs6b are triggering access to contacts prompt that have no business, and obviously iOs5 users dont get this prompt/protection.

Honestly, nothing on the list you provided screams out to me. They are welcome features but I can't say that I'm excited about any of them.

I'm looking forward to this time next year.

By then iOS 6.x.x should be a proven upgrade & I'll know whether it's worth migrating too. I don't see anything compelling at this time.

iOS 5 is serving my needs just fine at the present. I have no desire to "upgrade" just because most everyone else is.

I've got a feeling my phone will get set on Do Not Disturb mode with a few friends and family on the accept list and it will never leave DND. Everyone else leaves a message. Most friends text first anyway, but this will weed out all of the telemarketers and random folks who call.

What are they doing to the email app please? I would love folders. You would think that would be easy to fix (I know you can if you use cloud)

Thanks,

PJ

Email app=Pull down to refresh instead of that reload button


I'm looking forward to Do Not Disturb, I only used Maps for street view and am sad to see that go. Other than that iOS 6 is pretty much useless to me. =(

I expect Google will release an iOS version of their Maps app, they are doing this with the You Tube app so I can't see why it won't happen with Maps.

It will be interesting to see if once the present Maps app is removed, if we will be able to access Google maps via Safari and in doing that Street View?

I have iSwifter and I can access Street View on that, but it's a bit slow, but i suppose it's better than no access to Street View.

Google are currently attempting to block all iPhones being importing to the US, so Apple will properly ban all Google apps from Appstore and rightly so.

1. Widgets
2. Having something other than Safari as the default browser to open links
3. Not being stuck with Yahoo weather in the drop down notification bar

oh wait, none of that is happening

Maps by far! I use the GPS a lot while driving and it is simply not safe sometimes to keep clicking through the screen. Turn by turn is gonna be sah-weet :D.

I'm still crossing my fingers for a killer 'One more thing' on the new iPhone!
