    iCloud becoming a real Dropbox competitor (with Mountain Lion)

    Would have loved to see more MS Exchange features added:

    1. Ability of Mail and Contacts App to recognize Outlook Distribution Lists.
    2. Turn "Out of Office" for email on and off. Mail App on Lion does this already.
    3. Calendar App to show the availability of meeting invitees for work colleagues through Exchange. iCal does this already.

    I guess we will have to wait for iOS 7.

    Like that will ever happen... I don't think these features (besides toggles) resembles anything on Android.

    It's not there, but I wouldn't say I am "missing" it.

    FaceTime doesn't have group chat.

    Safari doesn't have smart search field.

    YouTuve isn't updated.

    Camera still doesnt have panorama mode.

    Weather & Clock app still not live icons. No weather app for iPad.

    Thats a very good point especially seeing as Siri can give you the weather forecast on the new iPad but lacks an actual App.

    Lyrics on iPad

    Offline maps

    Ability to tag and organise files. Not a file system, but if you have a bunch of files related to the same project, scattered between pages, number and iBooks, the ability to type the project name into spotlight and call them up. Or ask Siri to get you all of the notes related to a class etc.

    Organise photos in iPhoto.

    Honestly, I'm pretty happy with what I have seen of iOS 6 so far. When I got my first iPad I made a list of things I wished it could do, that list is much shorter now.

    3- Definitely! It needs to happen, and it can't be all that hard, but then again, Windows phone doesn't do it either.

    widgets for the notification center (it currently looks like beep on the ipad, nothin to display)

    Calendar on the lockscreen (like Lockinfo) is the single biggest thing that iOS 6 is missing.

    At least an option to switch back to a list like in iTunes and the iPhone for the iPad music app. I hate the grid view with the fury of a 1000 suns:mad:

    The one from iOS4 was so much nicer to look at.

    What isn't missing would be a much shorter list.

    better notifications
    short cuts to settings (Sbssettings)
    lock screen info - like intelliscreenx

    quick message like bitesms or message+

    widgets :eek:

    I agree with the list, except I'd like to see an overhaul of the multitasking interface. It's fine as is, but it just seems like there's a lot of wasted space. The whole bottom could slide up to almost the top, with settings at the top and more app icons below that. Seems like I have to do a lot of swiping considering all that wasted space.

    Quick turn wifi on/off. Using iCloud like dropbox. Ability to hide default apps I never use.

    I would have bet money on a Preview app that was iCloud compatible. With Preview on OSX having that feature, to me it was a no-brainer it would be in iOS 6.
