Well Apple did there WWDC keynote and "developers" got to play with the first build iOS 6. Is there something they didn't add but really should have... could be big or small?

My list:
Weather on lock screen (All)
Live Apps (All)
Omnibar in Safari (All)
Brightness Slider (iPhone) + Setting toggles (All) in multitask tray
Youtube Redesign (All)


Additional:
AirDrop (All) - jackc
FaceTime group chat (All) - irDigital0l
Weather app (iPad) - irDigital0l
Camera app with panorama mode (All) - irDigital0l
Landscape support (iPhone) - ric275, irDigital0l
Offline Maps (All) - Reddkryten
Lyrics (iPad) - Reddkryten

iCloud becoming a real Dropbox competitor (with Mountain Lion)

Siri iPhone 4 along with 3G FaceTime on iPhone 4 and maybe landscape support for iPhone and iPod touch...

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.

Here is my list:
Weather on lock screen - When I look at the time, I should see the weather right next to it.
Live Apps - Like the calendar app, some more native and maybe some third-party apps icons should be able to change.
Omnibar in Safari - iOS Safari not following OS X Safari... Its like iPhone not getting 4G like iPad.
Brightness Slider + Setting toggles in multitask tray - Brightness slider is already in iPad why not iPhone. And Quick access to bluetooth, airplane, wifi would be welcomed... I prefer in the multitask tray over the notification tray.
Youtube Redesign - the graphics got sharpened but that is it... still the same garbage from previous iOS.
Get an Android :)

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.

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.

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.

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.
