Open thread: What’s your iOS 6 feature wish list?

We know from Apple’s June 11th WWDC presentation that iOS 6 will offer features that include: an all-new Maps app with Apple-designed cartography, turn-by-turn navigation and an amazing new Flyover view; new Siri features, including support for more languages, easy access to sports scores, restaurant recommendations and movie listings; Facebook integration for Contacts and Calendar, with the ability to post directly from Notification Center, Siri and Facebook-enabled apps like Photos, Safari and Maps; Shared Photo Streams via iCloud; and Passbook, the simplest way to get all your passes in one place.

What, specifically, would you like to see in iOS 6? Better autocorrection? Finer-grained repeating options in calendar?

Please let us know below.

    1. +1

      I keep thinking they’re going to fix that. It’s really, really, annoying when you have a lot of apps, and you have to organize folders such as Games1, Games2, Games3. Until I jailbreak, I don’t even bother organizing my apps (and use Spotlight).

    2. WINDOWS 8 IS COMMING. All mac’s going back to there places where they belong under the desk, the bottom of the tech department storage closet, or a very lonely corner collecting dust. Cheer up mac fans your desktops gonna look lovely. Again.

        1. Wow why am here, one day looking around the web for peoples review and comment on tech products, cause I work in the support field and I buy gadgets just for the sake of exploring them myself. I come across this nonsense web site. and Read some BS the site is littered with BS. but it does keep me laughing.

  1. iPad/iOS wish list
    Mail cannot access contact groups!
    Groups cannot be created or managed in Contacts
    All pics go to Camera roll even though downloaded from web! 
    It creates a mess and needs completely separate destinations.
    Gmail cannot access or edit its own contact groups.
    Google maps should not be rejected unless Apple has comparable street view available globally. It should be an option at least until Apple gets it perfected. 

    1. “Google maps should not be rejected unless Apple has comparable street view ”

      The google maps app does not have street view now. you only get that at the google web site.

        1. I access street view from Contacts by clicking the address which opens the map and then clicking the person icon on left of the pin label. It works great and I wouldn’t like to be left without it…

    1. I think a file system would be a huge step backwards. Apple is attempting to simplify things, not complicate them. It would be nice if they made apps smarter at handling files though, at least IMO.

  2. “What, specifically, would you like to see in iOS 6? Better autocorrection? Finer-grained repeating options in calendar?”

    Yes, and and expanded dictionary for autocorrect and for medical terms. If Apple wants to make major inroads in the medical field, they need to do this and come out with a 7″ iPad.
    Other wishes include:
    A Safari that doesn’t need to reload a tab after 30 seconds away from that tab.
    A Safari doesn’t default to the search bar every time you open a new tab.
    That Contacts realizes that it doesn’t need to display 4 of every contact just because that contact is on 4 different Apple devices.
    Ditto iTunes and it’s songs.
    That they launch Mac-to-iOS AirDrop.

  3. 1. Siri 1.0.1
    2. Lesbian Ninja Sexbot
    3. AAF (Automatic Asshole Filtering)
    4. Apple search engine
    5. Easier system navigation.
    6. Free beer
    7. Free pizza (pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, extra cheese.)
    8. More beer
    9. A better “Remote” app
    10. Did I mention beer?

  4. Every Smartphone needs “Shutdown Requires PIN” option in Settings!

    “When a phone was stolen, smart-thieves immediately remove SIM and power it down to stop Find My iPhone like services working. So smartphones needs a setting to “Shutdown Requires PIN” option


    I get once in a way requests people saying, “I lost my phone, it’s has that GPS service, isn’t it? So how can I locate it?

    Irony is, the only smartphone that can self locate is Apple iPhone (*) and that is also ONLY(**) if you have set Apple’s Find My Phone service activated before you loose it. Then you do have a slight hope that “founders” are not “thieves” or they are not smartphone savvy enough to “power it down”.

    If they shut the phone down, keep under a drawer for a month, you have absolutely no hope of locating it ever.

    So as I say “Find My Phone” seriously need “Shutdown Requires PIN” option. This is exactly why we don’t read much of headlines on this Apple’s awesome feature because it’s fundamentally broken 

    NB: * No offense you Android fans, No other phones have “Factory Sealed Battery” unless iPhone. So they are just “DEAD” when you remove the battery! Of cause Steve Job’s & Co. thought that too 🙂

    ** Forget about getting any help from authorities unless you have a court-order, recorded your IMEI or have direct connection to so and so..

    If the phone is powered down, no technology or power on earth can find your phone unless the God helps you to locate it by luck!

    1. This is a BRILLIANT idea. If you any developers are on here please put in this request to apple. This would save so many people’s phones and it’s a brilliant feature. It’s a rarity for people to turn their phone of now so I think a pin to shut down isn’t much hassle.

  5. I wish I could set a preference for which apps remained loaded, and which never bother to stick around. Like the System app. I launch it occasionally, and when I’m done, I’d just as soon it just went away instead of taking up space in the whatever-it’s-called-area-that-appears-when-you-2click-the-home-button. Lots of apps that I use are occasional things like this and I would rather set a preference for it to just go away when I hit the home button.

  6. 1) Change the sms texting screen to look less kid like and more professional.

    2) When you search for an app in the app store and go past the 1st 25 results and then click to look at an app, when you go back, you go back to the first 25 results. This needs to be such that you go back to the last page of results you were on.
