When iOS 5 was released last October, it brought with it a sleuth of features big – iCloud, Siri, and iMessage a lot of notably – and small, such as the ability to assign individual text tones to contacts, for one. and now that the months are flying by and we’re beginning to technique the release date of first beta of the next major version of iOS – iOS 6 – now seems like the best time to pen a list of features that I hope Apple introduces to iOS.

More beneficial Lock Screen

Currently, when you double-tap the home button while in the lock screen, iPod controls are retrieved. It would be great if other apps could also access this area, like the calendar or clock (timer, stopwatch) apps, or even third-party apps. For apps where data can be edited (such as the calendar), it must be required that you enter in your passcode to make changes. but it would be great to be able to skim through data or access the controls of certain apps must you configure it.

Read Receipts On A Per-Contact Basis

While there are crucial contacts and friends who I may reply to as soon as I can, there’s also that annoying type of texter who may consistently badger you for a response. And, like the people who question why you haven’t read their email minutes after you sent it, they’ll see your read receipt and question why you haven’t responded. I think that this could be a beneficial feature.

Siri APIs

Providing users with the ability to send commands to built-in iOS apps with their voice, Siri is already quite useful. but it can be even a lot more beneficial if third-party developers could integrate their apps with it. I’d love to have Siri read out tweets to me, or brief me on project tasks that are due in Trello.

Notification center Widgets

On top of making the lock screen a lot more useful, it would also be great to see Apple make some functionality improvements to the Notification Center. just as you can see, at a glance, stocks and weather information, it would be great if third-party apps had the ability to offer a Notification center widget as well.

Improved iPad Multitasking

Currently on the iPad, you cannot use two apps side-by-side; you can only switch between them. It could be beneficial to see multitasking implemented better, maybe as it is in Windows 8 where you can pin a Metro app to the side and have it take up 30% of the screen area.

Revamped home Screen

iOS’ home screen looks dated now. currently it looks pretty much the same as it did in v1.0. It needs some sort of a visual refresh.

Facebook Integration

Twitter integration already exists within iOS, so why not add Facebook integration? considering how horrible the Facebook for iphone app is, it could be beneficial to allow people to post photos and maybe even identify friends and manage albums within Photos.app. You could also pull photos for contacts who may not be on Twitter; plenty of possibilities here.
