    YouTube doesn't allow it because they have a subscription service to get that feature. But I can listen to other apps such as Netflix in the the background.
    On the Pixel you can have 2 apps opened on the same screen running at the same time.

    In other words you can watch or listen to YouTube and make a post to this forum at the same time on the same screen. That's true multitasking. I hope the iPhone gets it. I find it very useful and would use it a lot.

    Or maybe it's just another example unwilling to play nice with anything related to Google or vice versa. Like no Gmail PUSH in native iPhone email, need the "Gmail App" for that...

    That's not by definition what multitasking is. It's a feature that utilizes multitasking but not "true" multitasking. Apps not exiting in the background and continuing to run as you switch between is true multitasking.

    That being said I agree and really hope they implement those features.

    The Gmail app works great as well as Google's Inbox app. Google apps work excellent on iOS.

    Used to work for you? I never could be on YouTube then respond to a text and YouTube would still be running.

    I used to listen to music on YouTube in the background. It paused like Netflix did when you exited and you would just have to hit play again.

    Totally understand that. Not my point. Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, you pick one and they allow PUSH email in the native iOS mail app.

    Gmail, however requires the actual Gmail app to get PUSH working correctly. It's about whether you like it or not, or if it works, the fact is you don't need to do it for other email hosts. I have Outlook, 2 Yahoo, 2 Gmails. In the native app I get Outlook and 2 Yahoo accounts to push. For Gmail I have to Fetch. That's my point. Or I could use the app, but was merely pointing out that they don't play nice in the NATIVE APP. I'd like PUSH Gmail in the native app.

    Bigger battery, night vision camera lenses so you can see at night before the flash goes of, lighter phone (my note3 felt lighter than my 6S does)

    I've also came from android. I was using sony's for many years and tried to avoid apple's just to be not like many. But recently I wanted to change the device and I've realized the difference when I've grabbed apple and most of androids. Camera, sound.... so now I'm the happy owner of i7.

    I came from blackberry. Just moved to my iphone 7 plus last week. A few things that i miss is the hub and real multi tasking. If ios can have these 2 things, i bet it will top all what is out there. Not that its not great now. Its already more than awesome but with hubs, all your notification can be at one place, it will be really cool.

    I use a BlackBerry bold 9900 and an iPhone 5c as well as an iPad air. And I really wish that with Apple talk to text would be a little more accurate. I really don't like typing on an iPhone with the virtual keyboard so I find myself constantly using talk to text. I'm sure it is something that will improve with each update regardless....

    It's funny how many comments are features that are present in Android

    I'd like to have a decent photo app

    Android's "do not disturb" where I can get call AND texts from my favorites

    And to just plug the phone into my Windows computer and zap pics, music, pdf files, etc. back and forth

    Better Touch ID, it still fails to register a lot on the iphone 7. Personally, I needed to go with a bigger storage option than the base.

    Ok instead of making an entire post about this, I'll just post here. It seems appropriate. If I could change anything I would put the camera setting for the phone in the camera app. I mean that's just common sense. Why in the hell in 2017 do I have to go into the settings of my phone to add a photo grid change resolution among other things. That's ridiculous. Come on Apple. I love my iPhone 7 but mainly because all of my friends have iPhone and the quality of the apps. Besides that. I feel a little left behind after getting rid of my S6. Yes I said S6.

    I would also like the vibration silent switch to be flush with the phone because every time you change cases, it always trips it and it must be hard on it when people change cases a lot.
