Well one thing I hope for is better notifications. Why should you be interrupted with your movie by a stupid purple pop up?.
as far as a redesign. I say its time. The cartoon-ish lookinmg UI is nice at the start, but gets old real quick. Just look at Windows XP or even the first few generations of OSX.
How exactly would you like the OS to be designed?

If iOS 5 has anything changed i'd agree with the notification system...there's plenty of room to improve things in that department. The layout itself could use slight changes here and there, but an overall change is certainly not needed because it works, and it works well...enough to keep iOS as the preferred phone operating system, even with the handful of other systems out there.

I find it hilarious that Android users like Chris up there will call iOS cartoonish, and say it has no customizability, and then they'll praise webOS. webOS has the most childish, cartoony UI of anything and you can't even put apps on the home screen nevermind widgets.

Clearly iOS is the most successful OS out there, which is evidenced by their sales and customer satisfaction, app revenue, number of users on android and blackberry who want an iPhone, etc...
There's no reason for Apple to believe they need a complete overhaul. But I have a feeling they will do something drastic some time soon just because they feel like it.

I concur with others about the horrible notifications on iOS. In every other sense, it's a gorgeous, well-thought out system, but it was designed for an occasional pop-up, but not a bunch. I miss stuff all the time. When I'm at work, during that eight to 12 hour period, it's off. When I turn it on, I get overwhelmed with notifications, and once the first one comes, the rest are overwritten. Then I wind up missing information and it's beyond aggravating. Apple needs to fix this. Make it more elegant. Don't cause it to take over the screen. Give me the option to dismiss or save for later.

@ Sean. I guess your display picture sums you up real well. Have you even used a HTC phone before? You know that clock widget can be changed and even removed right? Also there is an update to sense that will polish things up.

As far as your retort, what difference does it make whether or not the widget can be changed or removed? It's one PIECE of an overall cheesy layout in my opinion, and an update can't change the basic design that they gave it...it will just make it a little cluttered (maybe).
One of my good friends that i see almost daily has the HTC Droid Incredible, i've actually played with it a good bit, I'm certainly not a fan of the droid OS, but on the HTC phone, it reminded me of an unpolished, scattered mess...but i'm not here to talk about my opinion of the HTC phones, this is an iPhone forum that this thread is posted in...and still one HUGE question i have in regards to why you're still posting in here.

I would get over it if you had anything worth saying in here...thus far you've got the attitude of a jealous 7 year old, with the logical comprehension of a small tree sloth...are the HTC boards that boring to where all you can do is post useless and moot comments in an iPhone forum, to which you have no relevance to? Pitiful...
