Reminders needs some serious tweaking:
Ability to enable "all day" on due dates
Ability to sort by priority. ( currently you can assign a priority but it has nothing to do where it is displayed in a list)
Ability to sort manually

was really hoping to see 3 things
1) Profiles - like blackberry
2) Active icons (that can display info... like the weather!!! I still hate that i look at my screen and its always 73 and sunny!!!)
3) Widgets - maybe have some kind of info widgets... mail, weather, stocks, news, etc... avaiable to be placed on the homescreen.
wanted a free turn by turn - glad thats coming.

Here's my list iOS 6 features I would love:
- Ability to hide or turn off Apple pre-loaded apps
- Ability to share Reminders lists with others. (ie: my wife can make a shopping list on her phone and share it with my on my phone)
- Landscape fast app switcher
- Widgets (weather, stocks) in the lock screen
- Scrollable folders. The ability to put as many items in a folder as you want and then just swipe to view more.
That's all for now.

How about a way better way to clear notifications in the notification center. Everywhere else in iOS we swipe to the right on an object to show the delete button. I know it would mess with the slide to right to open up an app, but why can't I just tap the app icon in the notification center to open instead? That stupid tiny x and clear button drive me nuts!

reading thru this thread makes me chuckle. anyone that is familiar with Apple should know they are not going to hit a "home run" this time around (seen for myself) like already mentioned in another thread, this is more like a 5.5 update
people need to learn to lower their expectations and then learn to jailbreak if they're wanting more than what's offered

As an avid Apple TV use (whose friends and family all have iDevices) I would like to see better mirroring functionality. The fact that the entire iPad can be mirrored is great, but is kind of cheapened that in landscape mode does not fill the entire television. You end up with a screen that looks like your looked before the digital takeover when channels had black bars above and below and on either side of the picture. It really lowers the experience. Most mirroring works, but if you wanna say mirror ABC Player or TNT Player, what you get looks pretty sorry

Fully manageable photostream, camera and camera roll... I mean, the whole experience from the moment a picture is taken to the moment where it is finally displayed exactly where you want it - the camera roll or a folder. Enabling photostream should simply create a "Photostream" folder like it does now, but where you would actually have to put pictures in order to have them synced all over your other devices. In that folder would be a way in turn to enable the photostream of every single picture on camera roll or on a determined folder - something like the option to "Mirror camera roll", or "Mirror a specific folder". We should be able to name and label pictures. The camera roll UI should detect any photos recently taken and not managed and have them checked the first time you go back to it, allowing you to transfer all of them at once in another folder, to except some, add others, totally delete the ones you do not wish to keep - or simply to skip the operation and just review the roll. We should always be able to choose to add to photostream within that same operation - so I could choose a folder where new pictures are going AND to also send them to photostream. Ability to have subfolders - namely events, or places, or whatever - in folders would be nice. Ability to create a folder in advance and take pictures "from within it" could be cool, as well as the ability to take pictures "from within" any folder that's already existing. This way, that day you're at the zoo with the kids or at the beach with friends, and you just took like a hundred pictures, and suddenly you go into your camera roll, all of them are already checked and ready to be disposed at your convenience. Or not at all because you created the folder in advance to take the pictures. Oh! and ability to create different photostreams could be cool for some people who use their phone's camera at work just as much as socially and as a personal pastime. Or for just anybody, I guess.
It's just an example, there are other apps...

Sync iCloud now playing.
I'm in my car listening to music over bluetooth. When I stop the car the music stops. Now, I come into my office, fire up iTunes, and pick up where I left off. Same playlist. Same shuffle order, etc.
Listening to music in my office, pause music, go to car, right where I left off.

What Apple should change on iOS
Which would not effect the
hole iOS experience and philosophy
Options to reach commonly used apps from the lock screen
Long press > Numbers and symbols
Upper keyboard line with ( !, ?,etc ) or input of ( photos, video )
Suggestions for possible words
Long press of space button > continuous space until user stops
Widgets to switch on or off basic settings ( toggle switch :Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, etc )
Access music (play/pause/etc) from notification center
Widgets from applications like notes or mail
Google search bar for faster web searches
When launching the notification center reveal from the top to bottom (not from bottom to top )
Pause app while launching the notification center only when fully launched
When notification shown, there should be something to click in order to show the os that you got the message ( not waiting for you to see the message you so two seconds ago ! )
Use mouse with Bluetooth ( why only keyboard )
To be able to send images/videos to other non-iPhone devices
Better phone UI ( not the same IOS 1.0 line based UI from 2007 )
Customization all of groups such as favorites ,recents, contacts, etc
The ability to lock photos you don't want others to look at
An entirely redesigned UI
The ability to shoot panoramas
The ability to change the image resolution
Make the shoot button on the iPhone the same as on the iPad
Launch the multitasking bar by dragging up from the bottom.
Put apps where ever you want in the screen ( in a line or like a square )
The ability to lock apps you don't want others to look at.
Allow the app developers to make the applications live
* what I am trying to Say with live apps is that, for example the weather applications will indicate the weather in it's location or the clock app . And for 3rd party apps such as news apps like CNN or email as sparrow or clock or Eurosport or whatever
Touch and slide down an app to reveal notifications for that app
When searching the device there should be an ability to make mathematical calculations
Add Home page
All settings should be reachable from the app ( why should I have to go to settings to delete my history ? )
Search bar should be the same for URL and google ( as it is in chrome and safari in mountain lion )
Colour should change from blue to grey
Full screen for portrait mode too
Downloader in safari ( why are there 3rd party apps with downloaders and safari does not have it )
Rapidly redesigned UI
faster email download and sending
When in landscape mode multitasking should orientate in landscape ( as it does on the iPad or if only rotating in portrait, it should rotate the apps not the multitasking bar )
Siri should be faster
Siri should be able to search the web ( not launch Safari )
It should know more for people for example if you ask how tall Einstein or a Obama is, it should answer( not only for Lebron James )
I should have the choice to make sparrow my email client and chrome my internet client
Every app should have it's settings in it (not letting the user go to setting and change them and than go again back to the app)
Faster way to search the web from home screen
Faster on/off switch in applications
*When you are in Navigon and want to go to your friend who lives in the town near by and you don't know how to go there you launch the maps app and you find that your location settings are turned off . So your iPhone asks you wetherto go straight to settings or cancel .The problem is that I just don't want to go to settings to turn on my location settings this is what I want to do ! So apple should give me the option to turn on the location settings ( not go to settings so that i turn them on ) or cancel .
Reveal message and phone icon on the status bar when you have a missed message or call .
Mute button from the iPhone should be optional to mute/rotation lock ( as it is on the iPad )
