Spotlight search getting moved to the top of the notification center or multitasking tray so it is accessable everywhere, and the old spotlight search page getting a new function like maybe another way to access Siri without having to hold the home button.
Widgets would be cool, but I don't want them draining my battery.
Quick replies to texts, tweets, etc
Themes would be nice!
Better multi-tasking! Something like what you can do on iPad by swiping from the side with two fingers. Not only that, but improvements to the multitasking tray such as a delete all button.
Better text selection/editing! Its slow and annoying as is.
That's all for now. I'm sure more stuff will pop into my brain later.

Simple Updates to Notifications and Notification Center
I would really like to see Apple include a few minor but very useful (in my opinion) tweaks to the way notifications work. I get notifications all the time that I wish I could just dismiss and not have to see in notification center. For example, let's say that you get notifications from CNBC Real Time; then you know that you usually get about 10-15 a day. Some of them I would like to keep to read later and some I don't care anything about. I think you should be able to dismiss notifications that you don't want to keep or view later. I've included a few mockup attachments below to demonstrate how this might look.
First, dismissing a notification from the lock screen:
Next, dismissing a notification while using the device:
Any finally, the ability to dismiss an individual notification from the notification center:
This just gives the user a little more control and a better experience in my opinion. I just want to be able to keep things in my notification center that I'm really interesting in not necessarily ever single notification that an app provides.

Sounds like its time to try a Lumia 900 for a lot of you. I've got one in addition to my 4S and I love it. Im finding myself using it more and more.
The ease of which you can communicate/text/email people is awesome. Having people pinned to you
r homescreen is pretty nice, and makes it a hell of a lot easier to Stay in touch.
If ios 6 has something lime that, wow!

I'd love an integrated documents manager in which third party apps can access and store data in.
I also would like an enhanced notification centre with WIDGETS.
I'd like an enhanced home screen with widgets.
THEMES! Make us able to customise the look of basic elements like the lock screen, the top bars and bottom bars, the black and whites bars.

Would be nice to 'flick off' apps in the app switcher rather than spending a bit to have em wobble then tap the red circle. Just flick up and gone.
Also in NOTES app--would be really nice if we could take a picture and allow some kind of note below it for instance if I need to go to store to buy a new outlet for my house, I could take a pic of an outlet, type below 'need 3 of these' and it posts kind of like a sticky note. If there is an app for this I would LOVE to know about it---freebie one tho. :-) But to have into the app would be great.
Would like to swipe left and right for the next text message/contact once in Messages app instead of tapping top left to go back---just make it simple left and right or up and down--since they are newest-to-oldest.
New ways of opening apps like different kinds of rotation and curves. Not sure how to really call it but that would be nice to see.
When turning phone on the Apple logo on screen should glow always like the first time you update an iOS. That's just fresh if it could do that always. Blingggg!
Cannot wait to see what they have in store for us though!! :-)

Some more things that I've come up with in the recent days after experiencing the wonders of a jailbroken device:
- More security features - Big businesses might eat this feature up. I think this could be the final nail in RIM's coffin, as companys could leave their blackberries behind in favor of iPhones and iPads. This could also be a cool feature for average users who don't want their friends or family seeing their private stuff.
- Customizable Gestures - If I had to pick one favorite jailbreak app, it would be Activator. What it lets you do is set up custom gestures or hardware button activation methods to launch apps, custom menus of apps, lock your phone, bring up the app switcher, etc. I have a favorite apps menu set to show when i swipe my status bar. I would like to see this or something like it on the default iOS.
- Weather on the lock screen - Self explanitory.
- Custom backgrounds in Messages app - I would like to be able to use my homescreen background for the messages app.
- Custom Keyboard colors - A cool black keyboard would be sweet.
- Custom Notification center background - Transparency, color, adding a wallpaper to it, etc.

#1 Widgets, it's make or break time
#2 A stinking notification icon!
#3 UI refresh, Apple shouldn't have the most dated and cumbersome OS in the market
#4 Live icons
The more I think about it I really think it's time to make some major changes, looking at ICS, BB10, and Windows phone makes iOS really look like it's still stuck in 2007.

And how do you know?
And I'm no Apple fanboy, I love their stuff, but I'll go pick up a Galaxy 3 the day it comes out and turn my 4 into an iPod touch without a thought, if Apple is content to get beat and let the iPhone stagnate that's their problem, there are all sorts of other companies pushing things forward.

I hope for all of this stuff but honestly if Apple cared or listened to their customers ios 5 would already be way different then it is now. They could have kept siri in exchange for notification toggles that's way more useful then asking my phone questions I'm too lazy to Google.

Multitask switching like zephyr,dynamic badge , short cut to turn on/off wifi in nc like sbsetting , native upload photo to FB in camera roll , siri for old device, more customization home screen. Etc
I think too much for asking
