    Default What Apple should change on iOS without effecting the iOS experience and philosophy

    What Apple should change on iOS
    Which would not effect the
    hole iOS experience and philosophy

    -Lock screen
    Options to reach commonly used apps from the lock screen
    -Keyboard
    Long press > Numbers and symbols
    Upper keyboard line with ( !, ?,etc ) or input of ( photos, video )
    Swipe
    Change fonts
    Suggestions for possible words
    Long press of space button > continuous space until user stops
    -Notification Center
    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
    -Bluetooth
    Use mouse with Bluetooth ( why only keyboard )
    To be able to send images/videos to other non-iPhone devices
    -Phone
    Better phone UI ( not the same IOS 1.0 line based UI from 2007 )
    Customization all of groups such as favorites ,recents, contacts, etc
    -Camera
    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
    -Home Screen
    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
    -Safari
    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 )
    -Email
    Rapidly redesigned UI
    faster email download and sending
    -Multitasking
    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
    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 )
    -Extras
    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 )

    To use a mouse I'm guessing that would require a cursor on the screen? Hideous!

    But that's my point, why would I want my iPad to be a laptop? Just my opinion!

    I agree with unifying the URL box and Search box. They did it with Safari in Mountain Lion, don't see why they couldn't do the same.

    I like the idea of quick toggles for Wi-Fi, Cellular, Brightness, etc..
    Just like how you post right from Facebook and Twitter in the NC, I'd like to see that same ability given for texting.

    Sounds like you want the customization level of android. Forget about it. The most ridiculous of your suggestions? A google search bar.
