    One obvious one would be USB C charging and perhaps bigger batteries in their smaller phones?

    What's yours?

    Allow the placement of icons ANYWHERE on the screen.
    I know, not ground breaking. But....

    Always on display for the iPhone....to show #s of unread mails & messages, date, TOD, timers, alarm set etc. Loooooong overdue. The argument that it costs too much battery is utterly ridiculous.

    For me, this has always been such an out of all reason omission, that it constantly makes me want to have an Android phone. Maybe I will change sides eventually.
    (explanation: for me, as a former long term Blackberry user, it drives me mad to not see that something has arrived, and to always having to turn the screen on. I still didn't get used to this, after several years with the iPhone)

    Essentially...more software customisation. Icons anywhere, ability to set default apps, have an Always On Display, customisable app icons and notification etc.

    Also expandable storage via microsd would be nice, since Apple charges quite a lot for storage and the default is lower than most of their Android counterparts (64GB vs 128GB).

    Yes, RIM, I mean BlackBerry spoiled us.
    I miss my red light notifications. Even more so if I return to the room my device is in, after being away for a while.

    I am not one of those that takes my mobile everywhere. Even at work, I leave it on my desk half the time. People get mad because they cannot get hold of me (I work in IT). I just laugh, am not tied to my mobile people

    Ooooh yeah. But then, I’ve always loved my Blackberry devices and I still miss them.

    As most folks know, I am also a old Blackberry user and I know most of the Apple purist out there don’t like the blinking red LED for notifications, but I do miss that feature.

    The one thing I will say is IOS has come a long way with the Notification Center. For those who used OS10, the BB Hub was a great feature, but I have learned to like how the current Notification Center works and is only going improve with future updates.


    I would also like to have the ability the customize the the way the icons are displayed on the home screen. I think Apple has a to walk a fine line, there are folks who love the simplicity of IOS and those of us who would like to see them expand on its capabilities, time will tell how they approach it.

    the thing is, I can turn the LED off on a Blackberry, but I can't turn it on on an iPhone.

    I have all notifications apart from text and phone ringer turned firmly off,and don’t use voicemails, so that does not matter to me. What I would like is to be able to see what track I was listening to without interrupting my reading.

    On iOS, while reading (say from the Kindle app), you can swipe down from the top, and it shows the playing track, no?
    Unless I totally misunderstood.

    One more thing, 90hz on their phone screens? But 60hz touch sensing is pretty good already.
