    You know the drill, with every major iOS update, there are things that we had hoped would be included, but wasn't so let's here it. What are things you are hope will be included with iOS 8? Me? I'd like a built-in file system that auto-syncs to iCloud and that would allow me to send "documents" from within the email and iMessage apps....

    Google Plus integration

    Choosing which control center toggles I want

    Weather info on the lockscreen with refresh options

    The share widget added back with an option to be in either notification center or control center.

    An option to disable the parallax effect only

    Enabling hardware acceleration for apps

    An iOS wide night mode

    A "my documents" type of folder for apps to save/access files like PDF files, pictures, videos, music in one location but also apps can create there own folders within the "my documents" folder to store saved games. This folder can be an option for the user.

    Power savings options like performance, balanced, power saving, custom.

    And finally...

    An option to install or uninstall features/default apps you need or don't need on the fly or at least an option to completely disable features and hide apps.

    - The ability that when you pick your phone up it knows this and shows the time and any notifications. Sort of a quick peek look.
    - Actionable notifications.
    - Have Siri be on device. No need to go to the cloud for an on device search.
    - Staying in the Siri vein, I would not mind if they added ability to just speak to the phone, rather than have to hold down button. (Some people may not love this one as it can seem intrusive. However, if they give an option if you want it enabled that could work).

    The ability to choose which apps open by default.

    Most noticeably, the ability to open another browser, instead of Safari, from a link in an email for example.

    Or change my default messaging app to something like BiteSMS (the default on my jailbroken iPhone 5).

    I agree Siri needs some on device activity but the space it would take will hurt the 16GB devices but if they drop the 16 for the 32 it could work out

    Better multi tasking options.

    Ability to chose if you want your emails, contacts Calendar, messages and keyboard with a light theme or a dark theme.

    more options for unlocking the phone, finger print scanner is nice but its not my favourite feature. I like blackberry 10's picture password, its simple yet not easily figured out.

    air gestures, would be nice to answer a phone by waving your hand over it if you are doing something messy where you don't want your screen to get dirty or you need both your hands.

    battery saving options

    control center customization

    There are a further few things i'd like to see implemented in IOS8 that aren't outside the bounds of possibility.

    - More granular control over settings. Say I want my keyboard tones to stop when I am dialling a number but I do want keyboard clicks when I am typing, there should be toggles for these things individually for instance.
    - More control over what can be in the notification panel. The ability to add and remove items from the notification pull down.
    - More Lock screen customisation. For those who are jailbroken, IntelliscreenX is just about my most favourite tweak and is worth a jailbreak just for that (in my opinion, of course, your mileage may vary). For those unaware, it allows more notification information to be shown on the lock screen.

    Airplay via airdrop, since AirDrop uses Bluetooth to find devices and then uses wifi direct to transfer the file why not use wifi direct for airplaying videos to an Apple TV.

    A decent operating system would be nice for a change. I have over 300 apps and it takes me forever to find most of them so I can delete them, move them around, in folders, etc. The Find feature should let us know which page the app is on so we can quickly find it and do what we want with it. Also, being able to record our phone calls is a necessity for some of us. It's sad that we have to jailbreak our phones to get this feature. Developers keep telling me iOS does not allow it. Finally we need better shortcut controls, like being able to write more than one line, add time stamps, etc.

    What's not decent about the current OS version?

    You want the Operating System to keep your device organized for you 😳

    Just a small bit of customization. I'd like to be able to hide the dock image and icon labels and adjust the scale of the app icons. Also separate toggles for the different animations.

    iOS NEEDS some type of swype for the keyboard, especially with Android and WP8.1 both having it.

    People say they want a file manager, I agree but not an in depth one. I don't need access to the file system, I want access to a Documents, Music and Pictures folder that show up when you connect your phone to a computer and a way to view files on the phone from the phone. Also a way to attach files to an email from within the email app.

    Not a Swype person, but understand the appeal. If the Documents feature and functionality you described shows up in iOS 8, that would be awesome.

    I hope if the phone gets bigger they will allow us to position the icons anywhere on the screen. Or at least stack them from the bottom up.

    Clear all button in notification center and task manager! Seriously, that would be great. Also, I would love being able to change the control center toggles.
