    I've taken the time to mockup the features that I think are sorely missed on the new iPhone OS 4.0 (at least missed at introduction).

    So far I have done a series of images depicting a revamped push notification system, adhering to Apple's new multitasking and folder UI elements. I think it looks great, and Apple could probably implement this in one day if they actually used their own devices and realized how damn useful this would be.

    First, you have the dormant notification bar on the home screen. Then, you tap, and it opens!


    Here's what it would look like when a notification comes in-app (note the red button - close and delete notification, green button - ignore for now).


    Revisions: llofte noticed that the solution blocks out the use of the fourth row of icons, I hadn't thought of that since I personally don't use that row.
    In this revision, I move the location of the tray to the status bar:


    I know there's other features I'm forgetting, let me know what else you'd like to see mock'd up!
    Wow! Those are great mockups.

    Here's a feature that's easy to mock up: 3-finger swipe for back and forward in iPad Safari!

    at some point apple will have to update the notification system, but its hard to say when, because they focus on something once per year.

    I really hope they surprise us this year and update it with 4.0's release. They must know how ridiculous PNS is on the iPad..
