Better UI, proper notification system, a proper FILESYSTEM for christ sakes.

The iPad needs far more significant updates. It needs to be less "app" centric, in the sense that every app lives in a completely oblivious bubble, and more like how HoneyComb has a file system that all apps can draw from. If I download a video to my iPad, ANY app capable of opening videos should be able to use the same copy, without having to copy it to EACH app. I need to be able to override more system settings like choosing my default browser.

This is more of a thing for specific third party developers, but it would be cool if ALL apps were able to rotate portrait or landscape.

Also an Apple made iOS to Mac OS X screen sharing solution. Even if it were somehow tied to MobileMe would be fine for me!

It seems that most people's wants are software based.

I'd like to see full speed, dual band N Wi-Fi. Task switching needs to have a way of allowing you to choose whether to close an app. or send it to the background (swipe gesture towards the top of the screen closes it, swipe gesture towards the bottom of the screen puts into the background?). Option to turn off any and all pop-up notifications, with indicators for new email, voice mail, and text messages always visible when pop-ups are disabled. It would be nice to have a couple of hardware LEDs, but that would be too much to ask. Facetime HD camera, 8MP still camera, and A5 dual core CPU seem to be a given if the rumors are true. I'd like to see an expansion of the flash memory up to a maximum of 64GB, 128GB if it can be done.

You just hit the nail on the head got me. Though I'd rather 128GB, not KB :P.

I signed up for a plan

I signed up for a Telus plan, and therefore got my iPhone 4 at a discount price, and I doubt I will replace it before the Telus plan ends in a couple years. At that time, I fully expect lots of marvellous upgrades from Apple. Even then, I would not pay for an upgraded iPhone 6 or or 7 or 8, unless the software was fixed a bit:

1. The key areas on the keyboard are too close together for my old fingers. I am really tired of all the typos when I type. I really send curt emails due to this.


2. It is a phone, they say, and I would like to see lots of tweaking to make the voice phone a bit more better.

More:

3. Battery does not last long between charges, a scant day in the Big City. Must be fixed.

4. Phone sound. I want a traditional ring tone, not the goofy sounds that came with the iPhone 4.I want a real phone sound.


Hardware? I have a black iPhone 4. I think it's only 16 gigs, but I have a few iPod Classics for storage on the road.

Everyone seems to be echoing the same software problems... mostly related to notifications. The notifications and ridiculously slow loading of the camera were so infuriating to me that I sold my iPhone 4 to get a different phone.

It's a sad sad day when I have to admit that I bought a Windows Phone 7 because Microsoft of all people made a better UI than Apple. As pretty as the iPhone is compared to, well, any other phone, it's the UI I spend all day working with, so it trumps beauty.

I agree with most of the other previous wishes. The two things I would really love to see, software wise, are tasks with sync to Mobile Me, and fully customizable ringtones, for everything. Gone are the days where there might be one or two iPhones in a given place, heck it's rare not to have 3 or 4 sitting at the same table at a social gathering. Makes it extremely annoying when an email comes in, and no one knows who's it was...
