What would you like to see in iOS 7?
It's about time, folks! Apple has announced that its annual developer conference, WWDC, will take place from June 10 to June 14, so that is when we expect the company to introduce the next version of its mobile platform, iOS 7. Wohoo!

But what is iOS 7 going to be like? That's surely a very interesting question, as there's now a new head of the development team at Apple, and it's Mr. Jony Ive himself. Has he managed to overhaul the beautiful, but aging interface? Is he going to revolutionize the iOS experience in ways we haven't imagined? Nobody knows yet, but hopefully it'll all become clear on June 10.

We've already come up with a list of features that we'd really love to see in iOS 7, and while we considered slipping it under Mr. Ive's front door, we aren't really sure if this is going to work. But we know when Apple would listen! They would listen if the people tell them what they want in iOS 7, so why don't you, guys, help them out and start posting your wishes in the comments right now? Well, OK, we can't really guarantee that someone from Apple is going to see this, although our informed and passionate audience is pretty big, but it'll at least be fun, right?

What would you like to see in iOS 7? We're all ears!

I personally don't care too much for widgets. They are cool, but I could see how they would drain the battery more than usual, which wouldn't make them worth it. What iOS needs is some sort of user interface overhaul. Right now they're pulling a "BlackBerry". What I mean by this is they haven't really changed anything with their phones since they have come out. They need some inovation. Android is ALWAYS upgrading their interface to give the people more variety and selection. Apple needs to do the same. I honestly believe people are getting "bored" of their phones. You can add an extra row of icons, make the screen bigger, and slightly upgrade the camera as many times as you want, but this is not the recipe for success. Do something creative!

Nicely brainwashed.... iPhone is inferior in compare to some good Android devices=great stamina even with widgets + easily replaceable battery on the go :-)

Where in my statement did I say I support Apple in any way, shape or form?

I don't think widgets use much battery at all. I have at least 1 widget on every page of my homescreen, and I did my own test to see how they affect battery life by taking them all off for 3 days, and I didn't really notice any battery differences, maybe 1% or 2%, if at all.

Widgets don't drain your battery unless they are refreshing everytime (like twitter, facebook widgets)...
BUT quick toggles for settings, speed dial for contacts, music buttons... Those Widgets only take a small amount of RAM which is not draining battery, and in exchange they are giving you faster access to features you can only dream with an iOS device out of the box...

I would definitely want to:
1) be able to transfer wahtever file I want from my pc or mac to my iphone without the being exposed to the pain of using itunes

2) and I would also want to be able to download whatever file I want through safari

3) have a file manager for my files on my iphone

Those 3 things are very basic stuff for me and I think we should've had those straight from ios 1 not on ios 7

Live icons and a new UI.
iOS has almost everything other than that.

I know , I know ..
Same ol super duper UI.with all kinds of restrictions.
And this time with 400 new features. With 200 of them being improvement in siri..and other 200 that will satisfy ios users with small updates ..

But the fact is that all ios users want Android features. ..!!

Default programs selection - set YouTube app to open such links, Google Maps to open links to google maps site, and be able to change the default whatever - browser, call manager, email....

Options for apps to "integrate" in the share menu as in Android, so I can easily tap on a pic to be shared via Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp or Instagram.

Three thumbs down for asking for personalization? Let me give you a thumbs up for your sane request.

agreed with blingbling, thumbs up for a simple and reasonable request. Guess those 3 people like being "plain"

1-A file explorer/manager, and no need to jailbreak just to move files around.
2-Built-in downloader in Safari.
3-LG Optimus G battery life.
4-A newer UI.

Those features would get me back to the iPhone

Seems that iOS users want features which already exists on Android.

A few small issues aren't enough to make most change though. Both have their benefits.
