This iOS 10 Wish List concept is full of ideas we'd love to see at Apple's WWDC16 keynote

Designer Ralph Theodory has a knack for coming up with impressive "wish list" concept renders of current iOS versions. Last year, he did a banger of a job illustrating some iOS 9 feature proposals, and now – just hours away from Apple's WWDC 16 keynote – the man is back with a vengeance! The features in Ralph's iOS 10 Wish List concept are proposed by the Apple community, while the designer is responible for the true-to-life graphics that looks as if they are lifted from Apple's website.

Among the brighter ideas included here are multiple user accounts with separate TouchID fingerprints, a customizable Control Center, minimized apps and floating windows on the iPad, 3D Touch Speed Dial, uninstalling stock Apple apps (come on, like that will ever happen...), Dark UI for power-saving on future AMOLED screen iPhones, and redesigned Spotlight Search API with custom quick search actions.

Check out Ralph's iOS10 Wish List concept inside the slideshow and video below.

Impatiently waiting for the official features list of iOS 10 (not a bloody wish list, mind you)... And to be honest, I'm not expecting anything mind-blowing from Apple... Probably just minor visual tweaks and likely better force Touch integration... On the other hand, Android is making some SERIOUS progress with split screen multitasking and actionable notifications... But still, I really wish that Google change that awfully plain and outdated settings menu and drop down notifications panel... And a continuum like desktop feature would be most welcomed too... In conclusion, The Android N will probably blow past the iOS 10 in every department except for Optimization and fluidness!

I think iOS should focus on stability, iOS 9.x is nowhere near as stable as iOS 5 or 6. Android should focus on optimization.

Optimization is usually an OEMs issue mainly. Most nexus devices run super well and smooth after initial hiccups after launch.

Oh I see, can't comment much about that because I haven't owned a nexus device. Also, maybe a little bit out of context but.. JAVA SUCKS, don't know why they chose java for android.

If you have to ask why Java sucks, then you really don't know anything about development. Java is what helped propel Android to where it stands today, that and it's VM. Android compiled it's precompiled apps at runtime, and as time moved on now the apps are compiled at install time. Java and Android allowed it's apps and ecosystem to become agnostic. Now everyone wants and is trying to copy Androids agnostic formula. Look at Apple with their Swift language and runtime does something similar with its runtime. Even Microsoft saw the benefit in Androids agnostic platform and they came out with their Universal apps. When Developers can make one app, and now that same app works on x86, Arm, MIPS, or anything else you throw at it. This helped and allow OEMs to try one SoC and go to the next. Knowing that their users would still be okay if they changed processors next time. All other platforms including iOS Developers have been compiling and optimizing their apps for Apples specific flavor of Arm processors which locks Apples ecosystem of apps to use only Apples hardware. Those iOS apps don't run on x86, or on any other Arm, or MIPS processors. Ask yourself why Apple made a Swift runtime for Linux. It's so Apples iOS Developers could take advantage of the IoT and SBCs that are currently on the market. Which is dominated by Linux. Also a developer could write one app in Swift, and now it would also run on Linux. Just as long as Apples Swift runtime was supported on that Linux hardware. Just like Java and Android on those same SBCs. You might hate Java, but think next time to what actually helped Android propel and exceed in the market. It was Java. Write once, run anywhere.

"In conclusion, The Android N will probably blow past the iOS 10 in every department except for Optimization and fluidness!" So the two most important aspects then!!

How should the settings menu and drop down notifications panel be changed?Works great for me.

Funny how TouchWiz has had most of these features since 2013...
