What would you like to see in iOS 7?

What new features would you like to see in iOS 7? There are loads of features from Cydia that seem utterly glaring, Apple will surely take notice...hopefully!

Convenient shortcuts or toggles for certain settings such as WiFi, BT, 3G etc.... Put them in the pull-down 'notification centre'...

- Infinidock style Dock (i.e. more than 4 shortcuts; scrollable)

- Themes... not going all nuts, but I'd like to be able to change the icon-style....

- email client... let me decide what folders of an email account to sync and which just to leave alone. More attachments, easier attachments of various files.

- Settings menu (and some other places as well): dual function for the 'back' button. Tap = 1 step back. tap/hold = back to root of menu

iPad: dual window action. The available Cydia tweak works very well. Bring it to all iPads - catch up with the Note ;)

Musicplayer: Coverflow was cool eyecandy in 2007. But it's pointless and annoying; we've all been awed and bored. Now replace it with real functionality.

- LET US D I S A B L E Game Center! F*ck the interruptions, you stupid stupid devs!

- add MTP or Mass Storage Mode. Or see my money go elsewhere. Again.

PS: There's more... but lets be real... Not much is gonna change - which is why I haven't owned an iDevice since the 3GS (2 weeks :p )

last ipone i had was 3gs, got rid has 3g connection was soo bad and generally the phone was poor, never looked back, IOS is still sitting in the old skool era and so needs to freshen up its OS somehow, not sure how tbh but less gimmicky features like siri might help if it means they concentrate more on the main core.

tbh i think they are worried where the market is going so theyt need to pull something pretty good out the hat

USB & Access to file system - same old 'basic' functions that Apple refuse to provide

Lets hope so...
As it is I would NOT own an iDevice unless jailbreak is available.
Yes, I do like the out-of-the box 'tidiness' etc etc.... but it does look old - esentially like the first iPhone with some bells and no whistles. Plus - restricted by the old UI, new features and settings menus are getting ridiculously 'complicated'/inconsistent. A strength of iOS used to be the straightforwardness - now there are settings and options that are hard to find, stupidly named etc etc...

Enable Cydia by default.
I jest of course, that would never happen but yeah lots of Cydia like tweaks would be nice, biteSMS style quick reply, Sbsettings style toggles in notification centre, customisable Activator style shortcuts etc. Functionality to actually browse files and such would be good too, both via USB and on the phone itself.
But most of thats not going to happen

Yes. Stupid, really. Over 25 million users jailbreaked with Evasion within a couple of weeks... quite a chunk of customers to p*ss off. Add the Android users who'd try iOS if they could tinker some more, and there's quite an argument to be made for jailbreaking.

Also: the argument that jailbreaking is dangerous is defeated by the fact that Apple does NOT force firmware updates. I.e. people can choose to not upgrade to iOS 6, e.g. and still use the phone while Apple claim iOS 6 closed dozens and dozens of vital security loopholes...
