What do you want to see at WWDC 2012 Keynote?


I'd like more iMessage features, making it easier - sharing a contact, location, etc. straight from the messages app. Updated contacts app where I can group people such as friends, family. Multiple signatures for the email app AND last but not least, Facebook integration! LET'S GO WWDC 2012!

A new Black Matte MacBook Pro with a retina display but alas, I know I'm dreaming. So, I'll take a nice new iOS 6 beta to try out instead.

Honestly, I am hoping for Widgets. I think if the next iPhone is Quad-Core it could still keep the smoothness of iOS wit the features of Widgets. Playing around with the Samsung GS3 I think Android has finally made the OS work smoothly, because of the Quad-Core chip.

I want simple things, like left and right arrow on the keyboard for editing text.
I want the Photos app's to show them in the news one first order.
I want full siri.

I think that I'd like a multitasking overhaul - a bit like the CardSwitcher jailbreak tweak.
Maybe also the SBSettings type switches for Data, Bluetooth etc in the Notification Center.
There's the potential for it and Apple need to be listening to what the Jailbreaking community have to offer,

Widgets widgets widgets, the last big thing iOS is missing. Widgets or bust.
Everything else is just minor tweaks, turn by turn built in, UI re-fresh, notification icon in the statusbar, and a new lockscreen would be nice, how about some more info than just the time and date? User configurable lockscreen widgets would do the trick.
Apple needs to blow me away if they want me to stay..

A silver, OSX UI. More widgets in notification centre. Maybe launchpad?? Multitasking that uses more of the screen, showing the app page. I'd loooove Siri to come to iTouch bit it probably won't.

I don't know why people want widgets in the notification panel, it's for notifications! If it's full of widgets it kind of defeats the purpose, widgets need to be where they belong, on the home/lockscreen, with the iPhone 5 getting a taller screen there's plenty of room for them too.
Maybe widgets will only be offered on the 5 since it will have the larger screen, kind of like this year's Siri, something only the new phone gets..

Good post. Yeah, i don't widgets cluttering the notification center. I've disabled what's already offered.

The new rumoured 4 inch screen is useless. That's too small for anything but a phone. It certainly isn't big enough widgets. Why did people keep on saying the iphone5 is taller? 0.5inches? Only a midget or dwarf may find that meaningful.

(You mean after Steve Jobs risen again and smiting the non-believers with his terrible heavenly sword?)
Consolidation and convergence. Mt. Lion is a step in the right direction, iCloud situated better to bring various devices together. Some word about where Apple's next steps will lead. General big picture information.

Better notifications on the iPad. It is poorly done as it stands now. Some type of file system. Siri has been in beta long enough. Fix it.
What I really want in iOS6 is for Apple to make sure programs are able to work with it smoothly, so developers do not have to do a complete rewrite just to make their app work.

The fact that it'll work on the 3GS tells me this will be an iterative change rather than a deep change. Which is fine, if a little boring.
As for the keynote, since it can't be a STEVENOTE, does that make it a Cooknote?

On a different note, I -love- my old 3GS. It is always there as the reliable old standby for me to pop in my sim card with an adapter at a moment's notice if I want to go for a 20km jog or daytime hike! Why take out my highly vulnerable 4S? And yet there it lays, 2009 vintage and STILL going to get iOS6, if rumors are true. A little slower, no Siri ... whatever, it can very nearly do everything the 4S can do. It plugs along like a reliable old donkey, and I love it for that.

Notification center needs more widgets. Maps needs to be updated. Im also hoping to see features that may hint towards the next iPhone having a larger screen. We will see. Theres always that awesome feature that no one knew was coming.

I want iCloud to include fully functional Pages, Numbers, and Keynote similar to what you get with Google Docs.

IWant iOS 6 beta on my devices today, my developer account expired on the 6th :-/
A mountain lion release would be nice, new macs with USB 3.0, cheaper thunderbolt accessories, document syncing through iCloud on the computer, everything needs to be fluid, iPhone to iPad to pc. Im so excited I could barely sleep.

I want quicker boot/shutdown, easier to manage preference files, get rid of dashboard & launch pad, easier to organize app windows between screens in mission control, revamp idea behind dock, notifacation system idea is A+.
