iOS 6.1.3, the so-called Jailbreak killer, is expected to be released within the month. But iOS 7 is already stirring some search engine action this early. There are obviously some big changes that Apple users are demanding from the Cupertino-based tech giant.
Here is a round-up of wish list entries found in tech blogs and forum sites for the iOS 7. Some users are pointing out seemingly simple wishes, such as a one-touch system for closing all running apps. Others are clamoring for a multi-user option for kids or guests.
1. Guest account. Apple devices are "extremely personal computers," notes TechRadar. But the tech site also points out, a guest account is useful for instances when users hand their devices to someone (or a child) even for a short bit.
2. Home screen revamp. In an open letter to Jony Ive (Senior Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple Inc.), PocketGamer UK laments, "Would the company collapse if it introduced a Home screen that scrolls vertically as well as horizontally?"
3. Changeable Siri voice. "It'd be great if you could choose the voice your device uses to speak," writes TechRadar.
4. Quick access to Settings. A quick and easy access to Settings on a locked screen is part of this blogger's iOS 7 wish list.
5. Camera app improvement. There seems to be thousands of photo editing apps available, but it's better if photo enthusiasts have a higher control in taking pictures. "Maybe Apple could add some kind of [exposure compensation] slider to let you add or subtract a little exposure here and there when the light is tricky," writes Chris Foreman to Ars Technica.
Listed above are only five of the iOS 7 wishes already making rounds across the internet. Let us know your wishes as we wait for the next iOS update. Apple could be listening.
