6 years later and still a clock bar on the lock screen? Really? - How about weather, rss, stocks (glance lock screen info) - So many LS tweaks!
1. Intelliscreen X
4. Hands-Free Control
8. Firewall IP (and PMP) - yes, because sometimes "legitimate" apps try to make off with location, contact, sms, email, music collection info.
And these aren't fluffy cosmetic theme changes either but real world functionality that people use. Remember, these are things that the iPhone does now but of course needs to be jail-broken. So haven't even begun to touch on how Apple can Ape some of the functionality that new high end phones are putting out now. And hey, they are not above "borrowing" either (i.e. NC center)...
So, just remember, the Roman Empire was mighty once too...

- Quick reply. You can reply to a text without exiting your current app.
- Quick compose. Pop up the SMS box to send a text, without going into the app.
- Contact pictures.
- Delay texts (I like to set to 2 seconds to give me time to cancel if I see a spelling mistake)
- Quick access buttons to call or facetime the sender when you receive a text from them.
Quicker access to stuff like Bluetooth would be helpful too. Just like NCSettings.

Oh my god another one! Alright first off, software is NOT , is NAWT going to matter to the average consumer that buys these phones! All the god damn companies come out to apple and ALL they say is, our OS is better than yours!! WHO CARES?! Most of the people that buy iPhones aren't going to be paying ANY attention to the software or how they use it! And second, just because the software has more "tweaks" doesn't mean you gotta go RUSH out and buy it! There all smartphones get over it! If your to stupid of a wank bag to stare at the OS all day then get your self a different phone! And please for GOD sake don't bring in hardware! Apples i5's speed isn't just on paper, you can see it. If you've had a i4 you can see a big difference in speed from the two, which is great! On my dads note 2 with 2 GB Memory and a quad core 1.8 GHz you can't see a difference between i5 and the note 2! I did a very accurate comparison between the two, you can't see it! Samsung has it on paper but you can't exactly see it. When I heard of the components and tried it, I was very disappointed. I was not with the i5 because you can see the difference in opening app ect! So don't come out and say there outdated in software and hardware because again first off, who gives a ****. Second, once you jailbreak an iDevice, your android and *******...jelly bean *** farts 3.173 is DESTROYED. You customize it so much more on iOS once jailbroken. Listen, in not an android hater, I actually like there phones! I do! People just like me, get angry at those android FAN boys that come out and say how there OS is better! Who cares! WHO...CARES.

Did u completely miss out on the app store, the retina display, siri and other major updates that apple has blessed the world with?
I mean i would keep my faith in the company that did all that rather than the one which can make videos pause by looking away.
Sure a little customization doesnt hurt anyone and i am totally with u that apple needs to open up a bit.
But too much of it will be confusing for the average user. Imagine having all of the cydia tweaks installed on your phone because everyone wants a different type of customization. But yes, i do feel that a few of the good ones like zephyr or nc settings should be inbuilt.
Thats why apple's 1gb ram on i5 pretty much fcks most of the 2gb rams on other phones or the 1450mah apple battery lasts longer than most >2000 other phone's.
Other phone's should remember one thing. Specs are eventually just numbers which dont matter after the buyer purchases the phone. What matters is the after sales experience.
Like someone wise said, u dont need a big di ck to satisfy a woman. Also, having a big di ck is no guarantee that the woman will get satisfied. Apple's specs vs the specs on other phones is the biggest example of this.

Isn't bb10 outdated too?? After all long have bb play book owners waited to get the update! Personally a small bit of truth to what he says but then for a company that's fighting for survival he might want to pay more attention to its recovery

This coming from the Chief of a company that's TRYING to make a comeback with BB 10......Windows came into the smartphone game a bit late and their phones aren't doing that great. What does BB think they're going to do? Change the whole industry and push Apple and the iPhone out?? Lol!! This guy is a moron!

Also, I agree that QNX is a strong OS and that it has a good amount of superior functionality to iOS. Apple doesn't have to reinvent the wheel, but I think they can work a little harder to add tweaks like SBSettings, Activator, Zephyr, true multitasking, or simple widgets. These types of enhancements should be incremental updates (and arguably fundamental in the iOS design), not 5.0 to 6.0. Further, the smartphone market is like the stock market, as past performance is not indicative of future performance. A dominant manufacturer can be wiped off the surface if they don't stay ahead of others, rather than maintaining their market position.

UI is a little dull ... Mind you we can tweak the piss out of it, or even design our own.
But blackberry is calling the kettle black there.
They talking **** now that they "FINALLY" put out the z10... Lol
Couple months earlier and they couldn't open their mouths... With the 100 dozen exact same phones for the last 10years.
Also I live 20min from Blackberry in Waterloo lol. And I admit they suck.

Its been half a decade, and we barely have anything new on the user interface.The truth is the only reasons i buy and apple product is;because I can jailbreak it, make it better by implementing the mods I like, and because of the app store other than that nothing really wows me about apple anymore. as an apple fan i admit this with sadness

i agree iOS is outdated and dull and boring cant wait to switch from ip5 to android

Jailbroken, The Iphone any version is a hard nut to crack. What apple lacks in the innovation department the Jailbreak community makes up. Traded my iphone one for a 4s. Looks like its going to be a while before I get rid of this puppy...And I so wanted the SG4 to equal the physical build of the iphone 4s. Alas it's not to be, especially since the screen got even bigger. The z10 from all reports is a good phone but I wouldn't trade my 4s in for it.

Know why I buy apple products and will continue too? Because they last a long time, great customer service and the ui is simple, clean, and fast. I have owned every iPhone since the 2G and I have sold every one of them on eBay unlocked for more than what I paid for them after using the device for a year or more. They are well designed and quality products. And, if I want to customize them I jailbreak, like I have since long before Cydia and before Installer.

Sorry, but I can't disagree with this guy.
Why aren't Apple writing funkier apps in-house ?
They can retain the depth at which external app-devs are allowed OS access while writing rootier stuff themselves.
Granted, there is a risk that it MAY compromise iOS 'just working' and while there's nothing like testing in the wild, they can surely invest in some pretty robust testing themselves.
Hell, it would lead to an even more robust iOS.
Given the ground they've lost over the last 2-3 years, it's surely better to take that risk than haemorrhage at the rate they currently are ... because the rate of Android hard and software development continues to pick up apace.
Will Apple be the next Nokia ?
Steve Jobs did some great things - but his vision came at the cost of some intrinsic lack of commerciality, which is now really beginning to bite deep into the Apple.
Wake up and smell the coffee, Apple!
It also seems to me that JB development is no longer funky.
Look at all the apps that have been abandoned since iOS 4.x - some of the really fundamental ones (even open source) haven't even been update to iOS 5 (think Backgrounder).
Apple's lack of genuine commercial nouse is turning the iPhone into yesterday's fashion.
But I guess like most organisations at the top, it's gotten fat and comfortable - and has just been resting on its laurels too long.
