You already know five things that I’d love to see in Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), but what about the next version of Apple’s iOS? Admittedly, it will only arrive with the iPhone 5 in 2011, but it’s never too early to start thinking, right?
1. A More Functional Lock Screen
We’re at iOS 4, and we’re still using the same lock screen that we had in the original version of the iPhone OS when the iPhone was first introduced to the world. It serves it’s purpose as a lock screen, but it becomes incredibly tedious when you have to unlock your phone before you can see how many messages or emails are waiting for you.
I’ve been using Element on a jailbroken iPhone for all my notifications, and to go back to a stock version of iOS is pretty painful where the lock screen is concerned. Apple could take a lot of cues from this app and implement them in a future lock screen.
