It’s been just two months since iOS 12 was released, but people are already looking ahead to what Apple might do with the next iteration of its mobile operating system. MacWorld‘s Jason Cross has published his wishlist and I suspect there is much on there that TMO readers will agree with. It includes the introduction of dark mode as seen in macOS Mojave, an upgrade for Siri and a revamped camera. Cross would also like to see YouTube 4K and HDR video support, not to mention more flexibility and power in the iPad version. Here’s a bit of what he hopes comes next on  iOS:

Apple can do more, much more. The latest iPhones and iPad Pros sport processors, cameras, and sensors that are capable of incredible things, but iOS at times feels like its holding us back. In particular, the iPad Pro feels like it has everything it needs to be a complete laptop replacement—except an operating system that lets you do everything you need to do on a laptop.

    Forgot to add INCONSPICUOUS VOLUME SLIDER to the list. The HUD has to go. Several apps have already adopted this, just make it part of the OS, please!

    -Dark Mode
    -Ability to toggle off auto arrangement of home screen icons
    -More flexibility for widgets
    -Enhanced lock screen
    -Always on display for OLED screens
    -UI and icon theming (add theme category to App Store)

    My short list:
    1. The ability to control the volume of individual ring/text tones. I’ve created a few that are excessively loud.
    2. The ability to choose to have your phone return to the home screen after a set period of inactivity. (If the setting is available or if it already does this by default after a set time period I’ve missed it.)
    3. The ability to have the Camera app return to a default setting, again, depending on a set period of inactivity.
    4. Photos app – see #3 above. Sometimes it feels like I’m backing a trailer through a maze.
    5. The ability to have Location Services determine whether to show/not show text content on the lock screen. Don’t show them at work, show them otherwise, etc.
