Apple’s iOS operating system powers all iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches sold to date. Suffice to say that’s a hell of a lot of devices, with Apple selling more of these products on a daily basis. However, in some ways iOS is starting to look and feel a little dated, especially when compared to the latest versions of Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows Phone.
Apple is set to release iOS 6, the latest version of its mobile operating system, this fall. We already know many of the incremental updates and added features due to arrive with iOS 6, but only some of these will answer calls from owners of Apple devices. In this week’s ‘We Ask You’ column we want to know what you personally would like to see happen with iOS 6.
This Week’s Question…
What Would You Really Like To See In iOS6?
When Apple originally unveiled its mobile operating system, first a product without a name, then ‘iPhone OS’, it was a revelation. But that was in 2007. Since then it’s been renamed iOS and successive versions have varied in their quality, some being very incremental in nature. Many people now think the core of iOS now needs an overhaul, a face-lift, a redesign that fixes or perfects some of the more-aged elements of the operating system.
So we want you, the average Apple fan on the street, to tell us what you’d really like to see in iOS 6. Is there a particular feature you feel is missing? Something you’ve seen Android or Windows Phone implement particularly well? Looking further into the future, do you think Apple should head back to the figurative drawing board and rework iOS from the ground up? Or is iOS still head and shoulders above the competition?
Whatever your thoughts are on the subject we want to hear them. You can pass them on to us in the comments section immediately below this post.
