    The new OS should also go the extra mile and incorporate bus routes as well as walking routes on the map applications.

  6. iOS 8 do not disturb options
    iOS 7 do not disturb got improved features but with issues. iOS 7 DND enables user to silence notifications only when a device is locked.But it still retains only a single schedule though.

    It will also be exciting if a phone with iOS 8 is automatically able to switch to silent mode depending on the location that one is in or depending on calendar settings or schedule; to enable you to at least set one for weekdays and a separate one for weekends.

  7. Enhanced Facetime App
    Apple iOS 8 version will do much good if it will allow users get more friends together for a Group Facetime. Facetime currently supports a maximum of five callers at a time for group video. Apple needs to workout to increase this limit to allow video conferencing of more than 5 users.

    The new Facetime iOS 8 App should also be able to allocate Movies TV shows, music videos their own sections in a Videos app.

    For some users, the iOS 8 features wishlist includes guest account for children or anyone else that does not affect your settings and data.

  10. Change Default Apps
    The new OS should also give users the ability to delete default apps whenever they feel like and be able to install back stock Apps in a later.

    Mac OS X Mavericks, notifications are much more interactive compared to iOS 7, get a message and you can deal with it there and then, rather than leaving the app you are in. Clearing of notification is a process that can only be done for the entire lists of the notification with the current OS, iOS 8 should allow for the deletion of selected notifications instead of the entire list.

  14. Battery Alert Redesign
    Instead of relying for the irritating pop banner to indicate low battery, iOS 8 should basically use a low battery alert.

    There are scores of users who want the CoverFlow back on top of their wishlist. Additionally, another iTunes feature people want back is Album Art preview with ability to click and open it in full size.

    Choosing of a desired default browser should be left to the user instead of choosing safari for all users; this should also go for mail viewers.

  17. Data Monitoring App
