Control Center introduced in 2013 as part of iOS 7, is one of my favorite and most used iOS features.

But one of its most obvious limitations is the limited number of toggles and quick launch app shortcuts, and the lack of ability to customize it.

The Notification Center in iOS is still incredibly basic. Apple has made some excellent improvements to the Today view, but the Notifications side leaves a lot to be desired. A new concept video below demonstrates some of the things Apple could do to change this in iOS 9.

Apple released the Apple Watch SDK, dubbed WatchKit, to developers a few weeks back with iOS 8.2 beta. The SDK lets developers build Glances, Actionable Notifications, and WatchKit apps, with full blown native Watch apps coming in 2015.

Although the iPhone and iOS have changed in a lot of aspects since their launch in 2007, one aspect remains the same: the home screen. It has remained a grid of square icons with a dock through each iteration of the iPhone and iOS.

Ever since Apple launched the iPhone, the Home screen has been made up of static icons. The furthest Apple has gone in making it dynamic is the Clock icon, which started displaying the real time in iOS 7.

Meanwhile, competing platforms like Android has widgets, and Windows Phone has tiles that display useful information right on the Home screen so that users don’t have to launch the app to see things like the current weather conditions etc.
