Top 5 Wish List for iOS 5

Apple’s will kick off next Monday, June 6. As always, there is plenty of speculation about the announcements to be made at the 10am PST Jobs & Co. keynote. You can expect to hear about the next major revision of iOS- which if Apple hopes to keep an edge on Android’s growing market share, should come with a host of drastic improvements. Here is my Top 5 wish list for iOS 5 announcements at WWDC.

1) Wireless Data Syncing

This is definitely my #1 Android-envy feature. While having to plug in a USB cable in order to backup and sync data to my laptop is obviously not a huge deal, it would be nice if it “just worked.” Apple, while you’re at it, it would be nice if you could send debug builds to development devices in Xcode without plugging in. I won’t hold my breath on that one though…

Apple has already that they will be launching their iCloud service for WWDC. We already know that iCloud will probably allow users to access their music from the cloud, but it would nice if you could sync all app data too. Imagine taking a photo or video on your iPhone and it automagically syncs to your iPad.

2) Better Maps has been largely unchanged since its initial inception. While Apple has been reported to have bought several mapping-service companies such as and, I don’t really expect a Google-less any time soon. It would be nice to have bike directions and built-in turn-by-turn navigation finally.
