iOS 7: What it needs, and what it won't be getting in video

In this video we look at the features iOS 7 desperately needs -- and the changes that Apple probably won't bother with.


Which features does iOS 7 desperately need, and which will Apple probably not bother with? That's the subject of the video you can see above, so click play to see what we anticipate from the next iteration of iOS.

What would a Jony Ive-led redesign look like? Will we get a kids' mode to stop younglings blowing your hard-won cash on Smurfberries ? And is the power to change default apps a plausible reality -- or just wishful thinking?

We'll be tackling these features and more, so hit play before any more seconds pass without you knowing more about iOS 7.

Apple is expected to debut the seventh version of its mobile operating system at its WWDC conference, which kicks off on 10 June . That's only a few weeks to wait, folks!

What do you want to see in iOS 7? Which features do you think Apple will opt for, and which ones don't stand a chance? Watch the video, and let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook wall.
