Recently on Android.Appstorm, Nathaniel Mott wrote about What an iPhone User Expects from Ice Cream Sandwich, citing what he’s looking forward to and what has him worried as he patiently awaits his new Galaxy Nexus, a phone I claimed was the best on the market. In what seems to be a serendipitous coincidence, I recently received an iPhone 4S from my job, and I too have some expectations as I begin to use iOS more often.

Look, I love my iPhone, probably more than I should. Still, as I continue to use Android and Windows Phone, I can’t help but think that there are some things Apple could possibly “borrow” from the other two mobile operating systems.

Let’s take a look at a few of those things that I’d like to bring back to the iPhone.

And now with websites and mobile apps in heavy demand, it’s common to see so many new social networks focused on design rising into power. Website Dribbble is a product out of Salem, Mass. and features some very outstanding portfolios.

Ever since the iPhone was first released, all of the talk has been about who’s going to win the smartphone wars. Originally, it was a 3-horse race between RIM, Android and iOS (With Windows Mobile following along somewhere in there), but now it looks more and more like RIM is out of the picture, or will be soon. That’s unfortunate, because even though I’m no longer a BlackBerry user, it’s best for everybody that RIM stays in the game.

But why? Wouldn’t it be better for Apple to crush the competition and become the No. 1 OS in the land? No, not really. The more competitive the market is, the more innovations will come out for consumption, and the better we all will be as a result. Don’t believe me? Let’s hash it out after the break.

We are mere weeks away from the end of the first decade in this new millennium. This year has been a big one for Apple’s multi-touch product line with the arrival of the iPad, iPhone 4 and iOS 4. Along with these new technologies has come a seemingly endless barrage of great apps that keep us coming back for more.

Today we’ll take a look at some of our favorite apps that were either introduced or popular throughout the year. Some of them made the list as a result of huge sales while others are an important piece of iOS history. A big thanks to all of our Twitter followers who submitted votes for their favorite apps! You’ll definitely see many of your submissions included below.

Earlier this week, Apple released the long-awaited iOS 4.2.1 update. Though it added new functionality to all devices, the iPad was by far the subject of the greatest number of changes.

Namely, all the great features that iPhone users have been using for months (folders, multitasking, etc.) are now available on the iPad and working like a dream. Let’s take a look at the new and improved iPad experience!

iOS (formerly iPhone OS) has come a long way since its inception. What began as a simple system with only a few default apps and zero expansion opportunities is now a powerful application platform with desktop-like features such as copy and paste, global search and more.

Despite this notable progress, there’s always room for improvement. Today we’ll go over my personal wish list for the platform then ask for your input on features you’d like to see Apple implement in the future.

Today we’ll be discussing two very separate companies that have been recently thrown in together in headlines all over the web: Facebook and Apple. The two major topics of discussion might surprise you.

Is Facebook secretly working on a major iOS competitor? Is Apple positioning itself to buy Facebook? Below we’ll take a look at what’s fueling these two rumors and discuss whether or not they’re likely to come to fruition.

As Steve walked out on stage to face the crowd in the most recent Apple event, I was quite excited to hear what he had to say. I had no idea what to expect from Lion and didn’t want to even venture too many guesses so that there would be more awe than disappointment at the new features.

However, as Jobs began to discuss the premise of Lion, the gears in my head started to spin. He explained that Apple had learned quite a bit about both hardware and software while developing their line of iOS devices. Several new technologies had arisen that were so amazingly successful that they couldn’t wait to bring them “back to the Mac.”
