Interested to hear what everyone is looking forward to at WWDC? Of course, iOS 6, but what features are hoping will be part of the update. Looking forward to new Macs? Apple TV getting apps or some other crazy rumor becoming truth?

iOS 6 is the biggie for me.I'm interested to to how much (or little) they change the OS.
I'll probably never own a Mac, (Too institutionalized by Windows now) and probably won't be upgrading to the new iPhone (when it's released) if the 4" 16:9 widescreen rumors are true.

I know Siri doesn't always work, but it'll certainly be welcomed on my iPad 3.

I'd personally like a new GUI/UI of the App Store. With a try befor you buy feature, is that too much to ask?

The Maps.app definitely needs an overhaul, I'm not bothered about 3D mapping or anything fancy. Being able to navigate in a Sat-Nav like style would be great. I hope they don't drop Google maps either.

Full screen option for Safari even if we get a bigger screen on the next iPhone I still want to the URL and search bar to vanish. Full screen in all apps would be a nice option as well.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, toggles in Notification Center.

Custom keyboard layouts i.e five-rows.

Removable memory?

iPhoto.app should have been built into the Photo's.app.

VoIP between iOS devices. This alone would be worth losing my jailbreak permanently for. It would have better clarity than a regular phone call, utilize data (which means costs the same for international iOS VoIP calls), and if enough people have iPhones, then I can finally cut my Unlimited US & Canada texting/voice plan down to save some money.

They could call it, 'iSpeak' a variant of iMessage.

VoIP would be great, I know there are apps like Skype but having it as native feature would be awesome. We have a FaceTime, though. Suppose FaceTime could easily support voice and/or video with voice.

Faster is always a must for me.
Better sync options for all devices (cloud functions I guess)
With the new mapping I hope there will be an integrated GPS Navigation system and build in updates
More Siri functions (specially opening Apps)
Better/faster camera and more edit options
Better sound quality (per my hubby)

Zephyr app switcher would be a nice little addition to iOS. Activator actions built-into OS a whole would be outstanding, but I can't see Apple giving us that type of control.

Maybe some interactive/video wallpapers for weather, one of the main things I like about Android.

Please give us customization abilities. Colors. Tones. Removal of the lockscreen clock Etc.
Would love to see a bitesms aspect come to messages in the quick reply and what not.
Would love to see more interfacing between Apple and other apps. You hear a song on pandora or songza and u can hit a button and bam you are buying it from iTunes.

That's already possible. iHeart Radio gives the option to purchase the current song playing.
