Here are a few of mine:
  • How many times have you had to call Comcast, DirecTV, or another company and have had to enter your account number into their interactive voice response (IVR) system using the keypad in the Phone app? It would be nice if there were an account number field in Contacts (which becomes visible only if a contact’s Company checkbox is ticked) and a small button on the keypad that a user could tap and have the iPhone “type” in the account number automatically. I usually store my account number for a given company in the Notes field, which at the very least saves me having to get a copy of my bill in my hand, but adding the ability for iOS to “type” that number in would be fantastic.
    • For those companies that have speech recognition throughout their IVR, it would be nice if Siri could pop into the middle of the “conversation” and speak the account number at the tap of a button.
  • Allow Low Power Mode and Night Shift to be enabled at the same time.
  • Night Shift could benefit from a schedule for each individual day of the week. Some people don’t go to bed at the same time every night. For example, they might go out on Friday and Saturday nights, and having Night Shift kick in when you’re out partying on a Friday night could be a bit of a nuisance. Sure, you can manually turn it off for those nights, but if Apple is shooting for ultimate user convenience, they could easily implement this.
I’ve submitted these ideas to Apple on their feedback page.

iOS 10 badly needs a “jump to date” function for its stock Calendar app.

The Calendar app, as implemented iOS 9.x.x, is not exactly future-friendly. If you need to schedule an event that happens to be in far off in the future, there's no way to jump to a specific date. You have to painstakingly scroll all the way to your desired date:

Hasn't Siri been able to do this for quite some time?

I can't help it if I have events to be scheduled in the distant future, man! :D
Oh my gosh. You should read John C. Wright's Count to the Eschaton Sequence books if you want to talk about scheduling in the distant future. You'd feel right at home brau :D

I "pioneered" the use of Google calendar in our home, a few years ago, because of the app Calengoo that has this very function plus many other customization options that are really nice to have for us as a family. Just being able to "invite others" to events like birthdays, anniversaries, trips, chores, et al, was a godsend.
YMMV
