    Here are my favorite iOS features:

    1. Do Not Disturb
    2. Siri
    3. Notifications center (ability to customize the alert style and having a centralized place to flip notifications from apps on or off without having to dig into settings menus within the app)

    1. Siri - She can do so much from making calls to writing messages
    2. Notifications center - Like Gamer said
    3. ICloud - I love talking photos with my 5 and love that I don't have to mess with moving cards around or looking for a cable to move my photos from phone to computer

    Apps. Most apps made for iOS are nice and optimized for it. Programmers bring their wares to iOS first (though it is happening less often)... Or the apps are better on iOS

    1. Updates happen directly from Apple, no provider involvement, thus no delays.

    2. No provider bloatware.

    3. All the apps that I need are available and work smoothly.

    4. The general "glitch free" operation.

    5. The built quality and the feel of the phone.

    Not to start another argument over what "your iOS device" means, but my favorite feature is it's ability to play audiobooks properly (with bookmark support).

    As I was fiddling with my phone while on a conference call with it, I discovered the option of being able to talk to each of the parties privately without affecting the conference call.

    I am not sure if all Smartphones today have this feature but I really find this useful.

    I'm having a hard time providing an answer to this one. Really have to concentrate on my favorite. Certainly photo sharing with all my Mac's, iPads, and phones is way up there...and projecting onto my Apple TV...without a flaw and little thought to make it happen. It just works.

    1. I guess I would say also the Apple Maps interface, esp in the big cities. Street signs pop up in large size, and color coded for the next turn. But most importantly is the 3D rendition that makes traveling the city very, very easy.

    Compared to my Garmin, I like that the Siri voice never tells me condescendingly 'rerouting'. Apple Maps just quietly changes course, and gives a second or two display..

    2. Hardware

    3. Retina screen, brightness, true colors, resolution and low reflection

    4. App performance

    5. and the biggie...battery management

    ICloud Tabs. Very useful for me. Can pick up what I was doing in another device easily.


    "iCloud synchronizes your open tabs in Safari across your Macs with OS X Mountain Lion installed and your devices with iOS 6. You can view any open tabs in Safari from all of your supported devices that have iCloud Safari preferences enabled. To use this feature, your Mac must have OS X Mountain Lion and Safari 6, and your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch must be using iOS 6."

    Touch ID on my 5S is now my favorite feature after the latest iOS 7.1.1 update.

    I'm very impressed with the fingerprint touch sensor on the iPhone 5S. Very, very useful

    I love the landscape mode feature on my iPhone 6 Plus, and having real tabs within Safari.

    My favorite has to be either Do Not Disturb or FingerTouch Security. I like my privacy - and like my security. Not that I have much to hide, mind you, just like the convenience of using my thumbprint to unlock my phone.

    I agree! I don't have an iPhone. But my iPod 5 and my iPad are a joy to use. :)

    Mine has to be the fingerprint touch, as well as automatic updates. Some other features is the wireless syncing that makes my phone maintenance (almost) automatic.

    The camera. By far the best phone camera I've had. In fact, when I was at the races last weekend, it did a much better job than my more expensive digital camera of taking pics of the cars as they crossed the start/finish line in front of me. I've always been frustrated trying to take good pics of the cars as they went by. Pretty much every pic I took with my iPhone 5 was perfect
