Last Month’s Round Table Question:

What would you like to see at WWDC?

@mario512 - All I can come up with is better Siri

@michaelpcouto - how about multiple caller FaceTime? FB Messenger app does a great job with that.

@valcox75 - I truly miss the old notification on/off button.  I wish they’d bring that back

@5ytix - I would love to see the notifications grouped by apps with the ability to action each notification from right there without unlocking the phone.  Notifications need to be revamped.

@jjb70 - bundled notifications

@gr36 - notifications grouped.  Workflow from the share sheet. Deep linking in files app

@jk51799 - the ability to place icons wherever the hell i feel like on the home screen.
