As the release of Windows Phone 8.1 is nearing, there are some ‘wish lists’ of sorts. The author of this article hits it right on the head. Yes, it’s taking some of the ideas from the iPhone and iOS, but they are pretty common in other devices, but lacking on the Windows Phone. Do Not Disturb is one feature I’d really love to see added to the OS. I use it constantly on my iDevices, and it’s great. My wife, on the other hand, has an app that reminds her (and me) in the wee hours of the morning. That app got deleted.
Though Windows Phone 8.1 should certainly borrow a few features from other Windows operating systems, it would also be a good idea for Microsoft to borrow a few features from the world’s second most-popular operating system: iOS, the software that powers Apple’s iPhone.
