Concept Video iOS 7 Hints at Possibilties

With the recent departure of Scott Forstall (former Senior VP of iOS Software Dev), Apple have subsequently replaced him with Jony Ive. With this change in management many people are hoping to see some major changes in the UI of iOS. Previous versions of Apple's mobile operation system have all had their ups and downs, but with a consistent cry from the public to change the notifications system and user interface.

Apple have also began fishing engineers out of their OS X department to work on iOS 7, which will probably be launch during Apple's annual WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference). With recent reports pointing to their corporate schedule falling behind, Apple is obviously pulling out all the stops to impress everyone in June.

In the mean time, some interesting concepts have started to appear, showcasing potential feature changes to the operating system. Most of these point towards enhanced lockscreens and handy widgets, gaining inspiration from different features already available to user through jailbreaks. The video below shows a designer F. Bianco showcasing some original and elegant solutions to user complaints. Feel free to check the video out, and give your opinion on what software changed you expect or would like to see from Apple.

    It's funny how someone made a somewhat better concept then iOS 6 all by theirselves, compared to a company with billion dollars.

    5... 4... 3... 2... 1... Girding loins for negative Android comments... (Though some can me one chuckle)

    I wonder why they post Apple News on this site? It brings the ire of the 'Droid fanboys

    Too bad no one's doing that for Android :( There are quite a few things that would be nice to see in Key Lime Pie...

    ...hmm a sliding quick app drawer from lock screen? Android has had that feature since ICS... Hardly a innovative concept apple...more like a straight copy from android...

    At least apple does things on ALL their devices, unlike android where what device you own determines how
    little or how much your laggy apps will crash. However all those force closes keep you from taxing ANY android device's shitty battery life.

    Features like what was shown in the video would be great. All I know is they better do SOMETHING or I'm jumping ship to the GS4 or something similar.

    Riiight....

    sundragonToo bad no one's doing that for Android There are quite a few things that would be nice to see in Key Lime Pie...Sent from my Nexus 7Which things are you referring to? AFAIK, app drawers and sliding notification bars with access to settings are old news. People have been pointing that out for a long time, and all I see here is a rendering attempt to make iOS a bit more functional, like Android already is. Sorry if you feel these are negative comments, but it's just the truth exposed.
