You can tell we’re getting closer and closer to WWDC 2013, because the concept videos for the next version of iOS seem to be popping up every day. This latest video shows off a new way to toggle settings, kill apps, open folders, and check notifications. It’s a pretty impressive video, but the features don’t seem to be very practical for real world usage if you ask me.
You be the judge. What feature from this video would you like to see in the final build of iOS7?

  • Looks pretty good, I hope Apple actually takes a look at these concepts

    • I think Apple considers all concept videos as well as Cydia tweaks.

      • Damian W


      • I’m pretty sure they do! Just look at jailbreak tweaks from the past and current iOS features and you’ll see what I mean

      • Damian W

        They copy simple and obvious features that should be available from the beginning. But they would never just copy the whole concept for iOS like in these videos.

      • Except I wouldn’t call it copying nor would I call it innovating. Maybe something in between copying and innovating perhaps similar to inspiration…

      • Liam Mulcahy

    Yes there are changes – But Apple will need to majorly change the UI. I think we are going to see Mac meets the iphone/ipad/ipod where before the ios was brought to the mac

    • yes its time to merge MAC and IOS..

      • Liam Mulcahy

        That would be great

  • kevin butler

    Yet, nothing near Android.

    • leave Android fanboy

      • kevin butler

        Who said I’m an Android fanboy? I own an iPad 4. Been with iOS longer than I had with Android.

      • Damian W

        If so you should not make a comment like the previous one. Android is disorganized mess full of adware.

      • kevin butler

        How exactly? It’s more functional then iOS.

      • Damian W

        Having more functions does not prove anything. Sure you can do more things, but it takes time and some learning skill to make any sense of the messy options. On top of this, the UI is just ugly and gives me a feeling of chaos. There are so many options everywhere I go to that at some point I just dont want to see them anymore.

        My point is, it all adds up: colors, fonts, sizes of icons and many others things. They give me the impression that Android is made by many people with different idea of how the system should look like. It is the system with great capabilities but they are not presented in the proper way, therefore it does not look clean and attractive as iOS.

      • kevin butler

        I don’t understand how it’s messy and cluttered. All it is is iOS with a customizable desktop basically.

      • Damian W

        This is where you missing the point. It is NOT iOS. It is very far away from being iOS. Sure it tries to imitate it, and the latest galaxy s3/4 are very good at it. Overall, even simple animations on android seem to be jerky. I just remember when one apple employee compared apple to Microsoft. He said in one year working for apple he spent more time discussing fonts and its color than in 20 years while working for Microsoft.

    • Why are you here?

      • kevin butler

        Why am I here? I love iOS. I own an iPad 4. Great site for tweaks.

    • That’s the whole point!

      We don’t want our iOS devices to be like an android. 😉

  • kinda stupid…….

  • Zorvage


    • In the video, the time was tapped on in the status bar on the homepage. You can configure this with Activator: At Home Screen -> Status Bar, Single Tap
      ->System applications, Clock

      • RyanFoley

        I think he meant it’s time for some new tweaks, not a tweak for the status bar clock tap

      • But then touching any part of the status bar would open clocks and that sucks. I actually like everything I saw in the video except the folder animation and the long loading of the closing apps. Probably a long hold so you won’t accidentally close all apps but not that long

      • You can specify exactly where on the status bar you tap using Activator; left, middle or right. You can also assign commands to tap and hold and double tap.

  • Some are pretty cool, like that close all apps and switching to Wifi and LTE thing.

  • Lol, what if ios 7 UI will not change and will be the same?

    • Bazinga!

    • That would be very dissapointing…just like iPhone 5 and iOS 6 were…

      • Liam Mulcahy

        The iPhone 5 was good but iOS 6 not

      • Ahmadjoon

        both of them are extremely great, dude!

      • yeah, iP5 is good, but most people expected brand new design, and they just made it taller with different backplate. but iOS6 wasn`t good you`re right.

      • specs wise iPhone 5 is fantastic but yeat the look is dry and its slightly too small

    • i will not be surprised at all

    • Liam Mulcahy

      Surprise, surprise

    • Not true. Ive is part of the design team for iOS 7.

  • Looks ok, bit overanimated. And folder animation would take too long if you want to open an app quickly.

  • I think there awesome features, and would use all of’em

  • Joe Bobbins

    It looks okay, pretty cool.

  • Mr_Russ1an

    I don’t think this would be good. Apple would never stray away from what is has right now.

    • I don’t think that they would never stray away (especially with Ive in control now) but they won’t implement any of these things cause it will “confuse” basic users.

      • Mr_Russ1an

        Yep it would be like Android with all of those weird animations.

  • A lot of flash with not to much functionality.
    I can just see the tech support calls-
    “why does my airplane mode always turn on?!?”
    “Did you accidentally tap the status bar again?”

    • Z3r0ViP

      He’s probably never gonna be able to call tech cuz of that airplane mode lol

  • bw00ds

    Nothing new that a tweak couldn’t take care of. Close all apps? We can already do that with jb and you don’t have to hold your finger down until it’s done, either. The only thing that looked new and innovative-ish was pulling down the gmail icons for your emails. But when you think about it, how practical is that?

  • Chuck Lemire

    The folders are a cool animation.

  • Like it!

  • George Yfantopoulos

    This is too epic, at least i hope these tweaks come out :3

  • That was awesome

  • horrible

  • personally i found this concept much better than the previous ones..

  • If it takes 5+ seconds to kill all background apps, shoot me now.

  • bigzjoseph

    is this for real

  • Joe Bobbins

    what does WWDC stand for?

    • worldwide developers conference

    • Worldwide Developer Conference/Convention I think…

    • RyanFoley

      Worldwide Developer Conference (and no, not Jailbreak Devs, App Store Devs)

  • A bad one

  • Ben

    The phone is a lot bigger than that hand. Out of scale.

  • Michael Edwards

    That was horrible!

  • Don’t like this at all.

  • Liam Mulcahy

    I love it but some of the animations and features seem time wasting or useless

  • what time iso7 come out

  • Jeez, the “killing all the apps” is SO slow. I would be like, really?

  • Don’t you find all these fancy animations look good for the first ten minutes and then all you want it to do is get on with it, and just do what it says on the tin?

  • Looks amazing =D

  • Mark

    Really like unlocking animation…maybe a developer will make it soon…!

  • Guest

    I really like the way the folder opened. Super cool. I doubt if Apple’s gonna include it though.

  • There should be an animation for every thing!
    even the smallest

  • a more important question – whats the new default wallpaper going to be?

  • Aftr ios7 also anroid s btr den ios

  • Jonathan

    This looks so realistic! Very well done.

  • I like the pull down from an icon. Now that is very unique that I haven’t seen concepted before.

  • All I could see was Zephyr, Velox and Activator on a non-jailbroken iPhone…

  • The most practical feature in that video was the “kill all apps button”.

  • z8137

    My opinion on this design is that we all know the newer the OS the slower it is on older devices. With this concept I feel that if you were to try to launch the Clock app by tapping the status bar it wouldn’t be instant like in the video shown.

  • Anything has to better than stock iOS

  • Ryan

    why would it take so long to close all the apps? way too much useless animation

  • I could realistically see toggles being situated in the pull down ‘notification centre menu’ but not on the home screen. As for the Gmail app showing the latest inbox messages, a nice concept. But this wouldn’t happen with Apple let alone Google.

    Nice concept 🙂
