Concept video shows how Spotlight in iOS should work

By Cody Lee on Sep 17, 2012

Apple added the Spotlight search tool to iOS back in 2009, with version 3.0. The page, which can be accessed by swiping to the left of the Home screen, allows you to search through the content on your device.

While it’s a nice idea, the feature itself has long been criticized for its limited functionality. Compared to its counterpart in Mac OS X, Spotlight for iOS is pretty hindered. Perhaps this is how it should work… Read More


This is what AirDrop for iOS should look like

By Cody Lee on Jun 8, 2012

If you’ve ever used a Mac running OS X Lion, then there’s a good chance you’ve played with AirDrop. The drag-and-drop feature allows users to share content between computers on a common Wi-Fi network with understated ease.

It’s such a cool feature, in fact, that a lot of folks have wondered when Apple is going to bring it to iOS. Just imagine dragging and dropping files to your iPhone or iPad — it’d be awesome. Especially if it looked anything like this… Read More


Gorgeous iOS concept shows off dynamic icon badges and more

By Cody Lee on Jun 8, 2012

With WWDC coming up on Monday, there’s only a few days left to speculate on what new goodies Apple will unveil. We know for sure that iOS 6 is on the menu, but what new features will the update bring?

The consensus seems to be that, other than a number of revamped applications, Apple’s mobile OS will remain largely unchanged from its predecessor. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t dream big… Read More

As you know, iOS 6 will bring an all-new Maps app said to feature Apple’s own tiles and brand new in-house solution for breathtaking 3D view.

By Cody Lee on Jan 28, 2012

Digital wrist-wear has come a long way since calculator watches. Now there are products like the I’m Watch and multiple wearable cases that turn the iPod Shuffle into a high-tech ticker.

But if none of the current offerings are doing it for you, maybe this one will. The iWatch 2 is an iOS-compatible wristwatch that has enough features to make James Bond himself jealous… Read More


Multitasking Concept for the iPad Shows that iOS Still Doesn’t Have it Right

By Oliver Haslam on Sep 14, 2011

After we spent years begging Apple to finally add multitasking to iOS, the boffins in Cupertino relented, bringing the joys of multiple running apps to our iPhones and iPads. Well, sort of.

Apple’s implementation has many-a-geek arguing over whether it really is multitasking. Once you get past that little hiccup, it works surprisingly well. But could it be better?

The launch of iOS multitasking hasn’t stopped the creative types from showing us how they think multiple apps should be handled, and a new video caught our eye today, and we’re rather impressed… Read More


iPod Touch 3G Concept

By Guest Author on Jul 11, 2011

Over the past week or so, there have been rumors floating around about a 3G-Enabled iPod Touch coming later this fall. If this were happen, you would be able to use 3G data on your iPod Touch, for Facetime, iMessages, etc. You would also be able to use a VoIP app, such as Skype or Viber, to call people from your iPod Touch.

We took this concept to Photoshop, and we came up with the iPod Touch 3G. It looks exactly like the current iPod Touch, but has a black strip on the back. It also says “3G” in the menu bar. Along with that, it also features an integrated SIM card, as the next iPhone is rumored to have… Read More


iOS Notification Concept Based on the iPad 2 Smart Cover

By Alex Heath on Mar 11, 2011

It’s no secret that Apple’s system for notifications in iOS sucks. Many other mobile operating systems, like Google’s Android, use a more unobtrusive method for delivering new notifications.

Apple is definitely working on making the notification system in iOS better, but until then, we can only gawk at interesting concepts of what a complete iOS notification redesign would like like. The latest and greatest concept uses the iPad 2’s new Smart Cover
