if this will happen... i think buying the next iPhone (iPhone 6? 5S?) with iOS 7.... apple might not be called stagnant and redundant... coz all the iOS version -- all the same!! nothing's new with its looks!

but if this will happen.. it will make the next iPhone/iPad/iPad mini worth to buy!

No offence to anyone, but after watching WP8 in action ,everything else looks outdated. It may not be the best, but yeah its great..!

Only missing S-Pen and the name iCopy and iSteal.
Pure innovation by Google, erhmm...Samsung...errrrr Apple it's. The only company that can make revolutionary devices with pure retina display experience. *cough* *cough*

Microsoft do it - Ugly! Just plain bad! Can't stand tiles!
Apple do it - innovation, so impressed! Best thing ever done!

Man, android already has exactly this.

Also, live tiles are completely generic looking

Ya we have to see it as an inspiration from Android. But apple does not believe in showing itself "inspired" by others.

Evolution is great ! but bragging about your evolution and terming it as revolution is not the right way. If apple does take ideas from other places ,its good for overall competition,but as we know apple will brag about its self proclaimed innovation.

Is it sarcasm? You people should really start marking sarcasm posts. Really hard to tell.

It would be better if Apple will just stick with the current iOS design as of the moment just add a few improvements but not live tiles or widgets alike.

More like it would be better if Apple just sticks with their "famous rows of icons." They gotta be too proud of their invention to ditch it and start thinking about copying other platforms.

Lol, it's just an artist's concept. This doesn't mean Apple is going to do this.

These are more like widgets. You can't interact with live tiles.

Would definitely update iOS into the present in mobile OS platforms.
The static grid of icons on multiple pages is old. Even Nokia Belle is more interesting than iOS right now, but a merger of widgets and live tiles would be great for multi-tasking on iOS.

Where's gallito and myx? Mark my words:

APPLE IS SECRETLY ENVYING ANDROID and they're going to take any measures to get closer.
