These 4 iOS 9 concept videos propose some awesome changes
Five days from now, Apple is expected to announce a new major update to its iOS platform at WWDC 2015. Speculations are already running wild as to what the new software will bring to the table, but we obviously can't be certain until we see Tim Cook or another Apple top honcho gets up on stage and makes it official. This puts us in a position where everything and nothing is possible at the same time, and for as long as that's the case, we'll be making the most of it by exploring what outsiders think Apple should do with the new firmware in the form of concept videos.

Now, we probably don't need to say this, but we will anyway — these are unofficial concepts that are typically unlikely to move Apple designers enough to implement a proposed feature. At the same time, we have to give it to the folks behind the videos below: some nice ideas there! Whether we're talking about some extra customization options within Control Center, a dark theme for the UI that would suite night owls well, or even a more powerful lock screen, we found more than just a handful of features that we definitely liked, and that fit Apple's narrative fairly well.

Take a look, enjoy, and let us know which features caught your fancy in the comment section below.

The funny thing is that most of these features are already present on various Android phones. I have a lot of these imaginary features that iOS is sorely missing on my Galaxy devices. This just points out how dated iOS really is.

next os version will come with different icon colours and some options other manufacturers using for ages.

Nightmode wouldn't save battery on an IPS screen. Only on Amoled. And changing the colors of switches, I'm doubtful Apple would do this. Since the colors can represent information as well (green is on, red is an alert for example).
