Watch this iOS 7 concept video
Apple is said to be behind on its redesign of iOS with iOS 7. The tech titan is far enough behind schedule that it has supposedly pulled people off of OS X 10.9 to work on the project. As we told you the other day, the changes are said to be so dramatic that those Apple executives given permission to carry a device testing the new software are using special polarizing filters that prevent the curious from spying on the new UI. So far, the buzz around the water cooler is that Jony Ive's new look for iOS is getting rave reviews from those who have seen it.

Meanwhile, designer F. Bianco posted an iOS 7 concept video that shows an enhanced lock screen with easy access to certain settings like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There are even widgets although they are not presented in the same manner as widgets are on Android. The new iOS concepts are shown twice in the video, once on an Apple iPhone and the second time on an Apple iPad.

Hopefully, with all the additional help working on iOS 7, we will see Apple introduce it this June at WWDC.

Concepts are not always real, and this video is not from Apple. The best thing is to wait for Apple introduce it this June.

That would be too logical and too reasonable.

And I guess you love this concept right, Mr. Mxyzptlk Troll ? :P

Of course he would. Then he could claim that all those things which Android has had for some time are revolutionary and Apple created them. Let's see - widgets, drop down toggles (added tothe already stolen drop down notifications), quick connect actions from the lock screen... all things I've had on my Android phones for years.

No Ted... Apple had drop down notifications, quad core processors, widgets, 2 gigs of ram, live wall papers, app drawers and 4 inch screens first. Man what the heck am I smoking.

I agree with you and every things like widgets, drop down toggles etc. you mentioned are on my android phones too. And Mxyzptlk can't change, he "overloved" Apple, and we can't blame him for an Apple fanboy, cuz there are many Sony fanboys, Samsung fanboys, Nokia fanboys etc. , but at least he must make it fair, not always Apple.....Apple....Apple......, why come to PhoneArena, if he only likes Apple? :/

P.S Only the designer posted this, not Apple. and the concept UI is boring.

"The best thing is to wait for Apple introduce it this June." If they 'introduce it this June', it will be a greater perfidious lash-up than iMaps was. It has previously taken at least 1 month to go from beta test to Golden Master for earlier versions of iOS (more like 2 months). Pulling engineers off of OSX 10.9 to work on iOS v. 7 doesn't sound like they are anywhere near a June release of iOS v. 7. Forstall isn't around to take the blame for software failures. They better get it right the first time, even if it means a delay into 2014 for iOS v. 7.

Plus, Alpha testing of iOS v. 7 hasn't even started. June is looking ever less realistic for a release month. Unless you were referring to June, 2014. ;-)

Not yet. This is only a concept from someone not affiliated with Apple. What it clearly shows is the longing for Android features iOS users have, and how far behind iOS has fallen.

Full of Android's features...

No that's innovation.

It's a concept video, relax and what Android features?

48. tedkord

Seriously? Widgets, drop down toggles, quick connect actions from the lockscreen. I didn't even watch the whole video, and literally every thing shown that I saw has been on Android for quite a while.

Apple should try to use those features in a unique, and partly innovative way, but they sure as heck better not try to act like they invented them. Androids taken things to such a level, coupled with wp8 innovative metro UI that's there's not much apple can do rite now. Even google is doing more refining then revolutionary things, BUT, google can get away with it...it's there stuff.

Hmm very interesting but just ehh, not enough to make me jump from android

Pretty good ideas I think, and most of them are realistic, the widgets would be a good addition, although I don't know how exactly they would be activated, maybe a double tap? Also the quick settings should be able to be activated from anywhere, not just the home screen, opening the settings would be just as quick sometimes

The widgets in this video remind me of a launcher replacement called Action Launcher Pro. Action Launcher Pro has widgets called shutters, which are normal icon but you swipe up and then its a widget, like on this video. But I haven't used Action Launcher Pro before through because I don't have a Android yet, so I don't know how good Action Launcher Pro's shutters are.

Only if Apple would take the advice people are giving them. Maybe then their os wouldn't be so goddamn boring and stale.

I'll take, "Things Apple Will Shamelessly Steal" for $600.

The best thing in this video is the music, The White Stripes for ever.
