iOS 7 concept shows that change is good

multitasking concept we saw, because it didn't feel like an Apple design. It felt like the BlackBerry 10/MeeGo multitasking pasted into iOS. It's also what we really enjoyed about the iOS widget concept we saw way back (that led to the designer being hired by Apple). That felt like an Apple implementation.One of the keys to a quality concept render in our opinion is keeping the concept in the same spirit as the company that makes the real life product. That was one thing that disappointed us about the recent
And, that's what impresses us about this iOS 7 concept from Simply Zesty. Certain elements were obviously lifted from other sources. For example, the weather widget is just the Eye in the Sky weather from Android, some of the color and design looks inspired by the Google Play Store, and the lockscreen feels a bit like Windows Phone with the popup menu. But, overall, it feels like a product that Apple could actually release. The widgets are hidden in the notification tray, the homescreens still look like iOS, and while certain items are similar to other platforms, there is just enough change to seem like an Apple product.

At the end when they showed the current iOS vs the concept, the current iOS looked better. The concept over did the flatness.

I think the old one looks better and more cleaner.

Does anyone else think it feels a lot like Windows Phone? I agree that they took the "Flat" design a bit too far. I think Ive meant that he was looking for iOS to not vary so much in look and feel (Find a Friend vs. Game Center vs. iCal). I like it, but if this is what iOS was going to be, I'd rather stick to what it is now...

This actually looks incredible. I understand that every feature here is already available on Android devices, but if you mix Android features with Apples name as shown in the video above, very good things will happen. Hopefully this concept will become a reality.

Great concept! This flat iOS 7 really matches the iPhone's beauty...

If this beautiful concept turns out to be true, I'm gonna sell my android for the 5S!

Why is this article hyping something that isn't real and won't look anything like it at all when it's released. Why are the people getting excited over it either?

Good lord imagine the battery life on this thing. Considering Apple barely increases it's battery between phones I'm hard pressed to see anything like this happening. I mean don't get me wrong this looks amazing but to sacrifice the already sub par battery life of the current iPhone this would be bad.

Dont see where the battery life on the iPhone 5 is "subpar". I get excellent battery life. I get over a day on a single charge, but everyone does use their phones differently and have different usage patterns. But to say its to say the battery life is subpar is a bit off, its quite comparable to other flagship phones on the market, and it has excellent stand by time. Currently my phone showing Standby 1day 7 hrs, and Usage 4 hrs 1 min and battery 38%. I have screen shots showing Standby 1 day 3 hrs, and Usage 4hrs 14 mins and battery at 26%, one showing Standby 4 hrs 9 mins and Usage 3 mins batt at 100%, and finally Standby 20 hrs 19 mins and Usage 7 hrs 10 mins and batt at 3%, so i dont consider the battery life "subpar".
