We all have something that we want Apple to implement into iOS. Most of the things we want wonít see the light of day because thatís just the way Apple rolls. On the other hand, the jailbreak community is very good at giving iOS users what they want, like the things demonstrated in this iOS 7 concept video:

This concept video shows off some really neat ideas that we can only wish Apple will take notes from, but more likely, it will spark ideas for the jailbreak community. The first idea the video shows off is a new unlock animation and new folder implementation, which are fun, bounce, roll, and are not so boring.
You will also see how Notifications are handled directly from the application icons themselves, allowing the user to drag down to see the notifications within. When the user has seen the notifications within the application, the application icon badge turns from red to light blue.
The video goes on to show us Zephyr-like functionality, and a brand new App Switcher interface that includes a close all applications button that the user holds down until the progress bar reaches the other end of the screen. Most people like being able to close out of all the applications suspended in the deviceís memory for the peace of mind, but since memory is handled automatically by iOS (whether itís done well or not), this isnít really a necessary feature Ė although it does look cool.
The video also demonstrates Status Bar toggles, which are used by tapping on elements in the Status Bar, which as the LTE toggle to switch to Wi-Fi and vice-versa, or tapping on the carrier name to enable Airplane Mode. Tapping on the time reveals the clock application, which would be a handy way to set alarms or see world times.
I think it would be awesome to have all of these features on my iOS devices. How do you feel about the features demonstrated in the video and what would you like to see in iOS 7?
