  • New iOS 7 Concept Shows Off a Cool New Lock Screen Format


    With iOS 7 around the corner, many are anticipating the changes that could arise from Apple’s Jonathan Ive overseeing iOS instead of the previous Scott Forstall. This new iOS 7 concept by a third-party designer attempts to re-create the lock screen experience in iOS. Check it out!

    This concept makes the lock screen much more usable by adding functionality to the lock screen that well outdoes what we have available to us in iOS 6.

    For one, the appearance of notifications on the lock screen are completely different from what we have now, and it comes with a quick reply feature right from the lock screen so that we don’t have to unlock our iOS device and open the corresponding application to respond to the notification.

    Another big detail of this concept is the lock screen clock, which instead of Apple’s usual straight glossy glass, is now a matte disk that the user can pull down on to reveal widgets that look similar to those in the Google Search application's Google Now. The widgets include those for Calendar, Maps, and Weather upon others. The widgets are easily dismissed by swiping on them.

    The lock screen’s slide to unlock bar is also a lot more simplistic in this concept. This concept does away with the slider knob and the glossy glass slide to unlock interface to make a flat slide to unlock strip that the user can swipe on instead.

    I’m not sure about the likelihood of all these features coming to pass, but they sure do look cool!

My most useful app in my jailbroken iPhone is CleverPin which automatically disables the lockscreen password when you're using a trusted Wi-Fi network. This alone makes the lockscreen easy to use and no need for these gimmicks at home or work. Elsewhere, I want the thing locked!

      The non-flat design of iOS is based on OS X, so I don't see why everyone thinks Johnny Ive will just change iOS to something like this and destroy the consistency between the two.

      Are you worried about people seeing your music or something? I don't get it.

      Yeah? Well "Thomas Birthday" is missing an apostrophe.

      The people making these videos think they are so professional an yet they make such silly mistakes, often in the concept itself.

      Sorry that was a little confusing, have access to all music, and partial access to like the camera app (how it is now) quick reply for only new messages etc. but keep most things hidden. Unless apple wants to take it a step further and if you have a passcode only display non essential information. If you do not have a passcode, be able to access everything from the lock screen. Although that's a whole lot of extra coding involved and likely a waste of time in there minds

      I don't know why all you people are whining about these concepts.

      Yeah, sure, Apple will implement NONE of them...BUT...it gives a lot for the Jailbreak community to think about. I think the Jailbreak community is being subconsciously targeted by these "concepts".
