  • New Video Said to Show Rumored iOS 7 Running on an iPad


    Apple hasn’t released iOS 7 for the iPad, which has led to speculation about what the operating system will look like on a larger screen. Over the past weekend though, photos from iOS 7 simulator in Xcode 5 surfaced, demonstrating how several stock iOS apps may look like on Apple’s tablet and now ModMyi reader, August Aster, directed us to Russian-based YouTube user Rozetked who has released a video of what he claims is iOS 7 “alpha” running on an iPad. Those of you interested in watching the video can do so below:



    Rozetked doesn’t explain where the software came from nor how it was installed on the tablet, so there is no proof that the video depicts a bona fide version of iOS 7 running on the iPad. In fact, at one point, a crash displays the iOS 6 Apple loading icon rather than the flatter iOS 7 iteration, which means it could be an elaborately crafted rendering. Though the video’s legitimacy is questionable, it does offer a clearer picture of what iOS 7 might look like when installed on an iPad. Both the Notification Center and the Control Center appear in appropriate portions to the screen size and the Control Center lacks the Flashlight setting that was found in the simulated screenshots, instead offering iPad-specific options that include just AirDrop and AirPlay. In comparison, the iPhone Control Center offers a Flashlight along with quick access to the Clock, the Calculator, and the Camera.

    Along with displaying the Notification Center and the Control Center options on the iPad, the video also offers a look at several apps, including Music and Videos. Folder functionality and 2x app mode are also demonstrated with several stock app icons being identical to the iPhone versions. It’s unclear as of right now whether Apple plans to release iOS 7 on the iPad for developers, having chosen to instead focus its attention on the iPhone version of the operating system for now.

      How did the app close at 1:22? I couldn't understand what he was saying but maybe he said that the app crashes?

      Unfortunately, it does not. It's nearly the only thing left from my short list of jailbreak must-haves that hasn't been included in iOS7.

      Hoping it's included before the final release, but I wouldn't bet on it.

      Because it wasn't ready.

      If you read the article you'll know this is just some Russian guy with some sort of "alpha" version installed on his iPad.
