We’ve seen a fair few iOS 7 concepts over the past weeks. Heck, we’ve even had a go at creating our own. But few have come close to the practicality and stylish design seen in the video above. Rafael Justino has just posted his idea of the perfect update to YouTube.
Among the changes are updated looks and features for some of the ever-present stock iOS apps like Clock, Weather and Compass. However, it’s the changes to Notification Center and Lock Screen which got me excited. Instead of having a whole list of updates beneath the particular app’s heading, each app gets its own drop-down menu within Notification Center. It makes for a much tidier and clutter-free look, but also means that you only need to see which notifications you actually want to. Slide down, and you get a ton of widgets. Love them or hate them, there’s clearly a section of society who can’t live without them. Adding them in Notification Center would certainly appease the few without annoying the others.
In the Lock Screen there are tons of changes too. It’s customizable in that it allows you to change the color of the background, and change its opacity as well as the color of the unlock “slider”. What I really liked was Justino added the ability to change app shortcuts. So instead of having camera as the default app when sliding upwards, you could have the Phone app, or Facebook for instance. While I doubt that Apple would ever implement something with so many security risks, I like the convenience of it nonetheless.
Let us know what you think of the concept in the comments below.
