TiP Daily 5/24/13: iWatch concept, iOS 7 wish list, and more!

1. iWatch concept with Maps

This concept looks incredible! Personally, I think it’s the only iWatch concept I’ve seen that I believe could actually be a product Apple releases. At this point, most people agree that Apple is working on some sort of wearable tech, and this is the first thing that got me excited for it. As far as the software concept, bluetooth app cooperation is a great concept.

2. iOS 7 wish list

Of all the rumored iOS 7 features, I am most excited for the flatter redesign. Though, as far as minor features are concerned, I really hope Apple gives us a few more options in the Messages app. I really want to be able to give group messages a name (like BBM). I’d also like to be able to sort between group messages and one-on-one messages.

3. iOS 7 “black, white, and flat”

Like I said before, I can’t wait to see what Jony Ive has done with iOS. I love the OS, but it’s undeniable that it’s starting to look a bit tired. Graphically, iOS has basically remain unchanged since 2007, so it would be nice to see it updated and refreshed.

4. Refurb iPad prices drop

Apple really seems to be trying to move these refurbished iPads. I’ve never purchased a refurbished device from Apple, but I have gotten refurbished repair units when my iPhone broke, and they’ve always worked fine for me. At the newly lowered prices, it definitely seems like a good deal!

Question of the day: What do you feel about the rumored “flat” iOS 7 redesign? Sound off in the comments section below or on twitter @TiP_Jake.
