Windows Phone 8 Like iOS 7 Concept Shows Off Zen Simplicity [CONCEPT]

We have seen numerous concepts for iOS 7, so many that you are probably getting tired of hearing about them. Regardless, we are back today to share with you yet another concept, this time by the website

They have created a concept that is probably one of the best we have seen in a long time. Not only does it take into account the recent rumors of Apple making iOS more Windows Phone 8 like, but it still retains its enough of iOS’ simplicity so that it will be  familiar to regular iPhone users, not just the tech savvy users.

Lately there has been a lot of discussion surrounding how Apple can improve its stock applications. Although not all of the fruit company’s stock applications are horribly designed, there are some that are in need of a fresh coat of paint such as the Weather app. We have been hearing that Apple will strip its applications of their sheen and gloss, essentially removing all signs of skeuomorphism, but whether or not this will actually happen is debatable.

In the concept by SimplyZesty we see Apple’s applications in more of a simple light with their content and visuals front and centre, while having their extended functionality hidden until you need them.

The lock screen in this concept was improved by making it more visually appeal and adding new features such as displaying the weather and also the ability to launch other applications from an app drawer.


Perhaps the biggest change in iOS shown in this concept is Apple’s iconic app icons losing their rounded edges and instead becoming flatter with less sheen.

Then there is of course a customizable home screen where you can add widgets. Other than that Siri is depicted as being slightly modified with deeper integration throughout the operating system.

All in all this is probably the best  iOS 7 concept we have seen yet and if iOS 7 ended up being similar it would make a lot of people happy. Let us know what you think of it in the comments section below.

    Sorry, not impressed. Doesn’t seem fluid at all. Windows 8 might be simple.but if you used it, navigation sucks and it isn’t as fluid efficient in navigating. So it pretty much sucks

    I’m very impressed. Very nice concept

  • craig84

    Wow! One of the best concepts I’ve seen! I was worried when the news of Jony Ive saying iOS 7 was going to be “very, very flat” came out… but now I’m actually excited and hopeful again!

    The only think I liked out of this video was the fresh new lockscreen! The iPhone lockscreen really does need an update! I do hope Apple does bring something like that to iOS 7 but also I do hope they keep the simplicity they have of the lockscreen now. Nothing crazy and to my opinion ridiculous like Android would do just simple but a little more “pizazz” in lack of better words. But really square icons?!?! Apple would never. Square icons remind me of a Samsung, Windows, or Android phone.. That makes me want to throw up. There is a reason why WE STICK WITH APPLE. -Dustin

    I really don’t like the new iOS 7…All I can say is “There better be someone that can make a theme that can revert back to the original iOS”
