We’ve certainly seen a lot of iOS concepts in the past few months trying to imagine how Jony Ive’s “flat design” might influence iOS 7. A new iOS 7 concept video incorporates these flat UI elements along with a Google Now-like lock screen to imagine how iOS 7 might look like.
Google Now, if you’re not familiar, presents the “right information” like weather, traffic etc. at the right time in a scrollable list of cards. The concept uses a similar interface for widgets like weather, calendar and directions. These cards can be swiped to the left or right if not needed, again similar to Google Now.
It also borrows the Chat Heads interface pioneered by Facebook to show message alerts, and features a quick reply field to let you reply right from the lock screen instead of going to Messages.app.
Here’s the concept video:
