Although the iPhone and iOS have changed in a lot of aspects since their launch in 2007, one aspect remains the same: the home screen. It has remained a grid of square icons with a dock through each iteration of the iPhone and iOS.

Ever since Apple launched the iPhone, the Home screen has been made up of static icons. The furthest Apple has gone in making it dynamic is the Clock icon, which started displaying the real time in iOS 7.

Meanwhile, competing platforms like Android has widgets, and Windows Phone has tiles that display useful information right on the Home screen so that users don’t have to launch the app to see things like the current weather conditions etc.

Apple completely revamped how multitasking worked in iOS 7, but the way to bring up the switcher remained the same — double click Home button. A new iOS 8 concept imagines how the multitasking switcher and Control Center could be merged, with a simple swipe up from bottom gesture to bring it up.

The inability to respond to an iOS notification without leaving the current app is quite annoying, and while Apple has added Quick Reply to notifications on OS X Mavericks, but it hasn’t done something similar on iOS.
