    So I wasn't allowed to post YouTube links apparently so here are some screenshots instead....

    For a class we have to come up with either a new product for a company or re-work a product for future release... So I chose to design iOS6 for the iPhone (might add iPad in later).

    So anyways, here are some of the new features and/or updates I have come up with so far, I hope you like. If you have any ideas please let me know and I will create a screenshot of what that might look like :D

    New Task Bar
    The new task bar has been redesigned to have a more consistent look throughout iOS and now includes the Notification icon that will glow a different color when notifications are available in the notification bar. Nothing too major here.

    New Notification Gesture
    Instead of swiping from the top of the screen down, like you currently would in iOS, the new gesture is from the far right of the screen to the left (like it is in Mountain Lion now). This will create a uniform feel and look between iOS and OS X... It also plays into the next feature I have added...

    Mission Control
    iPhones are currently being used with more apps than they could have ever been imagined to do when iOS was first created, so we have decided to blend OS X into iOS with Mission Control. With a gesture from the far left of the screen to the right you can access the Mission Control window which allows you too see what apps you are running with an actual preview window of the app.

    Launchpad
    People are looking to access apps on their iOS devices quicker than they currently can so we made it easier. By pinching with 2 fingers and your thumb you will see Launchpad (an exact replica of your Homescreen).

    New Maps App
    Finally, a real navigation app on your iOS device. This new application features 3d technology that Apple gained access to when it acquired C3 Technologies late last year. Get voice navigation with Standard, 3D, or Hybrid maps and have all the same great features that can currently be found in Maps.

    New Music App
    We have redesigned the Music App to introduce a more unified interface between the iPad and iPhone.

    New Phone App
    We have redesigned the Phone App to give you a better, more user friendly interface that is also more consistent across iOS and OS X devices.

    Notifications WON'T happen.

    Mission control... Maybe.

    I started making the video and posted what I had so far in the forums but it got removed because of 'self promotion'. :mad:

    Your title is mis-leading, that's why. if you mentioned a project for school or whatever it would be more ok.

    I do like the ideas though, however UNlikely they are ;)

    The thread I had wasn't misleading at all... apparently you just can't post videos to your own youtube channel. :p

    Thanks though! I have a few other ideas that I just either haven't figured out how to illustrate properly or haven't had the time to yet:

    - Airdrop
    - Active Apps
    - Facebook Integration
    - A new unlock screen, with notifications

    While most of these seem pretty logical, I don't think the Launchpad gesture concept is very useful. You bill it as a quicker way for people to access their apps -- but considering that the home button's primary purpose is to return the user to their springboard, it really might not be that much quicker. I do however, see potential in your concept as a systemwide gesture to return the user to their springboard, much like the 5 finger pinch that's currently available for iPads.

    Thanks for providing us with your ideas! Keep working at them, they seem pretty good. :D

    I agree with what you say about the Launchpad, however, Apple likes to have the least amount of buttons possible on a device and this could start the process of removing the home button. ;-)

    I love what u came up with. It all fits very nicely with iOS and I can see most of it as an improvement.

    I like the new maps, music and phone apps, and also like the ideas of Mission Control and the task bar. However, the Notification Centre from the side would be horrid.

    It's at the top for a reason - it's much harder to accidentally to a gesture top to bottom than side to side. The reason it's like that on a Mac is that the screen is bigger and you have more precision with a trackpad/mouse.

    Also don't think Launchpad would be that practical, home button seems easier.

    Other than those minor niggles, great job!

    I liked it all, thanks. Can't please everybody, that's why there's chocolate AND vanilla.

    I LOVE the mission control idea... that would be amazing, especially on iPad.

    This is good stuff. Mission Control would be a great improvement on the current way of viewing active apps. Hope to see some of these in future iOS releases!

    Mostly pretty logical stuff. I like the contacts list. They might wait until they stop selling lower resolution devices to redesign the UI like that.

    I think that the designs that you have come up with for Contacts and Mission Control are great. However, the pinch and swipe gestures that you have come up with simply don't work, merely because they would get in the way of app gestures. And as for Launchpad on any iOS device, you're replicating a replication of iOS. Surely there is no faster gesture than pressing the home button to get exactly what you are looking for?

    Good concepts though.

    Thanks for the comments everyone else, too!

    Any ideas or concepts that any of you would like to see come real?

    My thought on it was so you don't have to click the home button and then search. Apple wouldn't Get rid of the apps on the home screen. Sometimes I double click the home butting and click a previous app to make it quicker - so my idea would be even quicker.

    Mission Control, especially on an iPad would be an interesting idea.

    But dude, just create a less misleading title and place a video online!
    I wanna see :)

    Seriously dude?? I created it and copied it from my Mac, I didn't even see your version before I made it. Just because you don't think there would be a need for it doesn't need I need to remove it. Sorry.

    Because it would be completely dumb to have them all in a folder AND some on the home screen. What purpose would that serve? More clicks... That's about it. Sorry dude, but I didnt copy anything from you... As I said - I copied it from OS X, apparently the same place you coppied it from. Besides, people on your thread seem to agree that it would be pointless.
