    (Previously iOS 7.1 Features Concepts)

    I was bored so I did some quick concepts for some features iOS 8 really should bring:

    Quick Reply
    Ability to lock Apps with passcode or Touch ID
    A "kill all running apps" toggle
    (The Healthbook concept)
    Finder App (because some people want that)

    What do you guys think? :D

    Well it has been rumored Apple is already internally testing 7.1, for Maps improvements I think, Quick Reply is also a logical choice IF it doesn't come in iOS 7.0 betas 5 or 6...or lastly GM...

    I don't see them doing passcodes on a per-app basis. Users might create too many and it'd become quite overwhelming to manage all of them. Apple probably believes that the one passcode used to enter the device is enough to protect sensitive app data.

    Awesome if you ask me, I particularly like the App-Specific passcode feature, Apple should definitely add this. :p

    That quick reply concept fits perfectly with iOS 7

    If Apple actually adds quick reply option I hope they will allow third party apps to take advantage of the feature. Like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, etc. That would be good.

    Gosh, don't get my hopes up with this awesome mock up! It'll probably take another year for them to actually implement this so obviously-needed feature.

    I'd like it if they added the "Up next" feature we get on iTunes. It'd be really helpful tbh.

    I like the quick reply concept. Very nice! The only reason I would still maybe jailbreak my iPhone is for the quick reply. But I have the feeling Apple will hold that for iOS 8.

    Nice mockups! Hopefully they are listening and we get quick reply in 7.X.

    That would really be great and would work well in the notification center. I often shuffle my entire library and probably drain a lot of battery skipping tracks.

    Because the 5S would be focussed on Hardware changes rather than something small like this. I can't see Apple restricting Quick Reply to 5s upward customers.


    I like all 3 points above, and like other people have said, iOS 7 is about making things simpler, you can't get any simpler than "Quick Reply".


    Maybe if they don't do passcode on photo's they may use the fingerprint technology to access photo's instead?

    Talking about many passcodes, you could manage all of them in Settings, using a "Master Key", which could be your Apple ID password or something like that.

    But I agree, one passcode (on lockscreen) should be enough.

    Having said that, I would like to see that feature make it to the OS, because I don't like entering passcode everytime I unlock my iOS device :D

    Both valuable features and nicely rendered.

    Personally, I don't like the hassle of a lockscreen passcode, but a per app one would be very useful.

    I really hope Apple adds this as well as Up Next and a file uploader to Safari.

    And thanks for the comments :)

    I don't see them restricting it to certain devices but I can see them holding it back to launch alongside the 5S as a new feature, even if it trickles down to older devices.

    Go away. Not even close to being in context or funny.

    It's an API for developers to use on Mavericks, so I would say so.

    It was pretty bizarre watching the keynote and not seeing this. When they showed quick reply in OS X I thought, "OK, we know one feature in iOS 7." And then, nothing.

    I may be stating the obvious, but people have been asking for a quick reply forever, and for some reason, Apple never does it. In times when I have been jailbroken (well, my phone, not me), quick reply was great and worked perfectly. Is there a reason why apple not want to implement that ?

    I know there is a long list of similar frustrations for some of you, but this at least is not too much of a fringe item

    Love the concept! Just out of curiosity though, why'd you choose WhatsApp icon instead of the Messages.app icon?
