iOS 7 Mock-up Demo App Switching; Chevrolet 2013 Sonic Integrates ‘Siri Eyes Free’ [Video]

Apple’s is working on its lates mobile opearting system iOS 7, according to a report the company is not planning many “drastic changes” in the iOS 7–especially in the look and feel front.

However, a graphic designer from Australia, Jesse Head, has designed, and imagined a beautiful mock-up UI for Apple’s iOS.

The mock-up of the iOS includes “tile” interface, similar to that of Windows Phone and WebOS, which allows the user to jump quickly between apps in a beautiful, fluid way.

The new app switcher also allow a user to search open apps quickly.

As for the music controls, a scrubber was excluded as it would begin to blur the line between the switcher and an actual music app. My opinion, is that the switcher should provide important controls… accidentally start a loud song in the middle of a church service? Use the switcher to pause or lower the volume. Scrubbing through a song isn’t quite as necessary.

In the video, head demos a number of proposed changes, including a new way of interacting with open apps. Like WebOS, apps can be swiped off the page to close them, a neat feature.

In other iOS related news, GM announced that the Siri’s Eyes Free feature to the Chevy Sonic and Spark vehicles are now available.

The company has also kicked off a new marketing campaign highlighting the feature that allows drivers to activate Siri through a dedicated button on the steering wheel in its 2013 Sonic.
