App Switcher Concept for the iPhone 5 [Images]

Posted October 9, 2012 at 2:29pm by iClarified
Check out this concept of an improved iOS app switcher for the iPhone 5, created by The Verge.

The app switcher now displays elongated card-like icons that serve as a visual representation of their respective app.

The playback controls page, accessible by swiping to the right, now shows more information about the media playing than before, while also sporting improved playback buttons (inspired by the new music app's player design).

The settings page (two swipes right), previously known as 'the useless volume slider' page, now features a useful brightness slider as well as settings toggles which, like the brightness slider, can be used as shortcuts to enable and disable system functions, previously only accessible through the settings app.

Check out the mockups below and let us know what you think of this concept...

As simple as amazing! Just like this. It's seems like one of the greatest concepts for the iphone.

Please make this into an installable tweak when iP5 jailbreak comes out!

It AMAZES me that Apple hasn't implemented easier toggles for WiFi, BT, 3G, etc...! SBSettings is the only reason for me to jailbreak anymore. What are they waiting for?

I love this new idea.. Especially for the brightness and 3G slide since it's used daily. Not sure the part were we can see an elongated and more detailed version of the opened apps is useful for the iphone 4s users since the screen isn't that big. Bu as an idea it's great

let me just ask the public this! all the testing with ios 6 how come they didnt make it any easier to end all the running tasks that are running much like MULTICLEANER on cydia all these years with multi tasking! they couldnt say hey how about a simple easy more effective way to end a task just slide the icons on the task bar slide them up to END them no need to hold down wait for the shaky icons and then have to click each X which gets annoying and time consuming

that is because you don't need to close the running applications, and by the way those are not the running apps those are the Recent Apps, and the iPhone is smart enough to close the app itself when it needs memory. I've noticed that on jailbroken iPhones closing them will enhance the speed of the iPhone, but with the non jailbroken it is always running like charm whether you close them or not. hope this helped.

Alen - October 9, 2012 at 3:13pm
Nice concept...Hey Apple we need this....
xizel - October 9, 2012 at 3:13pm
I still prefere these buttons in the notification slide down. thank you sbsettings

This is a nice Improvment! Aesthetically pleasing as well as giving "real" function to the useless volume panel. It's about time this was conceptualized, finality some toggles in the switcher bad. Now we need a coder and the Chronic Dev Team to JB an i5 and iOS 6... Sooooooon!

there is already a jailbreak for iOS 6 and nice Apps for it are showing every day but not for the iPhone 5 and I know for a fact that there is a jailbreak for the iPhone 5 but they decided to wait till after the new iPod 5 and iPad mini and 6.0.1 are out to release it so apple won't block it with 6.0.1 bug fixing upgrade.
