iOS concept imagines the iPhone with Apple Watch’s bubbly interface

The user interface for iOS hasn’t changed much since the introduction of ‘iPhone OS’ back in 2007. Sure, Jony Ive has added some tweaks over the last few years, but you still swipe around between rows of tiled icons.

Apple’s UI for the Apple Watch though is radically different that iPhone, with circular app icons on a homescreen that can users can zoom in and out of to find their apps easier, so Lucas Menge decided to take the pretty bubbly design and bring it to the iPhone. The results are pretty amazing and bring an entirely new look to the iPhone homescreen.

Check out the full demo below:

It’s not clear how the circular UI would handle folders, and we’d miss having a row of most-used apps in the dock, but the UI would be a welcomed change after years of the same boring tiled interface.
