iOS is known for its Simplest OS which everyone can use and love. This is the reason why people stay with iOS and it is also the reason why they leave. Though some people like the simplicity of iOS but some also feel more attracted to complex operating systems like Android or Windows Phone. iOS haven’t been changed even after its 7 versions and still followed that same simple approach. But this Simple approach needs to be tweaked a bit to attract people who want more from their device while still having that same simple interface.

Jay Machalani a graphic designer gave a new concept for iOS 8 which should take care of this problem. He took the concept of Android`s widgets and Windows Phone`s ‘Live Tiles’ and tried to mix them together and gave a new Concept called ‘iOS Blocks’. The new concept is to allow users to do a pinching gesture to expand the app and gain more information or control right from the icon like Media player, Weather, Calendar, Messages and many more.

Machalani Believes that with this concept iOS will gain that ‘magic-trick’ while still keeping that gradual change which Apple likes. This feature brings real-time information on your home screen without opening the app. But still you can also do things on the Block because it’s the app itself not a standalone entity. Users will still be able to open the application but if they need just some information they can pinch to make it bigger in a block. You can also let the block left on the Home screen like it is, so you could view information quickly like weather, Calendar, media player controls and others right from home screen.

Machalani said that this concept also has long-term potential with third-party integration. People will be able to see Facebook Notifications, create new notes on OneNote or post Secrets with ‘Secret’ right from the Home Screen.
