iOS 12 Concept Shows Off Always On Display, Lock Screen Complications, Dark Mode, Much More [Video]

Apple is all set to officially lift the covers from iOS 12 and introduce the next-generation of its mobile operating system to an array of engaged developers.

As we have already tipped that Apple will focus on stability and usability improvements rather than an overhaul of features but this brand new iOS 12 concept demos what iOS 12 would be like if Apple did bring at least some system-wide improvements. It also gives us a new take on how Apple could advance its mobile OS.

Created this particular iOS 12 concept by Andrew Vega, Maximos Angelakis, and iupdateos, which is beautifully designed and executed and has the tagline “Smarter. Faster. Darker.” This concept looks to try and show their combined vision for what Apple could theoretically introduce with iOS should it want to make changes.

For those who may immediately see what this concept is all about it comes and goes some way to letting us into the thinking of all of the parties involved. From a future perspective, we’re looking at a dark mode, lock screen enhancements, an always-on display idea, and the much talked about group FaceTime experience.

One of the main parts of this concept would be that Apple could introduce an always on display that would be akin to some of the more premium Android-powered devices. Rather than having the display activated constantly and showing all of the information on the device, this would be to allow a user to instantly see pertinent information, such as the time, date, and weather conditions reports in the local area.

The team behind this iOS 12 concept could also benefit from lock screen complications that would allow a user to see pre-defined information directly on the lock screen in a familiar fashion to how Apple Watch works.

Another potential inclusion which is likely to appeal to the widest subset of users is the system-wide dark mode. This could be something iPhone and iPad owners have been crying out for over the last few years. Apple currently offers a dark mode of sorts through the Accessibility Smart Invert feature, that too, in iOS 11.x, but this is by no means a complete and potential dark mode that appeases those users.

All of these features are a great idea in practice, and you should eventually check out the video for yourself to see them in action. However, it’s far more likely that the announcement of iOS 12 will be an extremely timid affair without much going on in the way of design and feature addition improvements.
