A concept video of what iOS 8 would look like if it was tailor made for the iPhone 6 has been created and posted by TechRadar. The video features a mockup iPhone 6 handset with an edge-to-edge display and no discernible Touch ID home button. The presentation style and background audio takes its inspiration from Apple's own highly polished product videos.

The video shows a revised iOS 8 notification center with multiple panes that allow you to swipe between a "Today" view, a calendar view and a messages view. Items are actionable, allowing you to tap an unread email and open the mail app in a slide-up shade, which can be swiped down when you are done reading.

Pulling from the most recent round of rumors, the concept envisions a Healthbook app that syncs with the iWatch, a supercharged Siri with Shazam and an even better version of Apple's new CarPlay feature.

Unlike an earlier concept that combined the notification center with the multi-task switcher, the Tech Radar concept keeps the radical ideas to a minimum, focusing on the core foundations of iOS 7 and exploring how they would look with a refreshed interface and few new features rumored to debut in iOS 8.

Lets be real... all the iOS concepts always includes USEFUL and intuitive features that Apple NEVER has integrated.

I wish these concepts were close to what Apple ACTUALLY releases in iOS, but its never even remotely as cool, intuitive, functional or useful. Its always what Apple BELIEVES we should want/need.

Maybe because its a hell of a lot easier creating a concept than ACTUALLY implementing something working in an operating system.

Concepts will always look more fancy and "futuristic" than reality.

Also a concept video doesn't have to think every single detail through in regards to actually using it and how it flows with the rest of the design. There's a huge difference between actually using something, and just seeing some fancy demo that doesn't have to think it all the way through.

Does anybody own the domain MacRenders.com? It's probably time for a rebranding around here.

Seriously. I don't get how speculative drawings are "news".
When there's no other news about that topic and people are waiting for something, then almost anything becomes "news".
