What If Apple Went In On A Mobile OS Mashup?

Microsoft Surface RT: The Sad Treadmill Of Overhyped Expectations

Three mobile operating systems dominate the market: iOS, Android, and now Windows Phone 7/8. Each has its interface strengths — iOS is clean where Android is customizable where WP8 is dynamic.

But what if you could have the best of all three?

Designer and Wrapp cofounder Max Rudberg has attempted to portray this hybrid OS, putting live tiles and widgets on the iOS home screen.

The Settings icon opens up into a window with toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc., and Mail opens up into a tiny inbox with three message headlines.

I honestly don’t ever think Apple would let it look like that, as it goes against every minimalist bone in Jony Ive’s body (and iOS chief Forstall’s gone now, remember).

But since the imagination isn’t bound by the constraints of reality, feel free to ogle this awesome version of iOS that will never be.
