Apple iOS is undoubtedly one of the best mobile operating system out there but right now it is left behind on one front, which is lack of new design and revamped UI. The world’s most popular mobile OS hasn’t changed much in the past few years and fans have been complaining about it ever since the release of iOS 4. Now as we await iOS 7 it is expected that Apple will finally introduce new graphical changes along with new features to revive the looks of iOS on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Jailbreak tweaks and themes such as Peekly show us what iOS is missing.
