A concept of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 has shown off Apple's iOS 7 platform with live widgets

An iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 concept video has leaked iOS 7 with Apple's Widget Center.

The concept pictures, by SimplyZesty, feature a whole new home screen interface, plus a notifications bar, similar to that on Android.

In fact, the whole approach looks pretty Android-esque and according to Gotta Be Mobile, it's very close indeed to the ideas of Sir Jony Ive, who is said to be very much involved in the design of iOS 7.

iPhone apps like Weather, Music and Calendar have full widgets, allowing you to see the latest information in one quick glance.

Quick settings along the top of the screen allow you to adjust brightness and toggles for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Flight mode are all present.

Push notifications seem in action on Mail, Phone and Messages, while icons lose their rounded edges, making everything look a whole lot crisper.

Widgets re the one feature Apple devices have traditionally been missing.

According to Gotta Be Mobile, widgets are something Apple users have been asking for for a long time, alongside a proper notifications bar like on Android.

We reported iOS 7 looks like it's already being used by some developers, as it showed up in Web traffic for the iPhone 5 and iPad.

Many iOS 7 features have been rumoured hopefully going to arrive with the iPhone 5S or iPhone 6. From the settings menu, we're told we can expect extra support for parents whose children use an iDevice regularly. One suggestion has been that Apple will allow multiple user access, so a child would have a different account to an adult, and therefore some features would be blocked.

iOS 7 is likely to appear during Apple's WWDC June conference in San Francisco, alongside the launch of a new iPhone, we hope.
