Only a few hours away from WWDC 2011, but we got a new iOS 5 video concept just to keep the hype alive. This video demonstrates how the signature icons from iOS could receive a possible face lift.
Users have the option of turning on these “dynamic icons” by going to the Settings. Icons are granted the ability to change their appearance given a variety of push notifications. In turn, once the notification badge is pushed, a new icon file is displayed. These icons can have text (albeit small, but legible text due to the Retina Display), images, a mixture of the two, or something constantly changing (but based on an internal source, not using cellular data — a la Clock app that displays time).
