Hackers are going to release a jailbreak for iOS 7 sooner or later and when that happens Cydia will become one of the most important and used app on our iPhones and iPads. Cydia store is the reason why the concept of jailbreaking is so popular in the first place. While we all love Cydia one thing that we don’t like about it is its ancient looking design. Cydia just like iOS has remained mostly unchanged as far as looks are concerned since the beginning. However with the release of iOS 7, which has helped in transforming almost every third-party app in the App Store it is very likely that iOS 7’s Cydia will feature a completely new look.

To show us how Cydia could potentially look once the iOS 7 jailbreak is released some artists have created awesome concepts. Some of them are so good that we have decided to share them with you here. Have a look:

iOS 7 Cydia


This gorgeous looking concept is by DeviantArt user Vitalovitalo. It features a simple looking design that completely fulfils all the design requirements of iOS 7. The new Cydia icon, the top and bottom navigation bars, the small icons for folders and other sections look simply great. If the real Cydia turns out to be anything like that we are going to be very happy.
