    Sir Jony Ive’s iOS 7 Set to Usher in Big Changes in Design



    According to 9to5 Mac’s sources, we could be in for a bit of a shock when Apple release iOS 7 (codenamed “Innsbruck,”), which will be the first iOS version to come from Sir Jony Ive’s leadership of the team. The report says that “multiple” people who have either seen or been officially briefed on iOS 7 says that its completely redesigned interface will be appealing to new iOS users, but in turn might be a bit unsettling for those who know and love the familiar old iOS interface. 9to5 Mac says that the new look is “very, very flat,” without any of the previous “gloss, shine, and skeumorphism” of the current iOS design. Even more worryingly, another of 9to5 Mac’s sources says that iOS 7 will have a flat look similar to that of Microsoft’s Windows Phone Metro. Apparently, in terms of iOS 7, “flat” means that the look will be very simple, without the sort of skeumorphic look of diaries and notebooks that look exactly like real-life diaries and notebooks. If true, this could be a risky move for Apple, as some might say that the skeumorphic look is one of the things that makes iOS so appealing and sets it apart from other smartphone OS interfaces. Others might say that it’s time for a change, however.

    I think that a change is necessary at this stage, but the implied extent of the changes made to the interface are slightly worrying. Upon iOS 7's release, I will definitely watch a lot of footage of the new operating system before deciding whether or not I want to upgrade...

    Ultimately Ive should make it an option more than a full implementation until a full poll has gone through, or just leave it toggle-able

    Who's to say we won't have the option of toggling between UI's?

    I'm definitely gonna keep updates posted when the betas released.

    In life don't matter the steps you do or the shoes you wear but the footprints you leave behind.

    Yeah, since when does apple want to be like MS? The UI is one area that apple shouldn't touch at all. It slick, good looking and works great.

    I don't like the sounds of this at at all.....

    I don't care for the skeumorphic look and would prefer more elegant design. If I'm reading an ebook, for instance, I don't need it to mimic a print book with curling pages and such. I also find the fake bookcase in Newsstand and iBooks to be totally cheesy. Good riddance if Apple purged such "features."

    9to5 Mac is pretty credible though, I would think these rumours are most likely accurate.

    The look is not nearly the same as making the OS flat like MSs. And I think most people really want additional functionality...I'm not fond of emulating a hard book either, but that part is insignificant compared to functionality issues. It's scary when the first mention we get of some real changes have to do with skeumorphic rather than useful, functional updates.
