Today, Apple unveiled the newest version of iOS 7. While the fact that the design was changed radically is not surprising, the actual changes themselves are…confusing.
With Windows (Phone), Xbox, Google, and various other companies taking a “flatter” approach to UI design, it only makes sense that Apple would want to follow the trend of simplicity– especially now that Scott Forstall, the guy known for the skeuomorphic design elements present in previous versions of iOS. After all, that is what Apple strives for (especially in their hardware).
iOS 7 directly reflects the transition from Forstall to Ive’s rule over iOS, but are the changes truly an improvement?
