This week, Apple gave the world its first peek at iOS 7, the software that will power iPhones and iPads starting later this year.
Helmed by hardware guru Jony Ive, the update will bring the most dramatic visual overhaul of Apple’s mobile OS to date. As expected, it embraces a flat aesthetic that allows for layering based on functionality. For example, you can peek behind icons to see your wall paper. So while the UI may be flat, the UX is anything but.
Just how different is iOS 7 compared to the software we’re running now? Take a look for yourself.
I really like Fast Company’s post on iOS 7 because it shows the comparison between iOS 7 and iOS 6. It seems to me that the UI and UX of iOS 7 are similar to Android.
I recently downloaded the Yahoo! Weather app and I love it. You can see a picture of it in Fast Company’s blog post. The layout and pictures take advantage of the iPhone 5’s retina display. I can’t wait to see to the next iPhone release.
