It wasn't felt though. It was pixels made to imitate felt, and the wood was terribly done. It's time to modernise and think outside the box.

I'm not blaming anybody for wanting Apple to provide that feature. As a matter of fact, I believe that Apple should definitely provide that feature, and that they should have done so a long time ago.

 

I'm looking at it from a common sense point of view, and since Apple hasn't provided that feature, I was pointing out that there are other options out there. If somebody wishes to spend years waiting on some feature, then be my guest. In the meantime, there are other options.

I call fake. If somebody has access to iOS 7 and wants to leak screenshots, I am sure there are far more interesting aspects to show off than missing gloss effect to existing application icons.

 

Also, why the ultra blurry picture? The user could have taken a screenshot of the screen directly from the phone itself. How hard is it to press the Power and Home buttons to take a screenshot?

I work in app development and I've heard complaints from clients who don't like the fact that the icons they've designed are not the ones that appear on the store. Designers never like someone modifying their work, even something relatively minor like adding gloss. We always refer their complaints to Apple.

Pressing Power+Home: Piece of cake.

Sending the created file to ANY off-device service using ANY method of transfer under ANY circumstances: Piece of cake*.

Or you tell Xcode not to add gloss. Either way.

I have a feeling the icon change is not the biggest thing happening for Apple & their iOS.
In the market for some new hardware & really looking forward to the next year and a half.

I'm not sure if I'm confident with Apple and Craig Federighi altering iOS's UI a whole lot. Unfortunately, while there's people like us with a brain and who want to know everything there is about the devices we spend money on, at the same time, there's brainless morons out there that can't handle a UI any more sophisticated than the current "grid" setup iOS versions 6 and earlier have displayed because they know nothing about their devices. Apple will likely keep the UI similar to what it is now with a few minor changes. Unfortunately, it's likely Apple will want to keep sporting a UI for the users that don't have a brain; thus, iOS could still look like it's behind today's more sophisticated interfaces like Windows Phone 8 and Android. 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I want iOS to drop the glossy look. I believe that is one of the reasons why the phone looks like a toy. I want a more serious, professional looking iPhone, and not something that looks like Fisher- Price made it. The skeuomorphism also plays a roll in this play toy-like look.

 

The lock screen is ugly--what Apple needs to do is take away the layers and just create a single layered lock screen that has live weather conditions and animations that reflect that in the background with the temperature and the time. The actual number keys used to unlock the phone should/could be a non-transparent version of what the number keys look now, except slightly smaller and without the 3D/boxy effect. The current, "slide to unlock" and quick camera icon could/should be placed on that animation without the additional gloss layer underneath and around it.  This would create a beautiful, flat lock screen. In addition to that, users should be able to access the new and improved notification center from the lock screen when a new badge for notifications appear... This way all of the notifications won't fill the screen up. 

 

The UI itself after the phone is unlocked should lose the gloss, lose the notepad looking animations, bookshelves, etc. and should be re-arranged and re-sized so that I can actually see a picture of my girlfriend or other background photo instead of what it looks like now where the Apps just cover the whole page. 

 

 

Just a couple of ideas.

I thought "flat" meant stripping away the gloss, shadows, extra colors, etc. Taking away only the gloss layer doesn't do much at all. And with the hype of Ives, this can't be the new look. That would be stupid.

Who the heck wants it "flat" in the first place?


…hype…


There's your problem.

This doesn't look legit to me, either. If the "leaks" are correct, the wood shelves from Newsstand are gone, yet they are present in the photo. And, aside from the loss of the gloss layer, nothing about these icons looks flat.

But, I guess we'll see in a week.

The icons are way too much like android ones. Too flat and boring. I like the current ones. Just make some useful (like weather) and allow me to delete the stocks app.

Why does the extremely blurry icon grid not line up with the non-blurry status bar at the top, why does the blurry icon grid not fit into or even line up with the iPhone display frame and why does it appear to be printed on blotting paper?

Have you noticed that the image is crop in the top left corner??? Maybe is just a screenshot of some design...

Apparently neither your clients, nor you are aware that you can turn "off" the glossy icon effect with a simple setting change in Xcode. Look it up.

In a somewhat more mysterious vein, Global Equities Research‘s Trip Chowdhry and colleagues today reiterate an Overweight rating and a $650 price target on Apple stock, writing that they have been attending about 9 to 12 tech conferences per month this year, and speaking to “400 to 500 people a month,” and that based on those conversations, they arrive at the common view that “iOS7 has a very simple, clean and uncluttered UI (User Interface), which may take little time to be appreciated.”

The authors add that “iOS7 is completed new UI, which is far superior to anything that is available out there.”

“Apple will aggressively go with Patent Infringement for each and every competitor that may have even tried to copy a small feature from iOS7.”

They also add that the new UI may support new touch gestures called “bend” and “squeeze.” I inquired with Chowdhry as to what that means, but he has no additional information.

The group observes that “None of the Apple currently shipping products support these gestures, which indicates a very high likelihood of a completely new Device that supports both Bend and Squeeze gestures.”
 
BlackBerry new OS 10 is pretty much the best thing going right now. Clean, easy to learn and fast. Sad when stock annalists are pointing out that Apples strategy will be to sue everyone again. I see Apple loosing more and more market share with their litigate rather than innovate strategy.

Flat or 3-D--who cares? What iOS needs isn't a bit more or less chrome, a la Detroit in the 1950s. What it needs is better features underneath, particularly more ability to deal with rich text and easier ways to exchange files with computers, both our own and those of others.

And why not built-in group collaboration as a business tool? Let two or more people share documents.

I looked up on youtube what a Mac OS/Ios looking Interface would look like, It looked like this with a improved dock, and better in landscape.

The very well connected folks at 9to5Mac said this is legit and that its of an earlier build of iOS 7.

If the screenshot is legit, the person already has no issues leaking information and might a well give us higher quality photos. You can simply focus on the screen with most smart phone cameras to take a far higher quality photo than that. My assumption is that photo was deliberately blurry because it was fake (probably just a static picture being displayed on the screen) or even mods installed from Jailbreaking.

I really don't think you understand what I wrote.

Because no one will notice you taking the time to do that.

 

I'm not disagreeing with you; I'm just saying there's a perfectly logical reason the quality is so bad.

If anything, this is probably a fan made theme for Winterboard. I can see the new interface going down this route, however.
