Apple reveals overhauled iOS 7 with vibrant, more colorful design - Page 2

post #41 of 410
Love the flat design for the most part. Icons are a bit too gaudy. Control center - finally - one feature most Android phones have (with horrible UI), that Apple needed to implement. Looks perfect - esp. from lock screen.

In the meantime...Kids will love it!

 

They're not pastel, they're more Caribbean or Californian.

A washed out, over-busy version of their old over-saturated candy style. This is going to tank big time. Ive should have kept to hardware.

 

This is quite shocking as I'm sure Apple has some top graphic designers working for them but this... ohmygod.

 

Waah waah.

lol.


where's the outrage? 

 

Well, you're a troll and whining about it on an Apple site. There's the outrage. Shut up and go away.

Looks like a rendering of iPhone 5 with the parts of the top and bottom clipped off.

Flat?  I guess in some ways, but that home screen tilt feature is as 3D as you can possibly get.  

 

I think this is a great redesign, perhaps incorporating some of the ideas of flat design, but pretty much in a class of its own.  If they'd gone as flat as some speculated it wouldn't feel special at all.  This looks great and I can't wait to try it out.

In this thread, we'll hear from a bunch of non-designers who have poor taste and could never design anything themselves and who don't at all properly represent the mainstream public complain endlessly about "poor design". 

 

Sigh.

Prognosticators were the ones preaching "flat".

 

This is more "clean". 

 

It still has transparency, textures, etc. It's much more open feeling, which actually makes the display seem bigger.

There will likely be features not shown for both the iPhone 5S and new iPads. I for one love the new design and functionality. It is not only beautiful, but looks to add more functionality without adding gimmicks or complexity. Apple has defiantly maintained its OS superiority with this.

Not keen on this new design...
post #51 of 410

Still no customized home screen.  Still no widgets.  meh

Side note-

 

Welcome all brand-new posters with less than 10 posts to tell everyone how much the new iOS sucks.  We all really value your input.

Actually really liking the design and  enjoying the new usability features. The icons though....back to the drawing board guys.

post #54 of 410

Two thumbs up. I loved the new look. I liked the consistence of look across the OS, the clean design, and the innovative use of animations. I also liked the control center addition, which things like a flash light added. iRadio also looks like it has the potential to kill Pandora. It will for me.

I liked the look of most of them. The Safari icon will take some getting used to. 

post #56 of 410

Tim Cook and team should be very proud of this WWDC. There was a lot of great stuff presented there. Mostly I want to say how great Craig Federighi was presenting. They really need to give him more stage time as he was really really great.

Omnibox search in Safari finally arrived, but Chrome had it way before. Speaking of Chrome, the tab switcher in mobile Safari looks exactly like the design in Chrome for iOS/Android except it is slightly angled. Sharing state across browsers? Invented by Chrome.

 

Imagine the outrage if someone had a patent on these features and sued Apple, but yet if someone even uses an icon that looks similar to an Apple design, cries go out of "THEFT!"

 

Props to Apple for the new Mac Pro, and the new iCloud apps, but the new iOS7 design is clearly "inspired" if not outright copied, from other mobile OSes, Apple needs to drop the obnoxious claims of ripoffs if they're going to engage in hypocrisy and patent trolling.

 

You do know that Chrome is/was built off of Webkit, right?

post #58 of 410

This is just... words fail me

 

 

Also is the song title a subtle message from Jony Ive on his interface design chops? 1smile.gif

Waiting for some idiot to talk about multitasking as if iOS just added it - it's been there all along, all Apple had to do was "flip a switch" to activate it.

 

So then it wasn't there all along...

post #61 of 410
Nope, there's more than one who doesn't like it. I, for one, liked the dimensional look to the way the apps floated over the screen, and the material like touches to them. It gave them weight, and made everything look polished and well thought out. This design takes all of that away - too colorful, too flat - boring icon images with hurt your eyes color. Don't care for it at all, and this is coming from a long-time Apple and iOS user. I'm sure I'll upgrade, and I like some of the features coming to OS X and LOVE the idea of the iWork in iCloud upgrade, but I'm not happy about the visual design change at all. If I wasn't so invested in the architecture and wanting to use iWork in iCloud, I'd probably upgrade my Mac and leave my iPhone and iPad the way they are. 1frown.gif

He was the best Apple presenter since Jobs.

 

The less Tim Cook can be up there, the better. Nothing against him... Craig can make things seem magical, while Tim can't.

Right.

 

Now we know why you're not paid, all that crazy talk must make it hard to hold down a job.

Having said that, I hope the new look of iOS grows on me.  I'm not crazy about it so far.  There is a lot to like w/ multitasking, etc, but the icon colors and such are kinda gimmicky to me.

 

Probably not a popular opinion here, but it's mine and I'm entitled to it.  I am not hating on what Jonny has done, he's brilliant, but those icons...just not for me.

I agree on the application icons. They went too simply IMO and I kinda liked gloss. On the flip side, the fact all the apps have a very consistent look and feel is simply stunning at the system wide level. The new photo browser is great. The new camera app is nice and I am sure the iPhone will be used to share even more pics. The calendar looks like it picked up some much needed TLC.

 

But I think I will miss a bit of the "gloss".

It was there, but restricted to preserve battery life since iOS 4.

Multi-tasking? Since iOS 4.0. They added some new modes.

post #68 of 410

Had to sell my options that comes to expirations before jan 2014 and went short with a little cash. I really love the cars deal, the Apple TV mac screen which could be used over airplay. 

 

The flat interface is a risky move. Apple will get flame all over the net for cloning windows 8. 

 

The Mac pro looks nice, but what about upgradability?  I saw it has a few PCI slots, but other than that I didn't see much else.

 

Macbook air battery life increase is nice. I wonder how they pulled it off. It could be IGZO

It's almost like Apple ran through the list of all our gripes until there was nothing left for us to complain about. That's going to make some people on this site very, very unhappy, not to mention leaving them with a new void to fill in life.

THIS is what a standing ovation while typing looks like!

Wow. What a hideous UI. I'm still in a bit a shock from what I just witnessed.  I cannot believe Apple would even reveal an interface like this to the public.

iOS 7 is in no way "flat".

If you bought an iphone/ipad in the last 1.8 years, you did pay for 7.

Plus the settings menu had round buttons and other controls reminiscent of Windows Phone.

 

Need to see more images to tell if there's a cohesive theme here, or more of a mish-mash.

If Apple would just allow user settable themes, they could make everyone happy.   And no doubt themes would become one of the most popular and lucrative App Store sections.

Personally, I am very impressed with iOS7! Obviously, Wall St. isn't. AAPL can't catch a damn break

post #77 of 410

I, for one, love it. The old GUI was getting way too dated. This looks modern and fresh to me.

It's not flat and it looks nothing like Windows. Seriously?

 

Battery life increases are due to software and Haswell.
