I didn't realize you're the ultimate authority. Am I supposed to pay tithes to you?

 

Did you even watch the presentation, or are you just looking at blurry photos?

Am I the only one excited to see how settings is going to look in iOS 7 ?

Agreed. Safari icon needs some work.

Did I say I have superb design talents? I have decent talents, not superb.

 

Jony Ive has superb talents, that's universally recognized. 

 

But no, you get your armchair critics who create an account just to post trash and say "eww, fail".

He would go on tech blogs and take every poorly thought out feature and implement them.

Uh...an iPhone 5. You couldn't tell they simply chopped off the top and bottom?

Craig's constant jabs at Scott reveals how their relationship deteriorated over the years, as each person's position of rank moved up. These guys used to get a long at NeXT and Apple when they weren't executives.

 

Everything is a frosty view isn't wowing me. Being able to slide change the opacity in a setting somewhere with a different base color would be a nice personal touch.

Agreed. Safari icon sucks.

Battery life increases are due to software and Haswell.

 

Well, I do think the new interface is very clean. I like the background effects. But its a move toward a flat interface, like windows 8. Its not exactly the same of course.  Well Android and iOS now have very different looks.

 

If the battery life is just achieved with Haswell, they using IGZO later on will return amazing battery life.

I agree entirely.  Especially about the Safari icon, what were they thinking?  

 

That and OS X "Mavericks" are just astoundingly bad/tacky.  Whatever made them think that the whole world is as enamoured of California and surfing as they are at Apple?  After the Sea Lion joke that preceded it, absolutely everyone in the room where I was assumed that "Mavericks" was an equally tacky joke name.  Jaws dropped when it became apparent that it wasn't.

post #96 of 410

I really want to judge it for myself, but I'm still waiting for the developer center to load...

 

*twiddles thumbs*

post #97 of 410
Wow! Unbelievably awesome.. Blew away my expectations. Apple has put itself years ahead of any so called competition once again.

NB The trolls coming in here out of nowhere with their sleeper accounts to trash apple are beyond pathetic.

If I don't like how it looks, no amount of berating from the faithful will force me to think otherwise.

That's nice, but don't waste your time here.  NEXT!

If the developer portal is any sign of interest, then results are very positive; the entire thing is down right now, I presume because of the hordes of developers trying to download IOS7 as we speak.

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".

You do realize, that if a dev wats a glossy effect on his App... he can now design it that way? Before, you couldn't add gloss because iOS overlayed the gloss on top of what you might have designed, creating a double-gloss.

Is this a new thing where accounts are created in the same day just to bash an OS? Seems awfully fishy to me.

 

Anyway I loved the interface design. Yeah it's a bit more colorful and simplistic, but I find it refreshing myself. Can't wait to try it out.

No, they've been doing it for years. Android morons.

It wasn't full multitasking until iOS 7, unless you think this new multitasking is exactly like it was before.  If that's the case please explain why they made a big deal about it in the presentation and why the attendees cheered.  It's different now.  It sucked before.  Now it doesn't suck.

Did Ive really get a standing O after that video? Business Insider says so but I don't trust them. lol.gif

Lots of nice new features there, but not too keen on some of the new icons and the frosted look of "Control Center".
post #107 of 410

When will iOS 7 be available for download?

Please update the AppleInsider app to function in landscape mode.

I was really concerned about the new "flat" design before the keynote. But man this thing is delightful and is like a breath of fresh air. It is not a flat design as most people thought. You still get a sense of depth. I love it.

Sigh.


No, kidding - people who couldn't design their way out of a wet paper bag. Not to f***ing mention they haven't seen it in person yet ... faaacking fools....

It is flat in plenty of ways.  It's certainly flatter than it used to be.  The design doesn't have to be completely flat in order to have elements of flat design.  I think you're hung up on some absurd idea that there is only one way to do things within any artistic style.  Contrary to that, there were many painters who used the realist style, the impressionist style, and the expressionist style but you can still easily tell two painters apart if you're familiar with art.

Very exciting time to be an apple product owner - I'm so glad this company is rocking out the features and enhancements! They're going in the right direction. And it's easy to see they're laying a great foundation for future updates. The design language is very smart, and the whole package looks awesome!

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.

Craig did a great job today, in my humble opinion. Someone I'd be very happy to meet. :)

Duh, that's what I said, and what was said at the presentation.

 

iOS always had multitasking (which is why you could ALWAYS listen to music whilst doing something else, i.e. multitasking). This was ONLY for native apps.

 

In iOS 4, Apple allowed select third-party apps to multitask. Full multitasking was, as I said, restricted.

 

It's still restricted, but now opened up much more to all apps. It's still not a free-for-all though.

 

The point was that iOS's core always was capable of this, that it was a purposed restriction until hardware (battery) caught up.

I think it looks pretty nice. The Safari compass looks a bit plain, and I wonder if there can be a more modern representation of "phone" than the handset of an old Bakelite phone.
post #120 of 410

Wow, lots of mixed opinions in my head. Some bits looks really nice, other bits looks awful. Sadly a lot of it also looks stolen from Win Phone and Android.
