The new look of iOS… 7 (right) and the current version 6 (left)
Earlier today, Apple held their WWDC conference in which they unveiled a bunch of new things. Among those things is the redesign of the mobile operating system that powers the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, etc. They showed off iOS 7 today with a major redesign, the first since the launch of the original iPhone back in 2007. The new design includes thinner fonts, flatter icons, brighter and bolder coloring… similar in some ways to the modern ‘Metro’ styled interface that Microsoft introduced in 2010 with Windows Phone 7. All of the built-in apps on iOS 7 have also been totally redesigned to be ‘simpler’ and ‘cleaner’, making better use of the on screen real estate. Gee, doesn’t that sound familiar?
iOS 7 will be available for the iPhone 4/4S/5, iPad 2nd gen and later (including iPad mini), and 5th-generation iPod touch this fall (probably coinciding with the new iPhone release this fall [iPhone 5S, anyone?]). Developers can get their hands on a beta version starting today.
Personally, the new iOS 7 looks like as if you ate a bunch of colored marshmallows then threw up on your iPhone. TA-DA! iOS 7. If you’d prefer another perspective, the new iOS oddly looks like something a Chinese knock-off company would come up with. It reminds me of a Fisher Price toy.
