iOS 7 To Be Black And White According To The Latest Rumors


With WWDC being around the corner, the rumors about iOS 7 are unstoppable. What we heard last is that iOS 7 will be "black, white and flat all over." The latest rumors also suggest that Jony Ive has gone through iOS with the sandblaster and has decided to drop heavy textures and the addition of several new black and white user interface elements are to come.

According to a person familiar with the Apple’s design meetings, Ive stated that software designs filled with physical metaphors do not stand the test of time. He also stated that because iOS’s current applications have several differing designs, Apple’s users could become confused. Black and White could solve these all!

The news come from 9to5 Mac, which reads:

“Now that over half a billion devices running Jobs’ and Forstall’s iconic system have been sold, Ive has the immense challenge to make Apple’s software as clean and seamless as his glass and aluminum devices, all while making the software remain simple enough to resonate with customers.

For the upcoming operating system, which Apple says will be unveiled at its June Worldwide Developers Conference, Ive has not simply picked areas of the software design to tweak. He has essentially made his mark on every corner of the operating system, according to descriptions from sources, all while mostly keeping the essence of what has made iOS so ubiquitous.”

Black and white? If this is true, I dare say I might switch to Android.

I've heard iOS 7 is expected to receive a design overhaul, but black and white would be far too plain for my liking. I don't understand why Apple would go for something like that.
