“iOS 7 is the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone,”
-Tim Cook, Apple CEO
Jonny Ive is definitely stirring things up, with a lot of UX patterns and styling being changed with this latest iOS iteration. I’m having trouble with some of the design inconsistencies like the minimal utilities menu that slides up in comparison to some texturing still in place, but I’m sure we’ll see things more polished by release. Apple definitely has captured my interest for long enough to prevent me from switching to Android’s ecosystem before trying iOS7 though, for now.
TechCrunch has written up a solid overview on the preview, check it out.
