Analyst John Gruber, author of the blog Daring Fireball, predictive interface update of iOS 7, says that the changes will not be as radical as proposed in the concept design studio Simply Zesty.
American art studio offered its vision of the new OS with the expectation of “flat” design, which in this version, like the soft shell Windows Phone. Project iOS 7 features a completely new lock screen, Notification Center with advanced widgets and buttons to quickly access the functions of the operating system and the new square icons without the “gloss”.
In concept iOS 7 is a lot of smart ideas and interesting design solutions – says Gruber. – But whatever they are intelligent and interesting were not, their implementation will result in major problems for Apple.
For the materialization of ideas Simply Zesty «apple” of the company will have to put people to have to get used to a radically new design, which can lead to a loss of fans of the. With such an audience, like iOS, Apple will have to maintain the similarity with the previous versions of the system, says the blogger.
“If people start to ask -” What is this? Where are the features that I used? “- It will be a real disaster,” – says Gruber.
One of the main arguments of bloggers is that Apple will not give up the rounded corners of apps icons. Moreover, that this decision is protected by design patent.
“Mac OS X 10.0 is a clear indication of radical change, getting used to that was painful and lasted for several years – indicates Gruber. – IOS does not need such a shake-up.”
