Another source said, iOS plane design is a bit like Microsoft’s recently launched Windows Phone Metro UI.


IOS minimalist design, it does not use any complicated material, imitation of real objects like the existing iOS memos, contacts, and calendar design will cease to exist, and may be more amenable to the test of time simple design.


iOS has always been simple to operate as a call intuition, Apple obviously do not want to bash this sign, iOS 7 of the new design also reported will keep the tradition of simple, almost do not have the learning curve.

IOS 7 will adopt a new design concept, However, because the majority of the Apple Store App has its own unique interface, iOS 7 changes will not affect the current iOS App developers too.
