Really now? Apple calls iOS 7 internally ‘Modern UI’

Apple has a lot of people can inspire with the idea of ​​iOS 7, because it represents the continuation, improvement and retreading the old iOS, on which they had hoped. Here, however, there were also numerous critical voices speaking from the fact that iOS 7 too much of some features and design elements of Android and especially Windows Phone uses.

As the Wall Street Journal reports, one from Apple has brought not only in terms of design at Microsoft inspiration. Internally, namely spoken with iOS 7 of the “Modern UI.” This is exactly the name of the Windows user interface that Microsoft uses for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8, since one may call the child no longer “Metro UI”.

As Martin over at Dr. Windows writes all very true, Modern UI – translated: modern user interface – a very generic term and therefore you should not also make unnecessary the horses shy or even the very large club-swinging action on the part of Microsoft.

But one may ask, what sometimes happens in these unquestionably bright minds at Apple, that is based on this concept here of all of the competitors at least. Apple itself seems not to be entirely at ease – there should be instructions to avoid the term “Modern UI” in public if possible.

Personally, I think little of each company to chalk that one has to design and function X Y Z taken over by a competitor. For us, but also all the more pleasant when our respective favorites be better and lead to a more comfortable usability. If one but Apple knows and has in mind, how often and like the boys from Cupertino mock times other companies and sue me, then you should at least ask the question again why they are not in such an imaginative story.
