We recently heard that Apple designer Jony Ive’s influence over iOS 7 will be very apparent with the next update. Supposedly, it’s much flatter, and will focus less on skeuomorphic design, Actually, it sounds like he wants to drop that concept altogether.
The concept above borrows heavily from Window’s Metro look. According to rumors, Ive’s touches make iOS much more “flat” and may actually have that slightly more Metro design. Keep in mind, that doesn’t mean it looks like Metro, it’s just the closest concept people can relate it to when they try to articulate how it looks to someone who hasn’t seen it.
