The best part about Apple’s upcoming keynote is that we will all know what Apple’s next version of iOS looks like. We’ve seen so many concepts and ideas. We have no way of knowing how close or accurate they may be. Some are pretty, others are pretty ugly. This one is actually not bad. It doesn’t change things too much, though. At least not to the point where things become unrecognizable. In fact, it’s just the Music app.
Personally, it’s nicer when we see an artist redesign a single app or feature. I feel that some try to recreate all of iOS, and perhaps they spread themselves too thin, because it often feels a bit sloppier. When a designer focuses on one app, they pay much more attention to the details and all the small things that make the apps function. It ends up looking much better in the end.
