“Technology will continue to disrupt and mutate our lives. Our job is not to resist the mutation, but embrace it and figure out how the differences can work together.” – UX Magazine
Case in point to the above was last week’s iOS 7 unveiling at WWDC. “iOS 7 is the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of iPhone,” proclaimed CEO Tim Cook to attendees. “It’s packed with tons of new features, and a stunning new user interface.”
Technology analysts are loving the new features, but others are calling it a threat to existing apps and services.
With the radical redesign that’s heavily influenced by flat design, there’s a lot of buzz about what this will mean for designers and how Apple’s new announcement can have a significant effect on iOS app interface design which may be a concern for designers.
