Concept for iOS 7 allows users to turn flat UI on or off

0. phoneArena 16 May 2013, 23:26 posted on

With WWDC getting closer every day, it means that we are closing in on the introduction of iOS 7 and the new skeumorphic free, flat design of the new UI. As we've already discussed, iOS 7 supposedly does away with the real-life icons that the late Steve Jobs and former Apple software head Scott Forstall favored and replaces it with the flat, gloss-free look that Jony Ive wants...

PA writing another article for web traffic. This concept not only looks terrible, but it's completely pointless.

While I agree that it does look terrible, how is it pointless? Think about if the s4, note 2, or HTC One could turn off their skins and use stock android. It would not only add to the customizable ability of the device, but the available RAM would increase too. See AnTuTu...another sensible statement.

Well, pointless in the sense that it's a concept design that's not affiliated with Apple's actual design plans. It's not the first time a site has done it, it's not the last time a site will do it, but... other than generating page clicks, not much point.
Since it's not an authentic Apple design this may as well post a story about a design by me, or you, or even an artistic orangutan. It would serve about the same amount of "point".

Either way, it wouldn't be bad at all if Apple did employ a choice like this, however personalization choices such as the one above are not really Apple's M.O.

Thanks! I try to be as even-handed & level-headed as possible during all my bashings and trollings among the interwebz.

Okay, enough of this civility. That doesn't generate the page clicks.

Would be a nifty feature if employed. See AnTuTu...a sensible statement.

Maybe I'm missing something here. How is this supposed to be an improvement?
