‘Jony Ive Redesigns Things’ mocks Apple’s design chief efforts in iOS 7
We are all in for simplicity, but this seems to be taking it a bit too far, and the end results looks more childish, unfinished rather than modern. And looking at the mix of new icons one trend seems to materialize - Jony Ive just loves gradients.
How much? Should we say enough to redesign his own passport photo? Some people had fun imagining what would different things look like if Jony Ive redesigned them as he did with iOS 7. Hit the source link below to see how crazy things can get.

I do agree the UI, especially the icons. look a bit cartoonish.

Gradients have replaced skeuomorphism (or however it is spelled). I really hope we aren't in for 6 years of gradients. :-(

Now I can agree that iPhone is toy. Tim Cook is stupid.

At least the iPad is synonymous with kids toy to me. I have seen a lot of occasions where a kid is bugging his parent to let him play with the iPad.

Not necessarily a bad thing if done right... Japanese girls' hippy-like and unique fashion is nice to me.

But this is American stuff for American minds for American hands.

They should have put a photo of Psy, not Nicki Minaj.
Apple have a bad taste!

PSY isn't bad, PSY is awesome! He's a mother father Gentleman! :D

i cant help but notice Nicki Minaj hahaha the only thing nice to her is her ass, nothing else....lol
Btw i kinda like IOS 7, its simple, elegant and flawless xcept for some icons.....

I prefer LIL KIM over Nicki Minaj
5. SonyXperiaNexus (Posts: 367; Member since: 01 Oct 2012)
and here i thought they would face less criticism if they finally changed the look of iOS. I personally like the new look. but LOL anyway. nicki minaj as the inspiration seems legit.

It looks like symbian os........ios7 is behind the market!

Apple claim that they put a lot of effort into iOS 7, but apart multitasking they have done nothing significant. Apart multitasking they have changed only "skin" of iOS 6 and I think that the new "skin" is totally fail, I think that iOS 6 user interface was better than new one. I think that Android OS is still better.

After the preview of ios 7, British government might be thinking of taking the 'knighthood' away from Sir Johny Ive...........

LOL Nicki Minaj not so good to compare.The design looks soft flat and girlish. Guys wont like it though.

iOS 7: Designed for Nicki Minaj.
Gross. I'd pick the "designed for human" one.

At least the Maps icon doesn't have people driving off an overpass any longer.

I think Jony's played R.U.A. a little too much.
