Jony Ive pushing a flatter, simpler iOS design to the Apple design committee

It sounds like we may finally get our wish, Apple may finally update the UI of iOS. If you want to be kind, the UI on iOS is consistent; if you don't want to be kind, it's stale. Aside from the notification tray and adding a row of icons, the iOS UI hasn't really changed since the iPhone first hit the market, but it sounds like that is changing. Apparently, Jony Ive is even pushing a flatter, simpler iOS design to the Apple design committee...

All UIs seem to be getting flat like Windows Phone. Even webpages are ditching the 3D glosses and effects, like Yahoo! Mail, Google Play, and Billboard.

It's interesting, because everyone was designing interfaces similar to iOS and now it looks like Windows Phone is the new benchmark.

I actually prefer the black gradients and the smoked glass to this entire 'restroom-sign'-like stuff.

Let's not get excited, the UI maybe will have a combination of Android and WP.
