New official Apple WWDC app could show where the iOS design wind is blowing
posted by Victor H. / Jun 04, 2013, 4:59 AM
As you certainly know, Apple’s iOS chief Scott Forstall left the company in October 2012 and since then designer head Jony Ive has been overseeing design of Apple’s mobile platform. Forstall is believed to be ousted after a huge fiasco with Apple Maps release and for his preference for ornamental designs. He is also believed to have been at odds with Ive over the design language used in Apple products.
Now, way before we hear about iOS 7, this WWDC 2013 app could well be revealing of Jony Ive’s plans for platform redesign towards simplicity and modernity. Take a look at the comparison between the WWDC 2012 and WWDC 2013 apps below for an indication of where the winds might be blowing for iOS.

So basically, all Apple did was hit the "Ctrl + i" button to make the apps inverted color? Total cost: $100m, Engineers: 600, Total time: 13 months. Innovation of the decade!

Oh looky', you now get the Date with the Day; now that's iRevolutionary. I know which way Apple's wind is blowing: right through the butt cheeks and underwear of a homeless man on crack.

I am by no means an apple apologist (I am an android user), nor am I claiming that iOS 7 will or will not be anything special. It may or may not be. This is just an app for the current version of iOS. Not a shot from the new iOS. It signals the flatter design they are moving toward, but other than that this is irrelevant and in no way an indication of the overall functionality of the new OS.

It's only an app. It probably does the overall color theme, but it doesn't show what the overall product will look like. You can't make judgements from this. That said, I doubt Apple will go for any huge change. It'll still probably look 95% the same.

Give me widgets, and the ability to change default apps, I'll go back to the iPhone. The right software, will make the iPhone the ultimate phone. 1. Quality build 2. Best overall camera (even the blind test proved this) 3. Custom hardware 4. Very nice design Yes Androids have more powerful processors, but so what? They never use it to their full potential, because the same processor powers 10 other phones. Apple makes their own chip just for the iPhone, so it works faster, and is more stable. All they need is the software enhancements.
