Color has meaning

Years ago a university design team was working on a project and I was disappointed in the lack of color in the interface. The response was "color has meaning". Don't color things just to look pretty, it needs to represent meaning.

I have faith in his design, but black and white? Sounds like a sterile and less lively OS. I hope he knows what he is doing.

Sweet! More notification center widgets. Yay! Those are so useful. Not. How about making a real notification center that works first.

If it looks anything like the Music app/player, it is going to look terrible.

When I updated my 4S to iOS6 and saw the new look, I asked myself if I was looking at a beta product. It looked completely unfinished and, frankly, terrible. If this is what we have in store for iOS7, I don't think it is a good direction. Honestly, the Galaxy S4 is becoming more and more appealing to me.

Thread summed up:

"There will be design changes to iOS 7."

"Booooooooooooo!"


"There will be design changes to iOS 7."

"Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!"

It's so funny to see how many people are already bashing something that they've never seen. I wonder if they are rushing their judgments in real life too.

That's really important. The same thing happens frequently in scientific visualization - colors are often picked because they look good instead of really focusing on the meaning of the colors.

Flat black and white? I dunno, this doesn't sound like something I'd like but will have to wait and see. I for one didn't mind the old way...it's the features that need updating not the design so much. I hope Apple isn't going to blow it here.

All you people bashing it before you've seen it are pretty sad. Just by that description I can tell it's going to be amazing. It'll likely set the standard for mobile OSes just like the original iOS did. If you guys would actually use it before rushing to form an opinion then maybe you'd see that.

I'm looking forward to "seeing" iOS 7 but I won't use it even if it is offered(which I doubt) to me. I upgraded from 4.3 to 6.1 and my battery life took a nose dive. I had to turn ALL notifications off and leave it in Airplane Mode. Before, I could go a week without turning it on and then turn it on a watch several hours of videos. Now If I left the wifi on for a week and didn't turn the iPod on, the battery would be dead.

PS. Above device is iPod Touch 4th Gen.

It's probably no big deal for a person who uses and charges their device every day but I don't.

I don't buy article, there won't be any radical change in GUI, it would be suicide, and he will have to write an apology letter or be fired.

Apple has not and should not follow Microsoft or Google steps in GUI design.

I like the idea of black and white mixed with one colour for each app. Skeuomorphism has uses, but it was far too overdone, so there is a lot of potential for improvement. Potential being an important word in that sentence. I am looking to seeing iOS 7 as it is quite unknown how it will turn out.

Hmm. I'll wait 17 days for this. Pretty cool knowing this would be on some of our devices then. Hurry up, beta 1!
