    I guarantee there will be UI visual design updates before this goes live...

    besides the 1980's icons, on the home screen the app name is in pure white or pure black, with not even a hint of a drop shadow.... This has to be a mistake.

    And I hope they fix much of the other visual design mistakes in iOS 7 unveiled at WWDC yesterday.

    You have no idea what you are talking about, nor can guarantee anything.

    This is one of the biggest blowhard posts of the year. Good luck finding this guy when iOS 7 is released and he's laughably wrong.

    You don't seem to understand that these theme-like UI's are always a matter of taste, you have no way of knowing who likes it and who doesn't as only developers have access to the OS as we speak, please stop making presumptions.

    The OP is very correct on the lack of ANY sort of shadow. Put on the wrong color wallpaper and BOOM, cant read anything. With all previous iOS you could put ANY color wallpaper and would still have readability.

    The labels and buttons need drop shadow and/or glows. My money is on Apple doing this as well.

    It would be a bizarre choice not to as it would take away from the visual impact of the interface.

    a little bit better of an idea than you...and there is always subtle UI changes between the first beta and the final release, even on versions that are not visual train-wrecks...

    Cut him some slack - he's guaranteeing there will be changes to a beta version of a product that isn't going to be released for 3 months.

    He's practically a prophet.

    So you're suggesting they will make changes to something released as the first beta... way to go out on a limb.

    But how often are there major visual design changes during betas? I thought betas were mostly for bug fixes.

    The beta period is the fix anything they deem necessary. Visual designers consider issues with visuals to be bugs.

    To put it in perspective, the original iPhone shown in beta form didn't even have the YouTube app.

    significantly.

    which is different.

    Also, passing the buck on the visual design is a new one for an apple exec.

    Oooooo significantly.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the visuals might change before the final release.

    I am hoping they would change it (and assumed they would because most of the OS needs to be polished) but obviously I can not predict the future.

    Yesterday everyone was basically calling the OP an idiot and now everyone is going to tell OP that his prediction is an obvious claim. :D

    Not 1980's - late 1950's Euro modernism.

    Don't listen to those who laugh at you. I think you bring up a good point. Historically, Apple has ignored the haters and just gone on doing what they do best. However, sometimes things catch on (remember "Antennagate"?) and the media blows stuff out of proportion. I don't think this will be nearly as big of a deal as Antennagate was, but I do think Apple will make some design changes. It's a beta after all, nothing's guaranteed.

    Things can and probably will change

    Yes, that is how it works here at MR.

    ----------

    that is why I personally made so much noise about all this bad visual design. not because I hate Apple, but because I strongly like Apple products above all their competition, and only want what I have come to expect over the years, which is the very best.

    Oddly enough, most big media is not even touching on the idea that the app icons visual design is not liked by many, many people. It is mostly small blogs from UI types (and Mac Rumors) disliking the visual design...

    ----------

    kinda similar.
