    In iOS 7, Apple redesigned the user interface from top to bottom, removing most "skeuomorphic" elements and giving the OS a cleaner and lighter look and feel. Back in January, it was reported that OS X 10.10 -- code named Syrah -- would also see a flatter redesign, but that it would not see as extensive a reworking as iOS did.

    Designer Danny Giebe has posted a series of concept images on Dribbble, showing what an iOS 7-inspired redesign of OS X could look like:

    It is not known what Apple will call the next version of its OS X operating system, but may show off the new OS -- and its new California-inspired name -- at WWDC in June of this year. Over the past several years, Apple has tended to release its new Mac operating system in mid-Fall.

    Sounds good to me. As long as they don't remove function. I like having the same look across all my devices. Just please don't make all the dock icons square

    Daddy like.

    I think it'll look more like iCloud website though.

    After my heart rate settled down, it started to grow on me, already. Change is a bitch, but bitches can be good, too.

    I'm not sure if i like it or not. I don't really think Mac OS needs adapting in the same way iOS has, OSX has to me, always looked brilliant as it is.

    I give it a meh. It might look better if Apple does it, right now it looks like Microsoft [over]did it.

    Every 'flat' OSX design concept I've seen has been really nice. Apple could be so subtle with it and still keep everything distinctly OSX. With simple straight lines and block colours, Mac OSX could become something really up to date and modern whilst still remaining iconic and instantly recognisable as OSX.

    I don't usually like these types of mockups but that actually looks pretty good.

    If you want just change some icons and get it over with. But, I hate to say it this is ugly. I like the current layout, the new one is just um....please don't.

    Hmm.

    This reminds me a lot of Aero Glass from Windows 7.

    On the one hand, I like it, but on the other, I'm afraid all the white will turn my monitors into tanning lamps.
