iOS hadn't evolved much in 5 years.

iOS in 2007 to 2012:
Thanks for telling us
So basically iOS was already great from the beginning in 2007 and through most of 2013, while it took all that time for Android to get to that point?
No, iOS was great in 2007, while Android caught up. Thats the thing though, Android caught up while iOS stayed the same.
Socrates had a quote that fits here. It went something like this, "There's no shame in being poor. There's only shame in not improving yourself."
Yes, Android was bad. But that is the past.
I'm assuming this is the part where you think that just because I say something positive about Android, that I clearly hate Apple/iOS. Even though that isn't slightly true.
Android caught up, but iOS didn't have anything to catch up to.
That aside, sure, a some sort of a refresh or even a redesign was needed, I think a lot of people are saying that it just shouldn't have been this particular design.
Yes, they had nothing to catch up to. Especially iOS 5's notification center. That was totally not catching up to anything. Control Center isn't either, nor the dynamic wallpapers.
Sarcasm aside, it isn't about just catching up. It's about not resting on your laurels while you're at the top.
BlackBerry did that, look at them now.
I'm not bashing iOS 7 by the way. There's a few things I dislike about it, but overall it's a definite step in the right direction. Now if Apple would just open up some more APIs.
Not sure what OSs you've been using. As far as I'm aware, iOS has been taking Android features since iOS 5.
Exactly. I'm not against it either. When companies take idea's from each other, it makes everyones product better, and in turn the consumer (us) wins.
Even Steve Jobs who is worshipped around here said, "Good artists copy, great artists steal."
Many people are blind to the Android features that iOS has been adding.
Does it matter, does anyone actually care?
You made a false post, then he replied with an objective rebuttal.

Apple is (was) not the first company wise enough to leave well enough alone.
You've somehow been missing the clearly everpresent winking smileys, right?
You're relating fashion to technology. I can say a Big Mac looks the same as 10 years ago. That's true. Compare an average TV in 2013 to an average TV in 1968.
The winking smiley would assume I was joking. A laughing emoticon would be more accurate.
It would assume that the statements I was making were of joking nature (given that the winking smileys were added at the end of those statements).
I was sooo happy for the redesign.
It was overdue. We've essentially had the same software since the first iPhone.
Change is hard, especially after so many years. People will get over it.
Two people misunderstood. But never mind, I don't care. Sometimes I read posts in a hurry.
He was quoting Picasso and describing the process of learning and applying artistic techniques to the creation of new and improved technology:
Not reproducing existing technology and charging less because someone already covered the development costs.
Darn you... Now I want a Big Mac
I still prefer the iOS 6 look. I always will. I do like the features 7 introduced, but I hope they bring back the look of 6 somehow. Or at least in iOS 9 include a classic theme.
Even though you quoted my post that's over a year old.. Now I'm hungry too.
