I saw this in the share menu on Flipboard and found it interesting - reminded me of all the flat design mockups. You think the mail and messages icons will look similar to this in iOS 7?

Yes.

Definitely.

No question about it!

Although, since I don't know anything at all about what iOS 7 is going to look like (in fact, nobody knows what it will look like) , it is just slightly possible that I could be wrong.

:rolleyes:

It looks very clean, but I think it looks too stale for apple to implement into iOS 7.

God, flat? Really? Like I want to go back 15+ years in design. Windows 2.1 anyone? Or maybe OS/2 2.0!

I remember the big announcements an eternity back about the 3d look to os'es, transparencies...dock, menu bars. And how beautiful is was all going to be. And now.....flat?

Give me strength! And the disco era returns!

I noticed how many apps are starting to go for a very flat and simple look too.
Take a look at the Argos (UK Shopping App) and eBay apps:

Flat icons aren't new at all.
I simply do not think that if a flat design is found in an app then it automatically means that is what we'll see in iOS 7. No one, to my knowledge, outside of Apple has seen this new design.

I think this is just a general design trend, especially given how many of these apps tend to be cross-platform. eBay knows that it needs to have an app that looks good on iOS, but also on Android... while at the same time, keeps a common design language with their web interface.

It looks like Google's current iOS design style.
