    Troubled by the new iOS design? Confused by it all? Read the official Apple PDF; you'll gain a LOT of insight - it's very, very beautiful :)

    Sign up to Apple Developer Connection, then goto:

    https://developer.apple.com/wwdc/videos/

    And find "What’s New in iOS User Interface Design" - and download the PDF.

    I'm pretty sure Apple considers MacRumors a blog.

    Good presentation, still ugly. The concepts sound good on paper, but that doesn't absolve the poor, often confusing visuals.

    Posting it to the public in any regards is against the developer NDA.

    This thing truely shows you that all they did was hastily reskin the OS and didn't actually work on the issues that should have been resolved. This is nothing like the transition from android 2.3 to 4.0 which literally was a complete redesign and the look and feel was much more polished. Pretty much everyone was in agreement that 4.0 looked much better than 2.3.

    Please would you remove the link from this quote - I'm pulling the PDF, re-considered my actions. Thanks :)

    It's a question of semantics. The copyright played before each video applies to the pdf files as well.

    This is just the slides from the video, which is in the WWDC app which is free to free developer accounts, so it's not super secret exactly, but there's a lot of information missing regardless.

    ----------

    It's fixed.

    I know where he got them from. Either way they are just a copy to the slides presented during the sessions. They are not meant to be super informative.

    That's opinion, nothing more. I would hardly say "hastily" - that's very dismissive and disrespecting of their HARD work, when you see the incredible detail that has been used, and consideration of every minute pixel and spacing point. To say this is just a skin is totally ignorant of what goes into a complete OS re-design and overhaul, with all respect - this IS NOT just a skin, seriously.

    Put this back up. This pdf was meant to tell developers how to change their apps to meet the new look. You can find this right on their website. There's nothing illegal about posting it here. Put the dropbox link back online so more people can truely discuss this.

    He was not posting the iOS7 UI transformation guide, he was posting slides from a developer video. Two totally different items.

    I think great effort was put into the iOS 7 update. I'm dumbfounded that iOS fans would not find it beautiful. It finally brought the iOS interface into 2013.

    And Google did that in 6 months? Lets see what iOS looks like when 7 is actually release, or better yet when iOS 8 comes out.

    Google are chasing their tails with Android, as are the OEMs - it's like a sweet shop - pick some candy and hope that it tastes nice this time :p

    It's a great effort, but the whole Android experience smacks of attempting to be "Better than iOS", which, ironically, one day they may be IF they stop trying to be "Better than iOS" - the problem they have is that they compare themselves to Apple, instead of being a free spirit - independant of comparisons and "iPhone killer" nonsense.

    Do you see Apple trying to be like other brands? Yes - they pick out, morph and use the good parts that work, at times (they all do - all software is based on copying), but are they trying to look like Android? Would you want to learn how to cook a burger like MacDonalds do, when you own a family run steak house?

    Android and iOS couldn't be more different. iOS is adding more Android functionality than Android is adding iOS functionality. Google and Apple are more than content with their differences.
