    Why does iOS 8 have plain text for buttons (accessibility option does not count) unlike Yosemite which still uses actual buttons to indicate buttons?

    Wouldn't make sense for iOS to adopt Yosemite-style UI buttons in the near future for better consistency across platforms?

    If you remember ios had buttons only before ios 7.. But they changed this style.. They can have buttons on a Mac because it's a large screen and makes sense , but on a mobile OS I think it's a fresh look.. You can toggle button shapes though , but won't give you the same feel then..

    Sometimes even I wonder if they could have done something different with buttons on ios

    The buttons in iOS also act in place of titlebars, and because iOS apps have no need for titlebars.

    Different environment I suppose.
