    Not to add to all the complaining but this really bothers me...

    Every single app now has an insanely massive title about what app you're using... How does a company that understands the visual hierarchy of importance screw something up so massively. My eyes are drawn to this massive title constantly, and it's everywhere.

    This is seriously disturbing D: I hope the new OSX isn't like this.

    It's like deja-vu as all the folks installing today complain about the same things we complained about months ago when the beta period started.

    Yeah, the big bold titles are unnecessary. I'm still not sure what Apple was thinking. Them's the breaks though.

    Yeah. It sucks. I blame some of the people on these forums.

    I noticed. Clear where Apple's initial inspiration came from:

    Present in a few places, but not as many as iOS.

    It’s carrying over from Apple Music, which is also terrible.

    So now the whole OS is terrible. Consistency.

    Not really sure how larger titles in some apps make a whole OS terrible.

    Some people get very stressed at very small changes. I seriously wonder how they get through large life changes, when a font upsets them so much.

    Apparently the headers are large to accommodate the iPhone X's sensor notch.

    Yeah I logged in JUST to complain about this. I feel like my Dad with the font on XXlarge. Why do I need a giant "Messages" in messages. I know its ****ing messages I clicked on it!!!

    It seems like a small thing but it takes up half the screen. I think Apple lost it with this one.

    Are you actually using Messages, or just admiring it? Messages opens to the last message thread open and the title scrolls into the bar if you scroll at all in the recipient list.

    I hate it when Apple does stuff that isn't better. Should have been clear during the beta that the font was bothersome but they stuck to their guns.

    I know its not a huge deal. But Apple usually get the usability and design right on these things. Its distracting to me now sure why.

    What is the point on the huge Font there? It doesnt improve anything and takes away from screen real estate.

    Maybe.. that's why I added bothersome in the next sentence. It bothers me to be blasted by a 1998 bold font whenever I open certain apps.

    The screen is smaller than the 6+, 6S+, 7+ and 8+ plus so, probably not, no.

    Yet the icons on the dock have no text showing what they are. Good thing it shows Messages in large font when I open the messages app since I have that icon on my doc. I wouldn’t know what app I’m in without. /s

    Headings for different sections of an app is one thing (Music: library, playlists, artists, etc.) But Having it for just the sake of it like in Messages is unnecessary. Neither heading case needs the large obnoxious font.

    Tim and Jonathan's eyesight isn't what it once was, clearly. They should go in for new prescriptions.

    That said, there's all sorts of visual missteps being found in the iOS -
