    I look forward to great developers creating new and unique versions of their apps for iOS 7.0, most mockups i've seen lately are almost exactly the same as Apple's updated apps. With time I hope developers create their own improved versions based on Apple's apps and not just copy them.

    A good example is Tweetbot which for previous iOS versions created a really nice app. Lets see what they're able to do from now on.

    Did you know: Jony Ive only texts people at exactly 9:41am.

    looks good but why does the contacts icon have a gradient?

    It's funny, everybody wants the avatar (form factor) to be a circle instead of a rectangle. Just look at most of the WhatsApp redesigns on Dribbble. But I have to admit that I also think the circle is way prettier than the rounded rectangle.

    I actually think Android's whatsapp is more superior than apple's.

    Plus the thing I want the most is to differentiate between Group chats and individual chats better.

    I actually like it when apps conform to the OS's look and feel. Familiarity brings ease of use.

    I agree with you but the beauty of iOS is the diversity of apps (always in sync with the OS) and the fact that most create unique stuff for their apps. It would be boring if all apps looked like Settings or Messages.

    Take for example Twitter a few years ago, they added the pull to refresh feature while they could have just added a refresh button like Apple had in their Mail app, now the pull to refresh is almost being used in all apps because of Twitter.

    Facebook added the ability to swipe up or down on a photo to dismiss it and now many apps have been starting to implement this feature (Again Tweetbot was one of the first apps I saw added this to their app)

    This are just some small things that other developers designed and implemented on top of Apple's designs and became a system wide improvement.

    Im guessing you will only see release time updates from "big devs" for iOS 7. While Apple is making a push for everyone to update to the new style I am guessing only about 5% will for the release and maybe about 30% a year after. Keep in mind more than half of the apps on the store only built for the 3.5 inch screen (which is a bigger deal than this redesign update) and thats about 2 years old now.


    Back on topic your mockup looks good you do any design work on actual apps?

    Thank you. This was just a mockup, I'm not a developer but I'm about to major in Industrial Design this fall.

    Looks good, but I still think I prefer the one I saw here.

    Check out others at the site while you're there, most of them look great and definitely fit the iOS 7 look

    I'm surprised that Whatsapp latest update for iPhone didn't have any change of design at all.

    They cannot change to iOS7 specific design until iOS7 is officially released to Public ... also if you see Whatsapp prior update cycle on iOS, it has been terrible ...

    remember the time when they had to stretch the app for iPhone 5 screen ... wow those were some looooong months
