Just how flat will iOS 7 look?

Like many iPad and iPhone users we've been wondering what Jonathan Ive's involvement with the design of iOS 7 will mean. Ben Thompson makes some interesting points in his blog post entitled, 'Jony Ive is Not a Graphic Designer'. It's certainly worth reading.

Having spent considerable time with Microsoft's Windows Phone, I sincerely hope that iOS 7 does not have its super-minimalist look, visual fatigue sets in quickly for those who expect more than dull sans-serif fonts and flat coloured boxes.

I agree, not a fan of what the next iOS upgrade is expected to look like.

I'm a big thinker of, "If it's not broken don't fix it". I don't see what's really long with the way it looks now. Like you, I really hope they don't over-do it.

Iam suppose and I sincerely hope that iOS 7 does not have its super-minimalist look.
