Since the launch of the new Apple mobile system on the web every day increases the flow of comments on the revised design of the OS. Most of the attention attracted by new application icons iOS. Many changes have taken to heart, while others simply refuse to believe that iOS 7 – indeed creation of designers Apple.
And, as it turns out, the latter may well be right. There is quite understandable reasons for this strange kind of icons and contradictory system design. In fact, the main work on the design of the OS is still ahead.
Matthew Panzarino from The Next Web argues that he had heard from his sources about the actual circumstances in which the created icons iOS 7. According to him, Jonathan Ive applied for the development of the appearance of the icons to the Marketing Team Apple, which is engaged in advertising.
“As we know, the chief designer of Apple applied for the creation of a palette of colors and the appearance of the icons iOS 7 in the marketing department of the company. And the work they have done has been transferred to different applications of the design team, which finalized before the end of the icons on the basis of palettes created by marketers. “
Panzarino is trying to say that the work on the design of icons between the teams developing applications had little or no communication. For example, the developers of the Post did not know about the work of the team Safari. All this has led to some inconsistencies in the appearance of the icons in iOS 7.
The good news is that work on the system is not over yet. Panzarino describes the current beta of iOS 7 as a “preliminary draft” of the new platform, and says that the work of designers and other responsible people from the team of system development continues. It is possible embodiment of the operating system shown in WWDC, – even beta, but something something earlier.
“Like many other aspects of the system icons iOS 7 and their appearance in the process of finalization. I do not know exactly, but presumably be followed by a series of changes and revisions of existing inconsistencies in the system, such as different gradients on the icons and text styles on the home screen. “
Presenting the new OS, Tim Cook said that iOS 7 is the biggest change in the history of the iPhone, and since the conference was shown only the first beta version, it is likely that its interface can be changed more than once.
If we take into account the fact that Apple’s designers worked on the system before October this direction led by Jonathan Ive, then it is a total recycling of everything done by them in a record six months. Obviously, Ive given up everything that was done to him, and for six months has created an entirely new design. The term is too small, and it is too early to talk about the end result.
The next 3-4 months will be in the iOS 7 testing and debugging stage, and then we will see the finished product
