Apple’s Jony Ive preparing to copy Metro
Will Appleâ€™s stretched leather â€œolde Westyâ€ look turn into a clean, modern design.
The BGR reports that Appleâ€™s executive in charge of iOS, after the ousting of Scott Forstall, is set to overhaul the look of the dated OS to bring a more Modern Look.
According to the Timeâ€™s sources Iveâ€™s iOS makeover will incorporate â€œclean edges, flat surfacesâ€ to â€œreplace the textures that are all over the place right now,â€ making â€œsoftware designed to look like real-life textures, such as linen or felt, is expected to become a thing of the past.â€
It is almost as of iOS will be catching the â€œAuthentically Digitalâ€ bug, isn’t it?
Of course Apple would simply be following a trend â€“ Google has already adopted these design principles led by Mathias Duarte, with their OS and apps concentrating a lot more on text and white spaces rather than ridiculous graphics.
I guess if the future is going to end up looking like the future even Apple will have to come along eventuallyâ€¦
