Now that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s WWDC 2013 conference is just around the corner, it won’t be a surprise if we’re able to see new and stunning concept videos and images related to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s next mobile operating system – iOS 7. There have been rumors that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is planning a complete redesign of the iOS 7 and a move away from the so-called “skeuomorphic” look which the company has relied on to date. For those who don’t know, skeuomorphism means presenting digital objects that resemble real world objects. For example; the iBooks app resembles a book shelf, and the calendar comes with leather stitching. Well, for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), that worked great until now, but perhaps it’s time for Apple to introduce something more fresh.
Many people have started speculating what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would have in store for the next version of iOS and Mac OS X users. Apart from a few rumors, we now have a concept video developed by Simply Zesty’s art director, Philip Joyce, that shows off a new, redesigned flat user interface. The new icons and UI in general have less rounded edges and are flat. This concept video is based on rumors which have been floating around for a long time that iOS 7 might come with a revamped UI and flat design.
Now, let’s say if iOS 7 really comes with a new flat design, what would it mean for iOS App developers? Well, some might hurry to change their UI, or at least their icons. Since we don’t have any official details as of now, it’s too soon to speculate anything.
For now, just enjoy this amazing concept video. The annual developer’s conference is next month, and that’s where the Cupertino-based company will be unveiling the next version of iOS, among other announcements.
