Apple’s upcoming iOS 7 will look more like Windows 8 than iOS currently does.
Apple’s iOS 7 release with Windows 8 Blue Update?
I’ve still got hope that Sir Jonathan Ive will come up with something that doesn’t look like a direct clone.
I think it’s disingenuous for people to pretend like Apple (and Google for that matter) are not copying Microsoft’s design style.
I mean… of course they are, anyone with eyes can see that.
It’s not hard to imagine people from Apple (and Google) getting their hands on a Windows Phone or Windows 8 device and thinking “wow… our design looks like crap compared to this”.
From Microsoft’s perspective it kind of sucks and I feel sorry for them. They don’t often get a big win and this design style was, for a while a least, distinctly Microsoft.
From a users perspective though, it has to be a good thing.
If one company comes up with an innovation that inspires other companies to do the same then as consumers we have more choice and better products to choose from.
