IOS 7 Could Sport Flatter, Less Glossy Look, Black And White UI

Apple is set to unveil the latest installment of iOS 7 at its Worldwide Developer Conference coming this June 10. Apple announced the event stating it "can’t wait to acquire the recent versions of iOS and Operating System (OS) X" into the hands of developers.

We've heard that iOS 7 will likely sport a flatter design but we're now also hearing that the UI will revolve around black and white interface elements. The design teams behind the recent iOS are planning on dropping heavy textures and moving away from the skeuomorphic philosophy, which former Senior VP of iOS Scott Forstall was so fond of.

The glossy surfaces and deep shadows will likely be changed in favor of a cleaner and flatter see - for instance the Notes app, which is reminiscent of a physical yellow pad will feature a white background.

The lockclassy screen will likely see a design change, too.

Apple is also working on a cleaner Notification center as well and could feature recent widgets (aside from Stocks and Weather) and possibly a quickly-reachable toggles section for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.

Vimeo and Flickr integration correct into the Operating System (OS) could be on the way along with a dedicated FaceTime app for the iPhone.

Most of the pre-installed system apps will be overhauled. The Weather app, for instance, will include animated weather conditions such as rain, snow, etc. The Game Center will lose its green felt background and will probably come with a recent icon. The Newsstand will shed the wood trimming for a recent texture, like the one on Operating System (OS) X's app dock.

We won't have to wait too long to see the real thing ourselves. Apple is poised to show off iOS 7 in a couple of weeks and release it this descend along with the next iPhone hardware with frequent iOS 7 betas likely filling the months in between.
