Very soon, Apple will present to the public a new design of its mobile OS called iOS 7. This event will happen literally in a month, and many designers try to predict how the new design will actually look like.
Recently, information has surfaced on the net that the updated design will differ radically from the previous one, it will become more "flat" and devoid of realistic textures.
German designer Christian Liu decided to showcase his vision for the new look of iOS 7. He himself called it "lightweight, inspired by aluminum." The beloved shiny, glossy, three-dimensional icons, switches and other interface elements in his concept Christian replaced with flat shapes devoid of shadows and gloss.
In October 2012, the head of the iOS development department, Scott Forstall, left his post, who, together with Steve Jobs, developed the design of the first iOS, it used a lot of textures that repeated natural objects, volumetric, glossy icons. Forstall's place was taken by Jonathan Ive, who previously came up with the appearance and design of the iPhone, iPad, iMac. Ive is an adherent of minimalism in design, his iOS design will be maximally simplified, devoid of realism, it will become “flat”. Surely many users will not like the updated design.

The German Supreme Court on August 25 this year rejected Apple's appeal and invalidated the company's patent for "Slide-to-unlock" ("Unlock" in a localized version), according to the online edition VentureBeat. In fact, the verdict confirms the 2013 decision of the German Federal Patent Court

Someone Olivier Dud, a designer from France, like many, was very inspired by the news that the visual component of the interface of the new version of Apple's desktop OS will undergo drastic changes. And he tried to predict the appearance of the future OS X, starting from the fact that the corporate identity of the "seven" - light and "flat" will be taken as a basis
