We’re now what we like to call ‘post-iOS 7,’ and as the dust settles on what can only be described as the biggest change to Apple’s iOS since multitasking was added, the response has been mixed.
It’s safe to say at this stage that not everyone is a fan of the way iOS 7 does things or, to be more accurate, how it looks.
With an altogether more colorful approach than previous versions of iOS, this seventh iteration is one that people either love or hate, and with app updates rolling out across the App Store as developers rush to accommodate the new interface paradigms, it’s clear that at this point there’s no going back for Apple’s design team.
With all this in mind, and with the voice of displeasure echoing across social media sites, we found ourselves wondering whether people had rushed to update their iPhones and iPads when it was officially released this past week, or whether some had decided that they would hold off, rather than jumping into the shark infested waters.
So, with that question burning a hole in our cold, black hearts we came up with the novel idea of a poll. Everyone likes polls, right?
So, the question is a simple one: Have you upgraded to iOS 7?, or have you decided to give it a miss – at least for now?
We are actually rather fond of iOS 7 and most of the changes that it brings with it. For the most part we find the interface something of a breath of fresh air, especially after years of using an iOS that had undoubtedly grown a little long in the tooth. That said, there’s a lot to dislike here if you happen to be someone who dislikes the flat look, even if the way iOS actually works is far from flat.
It’s still very early days for iOS, so we’ll have to wait and see how Apple grows its ideas over the coming point versions. Just don’t expect it to backtrack too far.
