    Default Flat Design in iOS 10?

    Do you think they will keep the current design or move to a new one for iOS 10?

    Hopefully a new one that allows customisation.

    I hated it when it first came out but it's definitely grown on me haha. I would like to see a bit more contrast though to help separate and highlight things better. I also like when text backgrounds had the artificial paper texture, the plain white is a bit too plain.

    Hopefully there will be some cool retro throwback as well to celebrate the 10 yr anniversary.

    I hear possible changes, but probably the same yucky flat theme. I still don't like it. I would rather have a new version of iOS 6. I like textures and shadows.

    Have to agree with everything you said. My feelings are the same.

    I didn't like the flat look at first but it didn't take long for me to get used to it. Now I like it just fine.

    I actually prefer the flat look.

    I wouldn't be surprised (maybe even delighted) to see circle app design. They use these "bubble" shapes a lot more and I think it would be a nice over haul for something new to look at.

    Similar to this... Click image for larger version.

    Not that big though. Same size as what we got now. But look similar to those.

    I couldn't agree more! I hope they don't do anything even remotely close to this. I'm sure they would test all of their icons and their user interface look thoroughly so hopefully we have nothing to worry about. If anything like this does happen, I am jailbreaking for sure so I can reverted back to something more flator material design looking.

    All I hope is that hey don't go the gawd awful "material" design route that Google took. OMG is that horrible. I never understood why they thought floating a button over top of things was a good Idea. All it did was get in the way.

    I am also not a fan of the flat look either. It just is way to bland for me.

    I hate the flat look. It's cold with no character. I like the iOS 6 look better than anything since.

    iOS 6 looks dated and bad. Sorry, but the fake leather and paper and all these things that just didn't work and caused the whole experience to deteriorate. Fake textures come off as cheap, whether they be plastic or on a screen. Yes, there are some things that still don't quite look right, but overall, iOS is beautiful the way it is three versions into this second generation.

    I have to agree with you. The old design is very dated. I never liked the textures even before iOS 7.
