    New Icons , Major iOS Revamp!
    One of the comments on the article. Yes enlightened commenter only look at one aspect and make a snap judgement we don't even know what else is being revamped and UI is part of that. I hate people like this. Wait till WWDC but from what I gather this person probably wouldn't be happy with whatever Apple announces.

    i completely agree people should wait but if this ends up being true then at first look/impression it looks too much like the same old thing

    people want changes, yes even something as simple as stock icons

    I think the reason we'll see comments like that, and continue to, is because of Apples history. year after year people feel let down by Apple because they know more can be done

    True true cause I used to be apart of that crowd LOL and I think part of the reason why the iPhone 3G was my last iPhone before the 5 because Apple seemed to be going at a glacial pace adding features I mean taking almost 3 years to add copy and paste!? But I'm happy being back on my iPhone and I've turned full Apple geek circle again like I was in 2008 LOL just got a MBP and airport express and I don't miss android at all.

    The problem with this "leak" screenshot is that anyone with a Jailbroken iPhone can make their own version of the icons blur the screen and then claim a leak. I'll just wait it's not much longer now

    here is actually what stock apps might look like....

    Personally not impressed if so. These are from the WWDC app so it may not look like this but wouldn't be surprised if it did. It's extremely bland in my opinion. While android, bb10 and ubuntu mobile also use a flat design, they have design elements that help spruce up the flatness

    Blackberry

    Android

    Notice the fluency in design on both? I am not a huge fan of the bb10 design but it is generally fluent and not as bland. Android does this even better. Even apps with white top bars use more color somewhere to balance the design. Not only is the WWDC app bland, it uses some 3dish elements and some flat ones which make it look out of place. For instance, on the top bar, you can switch pages by pushing in one side of the button. However the button itself looks out of place and bland. Pushing it in yields a very dark gray with shadow highlights. The gray is too dark and there is far to much grey/white in the app with little contrast. Also while gradients from the top bar and bottom bar were dramatically reduced, the gradients In the section headers are very noticeable.

    What I think was done right (and hope do Cary over) is the bottom bar and icons, and the keeping of shadows.

    What I think needs to change is the overuse of gray tones. Idk maybe I am just going crazy but I really think there is potential, but if this is what to expect, I feel like ios will actually be really bland. It literally looks like someone just took all the color, texture and gloss off of the current ios and didn't make any tweaks to balance the design.

    Of course this may not even be close to what ios7 looks like but it is the WWDC app so there's a fair chance it is.

    Agreed..... We will know for sure next week. With all the concepts out there it's anyone's guess until we see the real deal on June 10th

    WWDC 12 app was similar, didn't give anything away, not that there was anything to give away with iOS 6.

    Hopefully it looks nothing like that!

    I really don't care about having widgets. But, if they allowed widgets in iOS7,
    we don't have to use them if we don't want to. Some people don't care about
    reduced battery life. So let them have widgets.

    Apple will not do widgets, not like most people think of as widgets. Just like I know they wont do an SD card slot or a file manager. They will add "widgets" in the notification center like the Twitter, Facebook, Weather, etc. If Apple could get more people using Siri and Siri working better and doing more I think it would be better than widgets.

    I agree. Siri is a much better use of at a glance info if it can do more and faster. I like Siri and the idea behind it but more needs to be done with 3rd parties to work with Siri and to do that, apple is going to need to open up Siri to 3rd parties AND allow for default apps

    exactly Siri is so limited and it's frustrating. It will be interesting to see if they did anything with Siri this go round.

    Widgets do not kill battery life, please stop perpetuating that myth..

    Also, virtually everyone who jailbreaks their iPhone adds widgets, so obviously most people want them, just because a handful of people on tech sites do not, doesn't make it so.

    Just like with every other feature Apple has copied from the competition, it "sucks" and isn't necessary, until they announce it, then it's awesome and Apple invented it..

    Depends on the wiglets and how often they update. Stuff like one for music that isn't being used wont take up to much battery but something like system info that updates every 30 seconds-1 min will...

    I believe it is a myth based on fear. Truth is, everything uses battery power to some extent right? We pick and choose what we do with our phones to try to get the best battery life possible. A widget that updates every 15-30 minutes, or when you have your phone in use shouldn't cause more drain than a background push notification, and those are going off all the time on peoples phones. If someone wants to use a system info widget that's constantly updating that's up to them. I have 5 widgets on my iPhone now and I'm seeing the best battery life I've ever had. For all I know iWidgets was made by some kid in his spare time, certainly Apple could give us widgets that didn't cause any noticeable battery drain as well!? Every new feature I can think of Apple has added over the years has been optional, you can go into settings and turn off the notification center, and use those horrid old pop-ups if one wishes. so I at least wish they would give us the option so that those of us that want them can use them. People get so hung up on their dislike/hatred for Android that they seem to want Apple to keep limiting the functionality of the iPhone so that it doesn't dare mimic any of Android's features, truth is Android phones have some really useful stuff, and many of us would like to see them added to the iPhone so that they have that Apple polish.

    But anyway, I doubt we'll ever see them, it looks like all we are getting next week is some re-skinned icons, no real new functionality which the iPhone needs.. Hope they've kept the good stuff under wraps!
