iOS 7 Design Details
Let’s get into the design details of Apple iOS 7.
Flat Graphic Design
Since Apple iOS 7 is a complete redesign, several changes in the design components will stand out. In iOS 7 – the graphic design is more flat. The UI itself is not flat, but rather a multi-plane 2.5D zooming user interface. But you will notice a lack of bevel that was so apparent in previous Apple operating systems.
Apple iOS 7 Font
The official Apple iOS 7 font is using Helvetica Neue. Originally, Helvetica Neue Lt was used in iOS 7 Beta, but Apple heard the cries of it’s people and updated the font to the bolder version of Helvetica Neue.
iOS 7 Color Palette
Here is the iOS 7 color palette. A drastic difference from iOS 6. SO much cheerier and bright.
Thanks to Thomas at Dribble for providing the iOS 7 RGB values.
What is the inspiration for the color palette?
The Fox is Black suggests that the new color scheme for iOS 7 is from the original 1977 Apple logo, designed by Rob Janoff. Could this be the inspiration? Possibly!
WWSJD – What Would Steve Jobs Do?
So like anything since the untimely death of Steve Jobs – the question about iOS 7 that remains is what would Steve Jobs do – or WWSJD? Everything is just so pretty, and of course in typical Apple style clean and functional. Do you think Steve Jobs would approve?
