Apple MacRumors has collected a few interesting quotes from people in the know about iOS 7. John Gruber: "What I've heard: iOS 7 is running behind, and engineers have been pulled from OS X 10.9 to work on it." It's going to be a "significant system-wide UI overhaul". It will apparently make people who love rich textures "sad". I honestly can't wait - I wonder what Apple's designers've got cooking for us.

Engineers != designers

As we (hopefully) all know, code abstraction/conciseness lessens the closer we get to the front end: "Make it look like blah if the user woofs, but only if the user barks in Bulgaria on every nth Tuesday of months not ending with 1 or maybe n. Occasionally."

Cut my legs off & call me "Shorty," but I don't see how throwing engineers at design problems can accelerate a release.
