Apple "Sources have described iOS 7 as 'black, white, and flat all over'. This refers to the dropping of heavy textures and the addition of several new black and white user interface elements." I couldn't be happier.

I'm not sure why the voting down. I'm disturbed by some of the new website I've seen which have gone with these blocks, etc. I find them difficult to use and quickly spot what I'm looking for. I'm also sorry for color blind folks who in some cases aren't going to see much variation. Most things in nature and the world are textured, ripping out textures from interfaces seems as counter intuitive as overtexturing them. The pendulum is swinging too far!

How about we just start ripping out all this extra animation stuff that in some cases seems to interfere with responsiveness?
