PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Apple held its big keynote event thing at WWDC earlier this evening, but since I was away with friends I've had to read up on it later in the evening. The company announced iOS 7, OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and they gave a preview of the new Mac Pro. Especially the Mac Pro impressed me, and while iOS 7's new Holo/Metro-inspired theme looks messy and garish to me, I do commend Apple for finally breaking the mold. This news item will focus on iOS 7 - I'll dive into the Mac Pro and OS X 10.9 tomorrow (it's late here now).

All looks like very nice updates. No gimmicks, just solid useful features. A more unified look to apps and a visual refresh.
Will need to use it, but overall I'm not a huge fan of flat design as used in Android and Windows phone. When combined with busy interfaces, I find it quite confusing when nothing stands out, and it's difficult to distinguish presentation UI from functional UI. So personally I hope it isn't as flat as Android.

And my iPhone 4 will be getting the update (minus airdrop). Got that thing as a work phone when it came out 3 years ago, and it still runs the latest software.
