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.

Apple keep the same well proven UI: iOS is boring, Android is so much advanced with live tiles, widgets and more eye candy.

Apple change the UI: it's all about bling bling.

Some are shameless as soon as it is about Apple.

Comparing an OS (iOs) with a potato (android).

* A Java VM over a Linux kernel... versus an almost proprietary version of C that needs an extremely slow message passing library for communication betweens its objects, and running on a BSD kernel.

Oh, and a COMPULSORY proprietary version of C. You are a bad boy if you would prefer any sort of alternative, and may be punished.


* An inconsistent UI?

Have you ever used an iPhone or do you only dream of some day being given one? iOS is the absolute master of inconsistence. All apps all look totally different, option menus are in different places, back buttons are in different places if they exist at all, app preferences are in different places...

The only thing consistent in an iPhone is that all the devices have looked exactly the same for years, whether you like them or not, that the home screen is nothing but a sea of rounded square icons, whether you like that or not, and that you are stuck with Apple's keyboard and Apple's browser whether you like it or not.


Apple was exciting. Now it is VERY boring. And limited.

Actually the model of having a JIT based environment for the userspace is as old as OS/400 (1988).

A solution not only adopted in Android, but also in some Windows versions and Plan 9/Inferno.

So Android is based on a 1988 concept, while iOS still follows a 1975 one, guess who is more modern.
