With Apple’s 2013 WWDC this Monday I thought I’d take the time to share some of the things id like to see come out of the keynote. In my opinion seeing a new iPhone or iPhones announced seems unlikely considering Tim Cooke recently said that Apple’s year starts in October. Why release a new iPhone outside of that year! So lets get started….
Its more than obvious we’ll see iOS 7. The new Jony Ive designed OS is rumored to be “Black and white and flat all over.” With the many flat themes that exist on cydia that are inspired by the rumored iOS 7 I personally have grown to love and except a more minimal soft look.
As far as what I’d like to see in the new os is quick access to common settings in the settings menu. Apple is big on making things simple. Is it “simple” to open settings>general>iTunes Wifi Sync just to sync wirelessly (which by the way has never worked for me since it was introduced). Nor is it simple to go two menus deep to disable wifi. Items the user doesn’t need or find useful to them should be removeable. Spotlight on a Mac works fine. It sits in the corner of your screen and is there, on the iPhone it’s one page left of the homescreen and can be annoying if you swipe one page to many. I have no interest in stocks nor do I download magazines the stock and newstand apps should natively be removeable or at least can be hidden. The lockscreen could be customizable. Why they haven’t thought to make the clock and lock banners the same color as the device they’re on is a curious one. All-in-all there’s many rumored changes comming to iOS 7 at the hands of Jony Ive. Here’s to hopeful optimism in the wake of WWDC MMXIII!
