The iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, and iPhone Mini rumors say the iOS 7 interface will be “black, white, and flat all over.”
The Apple iPhone Mini, which is the long rumored cheaper version of the iPhone, will feature colors including navy, gold-orange, white, and gray, or possibly white, pink, green, blue, and yellow-orange. The signature black will be reserved for the high end iPhone 5S and iPhone 6.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S rumors say the next generation iPhones will likely be launched during the autumn and summer, respectively. The Apple iPhone rumors say the iPhone 5S will start taking orders on June 20th and ship out in July.
Some say the June release rumor of the Apple iPhone 5S is causing cell carriers to delay their 4G plans:
“The operator had originally planned to switch on superfast mobile broadband in cities in June, but said on Tuesday it would wait until August or September. The Silicon Valley giant [meaning Apple] had been expected to introduce an updated version, the iPhone 5S, that will work at the new frequencies in June, but it was reported last month it had been pushed back because of manufacturing delays.”
Besides delays, Apple fans might be distressed about future plans for the iOS 7 interface being featured in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5S. The iOS 7 update in the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 is being described as “black, white, and flat.”
The lock screen will change from the traditional grid to round black buttons. App icons will be flatter and matte colored. The apps will themselves redesigned to be more uniform and black and white.
Gone are the days of the shiny gradient curves highlighted by shadows as inspired by Steve Jobs. This is the modern look that Jony Ive, Apple’s senior vice president of industrial design, has cooked up for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6. It’s almost as if Apple is in mourning for Steve Jobs. Or perhaps Jony Ive is trying to copy the style of the Windows Phone 8, which also features simple design aesthetics?
