Apple unveiled iOS 7, the software’s biggest redesign since the debut of the original iPhone. While the heavy rumored Apple direction towards a flatter design, the current system fans could be shocked by the design overhaul. Personally, I hate the new UI, Ditching an iconic design elements for very forgettable and cheap rip-offs of Android, Windows Phone, WebOS, and Cydia tweaks, is definitely something I’m not sold into.
