Apple will Ship iOS 7 on September 18 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

It’s been six years since Apple came up with an Operating System. Now that it has redesigned it closer to the heart’s desire and termed it “iOS 7” one may ask a legitimate question: was it worth it? Back in the sweltering heat of June when the whole plan got off its feet, there was a great deal of criticism from various quarters. The crowd of designers took to the online environment and complained to their heart’s content about everything from typographical errors to transparency to icon inferiority. 

The most prominent transformation is the font. As compared to the iOS 6, the iOS 7 has a slimmer more stylish font. In fact, it is very sleek and lithe in its design. Called the Helvetica Neue Ultra Light, it is difficult to decipher or detect and has been condemned by users for its illegibility. 

Font size and shape has always been a crucial element in the design and makeup of a gadget. Besides, Apple’s lingo is based on this key feature. Many symbols have been replaced by textual logos. However, there are icons in iOS 7 and all is not lost.  But the impression has been a bad one and the judgment is one of guilty. 

Craig Federighi, Apple ’s SVP of Software Engineering, said, ”iOS 7 is completely redesigned with an entirely new user interface and over 200 new features, so it’s like getting a brand new device, but one that will still be instantly familiar to our users. Next month we’ll be shipping our 700 millionth iOS device, and we’re excited about what our hundreds of thousands of iOS developers are doing to bring great new features to their apps.”

Basically, the iOS 7 is specifically designed for the iPads, iPod touch and iPhones. It will be available on Wednesday, September 18th. With such unworthy comments already filling the airwaves, is it any wonder that when it finally comes on the scene the reception will be tepid.
