Hey guys! Today I made a little exercise to understand iOs 7 better.
After it was announced two days ago I was trying to decide do I love it or hate it.
Of cause I agree about awful icons and some mistakes in UX. I dislike new command center because Apple made it just as people asked, but they could find better and simpler way to switch off bluetooth and wi-fi. I'm not sure if somebody need access to calculator and alarm from any screen. I don't.
There are a lot of things we can decry, but the most interesting thing for me is how world of iOs apps will look after few month. How new style of iOs will change apps that we use every day?
I decided not to wait for first updates and try how popular apps could look in new world. I didn't want to improve usability or change any functions. I wanted to try what will work with new visual language and what won't work. I wanted to feel where interface design will go in next few month (or years?).
That's what I realized working on this concept:
STYLE AND COLORS
I love new more content oriented style. Photos edge to edge, blurred bars. It will let us use whole screen more efficient and make bigger accent on a content.
I tried to use colours from current Instagram design - blue navigation bar and grey tab bar. It was possible , but I felt that it's wrong. white works much better with new design principles, it makes more sense of content. Of cause I'll continue to work with any colours, but I decided to use white here. I think making colourful but harmonious semitransparent interface will be my next experiment.
I think thin fonts without shadows would be a problem for people with poor eyesight and won't work on some cases. I used Helvetica Thin instead of Regular, I like how it looks but my mom won't appreciate it.
I just love them. I think they will add some freshness to our iPhones. At least for some time. I spent just a bit time to make or found these icons. It's just an exercise) But I'm sure I'll have a lot fun designing thin icons for my projects.
So, I think I like iOs 7. It has some issues, terrible icons and really cool new style that won't let us get bored for a long time!
Let me know what you think.

I'm sure when the time comes the app will look different than this but I think you nailed it. Thin is cool and very sleek, but it's hard to tell if it will really take off. All the thin icons remind me so much of Windows Phone so I hope it doesn't turn to that. Great work though! I love the edge to edge photos.
It looks really nice! Although I don't want to steel your thunder it probably also has something to do that this is the first iOS7 style app I've seen that uses a large (filtered) image instead of text/icon only.
@Andrew Korytsev Great job on thinking through the pros and cons on the new UI. Have been playing with it on a 5 and a 4 for the past day or so & I mostly really like it. You can imagine that they will be nailing down a slew of details before the public release with the 6 (or 5s), so I think this is a great move.
Nice icons! Well done :)
Yes! I have the same thoughts about iOS7 after few days :) Concept looks awesome!
Good work! Agree with @Andrew. We need to start using our imagination
Don't forget Instagram only shows 612px images in their feed so you're doomed for white margins on the side! Very nice translation though!
I love the thin icons, a great refresh. Also the end to end images look great and puts content first.
This is exactly why I can't wait for a couple of months after iOS 7 has been out for the general public. The UX of iOS 7 is so refined and well-thought out that with Apple pushing for all app developers to update their UIs to follow the new HIG, iOS 7 is just going to be immense. This new direction is so refreshing -- I'm really excited about it.
Great work on this, @Andrew Korytsev. Great work, indeed!
Awesome job! I tried to redesign Readability app – http://dribbble.com/shots/1121519-Readability-iOS7-Redesign

I love this, they should really do something close to this design.
