Angajatii Apple lucreaza ore suplimentare pentru a finaliza iOS 7 si a elimina “mostenirea” lasata de catre Scott Forstall

  Astazi v-am spus ca iOS 7 ne va aduce noi aplicatii Mail si Calendar, dar si faptul ca schimbarile cerute de catre Jony Ive necesita foarte mult timp pentru implementare, iar lansarea din septembrie a iOS 7 este nesigura. Intr-o incercare de a aduce sistemul de operare cat se poate de repede pe piata, cei de la Apple au reorganizat echipa ce dezvolta iOS 7, astfel ca ingineri ce lucrau la OS X 10.9 lucreaza acum la noia versiune a iOS,  iar o buna parte dintre ei depun chiar si ore suplimentare pentru a definitiva proiectul.

iOS 7 is so significant a re-imagining of Apple’s mobile operating system that the company is mustering additional engineering resources to get it out the door in time for a preview at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. ources who declined to be named because they are forbidden to talk publicly about Apple’s plans tell AllThingsD that the company has been “borrowing” engineers from the OS X 10.9 team as part of an effort to double down on iOS 7. “Yes, yes — it’s essentially a repeat of the iPhone/Leopard scenario,” one source said, referring to Apple’s 2007 decision to pull engineers from OS X 10.5 to work on iPhone. “Not as much of a fire drill, though. It will ship on time.”

  Jony Ive a cerut echipelor sale sa modifice foarte multe aspecte ale iOS-ului, iar elementele skeumorfice sunt primele care vor fi date uitarii. Scott Forstall era un fan al skeumorfismului, iar acest lucru a insemnat implementarea in interfata aplicatiilor a unor elemente grafice pe care le vedem in obiectele din lumea reala, exemple bune fiind: foaie galbena de hartie a aplicatiei Notes, elementele din piele ale aplicatiei Calendar sau rafturile din lemn ale NewsStand sau ale aplicatiei iBooks.

“Put it this way,” said one source who’s been briefed on iOS. “You know Game Center’s green felt craps table? Well, goodbye, Circus Circus.” Not a surprise, really. With Scott Forstall — an advocate for flashy, skeumorphic design and its stiched-leather and faux wood grain flourishes — now gone from Apple, and Ive in an expanded role, the current and former Apple employees I’ve spoken to say iOS 7 was destined for a new coat of paint. As one said, “Sounds like a much-needed ‘deForstallization.’” Which is not to say that the design of iOS 7 is entirely about removing skeuomorphic gloss.

  Jony Ive va elimina elementele grafice copilaresti din iOS, va readuce bunul gust si simplitate in sistemul de operare al celor de la Apple, insa ramane de vazut cata lume va aprecia schimbarile. multa lume cere  modificari radicale ale design-ului sistemului de operare, dar nu pentru ca actualul design ar fi urat, ci pentru ca el este invechit. Apple a impementat destul de putine schimbari de design ale interfatei iOS-ului, clasicul Springboard nu se va schimba, insa iconitele vor fi diferite si interfata lor va demonstra munca depusa in ultimele luni de catre inginerii Apple.
