We already showed you an icon comparison of iOS 6 and iOS 7, but now developer Mpow has put together a comparison of the different UI elements in the operating systems.

Taking a look at the comparisons, you can really see how Apple stripped away a lot of the textures, gradients and gloss from iOS in favor of a more "flat" interface.

What do you think of the changes?

How about Apple try something new, innovate? Give us options, such as themes and do this without forcing us to jail break the phones.

Apple copy Google now. How pathetic. Why do they mess with UI instead of fixing their bugs?

Overall the subtle outlines and "thin" font makes it difficult to pick out what you need/want to do, especially at a glance in bright light. Overall more contrast and delineation would allow a faster more accurate interaction. Further, eliminating metaphors in the "look" of an app built for a particular market segment can be problematic. It is well-known that these market segments will only shift away from the familiar way of doing things if the app is designed around the professional user's tried and true methods. Many times these UI/UX approaches are counter intuitive causing the user to get frustrated both in the amount of time to learn how to use it while also trying to adapt to an unfamiliar.

Yay! Regressive design! I love UI changes that make my interface look like it was from a decade ago or a Chinese mid-range knock-off!
