Announced last week, iOS 7 has just entered the early beta stages, with plans for a commercial release this fall. Apple has posted plenty about the design of iOS 7, highlighting the new app icons and interior designs. If you peruse Apple’s website looking for iOS 7 information, you won’t find a single black and slate iPhone. All of the iOS 7 promotion is highlighted with a white and silver iPhone. Realizing that most folks cannot get their hands on iOS 7 and plenty of you own a black iPhone, we took to Photoshop to provide a gallery of what iOS 7 looks like on a black iPhone.
The theory behind selecting a black iPhone over a white iPhone was to remove harsh frames that were created between the apps and the display border. With the changes in iOS 7, there is an abundance of white space and the interior design of most of the apps like Notes, Reminders, Videos, Gamecenter, Photos and others are set on a white background. For those looking for the seamless look, you might find yourself picking up a white iPhone this fall. It’s also interesting to note that when Apple released the iPod touch 5th generation last year, not one had a display with a black border.*
Do you have a black iPhone? Based on these renderings, does the new operating system look better on a white & silver iPhone?
* Apple’s new low-cost iPod touch features the classic black & silver color combination.
