iOS 7 looks familiar… Can’t quite put my finger on it

Chris.millr.org: In 2010, Microsoft announced a bold, company-wide initiative to re-brand their design language based on Metro traffic signs. The idea was to stress content over chrome. To be authentically digital. No fake leather. No bevels. Just you, your stuff, and fluid motion to give you context of where everything was. (iOS 7, Software, Windows Phone)

Oh I do hope Microsoft sue Apple over this. I don't normally agree with suing over this kinda stuff but because of how Apple have acted over the last few years let them have it.

I'll admit it does have a very non-ios feel, its also the vision of the hardware designer. The previous software designer is who is respnsible for ios 1- ios6. When their lead industrial designer was appointed software designer, he mention how he hated the faux-reality textures, so this is his result. It just so happens to like most other things out there because its the new modern software. When it comes to computers Windows took from Apple anyways. Either way doesn't matter. Apples software has better animations/transitions and help make it feel overall more robust.

Windows Phone basically stole the original iPhone design in each screenshot. Then iPhone as made it even less cluttered after.

The weather layout for example in the windows phone is basically the original apple app.

Everyone is going to copy everyone at some point, so no sense arguing it really. There is no denying that Android 2.X was an evolution of the older iPhone generation.
