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.
