Neutrality

MG Siegler responds to the iOS 7 design update on the iCloud.com beta:

The problem is that it makes OS X (even Mavericks) look even more out of place now.

I disagree. I think OS X has looked very neutral since Leopard;1 iOS, on the other hand, is only beginning to look neutral with iOS 7. Perhaps it’s just me, but I don’t see something like this as more “in place” than the current OS X interface. I wouldn’t mind seeing OS X in Helvetica Neue, though, as retina displays encroach further into Apple’s lineup (it would make this site look at home, after all).


  1. Aside from the encroachment of linen, leather, etc. in the Lion days, all of which Mavericks removes. ↩︎
