When I first saw preview images of iOS 7, I knew I would hate it. The new look and layout seemed clumsy and amateurish. Now, the new OS is installed on my iPhone and iPad, and I don’t hate its new look. In fact, I like it, though that doesn’t mean our budding relationship is perfect.

The biggest and most controversial change in iOS 7 has been the new flat design and basic color scheme. Throwing out the older skeuomorphic style, Apple has adopted a minimalist approach with bare-bones icons, folders, and controls. At first glance, the new look appears too simplistic, almost as if it were created by a child, as some critics complained, and not by Apple design guru Jony Ive.

But the new design has definitely grown on me. It’s simple but not simplistic. The icons and folders look cleaner than their older counterparts. There’s a certain appeal to them that I didn’t think I’d appreciate.
