iOS 7 is not so much a blank canvas as it is an empty space waiting to be filled. The only thing the new design language says you can’t do is make UI’s the way developers have been making them for the last six years.
Change is guaranteed, but the type of change is not; never is that more true than today. See, friction makes everything harder, both the good we can do, but also the unimaginably terrible. In our zeal to reduce friction and our eagerness to celebrate the good, we ought not lose sight of the potential bad.
We are creating the future, and “better” does not win by default.
