期待正式推出的 iOS 7

或許,吹毛求疵也好、求好心切也好、愛之深責之切也行,但請不用過度擔心 iOS 7 (當然也無須瘋狂地批判著還是 Beta 版供開發人員試用的 iOS 7。

The Loop 的 Jim Dalrymple 提到

There are a few things you need to remember about iOS 7. First, it’s nowhere near finished in terms of design or functionality. Apple engineers stopped adding or changing the operating system before WWDC so they had a stable build to show during the keynote. It’s not done.

Daring Fireball 的 John Gruber 也說了

iOS 7 is so far from done that maybe there is a story here, in that Apple has a mountain of work ahead to get iOS 7 ready for actual release this fall (presumably, coincident with the release of new iPhone and iPad devices). But to judge iOS 7 beta 1 as you would a release version is silly.

有時候會想,先前發表的 iOS 7 無論呈現什麼模樣,都會引起許多使用者的討論、批評和建議,這應該都是吹毛求疵、求好心切、愛之深責之切。

Apple 一直是少數無懼改變的公司之一,從 68k 麥金塔到 PowerPC、再到 Intel,就產品的角度而言,步調是蠻快的,從好幾個版本的 OS System 到 OS 8/9,然後是 OS X,再到 OS X (Intel only),而 Mac OS 介面從 2D 到 3D (約在 OS 8 時),然後是像水果般甜美的 Aqua 風格,再陸續轉變成更細膩、更一致的風格…

前陣子在和 Antony 的討論時,他說到:

Apple does focus on “looking forward”, and not afraid on scraping designs/systems not suitable.

我覺得是很中肯的!讓我們期待正式推出的 iOS 7。
