London: Apple's decision of redesigning its latest iOS 7 is speculated to present a ''black, white and flat'' look all over.
Jonathan Ive who became in charge of the look and feel of the Apple hardware and software last year, is reportedly not fond of skeuomorphic heavy designs, which currently dominate the iOS.
According to a BBC report, the latest design of the Apple iOS is speculated to be devoid of the textures on its notification panel and gloss or shadows on its icons and apps but the corners will remain rounded.
Apps like Mail, Calendar and Maps are suggested to have a more unified look. Additionally all the apps will share similar white base with its own unique colour scheme.
The report added that the green felt from Game Center and the wooden shelves from Newsstand have also been removed.
Apple is expected to unveil the new iOS 7 at WWDC 2013 that begins June 10.
The challenge for Apple is to balance its users'' need for something new with the familiarity to the system its hundreds of million users have, the report added.
