And just so there’s no revisionist history, it died because Jony Ive took over iOS UI design and decided software interfaces should look like Swiss posters, then Apple informed top apps that they need to redesign to match iOS 7 in order to be featured in the App Store ever again. https://t.co/t6CC0obGfr

I’ve told this story before, but after iOS 7 was debuted at WWDC my company’s Apple rep told us we would have to redesign to be flat by the fall or we wouldn’t be featured. We had to drop everything and rework the whole app just to stay in Apple’s good graces.

“Upgrading” from an X to an XR gets you more day-to-day benefits than getting an XS due to plus-size UI layout (more text/photos/tweets on screen at once) but without a Max-size behemoth to hold, not to mention THREE more hours of battery than the XS! https://t.co/rrEERs6HXm
