According to 9to5Mac, the iOS 7 will abandon heavy textures to provide a more unified and consistent interface with solids and gray text white.

Jony Ive, the senior vice president of industrial design at Apple, is responsible for managing the iOS 7.

The report cites sources describing the operating system as “black, white, and flat all over.”

Ive explained his disapproval of the texture-heavy (skeuomorphic) of the iOS in software design meetings with Apple’s iOS designers.

Sources say he has edited the design of the upcoming operating system, while maintaining the basics of the Apple iOS.

The home screen will reportedly have a less transparent design and black bands, while keeping the “slide to unlock”.

Apple is also expected to slightly revise the design of the Notifications Center and bring new widgets.

The iOS 7 will be presented on June 10 during the opening keynote at the WWDC.
