After Apple announced 20 "life-altering developments" at itsWorldwide Developers Conference this week—including a new Mac Pro and a redesigned iOS7—we were curious what you thought about the changes.
So yesterday we asked, specifically about that new mobile operating system, iOS7, which sports a flatter, more colorful aesthetic, and the bold new Mac Pro desktop computer design, which we think looks like a bathroom trash can. Here's what you said:
Overall, our readers like the changes! Thirty-four percent of the 680 respondents said they love the new iOS look, and 36 percent of you thought the new Pro was "cool." iOS7 looked "ugly" to only 18 percent of you; however, the new Mac Pro didn't fair quite as well, with 44 percent saying the cylindrical shape was either "ugly"— or looked liked a garbage can.
A full 30 percent of you wanted to try iOS7 before giving a verdict, which makes sense, considering how a mobile operating system is as much a "feel" thing as it is a look. We'll have to wait until the fall.
