Apple Announces Schedule for iOS 7 'Tech Talks' Tour in U.S., Asia, and Europe

Back in April after tickets to its Worldwide Developers Conference sold out in just two minutes, Apple announced that it would be launching a series of Tech Talks later in the year, taking seminars and hands-on help to a number of cities around the world.

I can save you some money and sum this up.
How to iOS7 your apps:

1. Change all your icons into lines of text for people to read through, and make all your text a very light blue, 2pt font, and float them disjointedly in blinding white space, to make everyones eyeballs burst as they strain to read it.

2. Design your icons with a jumble of Flourescent Orange Yellow, and Pink, and randomize gradients all over them.

3. Use an assortment of graphical styles in your iconography, from 1px wide line art to solid fill shapes to some 1950s skeumorphic imagery to abstract disassociative non-linear progressivism with transgenic subordinate geometric proportionality from the future. Mix em up. All on one screen, if possible.

4. Only do any or all of this on about half your apps, and let the others be.



Shoot for inconsistency wherever possible. People love that.
