Looking Back at the iOS 6 Maps UI

    I'm with you. The flat look has certainly grown on me, but not enough. 99% is against me on this one, but I think they could have refreshed iOS without dropping its entire aesthetic.

    Ease up the shading, gradients and shadows, reduce texture usage or make its use less intense, remove some minuscular details on icons… it could've looked great.

    Edit: the more I look at that screenshot… damn. It's gorgeous.

      I think they nailed it with the Yosemite redesign. Would love to see the same style applied to iOS.
