and their relation to iOS development.
Distracting wallpapers? Not on my iPhone.
Think about these words of Sir Jonathan Ive, responsible for Apple’s iconic design.
“You have to deeply understand the essence of a product in order to be able to get rid of the parts that are not essential.”
So black is my preferred theme.
If you think about more than just wallpapers you’ll quickly find out that simplicity would also be a nice feature for operating systems.
Every year users and developers all over the world are involved in the vicious circle of bugs and more or less successful attempts to fix them. If somebody would do a cost-benefit analysis of an update I’m not sure about the results.
The irony of this oxymoron is that simplicity can be quite difficult. It’s not about what you can add, but what you can remove.
Does it really make sense to develop what’s technically possible but meaningless in our everyday life? For people with special requirements nobody would call innovative ideas applesauce but there are tens of millions of users just wasting their time with useless features (and bugs).
Customers appreciate bug-free operating systems and apps.
With every iteration of an OS – wether it’s iOS, macOS, Android, or Windows – customers are faced with problems they experienced already years ago.
Apple, just follow Albert Einstein’s saying
Intellectuals solve problems
geniuses prevent them.
Keep it simple like my minimalist wallpaper and focus on finishing products, testing them extensively and delighting customers with bug-free features.
Thanks for taking your time.
