Big typography, more cards, and less animation.
With the introduction of iOS 10, Apple has begun a significant shift away from its previous design language. Where before we were seeing thin, light typography, we’re now seeing heavy, large, emphatic titles. We’re seeing a shift from edge-to-edge elements towards a more card-based, spacious user interface.
Gentler visual effects have also made their way onto iOS — the first use of depth on the platform since iOS 6. In addition, animation and interaction have become more refined, considered, and subtle.
Apple has determined a significant part of the design trends over the past decade, not just on mobile, but on the web too. Their influence is undeniable. Back when iOS 7 was introduced, it took the design industry by storm and confirmed a new standard and style for user interface design. Android is having a similar effect having introduced their Material Design guidelines a couple of years ago.
In the most refined update in years, we’re going to look into the design changes introduced in iOS 10 and consider how they will have an impact on the current web design trends. Some websites are already beginning to implement these new styles and directions.
