Layout encompasses much more than just how UI elements look on an app screen. With your layout, you show users what’s most important, what their choices are, and how things are related. Depending on the device your app is running on—and on the device’s current orientation—your layout may vary.
As you continue to explore, you begin to discern the main themes of iOS 7:
- Deference. The UI helps users understand and interact with the content, but never competes with it.
- Clarity. Text is legible at every size, icons are precise and lucid, adornments are subtle and appropriate, and a sharpened focus on functionality motivates the design.
- Depth. Visual layers and realistic motion heighten users’ delight and understanding.
Think of apps as being divided into the following three types:
- Standard. The app contains only standard, uncustomized UI elements provided by UIKit.
- Custom. The app presents a completely custom UI that doesn’t include any UIKit UI elements.
- Hybrid. The app contains a mix of standard and custom elements, including standard elements that you customized using UIKit tinting and appearance-customization APIs.
