iBooks, iTunes U get iOS 7 makeovers

Apps adopt look similar to Newsstand redesign

Following long after its iLife and iWork refreshes, Apple has updated the mobile iBooks and iTunes U apps to suit the look of iOS 7. Both apps have jettisoned the skeuomorphism of previous versions in favor of designs similar to the iOS 7 Newsstand. This includes elements like "flat" shelves, although iBooks continues to sport page-turning animations.

Apple has been relatively slow to bring its apps up to speed for iOS 7. The iLife and iWork updates took place well after iOS 7's September 18th launch, and Apple has been intermittently updating less important apps like Remote and Trailers. With the release of iBooks and iTunes U updates, most of Apple's core titles have been upgraded; all that remains are ones like Keynote Remote and iTunes Connect Mobile, which have been neglected for over a year or more and may never be revived.

    Ugh what's with the blurry buttons on the bottom? Seriously for all the crap about clean lines and all that garbage. They sure do love making tacky blurs all over the place.
