The slow creep of Jony Ive's flat-friendly software design is starting to pick up its pace with the new beta version of That scratchy old black background is now dreamy blue and blurry just like iOS 7. The app icons have lost a dimension, as well, and now look like their iOS 7 counterparts. Frankly, it looks lovely.

The redesign doesn't just stop at the home screen. Clicking through shows that all of the apps (except Pages, Numbers and Keynote) have the same flat design and clean lines that will soon grace all iOS devices. Indeed, it's pretty impressive to see the new design spread out in a bigger format.

But you should see for yourself. Just go to for the new view.
