Did Apple copy Android in iOS 7?

ZDNet had an article back in June that examines whether or not Apple might have copied features found earlier in Android. I’m mentioning it now because it does seem to make a relatively sound case that Apple might have borrowed some ideas from Android.

There’s also a very relevant bit in a USA Today interview with Apple designer Jony Ive. I’ll just let you make up your own mind about this as it relates to the graphic posted below. Hmm.

Ive says that while he keeps a keen eye on competitors’ tech designs, he remains uninfluenced by them.

“We, and the people who buy our products, steer us,” he says. “It’s certainly not other corporations at all, and we’ve shown that for a long time.”
