I watched the WWDC keynote on Monday, and I’ve been reading and listening to the reactions to it since then. I’ve noticed that most of the commentary hasn’t used the word design very much. This is a big contrast to last year, when iOS 7 had everyone talking about design. But I’d say there were more design changes to both iOS and OS X this year than last.
Agreed. Design is about making hard decisions, not painting the result.
