Brighter colors and flat icons just aren’t for everybody. That said, it seems that iPhone user Mark Menacher hates them much more than anyone else. CNET reports that Menacher has actually filed a suit against Apple in small claims court and is asking the company to let him remove the iOS 7 install file from his iOS devices. Menacher is particularly irked that the upgrade to iOS 7 happened automatically and that he has no way of going back to iOS 6.
“Apple’s disregard for customer preferences in relation to iOS7 is corporate thuggery,” he explained. “Steve Jobs was reportedly rough on company employees in pursuit of happy customers, but Tim Cook apparently cultivates a culture of contempt for customer satisfaction in pursuit of corporate profits. It is a policy that will eventually fail.”
It’s true that iOS 7 can be rather jarring for some longtime iPhone and iPad users when they first install it although many have gotten used to it after using it for a few weeks. For Menacher and those like him, however, it seems that nothing short of a return to the skeuomorphism of old will do.
