Apple has just released an update to its iBooks application bringing with it a complete redesign. The wooden bookshelf, one of the last remaining skeuomorphic reminders of iOS 6, is gone and the whole application has been re-skinned with a minimal new aesthetic.
Apart from an aesthetic redesign, little else seems to have change – functionally, the app remains the same.
What’s New in iBooks Version 3.2
iBooks has been updated with a beautiful new design for iOS 7.
iBooks was one of the last remaining Apple apps that was waiting on a redesign. We’ve recently seen updates to Apple’s Remote app, Podcasts app as well as a full redesign of it’s iLife and iWork apps for iOS.
Additionally, Apple has updated its education focussed iTunes U app in a similar aesthetic fashion to iBooks, removing real-world textures and visual ornamentation.
