The transition from iOS 6 to iOS 7 is a huge one, with the whole OS getting a fresh new coat of paint, trimming out fake leather and linen textures, and adding flat, colorful UI elements.

The transition is largely seen as a consequence of Scott Forstall’s ouster from the company, with Jony Ive taking up the task of redesigning iOS.

The animated GIF embedded below perfectly summarises the transition from iOS 6 to iOS 7, showing iOS 6 icons morphing into their iOS 7 counterparts as well as Forstall’s smile changing into Ive’s very serious face.


And here’s a still from the GIF showing a mashup of Ive’s and Forstall’s faces:
