The Many Layers
A trend that has been created by iOS7 in the iPhone has literally left mobile users wanting for more! A layer effect that iOS introduced made showing hierarchy simple in a two dimensional display. This layering effect creates a 3D effect on a 2D phone. The phone would give out a parallax behavior. This you can notice well if you have used an iPhone 5s. This phone prominently shows the layering effect a design trend that will end up having a cool user experience.
The Blur Effect
There are some layers that are left blurred within the UI. This helps create hierarchy while maintaining the basic UI design. Rdio started this trend well before iOS7. This blur effect is not only creating aesthetic effect on the phone but also giving it a beautiful interface. Till now there is no consistency in the way the blur has been generated. But, the blur effect can be generated easily with time.
This is another up and coming trend. Navigation has been till now one of the most followed ways of transitioning from one point in the website to the other. But, more and more mobile app developers tend to be experimenting with the kind of transition that can be offered in a way to enhance user interface. A simple swipe can take you to the various tabs on the screen while the same finger with a small touch can create zooming effects on the screen. Basically iPhone brought in the single touch effect. Now, most phones are creating transitions based on such effects.
These are a few important mobile design trends that will definitely carry a lot of impact. Most of these trends have come around as a result of the design technology and techniques generated by iPhone.
