iOS is a mobile operating system developed and distributed by Apple Inc. The user interface, is the industrial design field of human–machine interaction. iOS is based on the concept of direct manipulation, using multi-touch gestures. Interface control elements consist of sliders, switches, and buttons.

As of March 6, 2012, Apple’s App Store contained more than 550,000 iOS applications. With new applications released on a daily basis, the App Store is being flooded with apps that we should tap. More applications means more competition > more competition means higher quality development and design > higher quality development and design means time consuming hard work.

In order to attract new users, your application must be beautiful, fast, reliable, and easy to use. What makes your app better then your competitors? Why should the user give you their hard earned money? These are just some of the few questions you need to answer while designing your application. Today we are here to cover the beautiful part of the equation by providing quality examples of iOS user interface inspiration.
