Xiaomi's Next OS Looks Strikingly Similar To iOS 181

stephendavion writes Looks like Chinese device maker, Xiaomi, is taking its "Apple of the East" tag too literally. First, their CEO brazenly copies Steve Jobs' signature look, sitting cross-legged on the floor. And now, Xiaomi's latest version of Android shamelessly rips off iOS 7. MIUI 6, which is Xiaomi's upcoming edition of Android for its latest phones and tablets, looks almost exactly like Apple's operating system for iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch. It features the same bright color palette and a flat design. Heck, it even does away with Google's "app drawer" and puts all apps on your home screen. It's like the CEO handed iPhones to the design team and barked: "Here, copy this!"

    cried out at once in terror that their over-priced Apple "innovation" was merely rounded corners and off-white color.

    This whole article is just a fanboy whining that a ching-chong-Chinese OS looks a bit like his beloved iPhone. It's borderline racist.

    But we'll let him off because he is gay

    Look at the screenshots! The text is in chinese! It's clearly different!

    It just looks like an Android phone with a makeshift iOS theme on it. If that's what the demand is for, why not supply it?
