Love it or hate it, live tiles are here to stay. Yes, Microsoft’s bringing back the Start menu, but the fact is, for a unified system interface, live tiles are still going to be very much present. Still, some lament that the live tiles serve no functional purpose other than looking pretty, and providing a tad more information than your regular icons. So what can Microsoft do about live tiles to make them better?
A month back we reported that Windows Phone 8.5 would bring a live tile overhaul, and now it seems that this feature will be coming to Windows as well.

The heart rate monitor seemed redundant; the back of the device was often compared to a band aid; and TouchWiz didn’t get the major overhaul that it was leaked to have.

The first is that this isn’t a “Windows Phone 8 VS iOS 7” article, but rather it focuses on my thoughts and experiences of using the iOS platform after transitioning from Windows Phone. The other thing to note is that I transitioned from a Lumia 820 to an iPhone 4S (yes, no fancy fingerprint-scanning 5s here, not even an iPhone 5). I understand that the user experience might be affected by the aged hardware of the iPhone 4S, but I will try and write this article strictly as a software comparison, and will try my best to ignore any shortcomings in hardware.
