The new UI will be amazing I bet but what if there isn't any special features ? The whole fully integrating Facebook and other apps sounds too privacy destroying junk.....

What they need to do is make iOS 7 computer free so we can download songs without sync messing up the data if we needed to do some iTunes connection... Connecting the iPhone to the computer is a disaster because if we wanted to add personal videos or music from our computers to the iPhone
It won't work correctly
The whole iTunes library thing is ridiculously flawed.

They already got rid of the need for a PC with iOS 5 and iCloud.

At any rate, I am sure we will all be disappointed with it. We always are following a keynote. I can't remember a year when we weren't! :P

I guess I was happy after iOS 4 though when multitasking was finally added.

If by "We" you mean all the geeks that basically want iOS 7 to be a combination of Android and every jailbreak tweak that has ever been thought up, yeah basically it will be crap

iOS is 100x better than Android *now*, so it's hardly going to be "disappointing".

Apple: "Use what is essential, make it look and feel amazing, hide/trash ANYTHING that isn't required"

Google: "Ah, just throw it ALL in! :p "

You can bet the farm it's gonna be a disappointment just as 6 was. Won't be no real change and flattening icons is stupid.

I know that, and you know that. But it doesn't stop packs of the rest from complaining because they can't do this or that like they can in Android

I hope that there aren't any new "special features". I'd be much happier if they simply took a step back and just focused on dramatically improving everything we already have vs throwing in more superflous beta ware (Siri+maps+passbook).

That's called bug fixing - this is called a new OS - come on! Where's ya sense of excitement?! :D

Well yes, that's what we always expect and then everyone is disappointed.

I will be disappointed if the stock apps aren't updated with more than UI changes. They literally haven't changed in 6 years. That's ridiculous when you think about it.

What, more ridiculous than pre-emptively complaining about something that hasn't yet come to pass?

Oh, I'm not complaining. I am excited and a bit nervous about what's coming tomorrow, but I am hopeful.

baby steps towards improvement is all I ask. They don't need to make a perfect OS. Since that means something different to everyone anyway.

Unfortunately they are not compliant with E911 or I would too... :(

Personally, I've already made the decision to switch to Android. Depending on what iOS 7 brings will mean the difference between waiting out my contract or buying a phone full price.

Well, cool features but looks like Mickey Mouse designed the icons and UI.

Least I didn't get disappointed.
