Well, based on the video I'd say its the most impressive thing UI-wise I have ever seen. Apple is back on the top :eek:

Wait... so Apple took Windows Phone, mixed it with BlackBerry OS 10, and they claim it's innovation? lolololol

Sure it looks good, but, we've seen this all before on other devices.

I'm so excited to try this. It's a little disorientating but I love trying new mobile OS's. This is really exciting. Kudos to apple for stepping outside the box. It's like WebOS meets Android meets iOS.

Looks good, except some of the frankly appalling icons. The mail and Safari icons, egads, the leaks were correct and look like a 10 year old made 'em.

It'll have to do a LOT to trade for my jb!

I am not much of a iFan, but i seriously hope that Apple has more in store for iOS 7 than just reskinning iOS 6.

Yipes, some of the new "features" are blowing my mind in how directly they are ported over from other mobile OS's.

I mean, don't get me wrong, they're long overdue, but this isn't innovation, it's just emulation.

...or, perhaps I'm being too hard on Apple. They're just "keeping up" with the times.

Everything except the icons look frankly gorgeous.

None of it beats out Zephyr, BiteSMS, Jellylock, f.lux, Nitrous, Adblocker etc though. Gimme functionality!!

Me too. I don't want it to become android because thats what I have android for but I really hope they have some under the hood improvements as well.

If they hold true to past releases, this won't be "officially" released until iPhone 5s drops..

Eh? I'll prob stick to my jb, but everywhere except the home screen looks gorgeous.

Those icons though, eesh. Look like clipart I'd get on Minerva discs I got 15 years ago.

Yeah "officially". But all of the tech-savy people will have it way before then. It's not like they'll ban you for it if you're a non-developer lol apple is a company and they don't care if someone has their OS early, as long as they have your cash.


And wow you guys are a hard group to entertain. "iOS doesn't have the basics, it's outdated" then they bring it new features to iOS "well they're just copying other OS'es and it's pretty ugly"

Oh right, I forgot that opening a slew of new threads and copying and pasting the same text in every other thread is only spamming if it's not an opinion. My apologies.

First impressions:

1. New app icons are fuuuuuugly. Horrible color choices. Fisher price colors.
2. Functionality looks amazing with control center etc.
3. Overly flat design will make many apps look very odd. This was a very very drastic design choice. Very utilitarian.

With all this serious stuff about iOS 7 and the WWDC coming out, I thought I would link to a parody article and lighten up the mood a little bit.

http://toastdispatch.com/ios-7-the-flat-side/

But seriously, what is everyone's thoughts on this new interface? I think it will take some getting used too. It's a really big change that was not transitioned into, jump right in and lets go.
